I think it's pretty safe to say that Amonte, Brind'Amour and Linden will be the next three to go in some order. Then it should get interesting.

Pretty sure Hill will get in right after them.

The greatest Canuck of all-time, Trevor Linden. Slightly ahead of Rod Brind'Amour. Both are vastly superior all-round players compared to Amonte and Kamensky.

Trevor Linden


I think he'd be a HOF candidate right now if he was never traded from Vancouver (that trade, plus the Keenan era, really crippled his production)

For all of you who voted for Amonte, remember this: You don't win with goals alone. Five Trevor Lindens will beat five Tony Amontes every time out, now or in their prime. Linden's a better faceoff artist, a harder worker, a better hitter, a better defensive player, has six 30 goal seasons on his resume, and would have had one more if not for the lockout. He's also the best leader from this draft class.

Trevor Linden is the Canucks all-time leader in pretty much every playoff category. It's been that way for a decade. Tony Amonte, with the exception of one game in the 1996 World Cup, has never gotten it done in the clutch.

If you think that goals are the be-all and end-all of the game, then you can vote Amonte. But remember, it's not just the team that scores the most goals that wins, it's the team that gives up the fewest. It's the combination of all factors that makes Linden (and Brind'Amour) better than Amonte.

Not sure how Rod Brind'Amour ranks this far below Linden. In fact, I'd take him before Linden. He's got about 100 more career points in 50-60 less games, their career playoff performance is pretty much the same in both games and points (he was huge for the Flyers and was one of the leaders of the young Carolina team that went to the Finals), he's also a terrific two-way player, one of the best faceoff men in the league for a long time.

But if you vote Linden over Brind'Amour, and either over Amonte, ask yourself this:

Who did Vancouver need more in their Stanley Cup run? The leader, Trevor Linden, or the goal scorer, Pavel Bure?

5 30-goal seasons and 3 40-goal seasons is pretty hard to ignore.

Linden was a more important player to the Canucks' run in 1994 than Bure. If all you look at is offence, then you'll probably want Bure. But if you look at the big picture and the total game, you'll recognize who was more important. Linden won all the big draws, hit everything that moved, carried the team on his back (along with McLean) those first six games in Calgary, backchecked, led by example on the ice and motivated the team off it. Oh yeah, he scored a point-per-game, too. Outside of the Dallas series, Bure was ineffective in over half of Vancouver's games, and pulled one of the most selfish acts ever when he threatened to hold out before Game 7 against Calgary if he didn't get a new contract.

Offence isn't everything. I reiterate my previous statements:
*5 Lindens will beat 5 Amontes, either now or in their prime, time in and time out.
*Linden is a far better clutch player than Amonte.
*It's not just the team that scores the most goals that wins, it's the team that gives up the fewest.

PS: How many players can say they're over a point-per-game pace in their careers for Game 7s? Linden can.
