Different PK requirements,styles, philosophies from different eras.Will not go into details about these differences but the common ground with Bure and Hull is their elite skating ability. In 4 on 5 the skating would compensate for other shortcomings. Also you have to ask the question - who else on the team would have been a better choice?
