which two players?

If you could take any two players (one offensive and one defensive) from the Gainey era, who would you take?

Forward- Koivu

Defense man- Schneider.


(in their primes, obviously).

Kovalev Komisarek

Prime obviously.

We'd get another first line winger and the big D we are looking for ATM.

We'd have to keep Komo far from Lucic though.

Forward :

Prime Alex Kovalev (with our current situation at center he would be more useful than Koivu)

Defensemen :

Ryan McDonagh

Koivu is surely better than Gomez and Markov.

I love Koivu as much as anyone, but a prime Gomez had something like 84 points one year? He was a better player.

I'd take Kovy & Theo. Picking just one player at forward is hard due to positions, but Theo was amazing.

in their prime,

Forward: Kovalev (Unless Gilmour counts as a Gainey era player? I can't remember)
Defenseman: Markov (h.m. Subban and Schneider)

Must agree with most, Koivu in a heart beat. No, he was not the greatest player, but he gave his all, and his courage was transmitted to the rest of the team. Our current team plays like it has no leadership, even though it has some leaders.

On defense, I'd take Souray, even with his defensive flaws and injury-proneness. We need his character, physicality, huge cannon and fighting abilities. We just need to pair him with the right guy... Gorges type, ideally a bit faster on his skates.

HM to Higgins, who had lots of heart when he played here (before the Darkest Day in Habs History) and Streit, who could also help us.

Prime Koivu and Schneider were not drafted and developped in the Gainey era... Don't know why they would be deemed 'from the GAiney era', which implies he deserves some credit for their performances.

Offense: Kovalev in 2008

Defense: Josh Gorges
