Now in its 13th season, the hit ABC show Dancing with the Stars has seen many athletes take to its ballroom. Professional athletes who have participated include speed skater Apolo Anton Ohno, boxer Floyd Mayweather, tennis player Monica Seles and current contestant Hope Solo, the goaltender for the U.S. Women's Soccer team.
The schedule of the show, however, doesn't allow for many active athletes to participate. And it's a shame, because there are so many athletes we'd like to see on the dance floor.
So with that in mind, I got to wondering: Wouldn't it be cool if somehow, there was a way for NHL players to take part in the show? And if there were, which players do we want to see in goofy costumes strutting their stuff?
Here is a list of players that would be potential good fits for the show. While most of this list is composed of active NHL-ers, there are some retired greats on this list, as well as one player who was recently waived.
