The people complaining about too many Canadians should really wait until the winger list comes out.

I only have 1 non-Canadian (Forsberg) in my own top 20 centers, but mentally throwing together a list of the top 20 wingers, I would have 8 of the top 20 wingers as Europeans, and 3 of the top 6.

It should be obvious why - with a few exceptions, the best European forwards have historically played wing, while since expansion (or at least 1980 or so), the best Canadian forwards tend to play center.

I wonder if we can now expect the Canada homers to complain about TOO MANY Europeans when we do the wingers list.

Request for those who don't think we have enough Europeans - come up with your own list of the top European forwards of all time. Count how many are centers and how many are wingers. Then get back to us.
