About This Quiz

It's hard not to romanticize the heroes of your childhood. When you were playing street hockey with your friends as a kid, who were you pretending to be? In this quiz, you can choose four goalies, eight defensemen, and six forwards from each position to fill out your roster. 

Do you want a team filled with scorers or a team filled with playmakers who are going to control the puck? Do you want your defensemen to have booming slapshots or to shut down the other team's offense? There are no wrong decisions because all these players have dominated the league at one point or another.

It's almost impossible to compare players from one generation with players from another. Hockey has changed a lot throughout the years. It's gone through periods of high scoring and periods of almost no scoring. Wayne Gretzky still holds the record for most goals in a season with 92, but how do you think a player like Ovechkin would stack up if he played during the 1980s? It's impossible to say, but it's fun to speculate. 

How do you think these players stack up against each other? Start building your dream team, and we'll analyze your selection to figure out your age!
