During the NHL media tour, 14 star players were asked by ESPN's Craig Custance "to list three players they'd want if they were starting a franchise from the ground up".
Sidney Crosby was the overwhelming winner. Isles captain John Tavares received one first place vote -- and it came from future Ranger captain (?) Ryan McDonagh. "He makes everyone around him better. Very underrated skater. Big-time shot. He can play any situation."
Tavares voted for Sidney Crosby, Shea Weber and Jamie Benn.
