One thing that Toe Blake and Scottie Bowman both have on Al Arbour is that they both succeeded in different eras with basically or completely different teams (the 50s Canadiens and 60s Canadiens had the same top 2 centers but a completely different construction otherwise).

Peca's a very good pick I think if you want a defensive specialist. IMO, he's the best combination of grit, shutdown ability, and leadership since Carbonneau.
