Honestly, is he a worse choice than Shayne Corson in (pick em) 1991 or 1998? I don't think he is. Roberts already had a 72 point season in 1990 and while he dropped a bit in 1991 it wasn't as if Keenan was picking an all skill team. He chose a lot of pluggers and grinders over the likes of Yzerman, Oates, Sakic, etc. I'd say by 2002 he was too old and would have looked out of place although he did have that wonderful playoff in 2002. But I don't think he looks out of place in 1998. 1996 he was basically retired (temporarily) with his neck. In 1991 he would have looked fine on there. I mean, Russ Courtnall somehow cracked that team. You know one thing about Roberts, he would play 110%.
