Linden was a 4th liner. Naslund was a shell of his former self and was more of a detriment to his line than an asset. Morrison wasn't much of an impact player. Edler was a rookie who hardly played. Kesler was a mere third liner. Pyatt was a plug who produced because its hard not to when given first line minutes with the Sedins even before they became elite. This was Bieksa's first full season, and although it was good, the team offensively was lousy.
Luongo carried that team.
And yes. I take Hemsky over Kadri, Colborne, mid 1st.
You are correct, i read the underlined first in NHL and missed Northeast. My mistake and i apologise. I still don't think it's fair to say that the team was "sucky" as it contained the young peices that are now your core. That is like saying the Oilers are "sucky".
