Obviously I'm late for this mini-flamefest, but here's a top-10 list that this guy might like:

1. Wayne Gretzky
2. Dominik Hasek
3. Niklas Lidstrom
4. Valeri Kharlamov
5. Chris Chelios
6. Teemu Sellanne
7. Zdeno Chara
8. Ken Hodge
9. Arturs Irbe
10. Erich Khunhackl

After all, what list would be complete without the greatest Latvian ever (put down the broken bottle Sandis, you're still #2) in the top 10?
