Wayne Gretzky.

When people that have never watched hockey in their life think of hockey, thats the first name that comes to mind.

Oberyn 12-02-2012 09:03 PM

Oleg Kvasha
BJ Crombeen
Dustin Jeffrey
Daniel Tkaczuk
Jeff Cowan

Not in that order of course.

Its ok, he forgot John Scott and Akim Aliu too, he clearly has no idea what he's talking about

Astoria 12-02-2012 09:25 PM

Short list (trying not to repeat what others have listed):

Vadislav Tretiak
Herb Brooks
Peter Forsberg

Honourable mention to Jules Winnfield, Chris Chelios' youth hockey coach....


Black Label 12-02-2012 09:29 PM

It depends where you are from. If you are from Sweden, Forsberg will be on there. If you're Czech, Hasek will be on that list. Selšnne would be on there for Finns and so on.

Foster Hewitt drops in, says hi, mentions he shouldn't be top 5 but is up there, then leaves.

tarheelhockey 12-02-2012 09:33 PM

Surprised King Clancy hasn't been mentioned yet.

Victorious Secret 12-02-2012 09:35 PM

Aki Berg is up there somewhere.

nitz 12-02-2012 09:40 PM

The answer changes depending on your nationality.

Gretzky, Howe, Orr, M. Richard and Lemieux would be my 5.

Machinehead 12-02-2012 09:41 PM

Gretzky absolutely HAS to be #1.

People who have literally never seen a hockey game in their life know who Wayne Gretzky is.

Kronwalled55 12-02-2012 10:19 PM

No Brodeur?


Not in that order, but people who don't even know hockey tend to know who Marty is.

Big McLargehuge 12-02-2012 10:22 PM

Gretzky, Lemieux, Orr, Richard, Howe
