Any reason we are going with 3 seasons? Pat Lafontaine really impressed me when he was here before we killed him.
Didn't know Bathgate played RW, I would have sworn he was a center. Thanks for the info.
We originally decided to open the door to any player who played center for at least 75% of a minimum 4 seasons. Exceptions were made for Gretzky and Nilsson. Gretzky played three very-high level seasons for the Rangers. Nilsson played 3+ before his career was cut down by injuries.
I'd be happy to add Lindros and Nicholls to the list if you think they deserve consideration. I certainly don't want to preclude someone from arguing in favor of a player before the voting rounds begin. If the consensus is that a player with 2 very strong seasons is more worthy of being on a franchise's all-time list than a player with 5 or 6 above average seasons, then so be it. That's what the voting process is for. What are other people's thoughts on this?
