all-time regional teams

**to start with, the search option on these boards doesn't work for me, so if this thread has already been made in the past just point me in that direction**

just curious to see what some of you would have as the all-time best lineup for players from a certain area (province, state, city, etc). basically, I'd kinda like to know what the all-time team Ontario and Quebec would look like.

I was going to attempt this myself, but then I remembered that I was born in 1984 and I don't remember anything before 1990 or so. Fairly or not, I for the most part avoided anyone before the 1940's-50's because I really have no point of reference. I do have a few guys from that era who seem to have been a cut above though

to start with Ontario, I have this list of players (in no particular order):

Goal:

Esposito
Dryden
Cheevers
Durnan

Defence:

Orr
Robinson
Coffey
Horton
Stevens
Park
Potvin
Pronger



Forward:

Gretzky
Esposito
Kelly
Schmidt
Sittler
Gartner
Bobby Hull
Brett Hull
F. Mahovlich
P. Mahovlich
Lindsay
Mikita
Gainey
Hawerchuk
Lindros
Oates
Yzerman (to my understanding he was born in BC but raised around Ottawa?)
Francis
Delvecchio
Shutt
Kennedy
Morenz

hopefully there's no embarassingly obvious ommitions

Roy`s wife has to call 911 because she`s scared of him, Broduer sleeps with his in-laws, Harvey was an alcoholic, Savard gets charged with impaired driving, Lafleur quits on his team like a spoiled baby, Richard hits referees and we all know about Lemieux in the hotel room.

Lots of class on that team.


BTW, George Hainsworth is from Toronto

how was that necessary? i'm sure you could find something bad to say about every player in the NHL if you wanted to. please don't turn this into one of THOSE threads...


anyways, I was hoping someone who had seen most (or just a lot more than me) could help me try to make some lines or wittle down the list of players I have into the best team possible. Don't ask why, it's just a hobby of mine

That was the whole point. I was trying to show that if one only focused on the negative, (like two people on this board do with Gretzky), then any player(s) could look bad. Unfortunately the irony was lost on them.

Roy.. well I dont like Roy but I've not heard about such a thing. Brodeur sleeps with his in laws? Mind your own business and stop believing everything you hear, savard gets charged for impaired driving? Yet another stupid reason. Lafleur quits on his team like a spoiled baby? He didnt quit on his team you punk he quit because of his stupid coach. Richard hit referees. Wow same referees who let some Bruin player bust Rocket wide open with his stick and dont call a damn thing and on top of that they try to stop rocket from getting his revenge on the sob. As far as I'm concerned that ref deserved it! You dont know a damn thing about Lemieux. It's just a rumour so get your facts sraight pal.
