Sergei Fedorov of course!

Seriously, I'd go with Ozo or Gonchar.

No defenseman in the NHL has the shot accuracy of Gonchar. However, both Zubov and Leetch are extremely creative so it would be a toss up between Gonchar, Zubov and Leetch.

I think it's almost always better to shoot on a penalty shot than deke. When you deke, you are giving the goalie a chance to make a play, when you shoot, it's up to you whether the puck goes in or not.

Brian Leetch anyone?

Come on now, don't hate, this guy is great on one on one situations and clutch. I'm sure Devil and Islander fans would even vouch for that. (they get to see him often and would be unbias)

I'm rarely a homer but I'd definetly take Leetch on this one.

I'm just going to throw Brewer in to the mix after his nifty moves last all star game.

For the Kings I would give Lubomir Visnovsky a shot.

Leetch - in shootwouts it's more important for a guy to be clutch then have great moves. I've seen enough Rangers vs Bruins games to know if the Rags where down by one, that Leetch would be the one to make the play.

Sergei Gonchar would be my final pick, he's the best offensive dman in the league, IMO.

HM:

Leetch, he's the runner-up for me.

Andrei Markov, it makes seems like homerism, but he's got sweet moves, just look at the goal he scored against Pittsburgh last year..

Lidstrom

Zubov.

For me, the answer is Sergei Zubov. He's got shifty one-on-one moves, an accurate shot, and good speed to come in on the goaltender.

That's a good description for pretty much every defenseman mentioned in the thread.

Zubov is a passer first, I'm sure he will stop and look over his shoulder where Modano is, he spots him at the bench and delivers it to a T..
