One player[current]....or one coach[all-time]

If you had a choice between any NHL player (save for Crosby, Malkin, and Ovechkin), contract, cap-hit and all, or anyone from the history of hockey coaching your team, what would you choice be?

Consider the player an asset just like you normally would (he could be traded, he could leave via free agency), but treat the coach as someone you could have on your team as long as you wanted (he's not going to retire or want to join another team)...

what about death? is the coach vulnerable to death?

hard not to go with the "Bowman for 500 years" option

Is it that player right now, or that player in their prime? If right now the Giroux probably, if prime then easily Thornton.

Only if beheaded. And if your coach beheads another coach, he absorbs his hockey knowledge.

Hmm, how about, player or having the coach for up to twenty years?

Making teh assumption that coaches don't have "primes" in the normally understood sense. If you feel that they do, the coach is in his "prime" during his tenure with you.

Player right now. You could take Weber at 27 and have him for his entire career, or you could get Karlsson at 21 and lose him to free agency when he is 26. Basically, when acquiring the player you acquire all the risks that come along with it.

Player because of guys like Giroux, Chara, Weber, Toews, Lundy, etc..

Hard to say if a coach could have an impact like one of these guys

Hard not to pick a guy like Huberdeau, Hall, Seguin, Nugent-Hopkins, Landeskog, Skinner, etc. in this poll.
