Defensemen comes in pairs, duh

Jason Wryghte, Trenton, Ontario

The Top 100 Players of All-Time by Position misses the mark. By only having one defenseman, the top lineups for each team are always shorthanded.

I've never seen this done in a hockey mag before. It seems like the kind of weird thing a baseball fan might do if they were making a hockey lineup, not realizing defensemen come in pairs.

I've kept dozens of THN special editions over the years, including my 2000 copy of the Top 100 players, but this 2010 edition is in the recycling bucket.
