close poll. took Sakic based on having been, at his peak, elite both offensively and defensively. Tired old words here, but - Yzerman had two separate peaks.

I agree with the above poster on the subject of media/fan perception revolving way to heavily around team success. I think this happens way too often for goalies, as well as captains.

I don't believe people, as leaders, can transform from complete ****, to the best. I think by your late 20's your personality is what it is for the most part. Bowman may have made Yzerman much better, but Yzerman would have had to have leadership qualities already in order for this to happen. The fact that he stayed in Detroit for all of those bad years already suggests something to me.

Anyways, always a close comparison.
