#16-Vladimir Konstantinov. The Vladinator, Vladdie, Vlad the Impaler. Red Wings defenseman and a member of the Russian 5, probably the best line on the ice in history. Career ended way too early due to an accident in a limo days after winning the Cup in 1997. If you brought the puck across the blue line on his shift, you would be seperated from the puck. Hard. Very, very hard. One of my favorite Wings of all time. His career ended too early, otherwise I wonder how many more Cups?
