Gőlbez's 2007 NHL Dream Team

by Gőlbez

Since I'm somewhat bored and there isn't a lot of hockey news to talk about, it's time to update my NHL Dream Team.

The premise is simple: Select your dream team roster based on players CURRENTLY in the NHL. This isn't just about having the most powerful team as having a team of 22-23 guys that you'd want to coach.

That means that poor Jiri "Hockey Adonis" Slegr, Oleg Kvasha, and Jaroslav Balastik get the boot from my team and retired guys like Scott Mellanby cannot qualify.


Roberto Luongo (Your Vezina winnah!)
Peter Budaj (aka Nedorost Flanders)
Dany Sabourin (he's great at doing nothing)


Zdeno Chara - Lubomir Visnovsky (the odd couple on skates)

Nick Lidstrom - Mattias Ohlund (Yes, I hate Lidstrom, but I also enjoy watching him control the game like he does)

Karlis Skrastins - Andrej Meszaros (The Iron Man and The Butcher)

Gaborik-Crosby-Demitra (You just try stopping this line)

Havlat-Handzus-Elias (The two bratty playboys sandwiching the big friendly giant)

Bulis-Pahlsson(is god)-Linden (the ultimate PK line of death)

Prucha-Plekanec-Brule (The spunky kid line)

Reserves: George Parros (We can film movies in the press box when he's not kicking Maddox-like ass), Vladimir Orszagh (on the IR)

Labels: , ,

Any fan line-up that does not include the defensive pairing of Vishnevski and Visnovsky is a waste of time in my book.

Fortunately, it's Friday, and I love wasting time :)

Good work, Jes.
Lots of health issues up front. But I like your D, from Luongo out.
Sean Avery-Corey Perry-Steve Downie
