And God damn, I would have LOVED to see this place's reaction if we hadn't signed any top six forward that offseason after losing Hossa, Malone and Roberts.
Big difference. we didn't have anyone as good as Kunitz or Neal going into the 2009 season. Sykora was the best wing on the roster. Without Feds and Satan, the next best would have been...Dupuis?
