I got thinking about who should have been Wu's five generals after Han's question so decided to revive this thread.

I'm basing my choices on the criteria that Chen Shou seemed to have selected when making his groupings in the SGZ. Those factors seemed to be:

1) That they weren't family (so not Sun Ce).
2) Not commanders-in-chief (so no Lu Meng, Zhou Yu or Lu Xun).
3) That their career peaked during the lives of Liu Bei/Cao Cao. So for Wu during the lives of Sun Ce and Quan (so no Ding Feng).

Therefore I'm going to pick:

1) Cheng Pu
2) Huang Gai
3) Taishi Ci
4) Gan Ning - pains me to do this, I can not stand the man but he was an important military figure for Wu.
5) Ling Tong

The three who I also considered are Zhou Tai, Zhu Ran and Han Dang.

Theres another criteria in which all Five should die roughly in the time period with one outlier. Zhao Yun for the Five Tigers and Zhang He for the Five Elites
Liu Bei did nothing wrong.
