1 Player You Can't Live Without

If this one player had never existed, NHL hockey would not have been the same for you. You can only choose one

for me: Pavel Bure

Good choice. For me a no-brainer. Wayne Gretzky.

Gretz. No one else is even close (please note I am not old enough to have seen Orr play)

I can't say a player, but no habs = not a hockey fan.

It should be Gretz, but Hexy was the first player I was facinated by when I started to get into hockey.

Not exactly by choice but Jeremy Roenick is what brought the NHL to my attention.

Martin Brodeur. I discovered the NHL with him and he's always been my favourite player. I'm still pretty young but it'd be difficult for me to imagine the NHL -and the Devils- without him.

No really, Patty Roy, although I'm a Dallas (Minnesota) fan, every time Roy came to town when I was a kid, my father got tickets. He's the reason I'm a net minder.

But Brian Leetch made me the fan I am today.
