Taimanov Sicilian has great flexibility so you can do just about anything with it - head for Scheveningen or Sveshnikov lines for example.
Najdorf is exciting but the theory knowledge is frightening!
I agree about the Dragon being an exciting opening.
Against d4, carnage (sorry - excitement) lines would be The Botvinnik Semi-Slav or the Benoni. The Kings Indian is loads of fun in certain lines but again there is a lot to learn.
Or how about the Dutch. Gives you something fun to play against 1.c4 and 1.Nf3 as well as d4 if you know your stuff.
The really mad stuff in e4 doesnt have to be Sicilian either. The Max Lange attack is crazy stuff, and the Kings Gambit will usually lead to an exciting game.
