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.

I would say Brett Hull. He always knew where the open ice was and could pick any corner on the net with his howitzer of a shot.

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".
