i certainly wouldn't call nolan one-dimensional, but tocchet was certainly the superior playmaker.
one thing though, nolan has a lot of SH goals. but i remember him being below average defensively. am i remembering wrong?
tocchet was no selke guy, but he had definitely had a more than capable two-way game.
Nolan got a lot of PK time, but that may have been the result of him being one of the Sharks' few offensive threats for a couple of seasons and the fact that he could hit like a freight train. I don't remember him being that good defensively.
And I also don't think Nolan's peak ever matched Tkachuk's.
