Watching hockey tonight I just started thinking about a few of the guys I would've loved to see in the Winged Wheel. For some that ship has sailed, others it's still possible but unlikely.

Guys like Ovechkin or (dare I say) Crosby would be obvious choices, but I'm also interested in players that are deeper in the lineup than that. Or maybe even guys you're a little embarrassed to admit.

For me it's:

Jamal Mayers - not anymore, but I wished he would've been on the Wings sometime in his prime

Pronger - you heard me. I'd rather be on the side of giving out the elbows than receiving. Plus the guy's a beast in the playoffs and an incredibly smart hockey player with a great first pass.

Kesler - a local kid and great two way forward. Seems like he'd be a natural fit for the Wings.

I'm sure there's others, but that's the first few.

I have always wanted Mo but my wish has been granted. Others would be Backes, Luke Schenn, Keith Ballard, I have always wanted Avery back, Hjalmarsson, Kariya, Briere, I know im forgetting a few.

It was Hossa since he was drafted basically. That turned out ok, sorta.

Iginla in his prime. Pronger anytime. Kasparitis back in the day.

Now:
Getzlaf
Kovalchuck

In their prime:
Kariya/Selanne in tandem
Hasek (wish granted, just wish we'd had him in his prime)
Sakic

That's off the top of my head. There are probably more under the beehive.
