    If you could pick three FORMER NHL players in their prime for a shootout, who would they be?

    Mario, Mike Bossy, Butch Goring. I'm not trying to be funny, Goring was a master at burying breakaways.

    You're right......

    You weren't the only one who was thinking about Goring. I would go with Lemieux, Bure, and Goring......and if it went to the 4th and 5th shooters I would go with Dionne and Lafleur. (Also, Perreault had some pretty ridiculous moves one-on-one).

    I like the Morenz pick. I almost took him as my third after Rocket and Bobby Hull, but with the recent phenomenon of scoring on slapshots I had to go with Geoffrion.

    if you had to win the shootout to save your life and could pick any 3 guys and you don't have Lemieux on your list you're crazy, get off on Russian roulette or suicidal.

    no-one in their right mind picking 3 guys from anyone who has played to be on your shoot-out roster would'nt pick Lemieux. Your other 2 picks can be open to debate,Lemieux should be automatic on everyones list.
