the 02-04 teams had Lewis behind the bench, Joseph in net, Robitaille, Hull, and Shanahan all playing like deadweight by the end. The 02-03 team had terrible luck with blueline injuries. Fischer was out early, and Chelios played injured/out a good chunk of the year. For a while there it was Lidstrom leading a rotating group of Wallin, Kooz, Bykov, Dandenault, Woolley, Boileau....he should have won the Hart that year.
Though Hatcher was hurt most of the season...maybe someone knows the actual line-up?
I liked that 2004 for most that didn't win a Cup of these Ken Holland builded teams.
I remember when they started the season with Lidström-Hatcher -pairing and that was truly the most dominating shut-down defence pair ever I have ever seen... ...and then Hatcher blowed his knee. That fun lasted for 15 games. Then he was at 50% condition at the playoffs, started warming up again, and the Flames beat us up at 2nd round.
