    Name your guys who would rocket into top 5 superstar players in NHL if they were suddenly elite at what happens to be their biggest "weakness."
    So only one attribute which is average or good becomes elite. Who, what, how good?

    Example Johnny Gaudreau with elite physical strength would blaze past the defenders with speed and grit only. Barkov could be close to McDavid with elite rockets added to his hands, vision and size.

    Crosby is very well rounded. His biggest weakness is that he seems like a tool/has a punchable face so people want to dislike him.

    Malkin, seems to do everything at a high level. Durability, is his biggest downfall imo

    Nick Leddy if he was good at defense.

    Anders Lee if he was a good skater.

    Josh Bailey if he ever shot.

    McDavid is pretty bad on the dot, I'd say that's a bigger weakness than his shot

    Leon Draisaitl with elite wheels would be pretty darn scary. Boeser too.

    Auston Matthews with a human nose and forehead would give him elite speed due to reduced drag.
    I've ran the calculations here in the NASA wind tunnel facility and his speed on scale from 1-10 would go to 11.
