I always thought Brendan Witt would've been an ideal fit for that 2002 team
. Could play top 4 minutes and bring a physical edge that was missing with Jonsson/Aucoin and Hamrlik.
O well, fun to think about the "what ifs" of the past
Yes, yes a thousand times yes. I have always said the same thing... especially after Witt signed with the Isles much later. Witt's first two years with the Isles under Nolan was exactly what the Jonsson/Aucoin/Hamrlik Isles were missing.
In fact, I would say that the current Isles could really use a Sillinger (another Nolan era player) type second line center right now.
