Best Players to never wear a letter

Who are they? Some friends and I were wondering and have no idea who they are.

I'd say Lundqvist then but he wore an A in preseason two years ago.

None of these will likely be "The Best", but just a few names.

Petr Nedved
Marian Hossa

That's actually all I can think of...

Edit: Cancel that, Hossa wore an A with the Hawks at some point.

Did Slava Fetisov ever wear a letter in New Jersey?

If not, he's the best skater ever to not wear a letter... in the NHL.

That is a pretty good one, but he was a captain in Russia for years. Using him or goalies is kind of a cheap answer.

Guys that got careers cut short are also probably in this discussion if you want to do it that way. Konstantinov would enter the picture in that scenario.

I've been hearing from this point on, instead of captains, they'll name team Jankowskis. It will be a huge honor wearing the J for your team.

The best player I have found so far is Jimmy Carson.

Most good players wear a letter at one point or another. The best you could find is probably a 25 years old somewhere.

For most of his career, an A in Vancouver for a bunch of seasons plus both an A and C in Florida. 6 of 12 seasons.

Hakan Loob, although he was a captain in Sweden for years if I remember right and made the choice to cut his NHL career short.
