Left Wing: Brendan Shanahan
Center: Ron Francis
Right Wing: Dino Ciccarelli
The greatest player in Hartford Whalers/Carolina Hurricanes is an ideal choice to center the third line. Francis was well respected during his playing days, winning the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy on three occasions. Francis was also a strong defensive player, in addition to being the fourth all time in points.
His linemates will be two former Detroit Red Wings.
Brendan Shanahan was one of the NHL's most productive offensive players at a time when scoring was declining (aka the deadpuck era). He only scored fewer than 20 goals twice during his career and was an integral player for Scott Bowman's Stanley Cup-winning teams in 1997-1998 and 2002.
Dino Ciccarelli's conduct often overshadowed his accomplishments on the ice. This is a big reason why he had to wait eight years to be inducted in to the Hall of Fame. However, 608 career goals won't keep him off this team.
Ciccarelli may not be the best player to never win a Stanley Cup, but he is the best player that was never selected in the NHL draft.
