Not when compared to a guy like Theo Fleury or Marty St Louis.
Cliff was a real good player for his size but he didn't play in the high trafic areas like those other two guys and his next hit will be his first. Ronning was a slick passer with great skill but he was a perimeter player. Really who can blame him being the size he was ???
I was obviously being facetious comparing him to Tootoo and Nordmark to Stevens but my point was that T Linden was not close to the phyical beast that S Doan is. Linden was 195 pounds soaking wet on a 6 ft 4 frame.... He is a twig. Doan is 30 -4 0 pounds heavier and a fuck of a lot stronger and tougher than Linden ever was.
