The four players from the Hockey Hall of Fame Class of 2009 would scare opposing goaltenders.
The fifth electee would figure out to shut them down.
Forwards Brett Hull, Steve Yzerman and Luc Robitaille scored more than 2,100 goals among them. Defenseman Brian Leetch has more than 1,000 points. Together they won seven Stanley Cups. Hull, Yzerman and Robitaille were together on the 2002 champion Detroit Red Wings team.
Lou Lamoriello, the general manager of the New Jersey Devils, won Stanley Cups in 1995, 2000 and 2003. Backstopped by Martin Brodeur, his teams are known for having strong defense and opportunistic offense.
