Appreciate where your coming from there
but that line-up looks pretty solid, no need to be messing with it. Bobby Clarke, y'know, I thought/think he was a tremendous
player. Great leader. But for an International Series, no, sorry. Dont want any Cowboys crossing lines, shooting up the town. And lets face it, that was about 50% of Clarkes game. Agitator, instigator & pest. Bold as brass. Excellent in the NHL. No problem with that, can deal with it, different culture & environment. Houle far more esoteric, refined, an artist. Thats what you needed. Not some Bronc Bustin Steer Wrestler outta Flin Flon. Pete Mahovlich, God love him, but look, simply didnt have the wheels, full mobility Id want. Wasnt the Total Package. And yes, Jean Ratelle a nice addition. As a spare.
