    I picked Toews.  Maybe just because his performance is fresh in my mind.  He was great in the Olympics and Con Smythe winner.  Looks like a leader too, more so that Crosby or Ovie.

    I also picked Toews. His overall play really just stands out more than anyone else. Ovechkin is not a team player, Crosby gives a bad image of whining and diving, Lucic is not a top pick, and Mike Richards plays dirty sometimes. Toews is a great player with great leadership qualities and would lead any team to the promised land.

    It would be a better question if it were focused on the B's:

    Who would you build around:...Rask, Lucic, Bergeron, Krejci, Seguin?

    My thought now would be Rask and making sure we put a solid D around him, but lets see what a year with Seguin brings.  Chicago wasted no time handing over the team to Toews with great results...will we be able to do the same??

    Good post.

    IMHO, I would build around Crosby, best overall game and at his ripe old age is already been in a leadership role for a decade.

    Who would I build around out of Rask, Looch, Bergy, Krejci or Seguin? ..all of 'em. Lucky for us we don't have to choose, we have em all (counting on the Seguin egg before it hatches).

    Although, I always feel you should build your team from the net out.

    I guess what we are talking about here is the central piece that the others all fit into.  It has been Chara.  This team is built around defense.  Going forward, I'm hoping that Seguin is the man.  That is why I lean towards him over Hall... it's his potential to be a team leader that's really attractive.

    LOL @ Lucic is correct. Lucic is AT BEST a complimentary piece. To think that he is a player to build the franchise around is laughable. You idiots in boston overrate him so bad its not even funny.

    i would go with either richards, toews, or seguin/hall. Richards and toews are both young captains who leave it out on the ice, hit, kill penalties, are strong defensively, and still put up points. I wouldnt take crosby because of his attitude. You see his tantram against montreal. Lucic doesnt even belong on that list, ovechkin is a a dirty, cheapshoting player who makes too much money (9.5 mill per) for a salary cap era. Seguin or hall are pretty much sure fire players, so they have to be included

    Re: Who would you build your franchise around starting today?

    Not one player.  You need a nucleus.  Not any one player can do it all
    (Gretz had Messier, Coffey and Kuri; Lemieux had Jagr (and Coffey), Orr had Esposito, Cashman, Hodge), Yzerman had Lindstrom, Federov, Zetterberg;
    Crosby had Malkin, Staal etc....

    I think a champsionship need has:
    1. Elite centerman
    2. Elite Sniper/goal scorer
    3. Stud Defenceman
    4. Quality goaltender (would be nice).

    How about Towes/Kane/Keith..........oh crap Chicago has all three of them...

       Hey Burger Boy, if you actually took the time to read, you might find that most of the posters on this board, do not over-rate Lucic.
    Most figure his new contract is too high, and he had a terrible year.
    As far as passing on Crosby because of attitude, is silly. The guy is what, 20 years old?
    A little bit of immaturity at that age, wouldn't prevent me from taking a guy that finds ways to win all the time.

    If I want to start a new club, I would like to start with the best hockey player in the world today.

    With the first selection in the NHL (New Hockey League), the NorthShore Not-A-Shots select Sidney Crosby.

    And for the record, I would start with Crosby, possibly Doughty.. I prefer Ovechkin and I do think he is better (in a game of one on one I would venture to say he kills crosby)..But that being said Center is a more valuable position, and crosby makes the guys around him better..

    Re: Who would you build your franchise around starting today?

    OP must be by Jay Feaster.  Lecavalier's never produced without him - they were teammates in junior before they won a Cup in T-Bag.

    There's a lot to be said for the "build from the net out" strategy, but I don't know if that goaltender's out there right now.  Luongo looked more human than human against Chicago for two straight years.  Brodeur's clearly declining.  Miller got lit up by the Bruins (you may have heard this, but they struggle to score) in the playoffs, Kiprusoff's been hit and miss, and the recent Cup-winning goalies haven't been world-beaters. 

    So, can I take Crosby, then deal him for Doughty and Stamkos?

    Agreed, I'm a big Lucic fan but thats some pretty lofty company there!

    More like a game of, "One of these players is not like the others."

    Similar,
    but I would wager you may have to take him in the first round, I don't know if 30 teams would pass on him...

    Toews would be a distant second...
