Yeah, I'm the same way, Piqued. While both Richards and Ribeiro have had better years than Modano, neither is exactly playing that much better than Modano to overcome the legacy factor.

Eriksson remains the more obvious pick, but just how much of a reputation does he have with the league? Sure, he did win a POY, but big deal; it's just one week and the list of players to do so isn't exactly a who's who of NHL players. Eriksson also wouldn't entice the casual observer to tune into the game, and while I'm not certain Modano would, he stands a better chance at doing just that.
