I personally like Darryl and Duane the most.
I took the poll to mean who was the best hockey player of the bunch and I took Brent because he was the best player from what I saw.
I picked Darryl completely from a coaching standpoint.
Being a Blues fan I know I am biased but I picked Brian he was the total package and still one of my favorites. Good topic.
From a players' standpoint I'll take Brent. He was a heart and soul player. Not only did he win two Cups but also three Canada Cups. He was a typical winner, it was contagious wherever he went. He was a lot like a Ryan Smyth, where hard work paid off. His goals were workmanlike goals.
But from a coaching standpoint you'd have to say Daryl so far. Leading Calgary to the Stanley Cup was impressive. Brian is a good coach too, and Brent has shown he's as determined coaching as he was playing
Watch Game 3 of the 1987 Canada Cup series and you'll know why I picked Brent. The play of guys like him and Propp turned the tide. Had the Sutter grit, but also a little more skill and finesse. Great hockey sense.
Brian Sutter was an excellent player, too. Strong goal scorer, and tough as nails.
of the lot
For his all around game, I go with Brian.
