Both my vote and nomination got in :).

I'm gonna vote for Bryan Trottier. He was a dominant force on the Islanders for a long time and also won six Stanley Cups (four with the Islanders and two with the Penguins.)

He scored over 100 points six times in his career, including five years in a row. He had eight seasons of more than 60 assists.

I'm gonna nominate Luc Robitaille. This guy is arguably the best left-winger of All-Time, with a strong emphasis on arguably. But he's up there with guys like Bobby Hull, Jari Kurri and Alex Ovechkin.

He has the most goals and points All-Time as a left wing, and is 2nd in assists to only Johnny Bucyk. He's currently 21st in points among all positions with no one poised to pass him any time soon. He still stands at just 10th all-time in goals with a whopping 668 goals.

He was noted for his powerplay prowess as he's 4th in powerplay goals with 247. He was 3rd until Selanne just recently passed him. For comparison's sake, Jagr is the only player even close to matching that total as he has 189 powerplay markers. Beyond that, you have to go to Iginla's 159. Safe to say that he'll stay in 4th for a while.

Voting: Big Bird.

Larry Robinson was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1995. He played 17 seasons for the Montreal Canadiens and another three seasons for the Los Angeles Kings, until his retirement after the 1992 season. He won the Norris trophy twice as the league's most outstanding defenceman and won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player of the 1978 playoffs. Robinson was a dominant player whose talent and leadership helped lead the Canadiens to six Stanley Cups.

He was also a member of Team Canada in the 1976, 1981 and 1984 Canada Cup tournaments and was an international All-Star team selection in the 1981 IIHF World Championships. He holds an impressive career rating of +730, the NHL career record, including an overwhelming +120 in 1976–77 (second only to Bobby Orr's record plus-124 in 1970–71, and with Orr, the only two players to have a plus-minus rating of +100 or greater for a season). Also has the NHL record for playing 20 consecutive seasons in the playoffs, 17 of them with the Canadiens.

Nominating: Georges 'The Chicoutimi Cucumber' 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: Tretiak (arguably the best goalie to ever play the game)

Love the Robitaille nomination but I'm going to stick with nominating Crosby.  Some may think it's to early in his carrer or to early on this list to nominate him but Sid the Kid has already won a Hart, Art Ross, Rocket, Pearson, Stanley Cup and Olympic Gold.  In winning his Olympic Gold Crosby scored arguably the second most famous goal in Canadian hockey history and in winning the Stanley Cup he became the youngest ever captain to hoist the Cup. He has the 4th highest PPG of any player with more than 500pts and already has as many 100pt+ seasons as recent nominee Bernie Federko.

For sure. Hey by listing Crosby as the 9th most dominant player of all time in the other thread does that mean you agree with my Crosby nomination ;)
