NHL: All-Time Face of the Franchise

Recommended Posts

Not a bad list but I made some changes.

  • Anaheim Ducks - Teemu Selanne
  • Boston Bruins - Bobby Orr
  • Buffalo Sabres - Dominik Hasek (Perreault is a very close second)
  • Calgary Flames - Jerome Iginla
  • Carolina Hurricanes - Ron Francis
  • Chicago Blackhawks - Bobby Hull
  • Colorado Avalanche - Joe Sakic
  • Columbus Blue Jackets - Rick Nash
  • Dallas Stars - Mike Modano
  • Detroit Red Wings - Gordie Howe
  • Edmonton OIlers - Wayne Gretzky
  • Florida Panthers - Olli Jokinen
  • Los Angeles Kings - Luc Robitaille
  • Minnesota Wild - Mikko Koivu
  • Montreal Canadiens - Maurice Richard
  • Nashville Predators - Shea Weber
  • New Jersey Devils - Martin Brodeur
  • New York Islanders - Denis Potvin
  • New York Rangers - Mark Messier
  • Ottawa Senators - Daniel Alfredsson
  • Philadelphia Flyers - Bobby Clarke
  • Phoenix Coyotes - Shane Doan
  • Pittsburgh Penguins - Mario Lemieux
  • St. Louis Blues - Brett Hull
  • San Jose Sharks - Patrick Marleau
  • Tampa Bay Lightning - Vincent Lecavalier
  • Toronto Maple Leafs - Dave Keon (most current Leaf fans would probably say Clark or Gilmour, but Keon played over 1000 games for Toronto, wore the C, won 4 Cups, and is the only Leaf to win the Conn Smythe)
  • Vancouver Canucks - Trevor Linden
  • Washington Capitals - Alex Ovechkin (tough to not say Bondra or Kolzig but Ovi is the only true superstar in Caps history)
  • Winnipeg Jets - Dale Hawerchuk
  • Atlanta Thrashers - Ilya Kovalchuk

I know I'm going to get flack for this, but Bobby Holik is the face of the Thrashers. He was the longest serving captain, and the only other reason is the fact the Kovy betrayed Atalnta.

Kovalchuk didn't betray Atlanta. He wanted to test the free agent waters. He wanted to be in-play for all 30 teams.

Player-wise, the face of the Thrashers was Kovalchuk. But really, it should be Don Waddell.

What's with all you people putting wife-beating Jew-hating Bobby Hull ahead of Stan Mikita? I'd rather the face of my franchise not say that Hitler had the right idea.

And I know I've mentioned it before, but the Google Chrome autofill for "bobby hull hit" is like the world's worst lifetime achievement award:

Maybe I'm young, but I would put Yzerman as the Red Wings face instead of Gordie Howe. With all due respect to Gordie Howe, of course.

Honestly? I'd pick Jonathan Toews or Patrick Kane for the Blackhawks. This Blackhawks team is, arguably, the greatest 'Hawks team that ever played.

And :censored: Bobby Hull.
