Wow, this is the first time in a while that both my vote and nomination got in :)

I'm gonna vote for perhaps the best player never to play in the NHL, Valeri Kharlamov.

This guy absolutely dominated in the 1972 Summit Series. Even the best Canadian all-stars couldn't defend against him. The only way they were able to stop him was by getting Bobby Clarke to demolish his left ankle with his stick (slight exaggeration).

In 2005 he became the second Soviet league player to enter the Hall of Fame.

Finally a new guy to nominate. :P I toyed around with a few choices, but settled on an already popular choice, Stan Mikita.

This guy took play making to a whole new level in the 1960s. He was the first NHL player to have 60 assists in a single season (and he did it in just 70 games).

Mikita came into the league as a feisty small guy who would rack up the PIM, but came to a point in his career when he realized that his penalties hurt the team more than benefited them, so he cracked down on them. He brought them down so low that he won two Lady Byng trophies.

Mikita also won two Hart Trophies and four Art Ross trophies.

Voting Howie Morenz.

Considered one of the first stars of the NHL, Morenz played 14 seasons in the league. He was a member of a Stanley Cup–winning team three times, all with the Canadiens. During his NHL career he placed in the top 10 leading scorers ten times. For seven straight seasons, Morenz led the Canadiens in both goals scored and points. Three times in his career he was named the most valuable player of the league, and he led the league once in goals scored and twice in points scored. He was named to the NHL All-Star Team three times.

Morenz died from complications of a broken leg, an injury he suffered in a game. After his death, the Canadiens retired his jersey number, the first time the team had done so for any player. When the Hockey Hall of Fame opened in 1945, Morenz was one of the original nine inductees. In 1950, the Canadian Press named him the best ice hockey player of the first half of the 20th century, and we don't even have him in the top 30.

Borje Salming
This guy was a warrior. He was pretty much the first Swede to thrive in the NHL, and one of the first Europeans too for that matter. He amassed 787 points in 1148 games, not bad for a defenseman. He completely proved the "chicken swede" theory wrong as he got 1344 PIMS over his career, as well as his famous and horrific injury, in which his face was stepped on and he needed nearly 200 stitches. He paved the way for Swedes in the NHL, such as Mats Sundin, Daniel Afredsson, Henrik Zetterberg, the Sedin twins, Mattias Ohlund, Peter Forsberg and Nicklas Lidstrom. He remains a fan favourite in Toronto as well as all over Sweden.

“When facism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”-Sinclair Lewis

A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."-Albert Einstein

Seriously, how has Jacques Plante not made it in the Top 30 yet? More surprising, I'm the only one voting for him.

I know that Bure is ranked WAAAAAY too high, I mean, Stamkos has achieved more than Bure ever did, but let's not have two guys ranked too high.
