The Top Ten

Sidney 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!


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


Alex ovechkin is a jerk. My brother has a friend who asked him to sign a hat. Everybody else on the Caps did, but guess who said no and zoomed off in his 1 million dollar sportcar leaving all his were-fans in the dust?
He's exciting with the puck every time he gets it.
[Newest]He has better stats in goals, games played, points", and shots

3Pavel Datsyuk
You're kidding me! Have you ever seen him?!?!?


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.
[Newest]The guy is a beast!

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.
No he should be tied at 2nd

5Jonathan Toews
3 Stanley Cups! And 2 goals in 30 seconds
Not even close. Best player in the nhl
He should be after crosby.

6Evgeni Malkin
A very consistent player who scores goals when you need him to.

7John 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.
He should be #4, only behind Sid, Ovi, and Stamkos

8Patrick 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 top five (better than Toews)

Will be the best American player ever when its all said and done (and this is coming from a Canadian! )

His speed on the ice is amazing

Mr. Clutch

9Zdeno Chara

10Henrik Zetterberg
Really sidney crosby?!?!?
Henrik is actually a man!
give me a break.


The Contenders

11Kris Letang

12Jason Spezza
hey, he's good, no matter how bad his team is


13Erik Karlsson

14Jaromír Jágr

15Teemu Selanne

16Martin St. Louis

17Patrice Bergeron
Best all around player in the game today!

18Ilya 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.

19Anze Kopitar

20Shea Weber
