After contemplating a number of potential combinations, here’s what I came up with…
Vinny’s a handsome bastard. Between the French name and the lightning bolts on his pants, you know he gets more tail than Sinatra.
Yeah, Sean Avery certainly deserves consideration, and I guess B.A. used to want to pummel Murdock, so that fits nicely with Avery’s past relationships with teammates. But women’s fashion? Murdock was crazy, but not that crazy.
Burrows is the boy. He runs his yap, flies around like a madman, and will gladly drop the gloves. No word yet if he has an imaginary dog named Billy.
Donald Brashear? Not so much. I mean, I don’t remember B.A. beating up too many high school kids.
I’m going with Derek Boogaard. Pigmentally challenged or not, he’s the baddest man on skates and would look swell in a Mohawk. I bet he even drives a van.
Chris Chelios is the oldest of the old. But I don’t recall Hannibal having a vagina.
Joe Sakic is too squeaky clean to get involved in any military operations. Peter Forsberg could make a nice Hannibal, but he’d probably injure himself lighting the cigar.
I think only one man has the experience, grit, and toughness to lead a squad of mercenaries like the A-Team. And that man is Gary Roberts. Hell, Roberts is a one man A-Team.
Feel free to play along at home. Come up with your own A-Teams and email them to someone who cares. And don’t miss next week when we ask the question: Which NHL players would make the best Golden Girls?
