Are you kidding, W98?
The 02-03 team had Fedorov, Shanahan, Hull, Datsyuk, Robitaille, Larionov.

it's grind liners were Maltby-Draper-McCarty -- A long, long, long away from Miller-Emmerton-Tootoo.

It's great that Datsyuk has helped Abdelkader stop posting minuses every game. But we need Datsyuk to be a threat every shift. The more dangerous he is, the better our team.
