I have 5 thata re kinda equal. Theo, Roy, Koivu, Muller and Brisebois.

If I had to pick one, and only one it would be Theo, but I remember 93 vividly, and I remember Muller and breezer being my 2 favorite players, and I remember Roy just being my idol, plain and simple.

I voted for Jean Beliveau. To me he is the greatest player I ever saw play. No disrespect to greats like Orr, Gretzky or Lemeiux. But if i was starting a franchise today and could pick any player to build around it would be Big Jean.

I would rank him in the top 5-6 in overall talent but when you added up the intangibles like character, class, leadership and the ability to win - Jean Beliveau would be the greatest I ever saw play.

What? No Steve Begin? :p

Kidding aside, it's hard to dislike any of the "greats". Someday I hope to stumble across a few tapes of guys like Beliveau, Rocket, Harvey etc.

Having never seen those guys play, I think I'll go with a few of the more current players : Mark Recchi and Saku Koivu.

My Favourite

My favorite all time player that I enjoyed watching play was the ( Gumper ) and loved his humur after the games .Now the best palyer of all time that i saw play .Was Toe Blake . I also loved the Rocket but he came across as a Hard Ass when intervied after games . Now lets add in Doug Harvey as my best D man I've ever seen play . Another player who should be on the list is Guy Lapoint .All these guys were super to watch but again the Gumper was worth the price of the ticket any time

Yeah where's Mats Naslund... He was my favorite growing up. I voted for Beliveau because my dad and grandpas all said he was the best since I was young. So I have that engrained in my head.
