Actually yes, and I’m not sure why you would even question it. Of course it was a team effort but his contribution was large. I suppose with his simple, non spectacular style, Hammer will always be underrated, but imo, when it comes to playing efficient defence, he is our best, and it’s not really close.
As for the under/over question… unfortunately logic dictates under. First off the line should start at .5, not 1.5… and if you don’t believe me, ask any NHL player that has a SC under their belt…. Including Hull and Mikita who both will say it was a given in their minds that they'd get another after ‘61 (and they had only 5 other teams to contend against in their day).
I think Pyscho put things into proper perspective in post # 76. The SC is often claimed as the most difficult championship to win, and for good reason. Short of the planets aligning, many things must fall into place to emerge the winner.
Not saying the present core will not win another, but we should savour winning it twice in the last 4 years.
