Who would you say were the NHL players in ANY era who could lift you out of your seats?

In my lifetime--Orr, Lemieux & Bobby Hull.

Pavel Bure is the guy I remember the most.

I'd say Ovechkin and Gaborik are up there now.

Way befire my time but from what I have read Howie Morenz was that type of player. Max Bentley could also be included based on what I have read & a few clips I saw from the 51 Allstar game.

Laraque's a strong dude. He could probably lift two average fans out of their seats, three if he got proper leverage.

Richard, Hull, Orr, Lafleur, Perreault, Gretzky, Savard, Lemieux, Bure, Jagr, Coffey.

More recently, Crosby, Ovechkin, even Hasek back in his day didnt have the rushes but his athleticism stunned everyone

Thats not even funny, making comedy out of a deathly serious situation like that is despicable.

Pavel Bure was amazing and could lift anyone out of their seats

Yes, it's too early.

Bure is the first name that comes to mind. Stevens' hits and Hasek's unorthodox style always did it for me as well.
