Who needs a blog bat-around when a skate around would be so much more fun? I'll put together a full roster out of my hockey autographs, with a definite personal bias in some cases and a desire to mix in some active players. I'm going to ignore positions for the front 3, and just get 12 forwards, 6 blueliners and 2 goalies, and then show them off in random order. Certified autos only as well - no IPs, so that keeps Scott Stevens out of the 6.
In fact, there's a boyhood photo of him that is just around the corner from my place. The buildings in the background of that are all still standing as well. You knew Alfredsson would make my list, along with a third Rangers alumni. Verbeek's a guilty pleasure player of mine, and Bossy and Ovie's placement here were shoo-ins.
Pack Pull: McDonald, Dionne, Iginla, Jagr, Bossy, Price
Group Break Pull: Schultz, Ovechkin, Bourque, Hull
Trade: Landeskog, Alfredsson, MacInnis, Robinson
Individual Purchase: Schmidt, Verbeek, Barber, Hextall, Fontinato, Karlsson, Jones, Gartner
And there you have it!
