Sedin - Sedin - Burrows was far better than the WCE.
In 3 the years from 2001-2004 the WCE put up 701 points
Bert 242, Nazzy 278, and Mo 181
They averaged 80, 93, and 60 pts each respectively over that time.
While you can argue that the Sedins with Burrows have approached those types of number recently (since about 2010), you have to take into account that Morrison was the defensive presence on that line and was not expected to score so much as to hang back and cover the door. He averaged 60 pts despite that role.
Burrows doesn't have the same role. He's expected to produce on that line.
It's hard to really compare these kinds of things as we are also talking about different eras.
IMO though the WCE is the best purely talented line we've ever had here. As short lived as it was.
The one reason I think that they were so successful is that they were wholly unpredictable. In that way they are very much UNlike the Sedins and the way they approach the game.
Both amazing lines, but I'm going with WCE.
Who's next? With this organization who knows.... Jensen seems to be a popular pick and I think he's going to be a helluva player for us. He is a *pure goal scorer which is something we haven't had here for a long time. (yes I include Daniel here)
Maybe some of the Schroeders or Jensens will surprise us, or maybe we'll see another massive 7 player deal like Quinn pulled off to send us to the Finals.
I really don't care, Just get it DONE for once.
