Bob Beers and Darcy Martini both suited up for the Oilers in the 90's.

My favorite hockey sounding name is Johnny Boychuk....For no reason other then he sounds like he was born to play hockey!

This Rabbit did make the big leagues:

Quote:
The 1923 WCHL all-star, 1927 NHL retroSelke winning, fast and feisty left winger Rabbit McVeigh. The tough little 5'6 superpest wasn't a scorer per se but was a scoring line role player, having played nine full NHL seasons mostly on one of the top lines after four years in the Western league, having four times scored double digits in NHL goals, his last six years double digits in assists.



from TIME magazine, March 10th, 1941:
Quote:
A star forward, the scrappy little fellow made a name for himself as a rough-&-tumble player, who never minded how big they came.

One of the smaller players in the league, he was known for his agility and speed which saw him play every position on the front line

Ottawa Citizen, Oct.16 1928, after being traded from the Blackhawks to NY:
Quote:
"McVeigh is a colorful player and will be well liked by the fans"


Here he ties up the game with 5 seconds remaining in a come from 0-4 behind 5-4 victory for the Chicago Blackhawks over the Montreal Maroons in 1927:

Think this team could win a cup?

We should make an all -ov team and vote on which would be better.

The -ov team would easily be better if you're allowed to include guys who peaked outside of the NHL. You could use the entire Green Unit and the Red Army Line:

Coach: Tarasov

Krutov-Larionov-Makarov
Kharlamov-Petrov-Mikhailov
Firsov-Fedorov-Vikulov
Skov-Starshinov-Mayorov

Spare: Bobrov

Fetisov-Kasatonov
Konstantinov-Zubov
Davydov-Tsygankov

Spares: Ivanov, Sologubov, Markov

Nabokov
Puchkov


Basically, a list of 75% of the all-time great Russians/Soviets plus Glen Skov. Maybe it's possible to get better wings on the 4th line (only reason Bobrov isn't there is because he's not the type to play on a 4th line), but this is a damn good team.

Edit: I forgot goalies. Sadly, the best Soviet goalies weren't ovs, so goaltending is the team's weakness. Still not bad, though.

Excellent first line, no offensive depth, decent bottom 6, average defence and excellent goaltending. Playoff team but no ring! Still, amazing what you can do with a bunch of chuks.

Good work, but you still need to include Glen Skov on the 3rd or 4th line: http://redwingslegends.blogspot.com/...glen-skov.html

He can play C or LW

Unless the goal is to only have Russian NHL -ovs

Good catch. It's not hard to tell I only looked at Russians.

There was a stretch in the 1990s where Todd Gill, Doug Gilmour, and Bob McGill were all playing for the Leafs at the same time, and giving Bob Cole fits on HNIC.

__________

Back to the list, disappointed not to see my all-time favourite Merlin Malinowski not mentioned and my #2 favourite Bart Crashley to only get an honourable mention. But still not a bad effort.

Only problem is they're direct descendants of Takim Summersov and finish playing hockey while it's still Spring!

Good names, but this thread has listed a lot of good ones too. The only one I thought shouldn't have been on that list was Ulf Samuelsson. Bart Crashley over him, any day. Don't forget Brent Meeke!
