Obvious homer comment. Habs would've eaten Brodeur ALIVE. Truth is, Brodeur, well, he kinda, sorta really sucked.

Here's my '82 heresies:

[1] Stan Smyl & Thomas Gradin were actually the two key performers on the Canucks team during that run


[2] Brodeur was heavily protected by Roger Neilson's defensive system. He was toast once he met the Islanders. The myth of King Richard lives on!

/end hijack

back to the thread...

Jets entering the NHL with their core intact say 75-76 or 76-77 would've been a competitive team, but I can't see them beating the Habs, & they would've had trouble beating some of the other top teams of the era in the playoffs like the Flyers, Bruins, Rangers & Sabres.
