Agreed but how do you see Adams vs Guidolin then? If you call it a wash, shouldn't I be calling Guidolin better then?

Please tell me where you’re getting this from! You didn’t search out old “God Bless Canada” posts, did you? Because that’s the only place I’ve ever seen Gee to have “notable” defense. He’s likely passable considering he was on a lower line in the O6 and had some SHP, but that’s all we know, and we looked. (try searching “Gee” in google archives!)
Maybe I'm wrongly taking his PK ability as defensive ability

Murzyn, yes, but Bowman and Reid? I’m not seeing it in your bios. They seem like steady defensive specialists.

I took that as evidence Bowman like to threw his weight around. I've got the quotes about him fighting, but I'll try to find more about his nastiness.

I don't have evidence that Reid was mean, but his coach praised his ability to land his hits. He was probably more steady than the other two, but he still seemed to hit.

Why not though? Sykora is your best weapon, but he was never a burner in his career right? I mean he essentially got run out of town by Byslma because his skating wasn't up to snuff.

edit: just checked your bio and it seems he was noted for his speed for a number of years early in his career, before slowing down. Nothing too special there I guess.

*Byslma's idea of a breakout has the wingers quickly skating up ice to try to deflect in, or get close enough to waive off the icing, a headman pass fired up from the defensive zone. With the skating required and forechecking that follows the attempted deflect-in Sykora just wasn't a good fit.
