Perhaps I should rephrase this:

Who would be your ideal franchise forward (including salary) if there was only one year left in the NHL? Again, include everything, including off ice things.

I picked Mike Modano, but SportsNet media guys have a story on it and were saying Markus Naslund. Who am I to argue?

Modano does make a lot of money, but I like him anyways.

Agreed. Some people put him up there with Floppa and Feds. No way.

Thats funny. I had originally had put the pretty much the same "He's worth the money" but I took it out.

Might sound bias but Mats Sundin has just been Mr Everything for our organization.

He is the best player on the ice and just a great guy off......he is usually very classy and gets along well with the media. He has really embraced the pressures of Toronto and knows and understands what is expected in this town.

He is also never one to whine and will taske responsibility for his on ice play. He has been a great individual both on and off the ice here in Toronto.

Who would your pick?
When you add in Salary it makes it difficult since I do not knowm what everyone is earning.

On the Coyotes I would have to say Daymond Langkow. He works hard every shift, does everything asked of him and his salary is reasonable.

If it is just based on talent Todd Bertuzzi -- easy choice. He can score and is a beast -- skill and size.

Lidstrom. Even considering his salary, he's worth it.

All time that I have only seen on film Bobby Orr
Today I would pick Mario, followed by Yzerman. Al MacInnis deserves some votes, he is an example of your criteria.

Re thinking it at forward I will Take Mike Peca because he can do a lot of things and you did say to consider salary.

I wouldn't say he is top-end talent, but I would nominate Mike York from the Oilers.

A very solid player no matter what position and in what situation they put him in. Very dependable like Jere Lehtinen.

I just read the question and I haven't read the whole thread so I'm not sure if you're expecting me to name a superstar or not.

Then give me Jere, he's arguably better and makes twice as less..

Using those criteria, Mike Modano or Sergei Fedorov.

Well with the way Feds went to Detroit, Mike seems a saver bet.. Sundin is also a good pick. But the winner is ofcourse: Alexei Yashin

I have no problem with Lehtinen, I would still tale Peca because he adds a physical dimention. He is one of the best bodycheckers in the league and is a tough little SOB.

Gaborik is a pretty good name. Should have an ok salary relative to most of the big guns. Would be able to generate loads of offense on a good team while being pretty good defensively.

For defense I would probably pick Wade Redden. Very good defenseman and no brutal salary.

Redden is a good pick for defence, but I would probably go with Jovanovski myself.

For forwards its tougher to find a really complete player who doesnt make a mint. Hossa or Thornton I guess. Slight edge to Hossa because he makes half as much money.

Mr. Jarome Iginla. He just seems likes he enjoys the game so much. Heart, skills, size, skating, grit, he has the tools to be the best.

Naslund, Forsberg, Koivu should be considered too.
