Gretzky, Lemieux, Howe, Orr, Bourque, Hasek, Laraque vs Fedorov, Osgood

It's the offseason, I'm bored, so how about a crazy poll.

All players listed are in their prime and healthy. Which team would you pick?

TEAM A

Lemieux - Gretzky - Howe
Laraque - Laraque - Laraque
Laraque - Laraque - Laraque
Laraque - Laraque - Laraque

Orr - Bourque
Laraque - Laraque
Laraque - Laraque

Hasek

TEAM B

Fedorov - Fedorov - Fedorov
Fedorov - Fedorov - Fedorov
Fedorov - Fedorov - Fedorov
Fedorov - Fedorov - Fedorov

Fedorov - Fedorov
Fedorov - Fedorov
Fedorov - Fedorov

Osgood

Prime Hasek is the only thing that can keep Team A in the game, if he can limit the Fedorovs to 1 or 2 goals.

The Laraques are too much of a weak link, and they can't play defense or centre. The Fedorovs can, and have, lined up at every position including defense.

Team A's top unit might play 30-35 minutes max, while Team B can role every unit equally.

The speed and depth of Team Fedorov should give them the edge.

I was actually going to have Fedorov in goal too but then I thought it would be a blowout for team A

Well, they would certainly double shift Gretzky like Slats always did, and probably Mario and Gordie too, so it would actually look like this:

Laraque-Gretzky-Howe
Laraque-Lemieux-Howe
Laraque-Gretzky-Lemieux
Laraque-Laraque-Larauqe

Orr-Laraque
Laraque-Bourque
Laraque-Laraque

The two Laraques on defense would kill them, lol. If they could do this, I take the team of Hall of Famers and big Georges.

If I'm not allowed to edit lines, I take the Fedorovs.

hasek would probably have to keep team A in the game.

puck possession of team B


i would split all the elite players of team A. those players often carried much weaker teammates.

but team B would still use double coverage on team A's elite players.

Team A

Ice time is key here.

The majority of ice time would go to the first line for offense and defense, and Hasek would get the job done when they are on the bench.

Team B would blow Team A out of the water. Come on guys, this is Sergei Fedorov, not some average NHLer. His team would essentially be on the PP nearly the entire game. Even with double-shifts for Team A, the quasi-permanent man advantage enjoyed by a team composed entirely of a player of that calibre is too much to overcome, no matter who's playing on the other side.

I would just like to say this is the most random thread ever, but its awesome. This would be so great to watch. I'm putting money on team B. Fedorov is a hall of famer for sure and was once league mvp. Having that many of him can easily neurtralize the opposing stars, (he did win 2 selke trophies) and completely over-power them.

Went with team A. Imagine how amazing The Great One would be if he had 13 bodyguards on the team! I mean, he always had one or two, but now he would have more confidance and freedom on the ice than ever before.

...I'm kidding, of course. But, as someone mentioned, the all-time greats on team A can be split up a bit, and double shifted. You would see a line of Laraques only about 4 minutes total, and they would start a fight before any scoring chances popped up.

Plus, whenever most of them were on the ice at the same time, Lemieux, Gretzky, Howe, Orr and Bourque would feast on Osgood.

Assuming it's one game, team A should win with the score for both teams near or over 10. But a playoff series would go to the Fedorovs because team A would tire quickly.

Play the top pairing for 40 minutes and the first line for 35+. Let Hasek keep them in it when they're off. Never have all Laraques on at the same time.

Over a 7 game series with Team B rolling 4 lines, Team A would not be able to handle them.

The top line for team A is crazy good...but 3 lines of Laraque will hurt your team greatly.

If you spread out the talent on team A there might be a chance to win, but as I said...3 lines of Laraque would be too much of a burden.

3 lines and 2 pairings of Laraque will allow more goals than Gretzky, Howe, Lemieux, Orr and Bourque can score.

Team B.

I love Hasek...but even if he was able to limit the Fedorov's scoring, we have to remember Fedorov was a beast defensively in his prime too. He can still defend those superstars on the other side.

However, if Laraque can bait enough of the Fedorovs into major penalties...then all bets are off.
