i would say the glue guy of the line is gordie howe.

great thing about howe was that he was a glue guy, puck carrier, sniper, slot man, playmaker, backchecker, etc.

but howe is certainly better used for his offensive skills than for his intangibles. howe usually played with a playmaking C (abel, delvecchio, ullman), but nieuwendyk was more of a goalscoring net man. this could reduce howe's production.
