All Time Team Without Stanley Cups

On Thursday, I posted by all time hockey team. I just realized that all of those players have won Stanley Cups. I decided to try to make an all time team with no career Stanley Cups (its not so easy). I made two rules before starting. 1) Players must be officially retired. No currently active guys with no cups yet. and 2) Players must have been NHL players. Tretiak was great, but since he never played an NHL game of course he never won a Stanley Cup.

Here is my team:

Forwards
1. Marcel Dionne
2. Norm Ullman
3. Gilbert Perreault
4. Darryl Sittler
5. Mike Gartner
6. Adam Oates
7. Peter Stastny
8. Dale Hawerchuk
9. Michel Goulet
10. Rod Gilbert
11. Pat LaFontaine
12. Jean Ratelle

Defencemen
1. Brad Park
2. Borje Salming
3. Phil Housley
4. Randy Carlyle
5. Mark Howe
6. Harry Howell

Goaltenders:
1. Ed Giacomin
2. Mike Liut

I don't think I missed anyone significant. Its not an easy team to make.

4.Dale Hawerchuck
5.Adam Oates
6.Mike Gartner
7.Pat LaFontaine
8.Thomas Steen
9.Peter Stastny
10.Rod Gilbert
11.Rick Vaive
12.Norm Ullman

Defense
1.Brad Park
2.Borje Salming
3.Ian Turnbull
4.Phil Housley
5.Randy Carlyle
6.Mark Howe

Goalies
1.Mike Palmateer
2.Mike Liut
 
Borje Salming shouldnt be on the list, he was extremely overated, the only thing he was good for was taking bad penalties on a team that had no penalty killing, usually costing them 2 goals a game.

As for goalies, I'd take Richard Brodeur and Ron Hextall (Who i hated, but, you couldnt deny he was an amazingly good goalie, if a HUGE jerk)

Reading your article was a real pleasure for me � it is very well written and obviously you know a lot about the subject (I even suspect that you haven't said all you know, in fact). You have one more regular visitor from now on! If you need informations read also forex trading basics Thanks:)
