And yet, that's exactly what I've done.
Roy Conacher-Syl Apps-Gordie Drillon
Keith Tkachuk-Dale Hawerchuk
Apps is obviously a first-line player. Conacher is a first-line LW in a 40-team ATD. To top it off, Hawerchuk could have been a first-line center this time around (he was exactly the 41st center picked).
Tkachuk's powerplay dominance is an asset, not a negative like you portray it to be, and he's been given the supporting cast (two of the four other forwards and Denis Potvin) to succeed.
