Hey guys im kinda new to this forum but today something pop'd up in my head and I thought I'd ask you guys what your opinion was on this topic.

If you were able to bring back any player who played for us who would you pick?

You can choose anyone who played atleast one year for us and at any point in his career but he had to play for the wings during that year.

I hope this isnt a over used topic, I read alot of forums on here and know you guys know your stuff so I thought I'd get your opinions.

My pick; 93-94 Sergei Fedorov. His speed and skills I think would be a good match for this team.

Have fun.

I'd love to see Konstantinov back if I had to pick one player.

But Fischer would be a close 2nd. I really liked that guy.

Tuff to choose iust one, so I'll go with a guy that I work with, Dennis Sobchuk, 79-80. I'd luv to see him on Pav's wing. Go, Dennis, Go!

...just kidding. :hehe:

Even though it's already been a deep seven-game season and people are turning on him, I guarantee that Z will still have a solid season.


1988-89 Steve Yzerman.


Same.

My second pick was 51-52 terry sawchuk. 88-89 Stevie was a close choice too. I seriously sat and thought about this question for about an hour today. I just thought that fedorov would be a better mesh with this team plus we could put him on D for a PP with that nasty slap shot he had or just have him play D all year if needed.

Any of the Production Line, although I think Howe, it meets that gritty "kick your ass" mindset I personally love when the WIngs show it. See also Bert slamming Nash's head into the glass at JLA last Fri night.

I can only dream about what might have been had Fischer or Konstantinov been able to play out their careers in Detroit.

Also some obvious picks: Gordie Howe, Syd Abel, Red Kelly, Ted Lindsay...

But if we're sticking to active players, I'd go with Sammy. Or Hossa.

95-96 Владимир Константинов (Vladimir Konstantinov)
The Vladinator He earned the NHL Plus/Minus Award in 1995-96, with a plus/minus difference of plus-60. The +60 has been the highest rating a player has finished with in the past 20 seasons, since Wayne Gretzky finished with a +70 in the 1986-87 NHL season

Getting away from long tenured players and those who spent their career with the Wings, I would go with Brett Hull... I always loved that guy and loved him even more on the Wings.

I loved the "Two Kids and a Goat" line, that's where I fell in love with Datsyuk <3.

This is a tough question...I can think of so many I'd like to have back. Dom in '02, Hull with Pasha and Boyd Devereaux in '02, Shanny, Steve Yzerman anytime, Vladdie, The Russian Five...how do you pick one?

I'd probably pick the same Stevie season as Eva did, but since that's been mentioned I'll go with Bob Probert of 1987-88 season.

(See his stats below in my sig)

Oh yea! That was a great season if only he would of stayed on track after that season he would of been a bigger league than in just the fight department. Not to many enforcers have played in a All Star game and that pretty much wraps that up. Probie has always been one of my favorites. RIP

Some great answers here so far. Yzerman any time in the early 90s, Konstantinov, Hasek, Sawchuck. Any of these guys were great.

I'll have to go with the guy who was my favorite player growing up, Darren McCarty circa 1997. He was far from the best player in the organization, but he was a heart and soul type of guy, scored clutch goals, and took care of his teammates. I miss DMac!

Not to mention he scored one of the prettiest goals of all time, which will always go down as one of the best memories I've ever had watching hockey.
