Backstrom, Ovie, Johansson, Laich, Chimera, Hendricks - that's a decent start up front. they gave too much term to Ward, but hey, still a decent role player. Hunter had them really committed defensively altogether, but that back-end sucks out loud - something i have said for YEARS now. Alzner and Carlson are terrific pieces, but the rest of that group, no matter how good you may argue them to be individually (like Hamrlik for instance), collectively, they are junk.
