Hell, that line led the team to two Stanley Cup Finals and lost only to the Gretzky Oiler Juggernaut, the 2nd time they went the full 7 games before bowing out.

Only the Gretzky, Lemieux and Bossy lines beat this line overall, maybe the Hawerchuk or Dionne lines on different occasions.

I also like the Pulford/Backstrom/Provost line a lot and hate the idea of breaking up the balance and (perceived) karma of that line for the sake of squeezing maybe 10 more goals out of the the other line? How do you know if Poulin fits in with Pulford or Provost?

You see this is what I don't get.....we're supposed to use these players in a scenario that is befitting of their era (supposedly)....so somehow a player from a different era in a different role, given the subjective analysis of their talents is supposed to (marginally) make them better?

It is all conjecture...
For what it's worth, I disagree with monster here. Leave your lines how they are.
