Chris Chelios of the Atlanta Thrashers. 48 years young
In January 2011 there has been a total of 117 NHL forwards or defensemen born in Wisconsin. In addition, Michigan has produced 9 NHL goalies.
Bobby Orr (Boston Bruins) during the 1970-71 season finished with 102 Assists
Orr, Coffey, Leetch, Potvin, MacInnis off the top of my head. Not sure if missing anyone.
A maximum of 22 players are allowed to dress and participate, normally consisting of 12 forwards, 8 defensemen and 2 goaltenders.
Brent burns and Shea Weber are both tied with 16 goals for the 2010-2011 season as of March 19th
1 Bobby Orr 2 Chris Pronger 3 Scott Nedyermier 4. Nick Lidstrom 5 Brian Leetch
tebi wongkwong has the most points because he is really good and Chinese if you don't believe me check the world wide web!!
A list of the top 8 defensemen is subject to immense conjecture, but IMHO... 1. Bobby Orr (also the overall greatest hockey player, ever) 2. Doug Harvey 3. Larry Robinson 4. Nikolas Lidstrom 5. Eddie Shore 6. Red Kelly 7. Paul Coffey 8. Denis Potvin Honourable mention: I've left out Fetisov, who is in the Top 8 of all-time worldwide but the majority of his best years were not played in the NHL. Maybe Al MacInnis, Guy Lapointe to round out a top 10.
Ian Turnbull Most goals by a defenceman, one game: Ian Turnbull, 5 (Feb. 2, 1977)
The NHL allows a team to carry 23 players on their roster. However, most teams only dress 20 and "healthy scratch" 3 players. (12 Forwards + 6 Defensemen +2 Goalies = 20)
Defensemen for the Montreal CAnadians
In a 60 minute game, the best forwards will play about 20 minutes and the best defenseman may play 25 minutes. Less skilled forwards may play 7 or 8 minutes, while less skilled defensemen may play 10 or 12 minutes.
The number of total players on a roster can vary, however, the limit of how many players from each team that can be on the ice at one time is six - three forwards, two defensemen, and a goaltender.
A team typically dresses 6 defensemen in a game, and they are on the ice two at a time in pairs. A team carries 23 total players on its roster but can only dress 20 in a game (including 2 goaltenders), to most teams have a total of 7 or 8 defensemen on the active roster, but normally just 6 in the lineup any given night. There are situations where a team will be low on forwards due to injury and dress 7 defensemen, sometimes playing one at forward, but 6 is the norm in the lineup.
- Bobby "The Man" Orr, Paul "48 Goals" Coffey, Dennis "OWNS" Potvin, Kevin "The Great" Hatcher, Doug "The Man" Wilson, and Raymond "Owns You" Bourque.
The Toronto Maple Leafs is the best team in the NHL.
http://oilers.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=430807"Beyond those limitations, the league does not dictate the make-up of a team's roster, though the standard make-up used by most teams for the 20-player game roster is to dress 12 forwards and six defensemen along with the mandated two goaltenders. Rarely a team will use 13 forwards and five defensemen, but it's not overly uncommon for a team to dress 11 forwards and seven defensemen."the link above has a great article that explains the 20-player "dressed list" for games, a 23-player active NHL roster, a 50-contract maximum, and a 90-player maximum reserve list.
This is opinional, but he is widely considered one of the best goalies in the NHL.
i believe that rick d is most like mike green (#52) of the Washington capitals! he has vision, speed, rocket shot, and sick flo plus he drives a lamburginei.
The best game can depend on what you have. NHL 2K11 is really good and has great dekes, but NHL 11 is also good and works on more platforms. NHL 12 and NHL 2K12 will be coming out soon so your might want to wait for those.
The best player to score with in NHL 11 is most likely Steven Stamkos.
Average retirement age for forwards, defensemen and goalies is roughly 28 years. The retirement has moved forward in the recent years as better conditioning allows players to play to an older age. SOURCE: http://www.quanthockey.com/Distributions/RetireeAgeDistribution.php
