The Best Aging Superstar?

Forget the past for a moment. Which aging superstar would you want on your team right now for a one year contract?

If Pronger doesn't win this poll I'll slice off my skin with a carrot scraper and bathe in a giant tank of jellyfish venom.

No disrespect to Lidstrom, who is one of the greatest defensemen of all-time, but it seems as though this past off-season was not kind to him. He's a step slower and a touch less reliable. Pronger's only 35 and still plays at a very high level, both offensively and defensively.

Alfredsson is great, still an elite player... but I'd definitely take a 6'6" 35-year-old franchise defenseman over a 38-year-old two-way PPG winger.

(BTW, does Brodeur count? If so I may reconsider my vote.)

I'll take even a "step behind" Lidstrom over any of these.

Voted Alfredsson before I saw the "one year contract". Lidstrom in that case.

Oilers: Chris Pronger. Man that guy was good. Made MAB look good (makes all his partners hes had over the years look good for that matter.) Our one year with him we make it to the SCF. I hate to admit it but hes awesome.

Why is Brodeur not on this list? He should run away with this one...

After I saw Lidstrom absolutely eliminate Gaborik from the game it's impossible to vote against him...

Lids for one year.

If the hypothetical contract were any longer I would go with Pronger.

Pronger, but it should be noted that he is 3-4 years younger than everyone on the list but Kariya.

Yeah Pronger looks the best right now but Selanne is 4 years older than him.

I pick Selanne.

Based on last year I voted Markov but you can make a case for Bouwmeester, seeing that he's playing some great hockey with Calgary and that Markov is injured.

It's really close.

I just realizesd I was in the wrong thread. I thought it was the Markov vs Bouwmeester's thread. I don't know how it ended up in this one though.

Heheh. Made me want to make random posts all over the place.

Thread - Who's the NHL's best hitter?

Me - No, we should not rename the trophies.

Brodeur, but out of this list, it's Alfredsson easily for me. He's still among the leagues elite.
