If You Could Have Any Player In The Nhl...

I know we've discussed this before, but now it seems a little more pertinent. The only rules here are that:

(1) You only get one person.

(2) Pretend everyone is a UFA and can be signed.

(3) Pretend everyone goes for the same price.

You should keep in mind that this player should also fit with the Devils' system, as this is meant to help the Devils (ie, Bure may be a great player, but is he really Devils material?)

I'm interested to see what people think. My thoughts:

(1) Mike Modano - my top choice. Fantastic player - exactly what we'd need. Too bad it's a pipe-dream.

(2) Alex Kovalev - the sniper we've long sought. May not be a total pipe-dream, but with the way he's doing now, it sure is close.

(3) Todd Bertuzzi - huge and dangerous with the puck. Need I say more?

(4) Sergei Fedorov - My only concern here would be his Niedermayer-esque "not showing up for every game" syndrome. Fantastic player, probably one of the top 3 raw talents in the league.

(5) Joe Sakic - No explanation needed. Another pipe-dream, however.

What does everyone else think?

These lists so far really make something apparent to me - but I'm not sure what the reason is . . .

Do you guys (except Risky):

1) hate Modano because he's a Star (or some other reason)

2) or really don't think he's one of the greatest players in the NHL?

This really does amaze me! :unsure:

Sakic. Not as talented as Mario but he's far more durable with several great years left, responsible in his own end, clutch in the playoffs (as we well know :( ) and also class all the way. There is no second choice IMO.

Although I wouldn't mind Mogilny back...if only because that would reduce the # of whiny posts around here by a third :P
