Shanny is the one who doesn't belong out of the foursome. He was great, but Abel, Dats, and Z have all been ELITE players as Red Wings. It's difficult to argue that Shanny was among the ten best forwards in the league as a Wing outside of 99-00. Abel, Dats, and Z I would say all had/are having an extended stretch as a top-five/ten forward. IMHO, Abel belongs above Delvecchio.
