They even do lead the series.

I think we are a little bit spoiled by having Kimo and Prongs.

With that being said I fully expect us to get a younger true #1 Dman the moment Kimo retires.
Umm, I think that both Chara and Edler count as franchise dmen. If you don't know who Edler is then I understand but he's pretty god damned good, FAR better than Carle, Coburn and Meszaros. Edler may be a lower end "top dman" but please don't deminish his abilities. We'd be damned lucky to have him here and if I could trade Timonen or Pronger for him then I'd do it in a second. He's already Timonens equal and in a few years when Prongers game declines and Edlers gets better then Edler will be a much better asset to have (maybe 2 years IMO).
