Do they make the team have a better chance of winning the cup? everything else is secondary, unless we are talking about some sort of really serious issues surrounding the guy, I wouldn't welcome in a Mike Vick equivalent.
This is why i can't stand the Steelers or the Ravens. Ones a rapist, ones a murderer.

Anyways, I would not want Heatley (back). Pretty sure the feeling is mutual though!

Robidas, Jagr, Roy, Rome, Fiddler to name a few...

Ovechkin. I think he is selfish and has a lazy streak in him.

There are some I wouldn't take for the cap hit, but I would happily take on some for a star like Malkin who works for his pay (he carried the pens on his back with Crosby out).

As a Ducks fan, Ovechkin, for one big obvious reason.

Oie. I think the hate for Crosby is old and that you still hear the "whining" and "favored treatment" that people talked about 5+ years ago. Give it a break. It's like the attribution bias applied to a player: he does something wrong or a call goes his way = he’s a whinier and Bettman loves him. Someone else does something wrong or a call goes their way = it’s part of the game. You have to have some really thick team glasses on to really hate Crosby unless he came out and said he likes to eat kittens for breakfast or something.

I'm a Pens fan and hate the Flyers as much as the next guy, but can still admit that having Giroux on the team would be killer. He would be an amazing playmaker and I could see a Malkin - Giroux - Neal line being the most productive line currently out there.

As far as the original question, not taking caps into consideration, I honestly just wouldn't want anyone that would affect the team chemistry. Ovi might do that for the Pens, but I'm not sure. He could also rock it with Malkin. I personally wouldn't want Radulov on the team because of his attitude, but I think he's done with the NHL. I probably wouldn't want Tim Thomas either for similar reasons. Not that he isn't a great goaltender, but the Pens goalie situation is very finickiy as it is - the last thing we need is another question mark in front of the net.
