Sorry Naslund was a great player but he is not on that list ahead of a certain Russian Rocket.

Vancouver Canucks:

Trevor Linden
Stan Smyl
Pavel Bure

In the 4th spot I can make a case for anyone of these players

Thomas Gradin, Harold Snepsts, Richard Brodeur, Kirk McLean, Markus Naslund, Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, Roberto Luongo.

Colorado Avalanche:

Sakic, Roy, Forsberg, Foote.

Avs/Nordiques:

Sakic, Peter Stastny and Goulet are locks, it's between Foppa and Roy for 4th spot.

Canadiens:

M. Richard (he's more than just a hockey player), Beliveau, Morenz and Lafleur probably as the 4th person. Cases can be made for Harvey, Dryden, H. Richard etc.

I do kinda agree, but Kopitar/Brown/Quick brought the Kings a Cup, which NONE of the others, including the Great One, did not. We are not talking straight the best player, it is the four most important to the organization/fan favourites, I take a Cup over years and years of Gretzky/Robitaille/etc, but maybe that's just me.

Shane Doan played 1 year in WPG. I was just considering WPG Jets, not PHO Coyotes or ATL Thrashers. I wanted to include one new Jet. If you want to go franchises it would be different, but I just wanted to include WPG Jets, regardless of the "franchise" they were attached to. Steen would be a good 4th option, cause no new Jet is that established.

Habs

Morenz
Rocket
Beliveau
Lafluer

As for Roy, his Hab related resume is weaker than Dryden or plante. Also, forgiven or not, he quit on the Habs. He might make it on a Habs goalie Rushmore though:

Vezina
Hainsworth
Durnan
Plante
Dryden
Roy

Tough to pick one amongst the 1st three.

Howe

Lidstrom

and I'd probably go with Ted Lindsay for what he did for NHl players past, present, and future.

I'm gonna have to give a shout-out for the Pocket Rocket for the Habs.
How can you leave off a place for the guy that won the most Stanley Cups as a player at 11 in NHL history.

Habs might just need to have more than 4 spots!

Makes me think of the Yankees... Who would they have? Ruth, Gehrig, Berra, Mantle? Or Jeter instead of Berra? Hard to narrow it to 4 for some franchises with long and great success.

Scott Stevens & Martin Brodeur are definitely on

Last 2 are between Scott Niedermayer, Ken Daneyko, Patrik Elias, and Lou Lamorello himself

... there ya go. Thoughtful. I put Conn Smythe up there with Leafs. Top GM/Owner or Coach should take one spot.

... pity the Habs. I mean youve got Pollock, Blake & Bowman, Morenz, Richard, Beliveau, Plante, on & on & on. Thankfully we have the Hall of Records carved into the limestone behind the faces, so theoretically, you could fill the Chamber, though some might call that cheating.

Might be better off jumping to the WHA days and using Bobby Hull.

For the Oilers, two are obvious. Gretzky & Messier. Then you have the 2nd tier guys:

Kurri
Anderson
Fuhr
Coffey
Lowe
Smyth

I'd say for the Oilers it would be:

Gretzky
Messier
Lowe
Smyth

i was a big steamer fan as a kid, but i think it has to be linden, bure, sedin, sedin at this point.

yes, both sedins are definitely above naslund. when you consider awards, playoff rounds, etc. it's not even in question. they'll both beat his career franchise scoring record this season too.

which to me leaves bure and smyl. and as i said, i totally get what smyl means to the city. but even with the messy divorce and the short tenure, the magnitude of what bure meant to the city could be more than any other canuck to date, including linden. pavelmania literally changed how we as vancouverites thought of ourselves; even though vancouver was already in many respects a cosmopolitan and world class city by '92, we still thought of ourselves as a second class city. when we finally had a true superstar, that changed. i think a canuck would have to actually win the cup to top what bure did between '92 and '94.

My nomination for the Oilers would be:

Wayne Gretzky
Mark Messier
Glen Sather
Wild Bill Hunter

Kevin Lowe would have a case as the all time games played leader, coach, GM, and president had he not run the team into the ground from the press box from 2007 onwards. Maybe he replaces Messier if the team ever wins a Cup under his guidance in the future.
