really helps Team Joe's forwards look great. For defenders I had to cheat and sink to using a couple of Joels though. May as well toss Joel Otto in instead of Kocur, but hey, why not have a goon?

Joe Malone - Joe Sakic - J. Maurice Richard
Joe Juneau - J. Henri Richard - Joe Mullen
Joe Pavelski - Joe Thornton - Joe Lamb
Joe Primeau - Joe Niewendyk - Joe Murphy
Joey Kocur
You forgot Joe Carveth. And also, I don't think Mullen needs two playmakers feeding him pucks while Malone and Richard have to share Sakic. Let's shuffle.

Malone/Sakic/Primeau (player/coach)
Juneau/H.Richard/M.Richard
Pavelski/Thornton/Lamb
Juneau/Nieuwendyk/Carveth

You forgot to make Dave Lewis a player/coach on defense instead of just an assistant coach.

Also, Taylor should be on that first line, not Backes. Backes should be with Poulin and Bolland.

Andreychuk/Keon/Taylor
Gagner/Krejci/Vyborny
Booth/Legwand/Clarkson
Backes/Poulin/Bolland (No goal for you!)

And Tanabe should be with Manson... Manson was slooooooooooooow. Tanabe didn't have a lot, but what he did have was SPEED. He was like Brett Lebda, only capable of playing at the NHL level without being shielded by a late-career HHOFer, who was still one of the league's best defensive defensemen. Chelios' shielding of Lebda basically cost the Wings Quincey, Meech (solid two-way #5 with speed who can also play forward; I'm genuinely shocked he doesn't have an NHL job right now), and a first rounder (getting Quincey back last year).

Strader!!!

I love Ken Daniels... but I would trade him to get Strader back in town.

Davidson is a bit of a stretch. That's like putting Curtis Joseph as the starter on team Joe (which is even more lacking than Calgary in net, both with Joey MacDonald as the starting goalie right now).

In fairness to me, he had much more success as an assistant coach than as a player, seeing as though he won 3 Cups under Bowman.

Gotta admit I didn't put much thought into line combos, per se...but yes your lines make much more sense.

Had trouble coming up with a Dave who was a color guy, but that reminded me that Dave Hodge can host the pre- and post-game shows.

Kwiatowski was a journeyman during the dead puck era mostly as a 7th defenseman but managed to get on some poor teams rosters, most notably Thrashers and Caps. Drafted by Dallas iirc

Oh ya, here we go, looked him up. Still playing in the Swiss A League with Fribourg. Great tune by Lynyrd Skynyrd btw. Anyhoo... bounced around a fair bit. AHL, NHL. Caps, Sens, Pens etc. Defencemen. Big fella.
