Seems like no one can decide between Babych or Odjick, so let's settle this here and now.

This is the first tie-breaker where I haven't originally voted for one of these two, which is interesting. I'm gonna go with Odjick.

I'm voting for Babych but Odjick was the next guy on my list anyway, so I'm happy regardless of how this goes.  They both should have been in earlier.

Gino was great...but Babych was a force every playoff game he played and kept the dream alive in game 5 ... where as Gino was benched in favour of Antoski pretty much right away.   Without Babych no game six ... for me at least this isn’t a very tough decision.  
 

edit:  if we are still doing nominations then Oddliefson...next up Lanz..

You bet.  I have Babych in the late 20’s...because he was so loved and such a calming influence for the Linden teams...he played a much bigger role and always amped it up when things mattered the most - and was a great leader for those teams too...which is why he was an alternate Captain.  Gino had a tough job and was also inspiring but one played 25 minutes against the league’s best competition and the other had a tryout on the first line one year and aside from that played 4-8 minutes a game.  Babych was every bit as important as most others on that team ... no run without him.

I said this last time... for me its all about entertainment and Gino is 100%pure entertainment.

He was heart and soul for his team mates.

Have a look at this video. Not just for the face punching damage but watch the pure joy he exudes every time he hits the back of the net. He is like a kid, just so stoked to be doing what he loves, with his mates and for the fans. No thats entertainment baby! 

Gino has to be next on the list.
