Who was better....John Slaney or Chris Snell?
Since there isn't much to talk about....lets get it started. Who was the better dman?
Slaney or Snell?
I suppose if you want....add a debate for Sydor vs Zhitnik as well.

Slaney had that big slapper from the point. BOOM!

Slaney at least had a bit of an NHL career, whereas Snell lasted in the NHL for less then a season. Truth be told, while I recognized the name, I had to look Snell up to figure out who he was. I was able to remember Slaney without the aid of Google.
As far as the other debate, I think Zhitnik (especially on the offensive side of things) was a better player in his time with the Kings. However I have always viewed the Kings letting Sydor go for Shane Churla was a huge mistake. I'm going to give a slight edge to Sydor on this debate.

Slaney or Snell? Who was better? I couldn't care less. All I know is that those names conjure up bad memories of the immediate post-Gretzky, post-McNall years, among the Kings worst, and they've had plenty of them. I mean no disrespect to either player, but those were dark times.

Slaney by far.
Sydor by a little.
I wish I could add more. Thanks for the thread Hipcheck! I was starting to forget about what it was like to debate about hockey.

Slaney of course, but can't we get some love for Tim Watters?

My favorite Waters moment was when he dropped the gloves with Cam Neely. There was a bit of a height difference and Neely almost looked surprised when Watters asked him to go. Good times.

Going by the memory game I used above, I don't recall Watters (at all) however I do clearly remember Steve Finn so he wins this round. If we're going to play this game, which Vopat brother was better?
