Kopitar is good, but to me he is nowhere near that level either. See Quick playing insane hockey again. Two different teams, different styles, different top talent. Pittsburgh had arguably three of the best centers in the game for many years, and one Cup. Chicago played a much more offensive game, and granted Toews played great, but what's happened since?
I could go on and on..
Anyway, must head out, again thanks for the awesome peaceful discussions ladies and gents.
Your observations can't be more useless.
The whole point of talking about previous winners when you're rebuilding is to have a measuring stick to know where your own team stands, and in the end, we don't have a Toews, Crosby, Kopitar, Chara or Quick.
You can go on and on, but it would be a waste of time unless you could actually discuss how we go about getting any one of those kinds of pieces.
