No. 1: Zdeno Chara (New York Islanders, D)
After dominating the Toronto Maple Leafs for a decade, it would be amazing to see Chara on our team.
The 44-year-old is a physical specimen. Despite his age, he’s still an intimidating player to play against and is someone that everyone should fear.
With 200 career playoff games and over 1,600 regular season games under his belt, Chara is someone the Leafs desperately need. Not only does he have crazy experience, but he makes the league minimum and can still contribute.
Chara has the ability to help disguise any weaknesses in the player he’s playing against, so a youngster like Rasmus Sandin or Timothy Lijegren would benefit tremendously from playing beside him.
This could be his final year, so if Chara wants to compete for a Stanley Cup, Lou Lamoriello should ship him to his former team and help the Leafs for their stretch run.
