The 90s: Who wore it best?

Harry How

The last day of the series is upon us. Today we investigate three players. Tomorrow we will have a recap of all the winners.

90: none

91: none

92: Gabriel Landeskog (2012): Before he was even drafted into the NHL, MHH had a story about him. Gabe was drafted by the Colorado Avalanche 2nd overall in the 2011 draft. In December 2011 I was invited, by his PR firm, to spend time with Gabe and get to interview him privately. Well, I brought Cheryl with me and we brought MHH an exclusive interview. We ran it in multiple parts (1, 2, 3, 4). He is the youngest Swedish-born player to score a NHL goal. He started the Landeskoging meme (you can buy the Tshirt here, some money goes to charity), he went on to win the Calder Trophy. The Avalanche named him their new Captain before the season was locked-out. Thus far Gabe has played 86 games, has 23 goals, 30 assists and 55 penalty minutes.

93: none

94: Ryan Smyth (2008 and 2009): Ryan was drafted 6th overall by the Edmonton Oilers in the 1994 draft. July 1st, 2007 Ryan signed with Colorado as a Free Agent for 31.2 million dollar contract for five years.In his two seasons with the Avalanche, Smyth played 132 regular season games, had 40 goals, 56 assists and 112 penalty minutes. He also played 8 playoff games, had 2 goals, 3 assists and 2 penalty minutes. Colorado traded Smyth to LA for Tom Preissing, Kyle Quincey and Luke Walker.
