One weakness: Alfredsson, Varada, Schaeffer, Neil, Shastlivy
Ok, a few things...
1) Bonk lacks consistent effort and a true power game. He's a well-rounded player, but I wouldn't say complete.
2) White is too small and not strong enough to be complete. He is a two-way player, but not complete like Hossa, or Fisher or Smoke for that matter.
3) Alfredsson is a more complete player than everybody save Hossa and Fish in my opinion. He lacks the straight-away speed of those guys, but does it all, and works his butt off.
Interesting concept. THe flaw though, is in determining what you mean by complete. Do you mean, a two-way forward? Or do you mean, no weaknesses, because even Hossa has a weakness, heck, so does Forsberg.
