Well, who would you want on the blue line on the PP waitng for a pass?

* For other, post your pick.

It still would be nice to have that one guy. (Jordin Tootoo, wish granted)

one answer for that blue line PP pass: Lidstrom!

For sheer power, give me the Wild Thing, Al Iafrate. MacInnis is just underneath him and wasn't as injury prone. I can't comment on Bobby Hull and Redmond, never saw either play. I know Bobby had a monster cannon, but also played with sticks which would be illegal nowadays.

My List
Iafrate
MacInnis
Bobby Hull
Brett Hull
Sergei Fedorov
Mickey Redmond

Bobby Hull.

Other guys to consider:

Iafrate had the cannon in the All-star skill competition, but as for the most devastating shot during games on a regular basis, I'd have to go with MacInnis.

(And I never saw Bobby Hull play so I can't comment, but I know he had a hard shot)

Bobby Hull
Reed Larson
Dennis Hull
Al MacInnis
Bernie Geoffreon

PP blueline passer -- Bobby Orr, Marcel Dionne, Borje Salming, Brad Park and Lidstrom.

Worst point shot: Terry Harper -- he'd float it in there or fan (gosh we were bad back then) which would crack everybody up. laugh.gif

Nobody ever even came CLOSE to what Iafrate would shoot, up to 105 at the shot competition, but was gunned at up to 110 at other times.

Iafrate edges MacInnis in my book.

They didn't have radar when Gordie Howe was shooting the puck. I couldn't imagine where he is on the radar. Give me Gordie.

MacInnis has the shotgun in my opinion.

It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).
