Joe is a Franchise Center he owns one of the league's best wrist shots. Has smooth skating ability and crafty playmaking skills. Sees the ice extremely well and is rarely out of position. Plays with tremendous desire and determination at all times.
The determination of Sakic and his dedication to the game, his attitude in the defensive zone (he plays against the best opposite lines) makes him a complete player, a player the team needs every game. His incredible talents for the game are now more recognized and he was once the best Canadian player in the nhl during break-away to the net.

Les As de Quebec was in the market for a defenseman but just can't overlook a five time scoring champion and three time leader of the NHL in assists. Still one of the best players in the league and when all is said and done maybe a top ten player on the NHL scoring list...Jaromir Jagr
Well, 66 helped ease my decision a touch, and though I would like to grab a defenseman at sometime and despite the fact there are some amazing offensive players on the board, I have to select one of the elite goalies all time.....Bill Durnan
