He's been going back and fourth between wing and center, played center last season. But you are right about next year anyways, with Parise out Elias should defenitely move back to LW so I'm fine with him in the Top 30 Left Wing polls if you ever make those.

Giroux, then Datsyuk, then Tavares.

Voted Benn because Giroux is going to win anyway.

His edge defensively over Giroux doesn't overcome that and he really does absolutely nothing better than Datsyuk.

He's in the next tier with Kopitar, Tavares etc.

On topic: Add any of M. Richards, Plekanec or Stastny.

Toews for me.

I don't even really believe in intangibles all that much but my god does Toews ever have a lot of intangibles.

His defense puts him ahead of Giroux and his fire puts him ahead of Datsyuk IMO.

You're talking to a guy that would rather have Toews than Malkin.

Anyways, ain't nothing but a G thang. I just don't think Datsyuk is as dominant of a player as he was a few years ago.

GO HENRIK!

I feel he is close enough to Datsyuk and Giroux that I don't feel bad voting for him. In all honesty, he probably should be 5th on the list though.
