Haha! No doubt this would be the picture:

I agree. Linden was more based on skill...

However when I say Trevor Linden, I think that's kind of how we will think of him in a few years.

Linden's value wasn't in point totals...which weren't bad either. But both were great leaders, but played a solid two way game, they both played with a lot of heart and both are absolute warriors. After all...he'll play on crutches.

Both are/were crucial to their franchise success.

It would be no surprise to me if in 15yrs time we see a number 16 hanging from the rafters.
