Building the Ultimate Hockey Beast

I want to do a series of polls in which the great people of HF builds the ultimate hockey beast, frankenstein style. We are going to vote on who has the best (insert body part) in the history of the game, working from head to toe.


Suggested Body Parts:

Head (brain, Hockey IQ, best thinker of the game, ect..)
Eyes (on ice vision)
Mouth (best trash talker)
Chin (best at taking a punch)
Shoulders (best body checking using the shoulders)
Wrists/Hands (stickhandling/puckhandling)
Hands (best fighter/best or heaviest puncher)
Heart (self explanitory)
Abs (best balance/hardest to knock off the puck)
Butt (best checker using the backside ie. Rob Blake)
Hips (best hip-checker)
Thighs (most powerful skater)
Shins (best shot-blocker)
Ankles (Most agile skater)
Feet (fastest skater)


Please suggest some more body parts to use. Also, we need some nominations to use for the first poll, "head". Start nominating!

I nominate Wayne Gretzky for "head".

Once I get enough nominations, I will start the first poll.

I give it a shot, perhaps not relevant (or more important, fun) but shoot it down then. Perhaps one could divide the "Head" into right/left brain, the brain should hold importance.

Relevant in hockey?

The Right Brain, sample of
traits:

Recognizing faces (goes into "Eyes")
Expressing emotions (goes into "Hart")

Intuition
Creativity


This is where Hockey IQ goes


The Left Brain, sample of traits
Logic
Critical thinking
Numbers
Reasoning


Learning systems, adaptive.
Reading the overall game situation (in contrast to vision, hockey IQ this is on the step above in abstraction. Good for captains and coaches).

People, I need nominations for names for the poll or "head/brain". Not a single person has done that. Gretzky will probably win, but he shouldn't get to win by default.

If you have any ideas for addition parts or expanding on current ones, feel free to add those a well.

Possible candidates for head/brain:

Crosby
Lidstrom
Bourque
Messier
Lemaire
Beliveau

Any of these guys fit? Help me out. I'd like to have 10 solid candidates to make the first poll.

Every time this thread comes up, the inevitable conclusion is that the perfect hockey player is Eric Lindros with a titanium skull.

hand/eye coordination would be a good poll, but it is not so easy to pick a winner.

you could also have a poll for durability. call it "bones," i guess.

"lungs" would be good for stamina, but that would be hard to determine.


also change "hands" (fighting) to "fists."
