I am surprised so many of you would not term him a "great" player or an "elite" player in the NHL. Like I said I dont think you get named to every Team Canada since 2002 when you were only 22 years old by not being a special talent. He was leading the NHL in goals early on this year before he got injured. He plays both great offense and great defence, something very few top forwards in the league do to his extent. How many elite players at the forward position are there in the NHL, I would imagine 15-20 around. If that is the case he is definitely one of them in my books.
