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.

Money on the board:  Current total: $6

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James
