I have always wished we could have kept Kozlov in '02. I realize that we got Hasek for him, and that put us over the top that year, but Kozlov was one of my favorites from that era, ever since he turnbuckled Adam Foote's face.

1992-93 Steve Chiasson would be nice to have; hard slapper, good defense, physical game, and chemistry with Lidstrom.

1994-95 Paul Coffey.

Gordie Howe...at any point.

Chris Osgood from 1995-98 to tandem with 1952 Terry Sawchuk.

1988 Probert
1989 Yzerman

These 2.

That season for Probert is actually one of the more impressive to me all time. All Star appearnace, 30 goals 398 pims and being by far the toughest guy in the game.

Yzermans just silky smooth with mitts that look like theyre actually made out of jergens for gods sake

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

Definitely a great choice. Not sure about who I would pick personally but this is absolutely a main option for me.

In terms of sheer, natural talent for the game of hockey he's definitely around the top.

Brett Hull because we need a natural scorer.

Steve Yzerman because this team has never had the heart it was had since he retired.

I would go with 97 Konstantinov. This team needs more Defence in my opinion and he plays a style I like.

best Wing ever,take a version of him early in his career,would be around for 20+ years and he was tough on top of that which this forum really has a thing for

maybe not the spirit of the question...but...

i'd bring back pav from last year.

and i'd play him with pav from this year.

...i was born in '87, and as a result i obviously don't remember stevie-y's '88/'89 season, so i'm not going to speculate about him or any of the other classics.

the most dominant wing i've ever witnessed with my own eyes was pav last season. i thought he was better last season than federov ever was in his prime (better defensively, a better team player). i thought he was better last season than stevie-y ever was in his prime...that i saw (more dynamic offensively). i thought he had a bigger impact on the team last season than nick lidstrom ever had in his prime.

my second choice would be dom in his red wing prime, just because i think that a TRULY ELITE goalie is so valuable.
