I wrote it down in the draft thread and I will write it down again in here: I would love my line of Alf Smith-Eric Lindros-Didier Pitre going against Phil Housley. Yes he do have Jack Crawford and Jacques to help him out, but I feel that in a All-Time draft context Phil Housley would get light out against those type of physical, offensive line. There's still some great #4 defenceman still available. #6 defenceman, double shift the PP. That's what I would do, but I'm curious what's the other think about this situation.
