Yeah, I've come across a historical reference to the size and finishing ability that Barry provided that dimunitive Weiland lacked. It was seen in at least one account as the turning point for the Red Wings.

How do you figure that? Between 1925 & 1939 the highest scoring forward was Nels Stewart, a record he broke in 1937, only surpassed in 1952 by Maurice Richard. Still holds the record for fastest 2 goals apart. 4 seconds. How mindblowing is that?

1925-1939 is the 30s?

Neil Broten in 1995 is a good one. Before him, the Devils best scoring line centers were some combo of Corey Millen, rookie Sergei Brylin and rookie Jim Dowd.

Shawn Chambers was a great deadline acquisition too, but scoring line center was by far the biggest hole on that team going into the deadline

Goring is the first guy to come to mind, I think. Hard to imagine this now, but the Isles were a team in need of direction prior to 1980. Veteran direction that is.

Shanahan is another of those missing pieces but I'm not sure was any bigger than when Murphy was picked up. Both played key roles in 1997 for the Wings.

Bill Guerin in 2009 for the Pens. He was old then, but played out of his mind for his age and gelled rather well with Crosby. When he was picked up at the trade deadline you didn't think much of it, but he racked up 15 points that spring.
