Stanley Cup winning teams:

Henri Richard and Ralph Backstrom.
Henri Richard and Jacques Lemaire.
Jacques Lemaire and Doug Jarvis.
Jacques Lemaire, Doug Jarvis and Pierre Larouche / Pierre Mondou
Guy Carbonneau and Denis Savard / Paul DiPietro

Listening to some of the geniuses here, if they had been in Toe Blake's shoes, they would have put Maurice Richard at center to get SIZE, and Henri Richard on the wing so that he wouldn't have to battle anyone. ROFL.
