The Hockey Futures (28)

If you ask the fans of the Ottawa Senators, you already know the answer to this question. Alexei Yashin may have spurned the fans of Canada’s capital, but even they would agree that the Russian was a talented skill player. Now playing in Russia, Yashin had over 750 points in the NHL and probably could have hit the four digit mark had he chose to…
Honestly, it is difficult to make a Hall of Fame case for Brian Rolston for the Hall of Fame, but we do tip our caps off to one of the most versatile players in hockey history. Rolston was comfortable at any forward position, and often quarterbacked the power play; a role usually given to defensemen. Rolston does have a Stanley Cup Ring and an All…
A good offensive defenseman, Dan Boyle came into his own late in his career. Boyle became a two time All Star (and a second team post season All Star selection) after he helped the Tampa Bay Lightning win a Stanley Cup in 2004. Had Boyle come into his own in his early twenties it is possible that he may have had the statistical accumulation to…
Arguably the best player ever in the second incarnation of the Ottawa Senators, Daniel Alfredsson’s feistiness and skill made you love him if you were a fan of the Sens and despise him if you rooted against Ottawa. The Swedish born star won the Calder trophy and became a consistent scorer in the NHL. Alfreddson may have been to six All Star games, but with…
One of the better two way defensemen in Hockey, Ed Jovanovski is not the player that will put up monster point totals, but he will contribute and consistently shut down attackers. He is also one of those great teammates that does all the little things well and makes your team automatically better. In all likelihood when his career is over, Ed Jovanovski will likely not…
The Russian goaltender entered the NHL with a storm, winning the coveted Calder Trophy as the Rookie of the Year. Nabokov entered North American pro hockey with the San Jose Sharks, and though they never did perform as expected in the playoffs, the Sharks were often regular season stars, with Nabokov backstopping them to an incredible record. With his career winding down, he is the…
Easily the most talented player in the history of Europe, Jaromir Jagr continues to add to his list of his accomplishments. Once he is eligible for the Hall of Fame, there should be NO reason to keep him out in his first year of eligibility. He won the Hart Trophy, The Art Ross five times, the Stanley Cup twice, the Olympic Gold and the Ted…
Following the massive shadow of the large Gretzky era Oilers, Jason Arnott was put into a position that he could possibly have measured up to. Arnott would however manage a very good career in Edmonton and other places as a dependable scorer. His career totals have yet to be determined, but it in all likelihood it will have to be a massive one for him…
In the National Hockey League, if you are a former Hart Trophy winner, the odds are staggering that you will be entering the Hockey Hall of Fame. Check out all the winners, you will see what we mean. Jose Theodore won the Hart for the Montreal Canadiens in 2001-02 season (as well as the Vezina) and became a superstar in the hockey mad city. His…
A capable offensive yet vastly underrated defensemen; Kimmo Timonen is often the forgotten anchor of many NHL seasons. The Finnish blue liner actually made the All Star team four times, but the odds of finding people who are aware of that fact isn’t high. He may be one of the better Finnish defensemen of all time, but that will not likely translate into a slot…
A very good defenseman from Slovakia, Lubomir Visnovsky has showcased offensive flash, though not many people outside of his markets appeared to be aware. Visnovsky likely has a few more years left, but unless he scores more points than he has at present or captures the attention of the mass hockey audience, it is unlikely that he will realistically sniff Toronto.                                The Bullet Points:Country…
Does Martin Brodeur have ANYTHING left to prove?  We would love to hear any argument that this man is not a first ballot Hall of Fame Hockey Goaltender.  He backstopped the Devils to three Stanley Cups, he won the Calder, the Vezina four times, is the all-time leader in goaltending wins in the NHL and won two Gold Medals for Canada in the Olympics.  It…
Considering that he was undersized and undrafted, the fact that Martin St. Louis had a career in the NHL was a surprise.  Considering that he became a superstar was an absolute shock.St. Louis took a long time to become a star in pro hockey.  It was not until he received an opportunity from the Tampa Bay Lightning that he was able to showcase the same…
Often described as the smartest goalie in hockey, Marty Turco arrived relatively late to the NHL as he cut his teeth at the University of Michigan and the IHL. He would not become a full time starter until his late 20’s, but he would go to post one of the more impressive won/loss percentages in NHL history and would become a three time All Star.…
Although the Czech sniper, Milan Hejduk has never posted a 100 points plus season, he is a recipient of the Maurice Richard Trophy for the most goals scored in a season. Hejduk lit the lamp 50 times for that accolade in the 2002-03 season and also was the plus-minus award winner too. Although he had other good seasons in the National Hockey League, realistically they…

  • 58. Adrian Adonis
    58.  Adrian Adonis The bulk of Adrian’s career was spent as a leather clad biker who excelled in the tag team ranks and was known for his technical skills.  That isn’t how he is best remembered.  Like others before him, he was given the gimmick of a playing a homosexual, but nobody before or since had played as over the top as Adonis…
