I will always like Cujo, simply from that save in the playoffs against San Jose. Didn't mind Wayne Primeau either.

Really? Cujo was great in his earlier years, but I never liked him in Calgary. It upset me that Daryl grabbed him because of Cujo's performance in the Spengler Cup, I mean, it's the Spengler Cup - the beer league tournament.

Same thing can be said about Wayne Primeau in his early years, but I never understood why he got any ice time in Calgary, he never did much IMO.

They were far from my favourite, but I definately wouldn't put them at the bottom of my overall list. Jokinen on the other hand...

There's no doubt Jokinen and the other players are under performers, but the bad penalties is what really upsets me. Jokinen never takes bad penalties, so besides his under performance, the 1st rounder we can't get back, and the cost of Lombardi, Jokinen doesn't upset me that much because his hiccups go under the radar with me, when compared to someone like Andre Roy, who took obvious and pointless penalties at the worst time.

Severe overrating here... Needs to be higher. At least most of the other guys are just roleplayers, and for the most part, they played their role. :p

We'll see how he finishes the year before I bump him up. But maybe your right, seeing as how Jokinen is well on his way to becoming the next Jonathan Cheechoo. But I don't know if those other guys played their roles well, now Nystrom on the other hand was a role player that played his role well.

Not too many votes for the 80's stars - Macinnis, Otto, Mullen, Gilmour, etc.

My top two are Fleury and Iginla.

But I have a special place for Sergei Makarov. He was our Alexei Kovalev, a magician with the puck but didn't always bring it. But he was on the downside of his career when we had him.

Even though they were very dark days I have a nostalgic affection for Ed Ward, and Cory Stillman.

I also can't believe I left Zarley Zalapski off my original list.

Agreed about Makarov. I loved watching the chemistry between him, Roberts and Nieuwendyk

My top 10:

Roberts
Iggy
Fleury
MacInnis
Kipper
Mullen
Nieuwendyk
Suter
Gelinas (just for his playoff goals alone!)
Pepper

I should add Jamie Macoun. He single handidly made all of Winnipeg hate him!
