Vokoun is the only player I chose because I feel that he, more than anything else, pushed this team from its expansion phase to the competitive phase.


Leipold founded the team. As bad as the sale was, he still gets historical credit in my book.

IMO Weber, Suter and even *gulp* Legwand will all eventually be "mountain worthy" but not at this point of their careers...
I came really close to adding Leipold to the poll over Weber/Crisp for that reason, but decided not to at the last minute because of the fact that Weber/Crisp are still here, while Leipold has moved on and owns another franchise...

Ultimately, I think David Freeman's face would be better suited if I was going to head in that direction for the fact that he put together and is still the majority shareholder of the group that bought the team from Leipold and kept them in Nashville...
