Erskine was part of our best D pair (Poti and him) vs the Flyers in the playoffs. He had a very very good year the next year or the one after that.
His game dipped when we had a very "structured" approach under BB and then Hunter. At least that is what I saw.
And in our best year he was either injured or Joe Corvo pushed him out of the lineup. My memory is hazy about that.
Erksine was paired with Eminger vs the Flyers. Poti and Jurcina absolutely stunk that series up.
In the Montreal series Erskine didn't play at all because Boudreau was scared ****less by the Habs' speed. The 3 LDs were +50, Poti, and ShaMo. When ShaMo got hurt TFS got that spot because of his Olympic skating. Then when Poti went down Alzner finally got called up and took that spot.
