Inspired by the other which former DetroitRedWings player would like to meet thread, I think having one about the other players would be cool too. Tie Domi I love tough guys and listening to someone who fought Probert so often sounds too good to not doing it. The great one no brainer here this guy is a legend, his records will never be broken and he built a hockeybuzz in LA for gods sake. Semenko talking to Gretzkys bodyguard could turn out a very interesting conversation. sent from a mobile device autocorrections errors are possible!

Theo Fleury was my favorite non Wing back in the day, so I'll go with him.

Paul Kariya (my sister adores him so I'd want his autograph for her)

Phil Esposito (my first hockey crush)

Teemu Selanne  (Next year.  Or the year after that.  Or the year after that...)


Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$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

Already met Teemu, back when he was a Shark.  He's a sweetheart!

sidney crosby. simply because he is the best defensive and offensive player currently in the game. Datsyuk has NOTHING on him.

Considering that this column is about "retired" players, may your wish come true.

I've met Selänne back when I was a kid and went to his hockey camp. Would be awesome to meet him again! Okay he's not retired yet, but after next year he is.

That's awesome. 

Yeah, he counts for this thread because he'll be retired soon and you can plan for meeting him when he's retired. :P

 

That must have been a thrill to learn from a pro.  He didn't happen to mention any anti-aging secrets, did he?

Haha, no. Unfortunately I didn't get many chances to chat with him, basically he was just there on the ice every now and then training us.

For me...

 

Gary Roberts, and Wendel Clark (ok - Clark was a Wing while having a cup of coffee).

 

Good Canadian lads who could score goals, and punch faces :thumbup:
