"I am thrilled to have both players on my team. "And by the way - anyone who wants to tell Dion that in person should fly to Ottawa in about two weeks."

Washington Capitals superstar Alex Ovechkin came in second while Montreal Canadiens center Scott Gomez, Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo and Minnesota Wild right wing Dany Heatley rounded out the top five.
