If I were to just choose 3 forwards and not 3 by the positions they usually played, he would had made my cut. LaFontaine is one of those great "what could had been" type of players.

And agree with Leetch in for Housley.
I have nothing against Brimsek, but I will admit I am a bit biased when it comes to Quick, especially because it has been a very very very long time since my team has had a goalie of his caliber. Mr. Zero was a fantastic player back in his day without a doubt, but I have to go with the player I have seen play more often. It is also hard to ignore what Barrasso did during his playing days. I do not think we will EVER see a player come out of a US high school and do what he did.
