I gotta think that Whitney and Bakes would also deserve some consideration from the old days, for their overall play and their respective playoff series winning plays.

I still think Iafrate was the best Dman we ever had, if only he'd been able to play more than 10 games a season or whatever.

I kinda miss the ol' days when we had no expectations.
That one season was so remarkable. I think we even had a parade downtown if I remember correctly.

Al "The Planet" Iafrate had such a bilstering shot ... Suter was good and so is Blake but neither are in the league of Iafrate. He would have been another consideration but he was 1) such a space cadet and 2) always hurt that it was hard to rank him ahead of a more contraversial pick like Rathje who everyone loved to hate in the day.
