I'm gonna vote for Adam Oates this time around. I've considered voting for him for a while and I think it's about time that he get in by now. Renowned for his legendary playmaking, he helped Brett Hull to three consecutive seasons of 70+ goals, including an 86-goal season.

Oates could also score as he showed in the 1992-93 season when he had 45 goals to go with his career high 97 assists for an astonishing 142 points.

Just recently inducted into the Hall of Fame, he is still 6th All-Time in assists and 16th in points.

Once again, I'm nominating Bernie "Boom Boom" Geoffrion. A highly underrated star of the 50's and 60's, Geoffrion on was more than just a "good player" in his era.

He was the 2nd player in history to score 50 goals in a season when he did it in 1960-61. His number was retired by the Canadiens (a very high standard) in 2006 just after he died.

Sergei Fedorov. One of the best two-way forwards to ever play the game. Also, one of the few players who could play both forward and defense. Finished with almost 1200 pts, 3 stanley cups, 1 hart trophy, 1 lester b.pearson award and 2 selke's.

I've been nominating so hard to get Forsberg in, and now that he finally is in I have to turn on my previous Fedorov vote.

That's right, I nominate Sid the Kid.

I know some may think this is early, but think about it. His disadvantage is that it his still early in his career, but already he has acomplished more than most of the players and will be in the top 10 (possibly top 5) for sure when he hangs them up (IMO).

- Of his 7 NHL season's he has already had four 100+ point seasons, and the only reason it hasn't been 7 for 7 is injuries, each year he didn't get to 100 he played 50 or less games.

- He has already holds 10 NHL records.

As for acolades he already has a boat load.
- 1 Stanley Cup
- The Olympic Gold Medal
- The Lester B. Pearson award (Ted Lindsey)
- The Hart Trophy
- The Maurice Richard Trophy
- The Art Ross Trophy
- And for what it is worth, he has also won 3 Mark Messier Leadership awards.

Plus all the CHL/QMJHL awards he has (Forget about it we would be here all day listing them off)

And onto of that, just to top off his impressive resume. in his career thus-far he has 609 points in 434 NHL games.

And to top it all off, he is only 25.

Peter Forsberg gets my vote. I nominate Crosby. If not for injuries he would have 7 100+point seasons (out of 7 played). To top it off he has 90 points in 68 playoff games.
Sig too big.

Finally, someone else nominating Crosby. I also nominate the Sid the Kid. He's already won more than many people on this list including a Hart, Art Ross, Rocket, Stanley Cup (youngest captain to ever win), Olympic Gold (scored the game winning goal in OT). Crosby also has the 4th highest points per game of any player whose played more than 500 games. The kid deserves to be on this list!

Oh, I voted Kurri again. 3rd most playoff points all time and 20th all time for regular season points, 5 Stanley Cups, 8 time all star, one of only a few players to score 50 goals in 50 games, led league in goals (before the Rocket was awarded).

I agree on the Geoffrion nomination. I started trying to nominate him a few picks ago. We have to have the inventor of the slap shot on this list.

agreed that LaFleur is a bit too low and Bure is way to high, but overall I think this is a pretty decent list. You could find fault with any top 50 list like this.

I looked again and really that is all I can complain about. Maybe Trottier and Potvin are too low.
And I am not surprised that the collective braintrust here puts Messier that low.

Voted Foppa..



I nominate Sid the Kid as well. How he didn't crack the Top 30 is beyond me. I understand, mainly because he's still young at 25 but when you compare to other players already nominated, he's beaten them in almost every category there is.

Certainly going to be our #1 defensemen. Give him a couple more years to improve his game and he'll be our new and improved version of Matthias Ohlund in no time

Can't believe the Foppa domination on here, looks like he's a lock for the 38th spot.

“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

Yeah, it reminds me of the Bure situation. Get's nominated on the list, then gets voted straight in.

Yeah I will soon.

who?


Look him up. I don't really know anything about him, but I've heard that he was one of the best USSR players ever. Probably in the 50s or 60s.

EDIT: I looked him up and he was an international superstar during the 60s.

Some of his accolades below:
