Yo folks its been awhile, I thought I'd come back and do a little series on my fantasy teams of all time in the NHL, NBA, NFL, CFL and soccer first up its the NHL and here is my fantasy first line, defence paring and goalie.
1. Goalie:Grant Fuhr (The Vezina winner was the rock in the Edmonton Oiler net for all 5 cup wins, became the phenom that took the starting job from Andy Moog and helped diversity in Hockey by being one of the first black superstars in the NHL as well as being the first black hockey hall of fame inductee in 2006).
2. Defensemen: Scott Stevens and Paul Coffey (One intimidated with his ability to drill you so hard your great grandkids in 2045 will feel the pain and one that had goalies dumbfounded with his end to end rushes. Both men are hall of famers and guys that had massive impacts on the clubs that they played for as Stevens lead the Devils to Stanley Cups in 1994-95, 1999-00 and 2002-2003 along with Martin Brouder and company and Coffey won cups in Edmonton and Pittsburgh.)
3. Right Winger: Brett Hull (The man scored 86 goals playing for the 1990-91 St Louis Blues, imagine if he was in Edmonton or LA? He would have scored 125, the guy that the Calgary Flames drafted 117th overall in 1984 went on to make magic with his shot scoring 741 times in the regular season).
4. Left Winger: Brendan Shanahan (A fighter, a scorer, a comedian and a winner, Shanny was the ultimate mix of power and scoring ability ending his career 656 goals to go with his 2489 PIMS in a career that had stops in New Jersey, St.Louis, Hartford, Detroit and the Rangers).
5. Centre: Wayne Gretzky (Well this was as obvious as Rosie O'Donnell breaking a scale every day, 894 goals and 2857 points in the NHL alone, bring in his WHA, junior and pee wee hockey stats and your brain would melt like a grilled cheese sandwhich on the stove. The Great one had vision on the ice that will be unequaled and he made those around him ten times better on his line, probably the greatest proof of that is in LA, Bernie Nicholls had a 50 goal season leading up to the 1988-89 season, Wayne is traded from the Oil to the Kings before the 88-89 season and Bernie scores 70 GOALS, that right there is the power of playing with Wayne.)
