And yet, when we look at the rosters and compare, you know damn well that we'd all prefer to play behind those Habs and/or Avalanche teams. The importance of the existence (vs non-existence) of Hall of Famers in a lineup isn't lost on anyone here, I'm sure, and then there's the calibre of player as we proceed further and further down the depth chart.
