Top 10 Best Active Hockey Players

hockey_guitarhero3
Best players of the greatest sport ever, everyone on this list has played on the international level at some point, so incase you have questions, I didnt add anyone who hasnt played at an international level.

The Top TenXW

1Sidney Crosby

It's really between Crosby and Ovechkin. My vote goes to Crosby because he brings home Championships, not just individual awards. Two Eastern Conference Titles in a row, One Stanley Cup, An Olympic Gold... and the Golden Goal! The Kid is The Man! - VADERtheIMPALER

crosby #1 its no contest. just won rocket richard. amazing leader. just won cup and olympic gold. the people who dicide the hart are stupid for not voting crosby. ovechkin sucks!

I'm a huge Ovechkin fan and yes he is the best goal scorer in the league even one of the best ever but it's stupid to say Crosby isn't the best all around today

Crosby had 5 100 point seasons, he's 27. And he still has 15 years in him. Think about the pace that he keeps but having it each year.

2Alexander Ovechkin

This shouldn't be close. Ovi is so much more talented than that whiner Crosby. The refs allow ridiculous things to happen to him and rarely call anything. He gets double-teamed frequently, but when he puts his head down, no one can stop his heavy shot, which hits the net like a rocket.

Ovechkin does not dive like Crosby, voted as MVP twice in a row! - Zamuz

He's exciting with the puck every time he gets it.

Way better then crosby

3Pavel Datsyuk

I honestly think Dastyuk is one of the best players. Crosby might beat him, but I vote him. His hands are incredible. If he's not the best player, I definitely think he's the best shootout player.

Crosby is amazing, so is Ovechkin. But if you look at some of Datsyuk's best goals, he is truly a magician on the ice. Datsyukian Dekes didn't come from Crosby.

4Steven Stamkos

Stamkos scores goals, sets people up, has a great plus minus, and is arguably the next best under Crosby

Stamkos is definitely 3rd under Crosby/Ovechkin. No arguing this.

5Jonathan Toews

3 Stanley Cups! And 2 goals in 30 seconds

Not even close. Best player in the nhl

Kane is so much better captain serious

He should be after crosby.

6Evgeni Malkin

A very consistent player who scores goals when you need him to.

Malkin is no match for other players on his team orpik, letang, kunitts, CROSBY

7Patrick Kane

Should be top five and he is better than Toews

Will go down as the best American player ever

His speed on the ice is amazing

Should be number 1 as he is better then Crosby

Kane is 5x better than Toews and Stamkos

He done some very bad things here in 2015...

8John Tavares

Come on, Really? Tavares is one of the best 3 players in the NHL. look at the teams he's been on. The Islanders are really turning things around and wouldn't be surprised if Tavares averaged between 90 and 100 points the next 10-12 years. look at what he has accomplished so far. AND he's ONLY 23.

Totally him and I am islanders fan. MY FAVORITE PLAYER. the best though
1. Sidney Crosby
2. Alexander ovechkin
3. Tim Thomas
4. John Tsavares
5. Mark Streit
5. Calahaan on the rangers

I don't know that many other hockey players than rangers or islanders

9Zdeno Chara

Best slapper I ever seen. PERIOD

10Henrik Zetterberg

Really sidney crosby?!?!?
Henrik is actually a man!
give me a break. - hockeytown1229

The Newcomers

?Johnny Gaudreau

How was he not on the list! Great player in my opinion. 30 goal season in just his second season!

The Contenders

11Jaromír Jágr
12Jason Spezza

hey, he's good, no matter how bad his team is - hockey_guitarhero3

13Kris Letang

Letang is a underrated beast. He actually looks like he is the knight about to slay the monster Malkin... (I love Malkin) Whatever, GO TANGER! - 2234

14Erik Karlsson
15Ilya Kovalchuk

Why is Cindy Crysby on top of this list? Ilya is a true man, he plays with meaning, and he doesn't cry for his mommy when he gets checked.

16Teemu Selanne
17Martin St. Louis
18Patrice Bergeron

Best all around player in the game today!

19Duncan Keith

He has a amazing slap shot!
He scored the winning goal of the 2015 Stanley cup
