    I say it's my man, "Bam-Bam" Cam Neely. Because he's got all 3 dimensions of highlight footage - goals, hits, and fights. Really, you could make a "best of" vid out of EACH of these categories for him.

    (oh, the other reason for me picking Cam is that I am a VERY biased Bruin's fan - but you knew that already ;))

    Potentially?

    From detailed newspaper accounts I'd say:

    Cyclone Taylor.

    Depends on what you like really but Lemieux is such an easy name to throw out.

    My Goodness. So many & in no particular order.... for speed, offensive creativity...

    Orr
    Hull
    Gretzky
    Perrault
    Lafleur
    Lemieux
    Jagr
    Bure
    Cournoyer .... etc

    .... a considerable number of Defensive Specialists playing up front as well & many on the smaller size, be it Henri Richard, Dave Keon, Theo Fleury, Datsyuk or whomever. If you appreciate smart hockey nuanced by the goals they prevent as much as guys going Coast-Coast or whatever, all kinds of spectacular plays that go unnoticed. Those to me "Highlight Reel" quality. Saves as well of course. Halak's with Montreal several years back for example, amazing Playoff performance. Hasek vs Team Canada & so on.

    Plays, goals, hits AND fights, though? Kind of hard to beat Neely for a highlight reel that has EVERYTHING?

    I'll say the Sedins or Ovechkin. They're behind a few others, play-wise, but have the big advantage of HD which makes for a more enjoyable highlight reel.

    Gil Perreault's 250'th was amazing, but I can't find it. A little team Canada dazzle then perhaps....
