Take those three away and the Habs don't win 4 in a row.
Take away all 3 then yes they don't win 4 but they maybe win a couple still, take away just one and replace them with a league average player those Hab teams probably still win 4 Stanley Cups.
Throw in the Norris track record of the two d-men and the Selkes with Gainey and you've still got HHOFers.
When the next strictly defensive forward gets into the HHOF then I'll agree on Gainey but I won't be holding my breath on that one.
As for their Norris voting records, there are probably guys with better voting records that aren't in the hall but I'd ahve to look into that.
Those 3 were more of an afterthought, I'll stand on Barber, Shutt and Cheevers in that we are going to see guys not getting into the Hall with better overall careers IMO.
