    There never seem to be actually assembled all-franchise teams. I'm trying to make NHL 11 more interesting, so I'll using CAP to make as many as possible.

    Post your team's.

    All-time Colorado team


    Tanguay – Sakic – Forsberg
    Hejduk – Kamensky – Tanguay
    Lemieux – Stastny – Young
    Drury - Duchene - Deadmarsh

    Blake – Foote
    Ozolinsh – Bourque
    Skoula - Liles

    Roy
    Aebischer

    All-time Anaheim team

    Kariya – Rucchin – Selanne
    Perry – MacDonald – Getzlaf
    Sykora – Oates – Federov
    Kunitz - Ryan - Lupul

    Niedermayer – Pronger
    Olausson – Tverdovsky
    Beauchemin - Vishnovsky

    Giguere
    Hebert

    Players can exist twice. You could say the same about Roy, Niedermayer, and Pronger.

    Is it based only on want the guy did with the team or can I give NJ prime Larionov, despite the fact that he was 40 years old and sucked when he played a season for them? :)

    Nope, they've got to have been good with them. Otherwise Kurri would be on Anaheim :P.

    Who would you put on the 3rd pairing for Montreal?

    I know there might be some LW spot that I would give to C/RW but I would need to refresh my memory on those all-time habs team I liked to make way back.

    Stephane Richer - Doug Gilmour - Claude Lemieux
    Zach Parise - Bobby Holik - Pat Verbeek
    Jay Pandolfo - John Madden - Jamie Langenbrunner

    Scott Stevens - Brian Rafalski
    Ken Daneyko - Scott Niedermayer
    Paul Martin - Bruce Driver

    Martin Brodeur
    Sean Burke

    If you want this to be even remotely competitive, you need to restrict to post expansion players only. Or else Montreal is something absurd like this:

    Dickie Moore - Jean Beliveau - Bernard Geoffrion
    Toe Blake - Henri Richard - Maurice Richard
    Aurele Joliat - Howie Morenz - Guy Lafleur
    Bob Gainey - Guy Carbonneau - Claude Provost

    Doug Harvey - Butch Bouchard
    Larry Robinson - Serge Savard
    Guy Lapointe - Sylvio Mantha

    Jacques Plante
    Ken Dryden

    I didn't even have room for Elmer Lach, Cournoyer, Reardon, or the Montral versions of Chelios and Roy. :laugh:

    Thought about Gionta over Verbeek. Gomez can't replace any of the centers.

    Roy ahead of Dryden , everytime and forever.
    Also , you can't leave Cournoyer , I would put him instead of Blake or Joliat.Screw the LW/RW thing.

    Blake and Joliat are both better, regardless of position.

    yeah , maybe , to be honest it's ''all-star team'' so I wouldn't put Gainey or Carbo ( personal vendetta against defensive forward ) , not even talking about Provost.You just put the best out there.

    he was making real team , not a all-star team , and Mantha is on the team ahead of Chelios regardless.

    what about Tom Johnson TDMM?

    Cournoyer is the exact opposite of a checking center. Cournoyer centering Gainey would be hilarious for a variety of reasons. I guess you could add Cournoyer in for Provost if defense doesn't matter in this game.

    If defense doesn't matter the last line could be:

    Steve Shutt - Elmer Lach - Yvon Cournoyer

    Yvan Cournoyer

    Just saying.

    I see your point. I was thinking along the lines of an all-star team, but if we're making a well rounded team you're right.

    Montreal D:

    Harvey Robinson
    Lapointe Savard
    Cleghorn Laperriere

    I'm associating Chelios solely with Chicago. Cleghorn could debatably go with another franchise.

    Anyway, Detroit

    Lindsay Yzerman Howe
    Howe Fedorov Ullman
    Zetterberg Datsyuk Ullman
    Shanahan Delvecchio Aurie

    Lidstrom Kelly
    Goodfellow Stewart
    Pronovost Quackenbush

    Sawchuk

    Detroit has too many centres.

    how many years did Cleghorn played for the Canadiens? 4 years or so?

    I don't think that's enough to put him ahead of Mantha or Johnson.

    Also , you can't leave Butch Bouchard.

    My Detroit forwards:

    Lindsay - Abel - G Howe
    Shanahan - Yzerman - Fedorov
    Delvecchio - Ullman - S Howe
    Lewis - Barry - Aurie

    Have Datsyuk and Zetterberg eclipsed any of these men? I'm not sure. You can move Abel to LW if you want to include another center, but I love keeping the Production Line together.

    Detroit had the best RW ever, but is severely lacking in them afterwards, though Feds and i think Syd Howe have played there.

    Patrick Messier Bathgate
    Vickers Ratelle Gilbert
    Hadfield Boucher Cook
    Graves Tkaczuk Hextall

    Howell Leetch
    Park Gadsby
    (Ching) Johnson Coulter

    Worsley
    Giacomin

    Really not a great team for an O6 franchise, easy to see why it took them 50+ years to win a Cup again.

    Boucher and Cook need to be top line for the Rangers, maybe even with the other Cook at LW.

    You are right that they aren't the easiest.

    Using what you did as a base, I get these forwards:

    Bun cook - frank Boucher - bill cook
    Lynn patrick - mark messier - Andy bathgate
    Bryan hextall - Jean Ratelle - Rod Gilbert
    Murray Murdoch - Edgar laprade - Cecil dillon

    Sure I'm missing some. Still room for improvement I'm sure.

    Yeah, hextall is on the wrong wing, but it's that or Graves...Clint smith didn't play LW until he left the Rangers.

    Edit: oops forget Patrick, who actually played LW for the rangers, bumping smith. Smith can center the 4th line if you just want offense, i guess with graves on wing.
