All Black Hockey Team?

Alright so yesterday, I was playing NHL 12 and I thought, what would an all active black hockey team's roster look like? So I came up with this. Feel free to change the line's around. And I know the forwards are out of position but there are like no centers... And by the way, this is in no way intended to offend, this was just for fun and curiosity. Oh and I also have no clue which side the Dmen play on so oh well...

Wayne Simmonds/Evander Kane/Jarome Iginla
Chris Stewart/Anthony Stewart/Kyle Okposo
Devante Smith-Pelley/Joel Ward/Jamal Mayers
Akim Aliu/Ryan Reaves/Paul Bissonnette
Greg Mauldin/JT Brown/Robbie Earl

Dustin Byfuglien/Trevor Daley
PK Subban/Johnny Oduya
Bryce Salvador/Francis Bouillion
Theo Peckham/Mark Fraser

Ray Emery
Chris BeckfordTseu

Honestly, this team is pretty darn good. They're really tough but kind of lack depth for forwards. But oh man, they have some great D. Goaltending might be a problem though...

Please keep in mind. The keyword here is 'active players'

Paul Bissonnette. Really? His mom is 1/2 black, and I don't see it.

Yeah his mom is 1/2 black which would make him a 1/4. I don't think that qualifies.

Stop being racist, what does skin colour have to do with someone being black?

Agreed, that never stopped any of the kids at my high school.

Would Mark Owuya be better than Beckford-Tseu?

Lol you think Byfuglien and Daley are better than Subban? What because Subban is classless and Byfuglien has 50 pts or whatever? Byfuglien's the biggest floater dman in the league, he's like a 4th fwd (and I mean an actual 4th fwd, not the way people talk about Karlsson). He needs a good dman to cover his mistakes like Enstrom.

No, the top pairing would have Subban on it, he's better than Daley and Byfuglien in pretty much all parts of the game.

I think Byfuglien's better than him... Not Daley though... You need balance in your lines so he plays the second...

Manny Malhotra would be in there in the bottom 6. That's a pretty damn good team, though.

You think Byfuglien is better than Subban as a dman? He's not really a proper dman, he's not effective against other top pairings. Not saying he's terrible but you don't want him there and Wpg will need a solution.

Byfuglien should be a 2nd pairing D on your team and play lots on the PP but not over Subban in ES time.
