Best Hockey Players of All Time
The Contenders: Page 6XW
For a number of years Vasko and Pilote were the best defense pair in the NHL. Vasko was also one of the all-time best shot blockers. The quality of their equipment was no where near the euipment of today, but he would hurl himself fearlessly in front of any shot, regardless of how close or if it was a slap shot. He sacrificed his body every game, every shift.
No one can compete with Elmer Vasko how did he get 71st he is much better than crosby and Ovechkin he should be at the top!
Elmer Vasko wasn't known as one of hockey's bad boys, but when he fought, he always got the best of his opponent. One of them was Orest Kindrachuk, the meanest and nastiest fighter of his era. In one fight, the two trade punches, before Vasko lands a solid blow in the head, knocking him off balance. From there Vasko grabbed him by the front of his shoulder pads, and a few punches later it was over. At one point Kindrachuk was lifted off the ice while Vasko bounced a shot off the side of his head. Those who forget, or who never knew the "old days" really missed out on a lot of colourful hockey.
The best shootout player ever he had 30 goals that 1 season and the latest playoff goal in the nhl franchise
That buzzer beater in 2009 vs New Jeresy was crazy with only 0.2 left, 0.2 LEFT!
Aswome player great to have in shootouts and very reliable on both regualer season playoffs
One of the greatest D-men ever. Career cut short by an limo accident. Highest /- since Gretzky
He would've won all those Norris trophy's instead of Lindstrom if healthy.
My Dad told me he was the best before #4!
He is the est playerV1 Comment
He only has two Stanley Cups. And a shorter career than other goalies. He was overshadowed by Mario and Jaromir. But, they could play their games because he was there stopping an unbelievable number of shots. Probably 1.5 to 2 times as many shots per game as Roy, Broduer, Hasek or Hextall in similar number of games. He was probably the best natural talent in goal of that era. "Barrasso says NO", screamed Mike Lange Penguins announcer.
Great on ice love watch him play
He is so awesome love to watch him play.
And this is coming from a 10 year old boy so sorry if I missed spelled anything
The greatest stick handler to ever play the game. Tremendous play maker and skater. As only a junior he skated through visiting Soviet teams. Quiet man and very under rated.
Wind him up and watch him go! 500 goal scorer member of the French connection, enough said.V2 Comments
Thomas vanek is the best hockey player because he works so hard and he never gives up trying so hard to be best hockey player at all and I'm very very proud of him best the best score gold in the worldV2 Comments
Shame I'm putting Plante in at 113... Sawchuk should be added too
Daniel is an awesome player. And I don't like the Canucks
Him and his brother are the best
He is one of the best goal tenders in the NHLV2 Comments
