Either Theo Fleury or Trevor Linden. I've been a big fan of Linden for many years, enough to make sure my first hockey stick was his signature twig even though I had to saw 1-foot off the shaft due to 7" height difference). I still use that righty to this day. I was so happy he got the Pres. Hockey Ops spot after playing 16 seasons for the Canucks. Class act guy and would love to hang out with him. Theo Fleury would be awesome because he has to have some crazy stories from his career. The dude was a wild man.

Pavel Bure.

 

We could go racing sportscars and picking up hot girls in Russia.  It would be epic.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Gary Roberts, AND Wendel Clark (hard to consider him a legit Red Wing when he really was nothing more than a rental).


 

See boys & girls...

 

This is what happens after having 3 Heineken.

 

If we're talking rentals then my choice is Tiger Williams

Gary Roberts

Pavel Bure

Tie Domi

Rob Ray

Darcy Tucker (Seems like he'd be a real riot to hang out with)

Ken Daneyko

Ray Ferraro because he's ridiculously knowledgeable about the game

 

If we're including guys that had a cup of coffee with the team:

 

Brad May

Aaron Downey

Wendel Clark

probably just about any NHLer that ever made it. I think I'd be stoked.

I'll change my answer: Super Mario Lemieux. The dude played through so much s*** health-wise that it's just that much more impressive. He's been the heart of the Penguins since the day he was drafted. This guy was so elite.

What makes you think he wants to be seen in public with you?

I actually know Craig Coxe pretty well and have had the opportunity to chat with him several times about his epic fights with Probert and Kocur.  Very cool guy with a lot of good stories. 

 

I've also spoken with Derian Hatcher on a couple of occasions as well.  He's quiet and doesn't have much to say.  One of my fondest memories was busting his balls the first time I met him by grabbing him a shot and proposing a toast "to skilled european forwards".  He looked at me completely seriously and said, "I was a defenseman, not a forward".  Had no idea I was screwing with him.

Teemu Selanne, Scott Niedermeyer (how do you skate so smoothly at that level??), Don Cherry, Joe Sakic, Ron MacLean, Linden (good choice), Bobby Orr, Dave the Hammer Schultz, Larry Playfair, Linden Byers and Super Mario Lemieux it's really incredible through how much things this guy has played and not only played but still at an elite level.

I can just imagine the conversations you and Don Cherry would have haha.  Two peas in a pod.  I actually want that conversation for you (provided you record it for the rest of us) lol.

_Yeah I would gladly do that, but if it where ever to happen I would have to attend an advanced english lessons class for sure. One doesn't want to sound stupid when talking to such legends.

 

Other than that I could easily seeing us agreeing on a lot if not all things.

I always liked Hatcher, even after his botched stint in Detroit. He always seemed like the quiet leader when he was with Dallas. Guy was a force in his prime.

I forgot to mention, Bure is good friends with Gino Odjick. 

 

We'd make a hell of a team.    

 

 

BTW, I'm surprised no one has said they want to hang out with Link Gaetz.   :lol:
