Used to love watch Balon, Fairbairn and Tkachuk, especially Tkachuk, perhaps the strongest player on his skates I ever saw, certainly on the Rangers. I remember Espo lining up Tkachuk for a blind side hit that saw Espo go flying and Tkachuk seeming surprised that something had hit him. And Espo was no small man.

Balon had one of those funny comb overs. Makes me miss helmetless players a little bit.
