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!
If you want an it's all about me player it Ovechkin. If you want a player that makes everyone around him better it's Crosby.
[Newest]Crosby has the best skills but he has to toughen up. That is my only complaint

2Alexander Ovechkin
He scores 50+ goals a season but his plus minus is awful. He should be around # 10
Ovechkin is the best active player! He beats Crosby with no hands!
Hockey players are supposed to be tough. Crosby may have better stats, but when it comes to stepping up in a physical game he just can't hang with the big dogs like Ovi!

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.
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.
There are at least 20 people before him!

5Evgeni 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

6Jonathan Toews
He should be after crosby.
He is the best!
He needs like a 30 to 50 goal season. Which in the furure can be possible.

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
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

8Patrick Kane

9Zdeno Chara

10Teemu Selanne

The Contenders

11Kris Letang

12Henrik Zetterberg
Really sidney crosby?!?!?
Henrik is actually a man!
give me a break.


13Jason Spezza
hey, he's good, no matter how bad his team is


14Jaromír Jágr

15Martin St. Louis

16Patrice Bergeron
Best all around player in the game today!

17Eric Staal
yes, awesome, he's from where I live


18Anze Kopitar

19Carey Price
Best goalie in the NHL, in my opinion!

20Mats Sundin
Obv he's on the list, he's has the most career points out of everyone currently in the NHL, also my favorite player


21Tim Thomas

22Mike Richards
He should be number 2 behind crosby
He needs to get his game on. 13 and 14 were dispionted seasons.

23Ilya 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.

24Shea Weber

25Henrik Sedin

26Jamie Benn

27Pekka Rinne

28Tuukka Rask

29Jeff Carter
major imporvement this season from his rookie season


30Claude Giroux
Giroux really deserves a high spot. Not only does he always end up high on the points list, he inspires his team as a great team. Hey, he was nominated for MVP for a reason!
This is a terrible list, should be replaced. Claude this low? He scores 80+ points per seasons, he's the franchise player of Philly, a future hart trophy winner. Deserves to be ranked hogher

31Jordan Staal

32Jeff Skinner

33Roberto Luongo

34Martin Brodeur
Best goaltender to ever live. Take kovalchuck and kiprusoff out and tim Thomas. Then put stamkos as one and martin as two

35Paul Stastny

36Jarome Iginla
He is better then any one else on this list. Well maybe not sid and grat 8.

37Duncan Keith

38Marian Hossa

39Drew Doughty

40Zachary Parise

41Erik Karlsson

42Miikka Kiprusoff
He retired I think.
