I remember my Blues of the 90's... Kelly Chase, Tony Twist, Bam Bam Basil Mc Rae... All on the ice at once!

BLues traded Jamal MAyers today... may become a Pens fan yet!
That whole division was tough in the mid 90s. The Blues had Chase, Twist and McRae, Toronto had Tie Domi, Wendel Clark and Ken Baumgartner; the Blackhawks had Cam Russell, Bob Probert, Jim Cummins and later Stu Grimson; Detroit also had Probert and Cummins in addition to Dennis Vial and Darren McCarty; and Winnipeg before they left for Phoenix had Domi, Kris King and Jim McKenzie. Even the Penguins at one time dressed Marty McSorley, McKenzie, Rick Tocchet and Kevin Stevens in the same lineup. There aren't even 5 teams in the league today with even half that much toughness in the lineup - those teams (except the Pens of course) all played in the same division.
