Who is the best current NHLer?
Wed, September 24, 2008
Who do you think is the best current NHLer playing this season? Is is Sidney Crosby, the leaders of the Pittsburgh Penguins? Is it the electrifying Alexander Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals? Or is there another player who you consider better? Have your say in our forum.

Keep an eye on Patrick Kane of the Blackhawks, future super star in the N.H.L.

I think it's really hard to pin down only one player as "the best".

There are a number of really good players who fit the bill.

Hey Leaf's Larry, get some BC Bud lately? What are you smoking? Matt Stajan would be a great support player for the greats of the game. Turn off the X-Box fantasy player function and look at the real thing.

I Agree with the comments made by david, Jarome Iginla is the best player in the league, cause he is the complete package, i also have to give a nod to Nicklas Lidstrom, he can do it all on the blueline and also an amazing leader like Iginla, but players that are right there with them are Roberto Luongo, Alex Ovechkin, Sidney Crosby and Big Joe Thornton. Over time Sidney and Alex will be the best, for now its Jarome Iginla!

There are many great players in the NHL today, just as in years past however, if I was a GM building a team, I'd have to start from the net out and my first pick would be Roberto Luongo, followed by Phaneuf on D, Crosby, who's will to win and all around game will make him the very best soon, up the midddle and Ovechkin on the wing. These guys are as good as it gets right now in the NHL and there are a great supporting young cast in the likes of the Getzlaf's, Zetterburg's, Datsyuks, Carter's et all. The NHL is in good hands with the likes of these great up and coming (already here) young players ready to take over from the likes of the Sackic's, Lidstrom's and so on.

Alfredsson is the best two-way player in the game. But if I was building a team from scratch, I'd have to take Ovechkin.

There are many elete players in the NHL today, however the cream of the crop is none other than Henrik Zetterberg and his linemate Pavel Datzuk is not far behind. No Leafs in this catagorey!!

Vinny Lecavalier... over all the last three year can skate with the best ...great passer, great leader can score goals and the thing that puts him on top can fight with the best he will not back down....a totally commited athelete...Iggy is a distant second and that would be based on stanley cups

Hello!! Anyone heard of a fellow named "Henrik Zetterberg"seems to me he carried off the MVP of the playoffs last year .. isn't that the only thing Canadians count as relevant?

Matt Stajan will lead the league in scoring this season. This kid will surprise everyone. Then again the Leafs, the best team in professional sports, will surprise everyone and win it all.
