If you could create a roster using your all-time favorite Wings players (see: not best players, but your personal favorite), what would the team look like?

Shanahan Yzerman Franzen
Datsyuk Zetterberg Holmstrom
Larionov Draper McCarty
Downey Helm Probert

Lidstrom Konstantinov
Fisher Kronwall
Murphy Chelios

Hasek Osgood

I think this is what my roster would look like, but I'd like to see everyone's. My third line looks just as awkward as my first line looks gorgeous.

yeah thats a pretty good one. i would like to have feds in there somewhere but what you have would be cool.

Far as your third line. hehehe "Larionov hits draper on a breakaway, draper is all alone!!! but insted of going in deking the goalie he shoots it from the blue line hitting him in the chest" hahaha

I never really liked Fedorov (and I swear I felt this way before the whole contract fiasco), otherwise he would be where Franzen is I think.

Lidstrom/Howe
Chiasson/Konstantinov

Osgood

That's mine. Also of note is that my top two forward lines and all three D pairs are combinations that actually were used for extended periods.

EDIT: I only used players from during my lifetime and which I've watched play, otherwise I'd have included guys like Norm Ullman and Flash Hollett.

This thread was secretly a way to see how many posts it would take for someone to put Bob Rouse into their lineup.

Lazerbeam wins

this. I would change Osgood and Hasek though...
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

How soon we forget the criteria..."Not necessarily the best, but your favorites".

As to mine, I have to think about it, but I do know one line would be Brett Hull, Pavel Datsyuk and Boyd Devereaux...the original "Two Kids and a Goat Line".
