Clarke had a deal in place to trade Lindros instead. But Snider wouldnt sign off on it. So they traded Brind'Amour instead. Some remembered why that trade happened.
There was a rumor that Tocchet and Lindros had more then words over it.

Highlights and stats just will never do it justice. Unless you were watching it as it happened you'll never understand just how dominant it was. I've never seen anything like it.

There were times in that run he put the entire team on his shoulders and would completely dominate his entire shift. It is one of the best "carries" I've seen.

I had this poster on my basement wall at college in Ohio. Anytime people asked me who it was, I would laugh and slap them

To this day that roster still goes down as my favorite lineup. It was really our last chance with that band of veterans to get it done and they came so damn close. LeClair, Amonte, Primeau, Gagne, Roenick, Handzus, Dejardains, Kapanen... ect. I don't think that I have loved any roster top to bottom as much as this one. Even if we had won in 2010 I still would favor this group of players.

that team from the 2004 run is one of my favorite teams ever. Everyone left it all on the ice during that run. Its a shame they were so decimated with injuries. especially on the blueline.

That 2004 series vs TB is so vivid to me it feels like it ended yesterday.

This. I haven't been able to fully fall in love with a team since then. Maybe it's because we haven't had a group together long enough to really latch onto. That group also had the best game intro song which I think we should bring back.



EDIT: How could you forget Recchi and Zhamnov?!

IIRC Hextall was the first player on the losing team to win the Conn Smyth. He certainly was great but that team around him was no slouch (we had a lot of injuries both times we played the Oilers in the finals and took them to 6 and 7 games I think).

Umberger had a great series too but IMO he did not look like a man amongst boys the way KP did in that playoffs.

Hextall was the 4th player in history to win it while being on a losing team.

The 2000 & 2004 teams had really good chances to win the Cup. If only they could have gotten by New Jersey & Tampa Bay.

Seeing Brashear in the beginning of that video reminded me of this:

I was there. We were blowing them out with like 3+ minutes to go and people started leaving. I always stayed till the end of the games no matter the score...

Then we had 30 more minutes of fighting and I had an evil grin the whole time wondering how ****** those people felt after they found out what they missed.

It's too bad, at that point on Brind'Amour was far better than Lindros and with him and Primeau the Flyers would have had two Selke candidates playing center.

Obivously there are a lot of what ifs but you got to wonder about how 2000 could have ended with Brind'Ampour instead of Lindros

I wonder how 2000 could have ended if there was no Stevens.

Had their not been a lockout after that year I really think we could have won the cup. Oh and this is my favorite playoff play ever. Poulin scores on the Quebec 5 on 3 and the building was so loud. The goal basically ended the series, just ripped the hearts out of Quebec and sent us into the Finals, only to lose in 5 against the Gretzky, Coffey, Messier, Kurri, Fuhr team.
