Sharp to Chicago for nothing really really bothers me...

I believe the justification for letting him go was simply that we were too loaded up the middle, Sim experienced the same demise. I saw a lot of promise in his game, he was scoring even with seeing little time...off to the Hawks he goes, he went right up the depth chart and I just can't bear to imagine our future or even right now with him and Richie centering our lines.

Would never be the Lindros trade for me. That trade did an alful lot to make the franchise respectable again, and likely got the Wachovia Center built a few years before it would have otherwise. On top of that, he was damn fun to watch.

Of trades that I actually witnessed, and now watching Tampa tonight, Vinny Prospal to Ottawa might be one I'd take back, alough I'm not sure he would have ever developed properly here.

There was a time I would have agreed, but Preems won my heart in 04, second only to Kappy.

You have to remember that the true scoring line for the Avs was the Sakic line. Sometimes, the Avs through out Peter's line against the other team's top line because they knew that Peter could defend and check just as well as he could score and create.
They were pretty even defensively....Lindros was 100 times better on faceoffs

I call shenanigans here. He couldn't have been that many times better...can we get some statistical proof?

I wouldn't want that trade to happen either...but damn Boyle is good, and he was certainly showing it tonight.

OK, mybe I exaggerated a little, but faceoffs was never a strength of Forsberg and it was a strength of Lindros. Is that better?

Winning Cups seemed to be a strength of Forsberg, and Not of Eric's though.

Don't worry about it. I looked it up...turns out you were right! Peter's career faceoff percentage is 0.59%. Lindros for his career was 59%, which does in fact make Lindros 100 times better on faceoffs.

Crazy stuff...what a brutal stat for Peter!

Patrick Roy didn't really help Forsberg I'll go out on a limp and say if we had Roy we would have won a cup to.

A silly point. Obviously hockey is a team game. Roy, Sakic, Foote...etc., they were all instrumental in the Avs championships. But if you're going to try to negate Forsberg's cumulative effect on their winning, your point is about as misguided as they come.

Do us a favor and check Forsberg's playoff points and all-time PPG in the playoffs.
The guy just came up huge in the biggest moments of his career.

how is that a silly point? Forsberg's playoff stats aside, Roy was the biggest reason those teams won Cups. IMO

And Patrick Roy was the best playoff goalie of all-time. The guy won three Conn Smythe trophies. Im not negating anything Forsberg did, but Forsberg had a much better team around him then Lindros did. Go watch the Avs special on NHL Network, they talk about the first Avs cup team and how the Roy trade turned that franchise into a champion.

This isn't the worst, but it stands out in my mind. Comrie for Shawn Burke. Why?

It was out of necessity really. Hackett was retiring with vertigo and Esche was injured, leaving Antero Niittymaki of the Phantoms.
