Jacques Plante for the Oilers. I once told my friends he once played for the Oilers, and they thought I was lying.

Bondra, Hasek (could have been something great), and Barrasso for the Sens.

I would add Marty Rucinsky, Theo Fleury, Jari Kurri, and Radim Vrbata. All brief stints with the team, though perhaps not as obscure as some other examples.

Avs:

Fleury
Rolston
Selanne
Kariya
Kasparaitis
Barnaby
Gratton
Kurri
Salo

Missing some obvious ones, probably. Leaving off guys like Turgeon or Bourque who were both around more than a year and had an identity with the team, even if it paled compared to where else they'd been.

Paul Coffey. I forget he was a Flyer all the time.

Not right now, obviously.

Glen Wesley

The Leafs really had a collection of current/former star players (from other teams) on those 2002-2004 teams. Shame they never really put it all together.

I still find it hard to believe that Mats Sundin retired a Canuck.

Habs after 2000s: They played under 82 games with the team, and coincidentally all are right-handed players who have worn #20 in Montreal:

Robert Lang
Bryan Smolinski
Mike Johnson
James Wisniewski
Colby Armstrong
Thomas Vanek (Soon to be)

Cant believe some Ottawa fans are forgetting Peter Bondra.

I guess that is the point of the thread.

Brooks laich also played 1 game for us the same year.

A number of Canucks who won't be remembered for their time in Vancouver:

Sean Burke
Arturs Irbe
Joey Kocur
Sammy Pahlsson
Mike Peca
Derek Roy
Mathieu Schneider
Bryan Smolinski
Marco Sturm
Mats Sundin
Esa Tikkanen
Rick Vaive
Scott Walker
Ossi Vaananen

edit: doesn't technically count, but Owen Nolan played some preseason games a couple years back on a PTO with the Canucks and it always looked weird.
