    Ken Dryden
    Tony Esposito
    Gerry Cheevers

    Quebec-
    Michel Goulet Jean Belliveau Maurice Richard
    Luc Robitaille Mario Lemieux Guy Lafleur
    Rick Martin Marcel Dionne Bernie Geoffrion
    Simon Gagne Henri Richard Mike Bossy
    Doug Harvey Ray Bourque
    Pierre Pilote Jacques Laperriere
    Serge Savard Guy Lapointe
    Jacques Plante
    Patrick Roy
    Bernie Parent

    The rest-
    John Bucyk Bobby Clarke Gordie Howe
    Bert Olmstead Steve Yserman Cam Neely
    Dave Shultz Bryan Trottier Andy Bathgate
    Paul Kariya Mark Messier Lanny Macdonald

    Gretzky + Orr >>>>> the Universe

    Here's my list:

    Bobby Hull - Gretzky - Mikita
    Mahovlich - Esposito - Hawerchuk
    Yzerman - Francis - Gainey
    Lindsay - Morenz - Lindros (try to remember his prime ;) )

    Orr - Potvin
    Robinson - Kelly
    Park - Coffey

    Dryden
    Esposito
    Durnan

    *Although born elsewhere, Yzerman and Mikita grew up in Ontario and I consider them as such

    How about doing a little line juggling for Ontario and coming up with:

    Hull - Gretzky - Esposito
    Orr - Potvin
    Dryden

    Imagine Esposito with Gretzky and Orr feeding him the puck. It would just get ridiculous

    Team Ontario whooped it up in the run and gun west, scoring most of their goals on two-man advantages against an empty net

    Out of curiosity, do English people still play hockey in Quebec? There used to be quite a few by the looks of it...

    Moore, Keon, Bossy, Malone, Harvey (I think)
     

  10. That's the point, I just glanced at the line combos; I didn't consider reshuffling the lines.

    Ontario obviously has the most depth.
     


  11. I'll give you a hint: Wayne Gretzky <<<< Guy LaFleur's left pinkie toe.

    I feel obligated to make one thing known. I made it a point to keep everyone at their natural positions, which is why some guys that should be on the teams aren't. Like Steve Shutt not making Ontario or Sakic not making "the rest".

    got a question here.

    Why do some quebecers hate canada so much? Why do they want to leave (the Country) because when i think of canada its not canada without quebec and quebec isnt quebec without canada. What do you guys hate about us? I know this isn't all of the population of Quebec but I know its the government of Quebec.

    Maybe not the best thread to talk about this. I will only say that if we want to be a country, it's not because we hate the rest of the Canada! ... Canada is the probably the country I would be the most proud to live in (Well, I'm living in right now but as a separatist ...) People are great, just feeling we are too much different + we have multiple reason other than these cultural difference (preserve french, run our economy as we want etc...)


    I think team Ontario have the best depth and the most skillful players from these three teams. Team Ontario would win a best of 7 but I wouldn't bet against team Quebec for a one best of 1! The 3rd team don't seem to be in the same league.

    IMO, I prefer the 6 first forward of team Quebec than team Ontario but the skill of the 12 forward for team Ontario are better than the forwards from team quebec I prefer the goaltending in net for Quebec, but the team Ontario Defense are OWNING team Quebec D.

    You can't dream of a better matchup!
