Essentially going by that, there's only a few in the league.

Crosby
Malkin
Ovechkin
Kane
Brodeur

(off the top of my head)
Kane? Like Patrick Kane? Hes the 4th best player on his team....IMO at least. After watching the two games we had against SJ I don't see how you can think Richards is anywhere near the level of Joe Thornton. Richards is more physical and has a defensive edge, but just about every shift Thornton dominates the puck possession and consistently creates chances for others. I love Richards but at even strength his playmaking is rather limited to ripping the puck toward the front of the net.
