Best Answer

As far as great current defensive pairs, I would have to say Anaheim's Chris Pronger/ Scott Niedermayer or Detroit's Nicklas Lidstrom/ Brian Rafalski. Calgary's Robyn Regehr/ Dion Phaneuf has to be one of the fierciest hitting pairs in the game, and Pittsburg's Sergei Gonchar/ Ryan Whitney pairing is pretty good both offensively and defensively.

Arguably the most famous ice hockey player of all time is Wayne Gretzky, whose career in the NHL earned him the title "The Great One". He is considered by some to be the greatest NHL player of all-time. Bobby Orr is well-known for his defensive prowess and is considered one of the greatest NHL players in history as well. As seen on Wikipedia, the following photograph embodies a famous moment in NHL history, during which Orr ended up airborne while scoring a significant playoff goal. Some significant, "famous" NHL players in today's game include Alexander Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby.
