Hejduk in his prime

Would Hejduk in his prime have been a better player for Stas, Dutch or ROR?

He helps all considerably now as things stand because of his defensive ability but man, when he was younger, quicker and faster on the shot was he a weapon for both Sakic and Forsberg. I think that is what is killing this team...we don't have a Hejduk in his prime. Nothing against him mind you...but we don't have a clear cut sniper anymore....and I think at least two of our three young centers need one in order to become elite centers. We need a Svatos type bargain player put in the top six to give some scoring muscle to our centers. I hear that Meuller is close...but close after two/three years away from the game is about worthless. His legs, speed, shot and heart all have to be in question at this point. I have no idea what kinda fire burns in his belly. If he is going to be looked at as a top six forward, that fire better be stoked white hot and raging.
