Once again, I'm voting for Peter Stastny. This guy would have tons of trophies if it weren't for Gretzky and Lemieux.

- He had the 2nd most points in the 1980s, behind only Wayne Gretzky.

- He was 4th in Points-per-game in the 1980s with 1.41 points per game. That's an average of 113 points per full season.

- Tied for 6th in All-Time assists-per-game.

- 8th All-Time in points-per-game

- Stastny had 100 or more points seven times in his career, including a crazy career-high of 139 points in 1981-82.

For the third time, I'm gonna nominate an incredibly underrated player, Bernie Federko. This guy is one of the most underrated forwards of all-time.

I'm gonna quote directly from his Wikipedia article because it explains him and how underrated he was quite well.

"Federko would score 100 points in a season four times, and was a consistent and underrated performer for the Blues. Federko scored at least 90 points in seven of the eight seasons between 1978 and 1986, and became the first player in NHL history to record at least 50 assists in 10 consecutive seasons.

However, in an era when Wayne Gretzky was scoring 200 points a season, Federko never got the attention many felt he deserved.

In 1986, in a poll conducted by GOAL magazine, he was named the most overlooked talent in hockey. His General Manager Ron Caron said he was "A great playmaker. He makes the average or above average player look like a star at times. He's such an unselfish player.""

Voting Big Bird.

Nominating: Georges Vezina.

Vezina played seven seasons in the National Hockey Association (NHA) and nine in the National Hockey League (NHL), all with the Montreal Canadiens. After being signed by the Canadiens in 1910, Vézina played in 327 consecutive regular season games and a further 39 playoff games, before leaving early during a game in 1925 due to illness. Vézina was diagnosed with tuberculosis, and died on March 27, 1926.

The only goaltender to play for the Canadiens between 1910 and 1925, Vézina helped the team win the Stanley Cup in 1916 and 1924, while reaching the Stanley Cup Finals three more times. Nicknamed the "Chicoutimi Cucumber" for his calm composure while in goal, Vézina allowed the fewest goals against in the league seven times in his career: four times in the NHA and three times in the NHL. In 1918, Vézina became the first NHL goaltender to both record a shutout and earn an assist on a goal. At the start of the 1926–27 NHL season, the Canadiens donated the Vezina Trophy to the NHL as an award to the goaltender who allowed the fewest goals during the season. Since 1981, the award has been given to the most outstanding goaltender as determined by a vote of NHL general managers. In Vézina's hometown of Chicoutimi, the sports arena is named the Centre Georges-Vézina in his honour. When the Hockey Hall of Fame opened in 1945, Vézina was one of the original nine inductees.

vote Statsny

Don't hate me but I'm nominating Crosby again.  He may be young and still in the middle of what I hope will be a long carrer but he's already won more major awards then many of the players already on this list and has an amazing PPG average.  

*Youngest Art Ross Trophy and Lester B. Pearson Award winner

*Youngest NHL captain to win Stanley Cup

*Youngest player to record 2 consecutive 100 point seasons

*Youngest player to record 100 points in a season  

*Played only 41 games one season and still lead his team in scoring!*Hart throphy winner

*Rocket Richard trophy winner

*scored "the golden goal" in overtime to help Canada win an Olympic Gold

*already has as many 100pt plus seasons as Bernie Federko, and is only 25.*4th all time in points per game!*609 pts in only 434 games, that's a PPG of 1.4 which is higher than Statsny's

*won at every level he's ever played at including winning a Stanley Cup, Olympic Gold and World Jr. Gold

Maybe general traffic on CDC is down because there's not much to talk about these days?
