Congrats to Henrik Sedin for making #10 on the list of all time best playmakers. It's a huge deal, when you consider all the greats in history, and those that didn't make the cut...

Although I think they should have stuck to retired players for this list, it's a big honour for him.

Henrik is great, a superstar in his own rights, but he is not one of the top 10 playmakers of all-time.
They also don't have Ron Francis, the player with the 2nd most assists all time.
This list is actually fairly bad.

Henrik Sedin is 83rd on the all-time list for assists (65th amongst forwards) but I assume Henrik will put up another 70, 60, 60, 40 and 40 assist season to finish with around 900 assists (1000 isn't impossible) which would sit him at around 11th all-time (9th amongst forwards).

So in that respects, this list is bang-on. Plus, and most importantly of all, I almost guarantee you that most of the passes Gretzky, Francis and Messier got away with during their era would not end up as goals nowadays, whereas Henrik would have feasted off the open-ice of the 80's and early 90's. Think of the precision and perfectness a pass needs nowadays, compared to the Gretzky era where defenders were floppy and lose, and goalies were nowhere near as good as they are now.

On a pure-skill and raw-talent base, Henrik is easily top-10 if not higher. It's difficult to compare eras, but Henrik deserves a mention. He may not be comparable to Gretzky, but definately up there with Messier, Sakic, Oates and even Francis in terms of playmaking abilities.

I may be a little biased here as Henrik is my fave player but I think he should be ranked up past Joe Thornton, I mean come on....

Joe Thornton is a superb playmaker, Cheechoo didn't win the Richard by accident.

Orr and Lemieux should be above Gretzky on this list. Henrik and Statsny should be above Thornton as well.

Congrats Henrik, well deserved! Long gone are the days of the "sedin sisters" and "trade the sedins for an impact player of your choice". Before the lockout, who would have thought Henrik would make a list like this? At best we were hoping that he would become a high end second line player. Sometimes I think our memories are too short, we forget about how good we have it right now.
Sig too big.

Those aren't unrealistic numbers. Factor in the two lockouts he's had to endure as well, he breaks 1000 no problem.

LOL you think that Orr and Lemieux are better playmakers than Gretzky? Please re-look at all the stats. Oh also the 87 Canada cup was just replayed on TSN last week you should have watched that if you think Lemieux is a better play maker than Gretzky he put up more assists than Lemieux did points

Henrik isn't done playing yet, so he'll only continue to rack up the assists.

And this isn't about how many assists a player has, it's about how good of a playmaker they are. There are few players in the league today that can make passes like Henrik.

Because it wasn't in Canucks Talk, but rather General Hockey as I mentioned. It has a Canuck in it but by no means is a Canuck only list so someone posted it in General when it came out.

I don't understand how you're able to post in every thread. I come on CDC maybe once or twice a week and I see your posts in pretty much 99.9% of the threads. Dude, how do you have so much time? Got a life or anything?

I was going to post this article too earlier this morning b/c I couldn't find it at first. What helped though was that I typed the article's name. It all depends on how specific you searched for.

Im happy for Hank and he deserves it. One must also keep in mind that a great playmaker, with no one of great skill or talent to pass to, will not get anywhere near as many points. For Hank to have Danny to not only recieve the passes but put them in the net, is also very important. It reminds me of Gretzky in his last years. He still saw the ice and could make plays like earlier in his career, but nobody around him was good enough to do anything with it. But good on ya Hank, the league under rates and under appreciates the Sedins so I'll take any props.

Yep, I have school, work, hockey, a night out or two every week or so.
I just have an uncanny ability to quickly post my worthless opinion where I see fit.

I'd say Hank should be above Big Joe, but yeah. It's an honour even if the players on the list are off a bit.

LOL sit and rotate on your stats. Anyone older than 12, who actually got to watch Gretzky play would know that he got about 30-40% of his goals/assists by cherry picking/ hanging around the red line. Maybe watch a game or two and not just read up on stats. KTHXBAI

You think I am 12? Lol sure. Now like I said re watch the canada cup. When Gretzky and Lemieux played together Gretzky set him up countless times in that. Wouldn't it clearly have the best examples when they actually play together? Oh and if he "cherry picked 30-40%" he still would have 1177 assists. If he gained that many assist by cherry picking why don't more players do that? Because by your logic it clearly work.
