i will still say that sebastian was worse than any of this years team?
Crosby is a great player, but I'd have to say Ovechkin, who is also a great player but doesn't have the same kind of support, and who does something great on almost every shift." - Jaromir Jagr [br][br][br][br][br]
tyler larter came in with a big reputation and only lasted a handfull of games. Phil Butler did nothing but get thrown ut of games and marcus adolfson the only thing i can remember of him was taking us to court for unfair dismisle which was a joke as he did suck big time
Ok, after thinking about it Id say: #1) Adolfssen. The best thing he did was a big hip check on someone. Put a chain on him and he would be a legend in fans eyes nowdays. At the time though we had a good standard and the fans knew what they were watching. Also Blaisdell didnt put up with any rubbish and so he was well and truly sacked off!
2) Lindsay. Absolutely poor. Cant really picture him making a top drawer save
3)Sebastian. Cudnt skate when he came over. Got a little better at times and carried the puck ok but thats more a sign of how the league has dropped. Was a legend first time round, ruined the image I had of him.
4) Pelletier. Came in to replace a stay home D man who didnt hurt the team. Instead, came in and thought he was a winger and made on average 2or3 passes a game. Was liked because he talked to fans and was charming, whilst on the ice he threw himself (pointlessly most of the time, meaning again others had to cover for him when players simply danced around him)but his lack of on ice ability means he makes the top 5. 5) Steve Barnes. Would make a top D man in the elite league but didnt suit the ISL physical game and the old Nottingham rink. Bench warmer for most of the season

I agree with those people who say it is wrong to pick a 'worst' player as quite often a player might carrying an injury, or playing in a system or role that doesn't suit him, or genuinely suffering from a loss of form or confidence. I also think that to nominate a Brit who (in the old days) played mainly for beer money, is also wrong. Having said all that - Old Rink - Sergei Gavrilenko/Pete Chiarelli new rink - the one and only Scott Allison get my votes for the biggest disappointments
