1996-97 Depth Charts

Would anyone have a depth chart type of thing from the 96/97 season? I'm trying to get an idea of which players were top 4 dmen for each team, this was the season before they started using real time stats.

Hope you find this helpful:

If you want to dig deeper in your analysis, I'd go onto hockey-reference and observe the games played column in regular season/playoffs to get a frame of mind on the usage of players.

For example, using the 1996-97 Red Wings as an example:
http://www.hockey-reference.com/teams/DET/1997.html

It's fairly obvious that the top two defensemen on that team were Lidstrom/Murphy (the plus/minus from the playoff stats gives that away). It's fairly common knowledge that the second pair was Fetisov/Konstantinov.

The Wings used Lidstrom so often that they usually played with 5 defensemen and had Lidstrom skate shifts with Rouse as well (even though they would dress 6 in the lineup, with the 6th defenseman being used sparingly, and was usually Aaron Ward or Jamie Pushor).

Bumping this to see if anyone has any scan of a Hockey News or something showing a depth chart. The other stuff has unfortunately not helped me figure out the top 3-4 dmen of each team.

Lines and pairings change over the course of a season. This is one attempt at the Flyers' lines and pairings for the season but certain players -- Dale Hawerchuk and Kjell Samuelsson for instance were injured which necessitated other adjustments. Dainius Zubrus played on the top line at times. Trent Klatt, among others, on the second line.
  • John LeClair - Eric Lindros - Mikael Renberg
  • Rod Brind'Amour - Dale Hawerchuk - Dainius Zubrus
  • Shjon Podein - Joel Otto - Trent Klatt
  • Dan Kordic - Daniel Lacroix - Scott Daniels

Pat Falloon, Vinnie Prospal and John Druce were inserted in the lineup at different times.
  • Chris Therien - Eric Desjardins (more so as the season advanced; Therien was paired with Kjell Samuelsson who was injured for about four months.)
  • Janne Niinimaa - Paul Coffey
  • Petr Svoboda - Karl Dykhuis

That's such a strong line-up, can't believe those mid/late 90s Philly teams didn't do more...

Me either, especially with Lindros at his peak. They only made 1 finals appearance and they were swept.
