Saw this game floating around online couple years ago, thought it'd be cool to do something fun during these dog days. Like any game, there are rules. The rules are simple. You’re going to build the best starting lineup out of players who’ve played for a team you like. Here’s how it works. You need three forwards, two defensemen and a goalie. Position of players doesn't matter (C/W) A player must have played at least one regular-season game to qualify for a team’s roster. Playoff games do not count in this game. If a player had multiple stints, you add all of them up. (Doug Gilmour for Toronto) Active players are allowed, but only what they've done to-date. (EP40 = $71) You have a salary cap of $200 to work with. Going by franchise here, so we’ll combine the Nordiques with the Avs, the Whalers with the Hurricanes, the Thrashers and the new Jets, etc. Each player you pick will cost you a salary of $1 per regular-season game that they ever played for your team. If you want a guy who played one full 82-game season, that’s $82 of your cap gone. Once you fit a player onto your roster, you get credit for their entire NHL career. Not just the games they played for your team – everything they did in the NHL. Goal of game: You’re looking for star players who had the briefest possible stint with your team. Example 1: Guy Lafleur isn’t worth anything to the Canadiens, because he’d cost way too much. But his one season in New York means that a Rangers team could squeeze him in for $67, and they’d get credit for the full Flower experience. Example 2: Brett Hull and his 700+ career goals? You’re out of luck if you’re the Blues or even the Stars. But a Flames team could fit him in for just $57. And the Coyotes could get him for just $5. I'll go with..... St. Louis Blues Forwards: Wayne Gretzky ($18), Peter Stastny ($23), Glenn Anderson ($51) Defense: Doug Harvey ($70), Phil Housley ($26) Goaltender: Martin Brodeur ($7) Total: $195 Can y'all compete with that? Give it a shot! Have fun with it!
