Not really. They were pretty even defensively, and Turnbull may have been better offensively. But not by much, either way. And I watched them both play basically their entire careers.

I'm not saying Lapointe was bad. Of the names listed in the Hockey News article, he would be the last I would want to see out. But I think there were several better at the time. JMHO.

BTW, I don't think Larry Murphy could carry Lapointe's jock strap, yet he is revered.

Whatever.....
