ESPN’s Greg Wyshynski posted a lengthy article in which he discusses the “Mount Puckmore” lineups for the Atlantic Division’s NHL teams:
Potential replacements: Pavel Datsyuk, C (2001-16); Alex Delvecchio, C (1950-74); Sergei Fedorov, C (1990-2003); Chris Osgood, G (1993-2001, 2005-11); Terry Sawchuk, G (1949-64); Henrik Zetterberg, C (2002-18)
Puckmore coach: Scotty Bowman (1993-2002)
Puckmore GM: Jack Adams (1927-62)
When you have 800 goals to your name, your face is going to be up on a dang mountain. Joining Howe is his linemate “Terrible” Ted, a player so tough that the NHL developed the elbowing penalty to limit his particular talents. Yzerman and Lidstrom were the faces for two decades of Detroit dominance, both having played over 1,500 games with the Red Wings. It’s hard to make a case for anyone else over these immortals.
Wyshynski continues, and there are voting options for the various teams’ “Mount Puckmore” lineups.
