Quantum leap!!!

Here's a topic that occurred to me while reading Jen's (@nhlhistorygirl - a must follow) Twitter feed. She posted a picture of actor Scott Bakula in hockey gear.

If you could "Quantum Leap" into one player in one game in hockey history, who would it be?

My criteria: you immediately inherit that player's mannerisms/appearance/skill set, like in the TV show. To all outward appearances, you are that person.

My first instinct would be (as an American) Mike Eurizone in the Miracle On Ice, and I'm sure that many of you Canadians would select Paul Henderson in Game 8 for similar reasons.

However, after much pondering, I am opting for Mike Vernon in Game 4 of the 1997 Stanley Cup final since I am a rec league level goalie and die-hard Wings fan. I'd also love to be a villain and have 20,000 people screaming at me, so I'll also opt for Steve Durbano when he "mooned" the crowd at MSG.

How about you?

I'd love to be in James Creighton's shoes on March 3,1893, at the Victoria Skating Rink in Montreal, when he set the groundwork for the game as it is played today. What a sight it would be to witness how our game originated!

I'll be honest, first thing that came to my mind:

Mike Milbury, December 23rd, 1979.

Gotta be Ray Bourques last game. He did win some in the Canada Cup, but his reaction to the Cup was not to be mistaken by. So many playoff games, and two losses.

In Quantum leap he couldn't leap to a time before he was born so are we following that rule too?

I can't fantasize about being the hero, but I'd like to be on the ice for some epic wins:

Larry Murphy Game 3 in '87 - best view in the arena.

Anyone on the Czech bench when Hasek stopped Shanahan, and subsequently beat the Russians.

Forsberg for the winning goal in 2006. All i have to do is drop it to Sundin then go to the net and watch Lidstrom's blast go in. Actually, I'll take Modin instead - I think being in Forsberg's body would suck.

Quite alright. You dont always land exactly where you'd planned before you took the leap.

I dont know your opinion on it but most hockey players view on it is that it's a team game, and as far as i know all three players named by you here wears gold on their ring fingers since about then.
