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.

Andy V. needs a job.

Nic Lidstrom from the Stanley Cup Champs is by far the best player in the NHL. This player is a leader both off and def for the team and has been hands down the best player on the ice since Mario Lemieux retired.

Iginla - period. Points do not equate into "the best." The overall package is what the measurement is and Iginla has no peer. He can score and does it nearly as well as anybody. He is tough and does fight. He doesn't float and he does play defense. Plus, he's a leader with few contemporaries. Perhaps Crosby or Ovechikin will pass him soon, for now, Iginla does it all and by definition is the complete package. Period.

Crosby is becoming the whole package. His backchecking is improving and becomeing a great two way player. Ovechkin rarely crosses the blue line in his own end

Obviously Crosby and Ovechkin. However, you must consider a guy like Iginla as he has a lot of intangible value. Also, Lidstrom who can do it all. Dont forget Brodeur who has carried that team on his back for most of his career.

The BEST player in the NHL is none other than JAROME IGINLA! Pound for pound this player can do everything and anything to make other teams' best players look like chump change. GO FLAMES GO!!!!

Martin Brodeur - Should pass Roy in wins and Terry in shutouts this season.

Has to be Ovechkin. The guy skates like the wind, has great hands, scores goals at rate unseen since the early 90's, backchecks and loves to hit. It's amazing to me that he will continue to get better for quite a few years. After that it's a tossup between Crosby,Malkin,Iginla,Lecavalier and Lidstrom. Stamkos is now here and Tavares is coming next year..so that title will become even more precarious. Man, what a talent surge the NHL is having.

Nobody. I am not saying anything right now until play is well underway. last couple of years some players were great at the beginning of the season and then were losers by the end of it. Others were scarely on the map and then stars in their own right by April. Won't have any serious contenders until Xmas.

Best all around player who I'd like on my team is Vinny Lecavalier. Solid player year after year, shoots, pass, checks, fights when necessary.
