Situations: Which Oilers Would you take?

It's pretty simple. Which Oiler would you count on in these different situations or give the puck to with the game on the line:

A big key hit:
Faceoff in the offensive zone with less than a min left, down a goal:
Block that shot in the dying seconds:
Make that key save:
Scoring the tying or winning goal:
Killing a penatly late in the game:
Tied shootout, a goal wins it:
Pumping up the team before a game:
Leading a Power Play rush up the ice (Forward or Defensemen):
Carrying the puck from his own end all the way to the opposing teams net:
Quarterbacking and setting up the Power Play:

Normally I would agree but watching hemsky score winning goal several times down the stretch in o6 (including playoff clinching goal) series clicnhing goal against detroit and several winning goals in the 2 years afterwards he has just done more the cogs (although the 3 overtimes was amazing)

Quarterbacking and setting up the Power Play:

1) Penner. (if he plays physical in his TOI we are a great team)
2) Horcoff. ( you don't tie the game with the F/O win...you tie it with the 2nd effort after the faceoff scramble).
3) Garon. (because it costs less than Roloson)
4) WoW. (Who is in the penalty box at that time of the game now that we traded Stoll?)
5) I'll take Hemsky now. (Gagner's move is a bit too predictable and not so unstoppable anymore)
6) There is no such thing as 'pumping up a team before a game'. Before a game...you stretch your muscles and prepare YOURSELF and if you need someone to 'pump you up' your called a 'flat tire'.
7)Hemsky
8)'''''''''''''
9)Hopefully Vishnovsky. (otherwise were screwed)

A big key hit: Penner (would be Moreau, but oh, those minors...)
Faceoff in the offensive zone with less than a min left, down a goal: MacT, but alas those stupid league rules. Okay, Horcoff.
Block that shot in the dying seconds: Lowe. Okay, Staios.
Make that key save: Roloson, at the moment, but only because he's been in more situations where key saves are required. Garon to get us into those situations, for sure, but can't back him here until I've seen him under pressure a few times.
Scoring the tying or winning goal: Horcoff
Killing a penalty late in the game: Pisani, Horcoff, Staios, Grebs
Tied shootout, a goal wins it: Gagner (I know he faded last year, but here's predicting he comes back with some new stuff)
Pumping up the team before a game: Horcoff
Leading a Power Play rush up the ice (Forward or Defensemen): Visnovsky (would say Hemmer b/c he gets into the O-zone so nicely, but he also tends to get in too far ahead of everyone else sometimes)
Carrying the puck from his own end all the way to the opposing teams net: Hemsky
Quarterbacking and setting up the Power Play: Hemsky

A big key hit: Moreau
Faceoff in the offensive zone with less than a min left, down a goal: Horcoff I suppose unless Gagner gets much better in the dot.
Block that shot in the dying seconds: Staios has this spot locked up, Horcoff + Moreau are close seconds.
Make that key save: Garon
Scoring the tying or winning goal: Hemsky
Killing a penatly late in the game: Horcs at forward and Souray at defense
Tied shootout, a goal wins it: The Kid or Hemsky
Pumping up the team before a game: Don't know the inner workings well enough but I think Souray could be that guy.
Leading a Power Play rush up the ice (Forward or Defensemen): Forward Hemsky and Visnovsky for D
Carrying the puck from his own end all the way to the opposing teams net: See above, add Gagns as an honourable mention
Quarterbacking and setting up the Power Play: See previous 2 answers.

Edit to add question:
Timely Fight to steal momentum: Gagner...

Pretty much the same here.
And Pies is my favorite in the shootout, very underrated, just simple and effective.

Yes it was close for me. I picked Hemsky but Pisani was a close second.
