Federko was elected in 2002 so there was plenty of time to digest his career.

I think Federko is an underrated as a player by many. St Louis never really went far in the playoffs sans one year, but Federko always seemed to do well in the playoffs, at least as well as he did in the regular season.

Some of the guys who were centers on the 1981 team were...

Gretzky
Trottier
Dionne
Perreault
Goring
Plus Duguay had that awesome hair going on

Didn't Perreault play on the top line with Gretzky (C?) and Lafleur (RW?)? So he would have been a LW in that tournament? And when he was injured, Dionne took his place...

But like I've 'always' said, if Canada had depth anywhere, it was at center - even in 1972 (Esposito, Clarke, Ratelle, Perreault, Mikita, P. Mahovlich...)
