Leafs

I woudn't go as far to compare any current Leaf to any of those greats, but I think the one biggest comparisson I can make (I'm not old enough to really know the old timers) is to Dougie Gilmour. Darcy Tucker is looking alot like him, small, tough, quick, if Tucker could just get his scoring to happen at about 4 times the pace it is now, he might be Gilmour. Owen Nolan is kinda like Clark...I'm not too sure about most of the others.

You dont have to be around the time some of these guys were playing. Just the style they did play.
