Sure, 5 or 6 years ago... no question. Today, I'm not so sure Lecavalier belongs in that "step above" group.

Pleks tied Lecavalier in pts in 2010...
Pleks beat Lecavalier in pts in 2011

And Pleks is the better defensive player.

Marleau can play center just fine as can Zetterberg.
Hard to call a guy among the top centres in the NHL when he doesnt play Centre.

Crosby? I'll uh, just leave that one alone. I think he's a tad bit better than Pleks is even with a broken skull.
When he plays? Of course.

For the last year.... hes done about as much as Markov. Markov is a top 10 D in the NHL, but little good its done the Habs this season. Sid's in a similar situation.
