  1. Jonathan Grant Keller

    I’m going with J-Ho. And to the guy who wears his wild goat home Holland jersey to HSBC—my apologies.

  2. brian s.

    That is a pretty amazing list. I’m still going with Hecl, but I think Pittis or Kruse are both solid choices.

  3. bk

    I vote Hecl. I have zero memory of this guy in any way, shape or form.

    interesting, though, that the other 5 guys were actually forces to be reckoned with in various video games. holland, pittis, grand pierre and kruse were heavyweights in the days of playstation 1, and i believe taylor was a salvagable forward on nhl 03.

  4. Ryan

    That’s a great point, bk. Think about playing with the Sabres before the lockout. I remember scoring 20 goals with a guy like Taylor just because he was on a decent line. Satan made pretty much anyone work if you tried hard enough.

    My vote was for Pittis, but I think Hecl may take it…

  5. dave in Rocha

    It may be my Rochester bias coming through, but Taylor shouldn’t even be on this list. He was a solid contributor.

    I can’t vote for Hecl because his name is too close to Hecht. I distinctly remember him playing because of that.

    Pittis had too much hype to be most insignificant.

    Grand-Pierre is too famous for being “the big black defenceman with two last names”.

    For me it’s a tossup between Holland and Kruse. I’m going with Kruse.
