you need 4 lines, and 3 lines of d-men. like EA's NHL game.

I'll start:

line 1:

C - Wayne Gretzky

RW - Gordie Howe

LW - Alex Ovechkin

line 2:

C - Mario Lemeaux

RW - Mike Bossy

LW - Mark Messier

line 3:

C - Steve Yzerman

RW - Jaromir Jagr

LW - Brendan Shannahan

line 4:

C - Eric Lindros

RW - Georges Laraque

LW - Bob Probert

Defensive players:

line 1:

Bobby Orr

Nicklaus Lidstrom

line 2:

Ray Bourque

Chris Pronger

line 3:

Chris Chelios

Derian Hatcher

Goalies would be Dominic Hasek and Ron Hextall ( just my preference cause he was probably the best passing goalie of all time, even though statistic wise, most people would pick, brodeur, roy or sawchuck.

I picked a very well rounded team.

scoring wise you have :

gretsky, lemeaux, yzerman, howe, messier, jagr, bossy.

you have some wings who can score but also play really good defense in shannahan and ovechkin.

then you have probably one of the biggest great centers in eric lindros.

you have d-men who are well rounded and can play great defense and score as well in lidstrom, orr, bourque and chelios.

you have two really huge d-men in pronger : 6'6 220 and Hatcher : 6'5 235 who can also pass really good and deliver bone crushing checks.

and you also have probably the 2 greatest hockey enforcers/fighters of all time in georges laraque and bob probert. both of which are pretty damn big in their own right. laraque being 6'3 245 and probert being 6'3 225

from wikipedia:

Despite his reputation as a fighting-only player, Laraque has had offensive bursts during his career and on February 21, 2000, Laraque scored a hat trick against the Los Angeles Kings and was also named the game's first star.

The 1987–88 season was the pinnacle of Probert's career. He cemented his reputation as an enforcer with a league-leading 398 penalty minutes, the sixth-highest single-season total in NHL history.[2] He also tied for third on the team with 62 points, and played in his only NHL All-Star Game. In addition he contributed the most points during the Red Wings' playoff run, in which Yzerman missed all but the final three games with a knee injury.

see with these two things, probert and laraque just werent useless goons out there hurting people. they could actually play, if motivated to do so.
