I know this is similar to the other thread, but figured this would start a different discussion. Criteria is one center, two wingers (regardless of position), two defenders, one goaltender.

I believe CBS Sports is doing this for all the teams around the league, which would make for some interesting reads.

As much as it pains me to say it, Parise probably should have been one of the wingers

It may be important to note that they've set an additional criterion of a minimum of 200 games played with the franchise.  Surprisingly, this does not disqualify Kovalchuk but it does leave out such names as Sean Burke, Sheldon Souray, Chico, Jeff Friesen, and Steve Thomas.

 

If you're going with the best cohesive line, I think you have to pick Elias, Sykora, and Arnott.  If you're cherry-picking the best players available regardless of chemistry or even time period, I would choose Elias, Parise, and Gomez.  (I initially said MacLean instead of Gomez, but then I realized that left me without a center, even though HockeyDB says Parise's a center.  Was he drafted as a center?)

 

IMO, the back three are fairly obvious:  Stevens, Niedermayer, and Brodeur.

Alot of people are drafted as centers. Quite a few move to wing because it suits them better in the NHL
