Come to think of it, Brind would probably have played on the 1st PP line WITH Koivu due to the total lack of wingers, so whoever is 1st or 2nd C doesn't really matter at this point.

At one point, the Habs 1st line was Kilger - Koivu - Bulis. Heck, they even gave Odjick 1st line duties.
I get the nausea every time I think of Traverse logging in top-4 minutes and Dackell as their go-to PK guy.
