Right wing is. Left wing is kind of absurd, although I think that's because many of the lists I see count Dubinsky as a LW.

We're basically in a position not entirely dissimilar to the Preds with regards to offensive players (lots of second and third liners), only y'all have more of 'em and we don't have an under-the-radar-first-liner (Erat) equivalent.

Also, you forgot Brassard and Letestu down the middle. Heck, MacKenzie took some top-6 draws last year.

That's because folks are so reluctant to even acknowledge our existence (let alone do research) that they've completely overlooked Moore and Savard, and have already forgotten who we picked 2nd overall.

Well, okay, I should be fair. Habs fans have definitely noticed Savard, to the point where it's kind of annoying.

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
