I'll also pick Murph, but I'd probably get all drooly and girlygirl and make a fool out of myself.

When I met him, no joke he got in line behind me to get a hot dog. It was great

I've me a ton of Red Wings on my autograph running days, but the two I haven't yet and I really want to are, Steve Yzerman and Sergei Federov. I would be a gushing fan boy if I could do that!
 
Gordie Howe is an interesting guy, he has a lot of stories and he enjoys the fans immensely. Got a picture with him at the signing and since it was so expensive there wasn't really anybody there so I sat and chatted with him for almost an hour. It was awesome!
 


wow awesome wish I had the same opportunity one day. I think listening to the stories from the man himself about changes, goalies without masks earning nothing compared to today and stories about Richard must be incredible. is he more of a laid back guy or does Gordie. know how special he is?

I would call Stevie Y and the perfect human a lot but boring wouldn't be used. They both seem to be very humble guys, who value family, friends, fans and privacy extremely high. Talking to them would be very special for me I mean for most fans these two are having a godlike reputation.

I have a couple funny stories, one re: Lidstrom, the other, Bowman. But I think I've already told the tales...(?)

 

Its gotta be Yzerman. This is one case, I think, where being a slightly younger fan of the game (26 going on 27, i.e. someone who wasn't in or out of college in the mid-90s) is/was a really big deal. The role-model/hero/guy-you-look-up-to thing. Yzerman was my guy. I wasn't obsessed with him, I didn't have posters of him all over my bedroom walls...there was just a very strong feeling of respect and admiration and "Hey, this guy makes sense to me. I like what he does and the way he does it (e.g. leading by example)."

 

Would be honored, thrilled to meet The Captain.

Yzerman was drafted when I was 11 years old. He has been my idol ever since. Even wanted to give my firstborn "Yzerman" for his middle name, but my wife nixed that :). I always hope that I will bump into him someday down here in central Florida at a gas station or something. If I did I would probably stand there like an idiot in awe. Stranger things have happened. When I was around 10 years old we were down in Florida on vacation. We pulled into the gas station and my Dad recognizes the older gentlemen pumping his gas next to us. Comes back to the car beaming, having just chatted up "Rocket" Richard.

Larionov.  I neither play chess nor drink wine, but I'd like to do both with the professor.

This is a good one.  I should've thought of him as well.

 

Just to hear him tell the story of saying "good game" to Gretzky would be worth the price of admission.

I'd have to say Chelios. I grew up idolizing him as a kid and he unfortunately was done playing and never got to see him play in person.

Stevie Y.  I've already met my other favorite, Mickey Redmond.  He's the best!  :wub:

Agreed. I've met Mick a couple of times, one at a card signing in Livonia, and up in the broadcast booth at Boston Garden back in '94. Great guy. A buddy of mine is friends with Paul Woods, and he and a few of my other close friends went to the Old Shillelagh after a Wings game in the early 90s with Mick and Paul and closed the place, drinking and singing Irish songs. I sure wish I had been there! I've been fortunate to meet many former Wings, mainly at autograph signings, but the last couple of seasons at Olympia, I would go up to the broadcast area in between periods, and wait to get Sid and Bruce to come out and get their autographs. Always real nice. Meeting Steve would be great, but really any player would be a pleasure. I'd love to meet Reed Larson, just to talk about the last years of Olympia, the 77-78 team that got the city back into hockey, or his experience playing in the 1980 All-Star game at the Joe.

Steve Yzerman, without a doubt.  Followed by Brendan Shanahan, Nick Lidstrom, and Gordie Howe....and Gordie just for the stories.
