In terms of points per game, it goes Cassels and then Fedorov. Overall, I think Fedorov had more of an impact on the entire game than Cassels, but I'd probably pick Cassels over the two. I loved me some Shampoo, tho.

I need a drink.
Odelein.. he was our first Captain, but most of all the dude could party. I spent two evenings with him at the Sanderson/Dineen pool parties in 2000 and 2001. He was a blast-one hell of a guy and player imo..
I'll never forget when he played for Montreal and shot a puck at Ted Nolan's head (coach for Buffalo at the time) during a game. I asked Lyle about that and he told me "ya, we all love Teddy but he pissed me off that game"....
