Am I missing something about Richard Martin? If he's decent defensively, then how many players aren't? I mean, Martin's not a known cherrypicker like some other guys, but what makes him better defensively than Selanne?

Messier vs Trottier is an awesome matchup - I'm sure they had some epic battles in real life.
