No player has meant more to his team since the lockout than Henrik Lunqvist.

No and no.

Crosby didn't play most of last year and the Pens still got over 100 points. If Lundqvist played 22 games where would the Rangers be?

Backstrom is the straw that stirs the drink in Washington. Their success had nothing to do with a a coaching change. Their season turned around when Backstrom got healthy.

Crosby has won Hart and captained team to Stanley Cup while having the highest PPG in essentially all years post lockout.

Ovechkin while he may be struggling now is a 2x Hart Winner, Calder Winner and Art Ross Winner in the past 6 years.

Lundqvist has one Vezina.

It really isn't that hard. Lundqvist is good, but he hasn't had an impact to a franchise like the two mentioned above for their respective teams.

You make a fair point. I could see the argument for those guys.

But that's Crosby and Ovechkin. The best player in the world and the former best player in the world.

Regardless of those two, for Lundqvist to not make the top 5 on this list would be a travesty, especially since Giroux made it after one elite season.

Top 5 players should of been, IMO: Crosby, Malkin, Stamkos, Weber and Lundqvist.

Since Weber wasn't taken 4th, I vote for him again.

I have Lundqvist 4th ahead of Weber, but same 5 for me.

Yashintangibles 12-09-2012 03:34 AM

Lundqvist.

Add Elias please

Are you serious or kidding because it is way too early to add Elias. In the Top 60 Forwards poll done recently, he was ranked 35, behind better players like St. Louis, Zetterberg, and Kopitar whom I haven't even added yet.

Edit: Noticed that you are Devils fan, so that must have been a homer vote.

The Red Line 12-09-2012 04:45 AM

His name is Pavel Datsyuk.

Agreed. Weber has my vote also, then Lundy

Affinity 12-09-2012 04:49 AM

Should have been voting Weber here with Lundqvist getting 4. He's been elite at his position for longer than Giroux.

Gritzky98 12-09-2012 04:59 AM

Wow, one good season and Giroux is the 4th best player in the world? :shakehead

Devils Homer vote ? I just voted for Lundqvist. :laugh:

I've got no intention to derail this thread. Case closed.

Sorry about the confusion. I was referring to the "add Elias" comment as the homer vote for next player to add.

I know but I don't think I could be labeled as a Devils homer when I voted for a Ranger this round and the precedent poll as well. I also voted for Malkin in the 3rd best goalscorer thread when I could've gone with Kovalchuk easily. IK being my favorite player by the way.

Elias is an underrated 2 way center, I'm all ok with adding St.Louis, Zetterberg or Kopitar before Elias but he should follow soon after. But I don't think that will happen.

bp spec 12-09-2012 08:17 AM

Lundqvist

MrFunnyWobbl 12-09-2012 08:50 AM

Between Weber, Dats and lundy.

Vankiller Whale 12-09-2012 09:33 AM

Zdeno Chara.

Sundinisagod 12-09-2012 09:48 AM

Dats

Trap Jesus 12-09-2012 11:23 AM

If this is for how good they are right now, what's the argument for Weber over Chara?

PALE PWNR 12-09-2012 06:51 PM

Hank

nowhereman 12-09-2012 07:20 PM

Datsyuk has scored above a PPG once, in the last three years, and he's coming up on his 35th birthday. 08-09 is long behind us. I think Lundqvist, Chara, Weber, and even Ovechkin are bigger impact players.

SCinSJ 12-09-2012 07:58 PM

Weber

Add Thornton
