4) Vladamir Konstantinov

5) Chris Osgood

6) Bob Probert

It's too difficult for me to pick 10 and try and rank them, so here's my top 4 in order:

1. Yzerman

2. McCarty

3. Shanahan

4. Lindsay

My other favorites include (in no order):

Holmstrom, Maltby, Draper, Osgood, Chelios, Lapointe, Franzen, Zetterberg, Helm, Howe, and Leswick.

I was born in 1976, so never saw Lindsay, Howe, and Leswick play, but would have been a big fan of the 3 of them for sure!

Oh this is not easy...

Pavel Datsyuk

Dino Ciccerelli (my apologies if I spelled it wrong)

Aaron Downey

Andreas Lilja

Valtteri Filppula

Gordie Howe

Steve Yzerman

Igor Larionov

Tomas Holmstrom

Darryl Bootland (Sue me - I always had a soft spot for Booter)

The order is subjective, but Pavel is on top. That is not a question.

I guess any list would have to consist primarily of players that I've personally watched.

1. Steve Yzerman (surprise!)

2. Pavel Datsyuk (the man is magic)

3. Darren McCarty (for single handedly sparking a great sports rivalry and being a Mo-Town hero)

4. Igor Larionov (Honestly I don't have a specific reason. I just always liked him as a player)

5. Chris Chelios (Best American to play and fun to watch in his prime)

6. Brendan Shanahan (Man I miss hearing the Irish jig)

7. Chris Osgood (Class act all the way)

8. Dominik Hasek (He was frustrating as hell sometimes but in the end I look back on his tenure here as good times overall, and pure entertainment to watch)

9. Ted Lindsay (Wished I could have seen him play)

10. Gordie Howe (Same as above, these two were only ranked so low because I've never seen them personally play)

Honorable Mentions: Zetterberg, Helm (Haven't seen anyone work that hard in years), Slava Kozlov, Konstantinov.

I was really excited about the Derian Hatcher signing years ago, too, and I imagine he would have been one of my favorites...you know, if he actually ended up playing.

EDIT: Oh, Pat Verbeek! I have this vivid memory of him taking out someone twice his size right at the faceoff back in 2001 if memory serves. I honestly don't remember much more than that but that alone has reserved a spot in my hall of Wings memories for some reason.
