And Moose Johnson is one of the most elite defensive defensemen ever. Don't overrate Steve Shutt either - without Lafleur, you've never even heard of Steve Shutt. As for Francis, he won't score the goals, so it'll be a relatively simple task to make his playmaking abilities ineffective.. just take the shooting lanes away from Conacher.
