Don't get me wrong, he was solid in his prime, but who here can honestly say that Ohlund has a shot at the hall of fame or even having his jersey retired? Also, let's face it, Crow wasn't exactly stressing D in the WCE days.

I didn't really become a Canucks fan until Grade 3, so I guess that was '92, but I would've figured we had had better dmen than what I've seen over the last couple of decades.
