Certainly. If I look halfway down the list I think, should I place Toews after Chara at #23? No. Just after Kovalchuk and ahead of Nash? No. After Datsyuk? As much as I respect him and for all the many killing shots he has dealt the Hawks through the years not anymore. And like the other poster said if I were a GM I would take him ahead of slack-jawed, underachieving (despite his numbers) Malkin. I wouldn't trade him for Crosby or Ovechkin, but that doesn't mean I expect him to be #1 on this or any other list. I have to say though, when such esteem for a player is apparently shared by 25 "experts" gathered by a reputable publication - despite the player never once scoring 70 points in a season - it definitely validates the thought.
