like others say, we all knew how good mitchell was, long before he ever played for us. he ended bertuzzi's peak in the '03 playoffs.

but that said, let's not pretend that a good portion of this fanbase hadn't turned on him the summer before he left. what pat kane did against us in that first blackhawks series, so even before the concussions uncertainty, made a lot of people say big willie was too slow for the new NHL.

but i will say that the mitchell/salo pairing, when they were put together, was the best shutdown pairing i've ever seen in this city.
