Who's your favourite all time and current flyers?

My all time favourite flyer would have to be Eric Lindros or Simon Gagne. Lindros is who I grew up watching and I admired his style of play. Big, fast, physically imposing player that when he wanted to could be the best player in the game. I to this day fully believe that if he remained healthy he could have been one of the best of all time. When I was actually old enough to understand the game, that's when Simon Gagne became my favourite player. A clutch performer that was equally good on both ends of the ice.
My favourite current flyer is Chris Pronger. Game changer, leader, the definition of a captain. He does nothing but win at all levels of hockey and that's no fluke. Intimidates his opponents and makes every game tough for opposing star players. It really sucks the way he has to end his career. He deserves better then that.

All time: Eric Lindros, Simon Gagne
Current: Chris Pronger

I'll try to keep it to one per

All-Time: Lindros

Current: Giroux

Current could change in a couple years if B. Schenn develops the way i think/hope he will.
