But really no one. They simply couldn't do that if they didn't have a guy who was as gifted and gritty as Nemchinov was. If he didn't have so much trouble finishing, he would be more remembered. He is the prototypical 3rd line center in that he could be used in so many situations and really made the guys he played with better. I'd love to see him coach the rangers one day.
And I also don't know if people realize,
but Zubov was the leading regular season scorer on the entire team.
He had more points than Mess, Graves and Leetch! And why they got rid of him I'll NEVER understand.
First time ever (and I believe only time) a Stanley Cup winning team was led in scoring by a defenseman during the regular season.
