Schriner - Morris - Larmer
I'm not even a Chicago fan but I'm a Larmer fan. Real class act and just a great hockey player.

Right, Larmer is one of those guys who just does everything well but not much outstanding (besides his durability) which is why he was under the radar somewhat for a guy who scored 1000 points in the NHL.

He wouldn't put the fear of God into anyone, but Larmer wouldn't back down from anyone either.

He played one a line with Goulet on the left side too who wasn't that brute mold.
Larmer is a real worker for sure and I mean 884 straight games has to tell anyone that he has some serious tolerance for absorbing the bumps and bruises along the way.

He can play on my team any day.
