All-Devils Team!

23 posts in this topic

..just a fun game to get through the summer.

The rules are simple.. assemble an All-Devils team of 12 forwards, 6 defensemen, 2 goalies, and 1 black-ace (any position) along with 3 coaches. (2 assistants, 1 HC) You are to assume that all players are playing in their prime, and time-served\longevity means nothing. Doesn’t matter if they played 1 game with the team or 1,000. If they wore the sweater, they’re eligible!

So here's mine..

Shanahan – Gilmour – Jagr

Parise - Nieuwendyk - Kovalchuk

Richer – Elias – Mogilny

Verbeek - Andreychuk - Guerin

(Arnott; Black Ace)

Stevens -- Fetisov

Niedermayer -- Daneyko

Rafalski -- Albelin

Brodeur & Vanbiesbrouck

Pat Burns; Head Coach

Larry & Oates.. Assistants.

I would put Bruce Driver in over Albelin, and I don't like the if they played one game rule they're eligible, I'd prefer to see more career Devils on here, hence my first selection of Driver over Albelin. Hell, put Brylin in over Jagr, Rolston over Guerin,

Well if it doesn't matter how many games someone played with the Devils, Phil Housely should be there over Albelin.

..to clarify; the is no rule against assembling a team of Devil life’ers. (Brylin, Madden, White, etc) I chose to create mine on pure individual talent as a opposed to chemistry.. based on the fact that I already know what the Kid Line can do together. I've seem what Hells Angels did together. I'd long daydream of what my team would\could do together in their prime(s) however. But if you'd like to set one up with the A-Line as your #1.. and the Crash Line as your #4, etc. you're absolutely free to do so.

you're basically asking to find the best players to ever where a devils sweater for any length of time. so obviously the HOF'ers have to be there (jagr, gilmour, shanahan, andreychuk) regardless of their play/length as devils.

 

under that criteria, phil housely has to be one of the d-men on the list. hell, you could argue igor larionov should be on the list. he's a HOF'er if you consider his russian career.

I put the 2 lines I couldn't leave off on first, and filled in from there. But no, they'd really be the 4th line. Also, this team would get killed post-lockout. I don't care.

I was just struck that the opening thread didn't mention Johnny Mac or Muller, our building blocks.

 

Sanity hit later with the other posters.

How about making a pre lockout and post lockout group? Or maybe pre 2000 and post 2000 squad?

I tried to create my team with mega-stars from the mid 90's, who's individual talent was that of HOF caliber. Which is why I left out 80's players like Statsney, Muller, etc. Good suggestion though. :thumbsup:

Peter Stasny and Bernie Nichols are both top 50 scorers of all time and need to be considered over Richer, Parise, etc.

Good thread...though I think the best way to do this is to build a team of all-time Devils based on what they did as Devils, as opposed to what they did over the rest of their careers.  That's why I can't make a big deal out of Stastny, Nicholls, Gilmour, etc, as far as their Devils' careers went, compared to the guys who were in their primes.
