NHL Top 5's

NHL Top 5's

Postby PornoGil » 26 Jan 2012, 12:06

I think every sub-forum should have its own Top 5 thread. We like lists, and I think this could encourage more content. Figured the NHL forum was the obv place to start.

Top 5 NHL Players Right Now

Buccigross just started a Top 100 list.

(I'm not including Crosby due to the uncertainty regarding his concussion problems.)

5. Shea Weber, D, NSH - The evolutionary Al MacInnis. I give him the slight edge over Chara for being a little more well-rounded and not having as much talent around him.

4. Henrik Lundqvist, G, NYR - Has been ridix consistent over the years behind some mediocre teams. Now that he's got a quality team around him, his numbers are as good as anyone's.

3. Steven Stamkos, C, TB - The Kevin Durant of the NHL. Does one thing really well, but it's the most important thing, and he does it much better than anyone else.

2. Evgeni Malkin, C, PIT - More of a complete offensive player than #3, but not as much of an all-around player as #1.

1. Pavel Datsyuk, C, DET - Best 2-way player in the game, and the most fun :gay: player to watch, IMO.

I have the NHL League Pass so I can watch Shea Weber's games.

Ballz, I hereby invite you to move here so you won't need the league pass to watch Shea.

Like the Durant comp with Stamkos, and obviously the Lundqvist nod. Besides Peter Forsberg, I can't think of anybody in the last 15 years who was as skilled as Datsyuk while also being such a good defensive forward.

Good call on fedorov. I'm unduly influenced by familial Wings fans who always used to complain unfairly about him.

Clayton: Top 5 puck carrying defenseman ever. in a post.



Honourable mention: Paul Reinhart, Denis Potvin, Steve Duchesne and for DTF, Brian Leetch.



5. Jyrki Lumme - Biased here, but I don't care. That guy could carry a puck!





4. Scott Neidermayer - His stats don't compare to some of the others because he played on a defense-oriented team most of his career, but he was smooth.





3. Phil Housley - Great helmet too.





2. Paul Coffey - Ridiculously good skater. Like an extra forward out there. Great hair.





1. Bobby Orr - obv



though even he made mistakes:



Pat Quinn almost killed him, lol

I remember Phil-House from NHL 94.

You left off Sabre-great Al Iafrate.

You're right. Bad ommission on my part. Iafrate also has one of the best all time sports quotes, "empty net goals are for faggots".

Did you not count Sergei Federov as a defensemen because he bounced back and forth between there and wing?

Hmm? That seems wrong.


I was more interested in the lack of Nik Lidstrom.

A Hart Trophy-winning center who got put at defense on an absolutely loaded team by a borderline-insane coach trying to prove a point of some kind doesn't really count.

I know he's a TRU American hero, and absolutely deserves this spot, and that I only saw the tail end of his career, but Phil Housely might have been one of the worst defensive d-men I've ever seen.
