Make a current NHL team from made entirely from French-Canadians...Don Cherry's worse nightmare. Must be players that are raised in Quebec or consider themselves Francophone, no one like Paul Statsny or Jason Pominville please. They can be born and raised near Quebec, and consider themselves French-Canadian, and played in the Q instead of the OHL.

Don't have to play natural position, but it helps...

Forwards

Danny Briere - Patrice Bergeron - Martin St. Louis
Alex Burrows - Vincent Lecavalier - Claude Giroux
Simon Gagne - Mike Ribeiro - Alex Tanguay
Pascal Dupuis - Eric Belanger - Antoine Vermette

I have three scoring lines, then a solid checking line that can score as well.

Defense

Kris Letang - Marc-Edouad Vlasic
Stephane Robidas - Francois Beauchemin
Jason Demers - Marc-Andre Bergeron

Quebec has always been weak on the backend...

Goalies

Roberto Luongo
Marc-Andre Fluery

...But they have always been strong in net.

This is a tourney.

Must play actual positions. Can't have Sakic - Gretzky - Lemieux.


I'll start from the backend out.

Goalie - Patrick Roy
No brainer.

Defense - Bobby Orr
No brainer.

Defense - Denis Potvin
When retired, led all defenseman in goals, assists, and points in the playoffs. Three time Norris winner. Captain of the Islander dynasty that won 4 straight Cups.

LW - Mark Messier
Played LW at several times during his long career (mostly at the beginning), and was even a 2 time First All-Star at the LW position. LW has always been a weaker position in the NHL, but Messier has won 6 Cups, and is an all-time great, and maybe the greatest leader ever.

C - Wayne Gretzky
I really wanted to put Sakic here, my favourite player, but couldn't put him on over Gretzky or Mario. Gretzky has 4 Cups, 2 Conn Smythes, & is the all-time playoff leader in points and points per game as well as goals. Holds 15 playoff records! Mario never played a game 7 in the Stanley Cup finals, Gretzky has, and won.

RW - Maurice Richard
Sorry Howe and Bossy, this is a no brainer.

They traded a top 3 pitching prospect in all of baseball, Bauer, for a prospect who has never hit in the minors and who the Arizona GM compared to Derek Jeter without the bat. What a **** player if so.

Then they go and trade Justin Upton, a man who was 4th in MVP voting at age 23, essentially for 1 year of Prado and a decent pitching prospect.

The Yankees let old players walk, where they got overpaid, and replaced them with healthy players. The Yankees didn't have to do any major moves, they were good last season.

Arizona overpays Ross, trades for an overpaid Heath Bell, and does 3 crappy trades.

NYY > Arizona

Anaheim lost 3/5ths of a good rotation. They lost a top 10 SP in Greinke, and Haren who when healthy is a top 30 SP, plus Santana who consistently pitches 200 innings. They got 1 decent SP, Vargas, and two crappy SP to replace them. Toronto added two pitchers of Greinke and Haren's ability in Dickey and JJ, and Mark Buerhle who consistently pitches 200 strong innings.

The Angels added 1 all-star OF to replace another all-star OF. Toronto added an all-star SS, to replace baseball's biggest distraction (Yunel Escobar). Then added Melky to fill a whole in LF. And added perhaps the games two best utility players.

Toronto > LAA
