Hard to say. I gained a lot of admiration for him when he changed his game to suit his linemates after Forsberg and Tanguay were gone. He did a lot more to create offense when before all he really had to do was cycle the puck and finish when needed. Not that he only did that in the AMP line days, but in the latter half of his career he did a lot more lunch pail kind of stuff.

I guess my vote would be Duchene, but I think Hejduk's "prime" is kind of a relative thing. Sure, he wasn't a pure goal scorer in his later years, but did a ton of other things that didn't necessarily show up on the scoreboard.

Ray Bourque remains my favorite player in hockey period, but the Duke will probably go down as my favorite Avs player of all time.
