Gainer vs. Boomer: All-Time NHL and NFL All-Stars

Gainer gazing down into Boomer's eyes...
Since the NHL ASG and NFL Pro Bowl are both tomorrow, we decided to do a little fantasy draft of our own.  This is plain and simple.  We picked our ALL TIME best NHL and NFL squads.  Gainer flipped a nickle (yes, I didn't have a quarter) and Boomer got to pick first in the NHL draft and Gainer first in the NFL draft.  Here are the results and let us know what changes you would make.  If you disagree with Gainer, you suck because you are wrong.  Also, we picked head coaches and where our games would be played!  You'll also notice we chose the team and year in which we want that player.  It could have been his most impressive season statistically or just from a good memory/overall sex appeal.
