The top line is the top line more for years on the team. The second line is the same as Mad Habber and is probably the best line.
Dino makes my team because I'm biased to 1981 and his 14 playoff goals puts him at 5th in franchise history at the end of 81. Besides this is one of the few all-time teams he'll make.
Defense doesn't leave you with many options. mbhhofr may not like Lou Nanne, but there aren't many great options. Hartsburg's probably the only one I'd pick and actually like, as opposed to hating less than all the others.
1: Gilles Meloche
2: Cesare Maniago
Gump shouldn't make it. With my 1981 bias, I'd even put Beaupre ahead of Gump (as a North Star).
Since the timeline ends in 1981, Meloche's bad years don't weigh him down, and he has playoff success. Maniago deserves some credit for being a decent goalie on a team with defencemen that I couldn't be bothered to sift through because they were so mediocre.
