I also think you're underrating Gilmour and Brind'Amour's defense. They were very, very good. Gilmour was basically Peca for the first three years of his career before he exploded in the 1984 playoffs.

And I'd suggest if you're 'choking on your own rage', you are tad bit emotionally attached to Fedorov and probably not looking at this objectively.



Actually, I'm not seeing all the really top-notch History board posters defending Fedorov. I mean, Big Phil went with Selanne. That's not to besmirch the guys who like Fedorov, I'm just saying that your view of this as a couple of Selanne fanboys arguing against all common sense is not at all accurate.
i'll put together a post about fedorov's defensive abilities relative to the two-way stars of his generation, as well as the selke guys (madden, lehtinen, peca). but that will have to come later-- other stuff to do right now.

for now, i'll just note that i don't actually care about fedorov. i'm not russian, despite what my username that references a guy who had a cup of coffee with the canucks suggests, and my second favourite team during the detroit bowman era was actually colorado-- huge roy fan, always had a soft spot for my hometown boy sakic.
