I gave some thought to this combo. One of my favorite moments as a fan was the Boston playoff game 6.

JP was an absolute hoot to watch. Dustin Brown with less scoring responsibilities and more crush the opponent responsibility. One of my faves too.

I love this video, Dionne (da doo ron ron) Goring and Vachon featured along with the Fabulous Forum. (Quality has suffered some):

Old Kings fans check out the music at the end of the piece. When that came on the radio bliss was never far behind.

The question is not who is your favorite king, its who is the BEST king. With that in mind if your going on talent alone you have to go with #99.

Top 5 favorites:
Juha Widing (Silky smooth skater with blond locks)
Bernie Nicholls (Loved that Pumpernickel)
Dave Taylor (What can a say about Mr. Taylor but 100% every game)
Ziggy (Great Player)
And even though he only played 1-1/2 seasons with the King's Adam Deadmarsh (If I coached I would want 22 Adam Deadmarsh'es)

Just wondering if this was intentional?

Maybe it was, a little forshadowing. Who knows, by the time he's done, he could be the greatest King of all.

Agreed, but Marcel Dionne is the runner up in both categories.
