Anyway, I think Broten would have been great on those cup teams, and even Brodeur, Stevens or Nieds wouldn't have turned the 80s Devils into winners in Broten's place.
Maybe, maybe not. As it happened, he was a good player on crappy teams. Driver benefited heavily in this poll from being a 1995 Cup winner, and a former Devils captain. That's the only explanation I can think of.
