Granted those two draft classes have had a couple more years to develop but I just don't see the Sedins, Stefan or Brendl putting up the kinds of numbers that Legwand and Lecavalier did last year. In relative perspective, I'd definitely say that 1999's top 4 was a bust. You can't honestly tell me that you'd rather have Henrik and Daniel over Marleau and Thornton..
Heh. Dont' think soooooo. Imagine Marleau and Thorton on the same line? Wicked!

But I wonder how much trashing those guys would have had if they had played all their games on the same line, and if Marleau was injured for one of those years?

Anyhow, I think the Sedins still have tons of improvement to do, and are showing they are at least heading in that direction.
