And when he got mad, he became a better scorer. Instead of going Lapointe and just getting himself thrown in the box for nothing, he'd channel it into an overwhelming offensive push. Dude was money.
I'd still take Z over Shanahan. Shanny is a hall of famer and one of the greatest goal scorers ever, but Z has done things in the playoffs that Shanahan never did or could do.
