Sharks "League of Nations" roster

If you were to pick the best players who ever played for the Sharks from the major hockey countries who would you choose?"

Canada, USA, Russia, Sweden, Finland, Czech, Slovakia, ROW?

More or less agree with them. Man, we sure don't develop many Europeans...

I would replace Handzus with Viedensky, don't care that he hasn't played for us yet (or probably ever will).

ROW is definitely the hardest, I would probably lean towards Sturm too, but hard to deny guys like Irbe or Ozo and Ehrhoff (especially based on how he's played post-Sharks). I'm also a little tempted to give the Russia nod to Larionov, but I suppose can't really keep Nabby off the list :laugh:

Seriously though, we need to scout Europe better.

Apparently, we only scout Germany.

I'd give the Rest of World category to Irbe. I love Sturm, but Irbe is kind of a legend in my mind.

Agreed. Sturm might have had the better NHL career, but Irbe pretty much encapsulates everything about the early Shark days.

Sturm was great, one of my favourite sharks and ozolins put up great numbers, but Irbe was Irbe....

I loved him when he was on Carolina too (one of my favourite Cinderella runs)....just loads of personality, fantastic style and I think it is safe to say we will never see a goalie of his size ever again in the NHL
