Poll Question:
Who's the best German-born player in the NHL? (Dany Heatley doesn't count). I included Kolzing even though he was born in South Africa, because his parents were originally from Germany, and he plays for Germany internationally.

Choices:

Marco Sturm
Christian Ehrhoff
Jochen Hecht
Olaf Kolzig
Uwe Krupp
Marcel Goc
Willie Huber
Other

(Anonymous Vote)

I feel like I'm forgetting somebody...if you think of any just let me know and I'll add them.

I said Hecht, but it was a close decision between him and Ehrhoff.

I said Hecht, it was a close second with Ehroff and Kolzig

Viktor Kozlov is my hero

I was thinking Kolzig too, but he used to be good; now he's not what he once was. However, he does play for the Caps, so maybe he just looks a lot worse than he is.

Hecht is a under rated player, he is good defensively and offencevily all around good player.

His parents are Canadian, but went to Germany because his dad had to play in some tournament or something, and while they were there Dany was born.

Marco Sturm easy. He has a pretty sweet shot and the speed and size to go with it.

Kolzig without a doubt. 276 career wins, a Vezina. This guy has put up great numbers with a team that has never really been all that good. He has faced an average of about 30 shots/game over his career on Washington and still has a record above .500 with them. I wish he could play with a decent team and I think he would be a force.

All these players are good hockey players but Kolzig. He is an amazing goaltender on a pretty bad team. 2nd would have been Hecht or would have been Strum? I dunno...

I've figured it out, the guys gotta play like girls!

I think it is Jochen Hecht. Keep in mind also that he plays on the best team out of all of them. He is still a good player though.

Forecheck+Backcheck= Paycheck!!!

Between Sturm and Hecht. I havent really played much attention to either player specifically, but its those two from what I hear.

When life gives you lemons throw them at the Ottawa Senators and their fans and hope it gets them in the eyes ;)

Jochen Hecht, he actually might be my favourite player in the NHL, he has a wicked shot and sweet hands too. Not too bad on D. Also, he has an interesting story behind how he grew up playing hockey...

Uwe Krupp was! Willie Huber was a pretty good defenceman in his day, too. Hecht is probably the current best. I thought Goc would be a better player but he hasn't shown me much to this point.

Goc, that's who I was forgetting.

And about Krupp--I'm not sure Clint Malarchuk would agree with you there!
