I disagree. I think it's more of a reflection of who we're talking about, there are some pretty borderline names on there.

But the guys who had either the heart of the skills to make it have: Tyutin, Lundqvist, Prucha, Hollweg, etc.

The sad fact is that this team doesn't have much to point to in recent years in terms of slam dunk players.

Over the last 3 years I think we'd be hard pressed to find anyone who was ruined by their handling outside of guys who frankly VERY borderline NHL players.
