Where is Trottier? 500 goals, ton of points, 5 or 6 cups. Hart winner, one of the great 2 way fowards ever.

Kariya is there. Sellanee won a few scoring titles he should be ther over Kariya.

Pronger at 70? Look at the names behind him. He isnt even a HOF yet in my opinion. Its a disgrace Luc Robataile is so low.

For NYR defensemen vs. NYR defensmen Leetch should be ahead of Brad Park

I dont want to offend anyone but why is Sakic so high. Top 20 all time? No way.

Mogilny was a great player, but everyone behind him was better then him.

I thought Recchi and his stats couldve made it. But that is just my opinion.

Ill be honest there are the older players who I never heard of, so I will not argue on that.

It is not that bad but there are some things that make you scratch there head.

This proves that no one can make a perfect list. No one can because there will always be certain arguments that will come up.

For example the number one player of all time: Dave Schultz.
