And on top of that the 90's Red Wings weren't in their primes at the same time. If we're going by primes I'll take the Avs trio over them without much thinking since I'd always take Sakic over Yzerman, Bourque easily over Lidstrom and Roy easily over Hasek and that line of thinking (basing your vote on primes without taking into account when their prime seasons took place) would be quite ridiculous.
