Classic Devil's Yearly All-Time Team Challenge

It's that time of year again.

You're to create an all time team for the New Jersey Devils. I've been doing this for.... six or seven years, and the rules are somewhat complicated, so read carefully:

(1) You can only select one player from any given season.

(2) You cannot have the same player twice. (So, no defense of 6 Scott Stevens.)

(3) No two players can wear the same number. (So, you can't have Bruce Driver and Scott Gomez on the same team.)

(4) If a player wore multiple numbers in his Devils career, you take the number he wore the majority of the time. (So, no putting Petr Sykora in 15 so you can have him and Kovalchuk.)

(5) You are to consider both regular season and playoff performances in selecting a player from a given year.

(6) The roster size is 23. There are now more than 23 seasons in Devils history (the first time I did this, you had to have one player from each season), and you want to create a team that has approximately the right number of total games played. (So, you could put 2011-2012 Zajac on the team, but ensure that one of the scratches could play the games he'd miss.)

I'll post my team shortly. It's getting harder and harder to choose an "obvious" right choice, especially with this season's playoffs in the mix now.

Now, I'm still fiddling with this, trying to see if I can get Kovalchuk in without causing the whole thing to collapse, but this is my first shot at the All-Time team. It's meant as an example for what the team looks like:


#26 Patrik ELIAS (2005-2006) - #25 Jason ARNOTT (1999-2000) - #89 Alexander MOGILNY (2000-2001)
#9 Zach PARISE (2008-2009) - #93 Doug GILMOUR (1996-1997) - #22 Claude LEMIEUX (1992-1993)
#44 Stephane RICHER (1994-1995) - #17 Patrik SUNDSTROM (1990-1991) - #15 John MacLEAN (A) (1988-1989)
#11 Brendan SHANAHAN (1991-1992) - #16 Bobby HOLIK (1998-1999) - #21 Randy McKAY (1997-1998)
#10 Aaron BROTEN (1986-1987) - #19 Travis ZAJAC (2009-2010)

#4 Scott STEVENS (C) (1993-1994) - #28 Brian RAFALSKI (2006-2007)
#3 Ken DANEYKO (1991-1992) - #27 Scott NIEDERMAYER (A) (2003-2004)
#23 Bruce DRIVER (1987-1988) - #24 Bryce SALVADOR (2011-2012)
#29 Shawn CHAMBERS (1995-1996)

#30 Martin BRODEUR (2002-2003)
#1 Johan HEDBERG (2010-2011)

Out of curiosity, why choose which number they had for the majority of time rather than what number they had the season you chose them for?

Don't think I'll be doing this though, I've never really followed the team that closely until about 2-3 years ago for various reasons.

Basically, I want players in the jersey they'll be remembered as wearing.

Makes sense. I was just wondering if there was an issue that came up in previous years.

It's been asked in the past. Honestly, there's on exception to the "they have to wear the number they wore the majority of the time" and that's Mike Rupp. I'd rule that Rupp has to wear the number he wore in the 2003 SCF, regardless of the remainder of his tenure.

I'm bumping this to see if anyone else wants to take a shot at it. I've produced a revised one that I'll post in a bit.
