Ville Peltonen holds the title in my home town for now, but Tuomo Ruutu will give him a run for his money soon.

You could, but you would be lying. Tootoos older brother was widely recognized by scouts as the better hockey player, but sadly couldn't adjust to live further south and committed suicide playing in the WHL.

I don't think so. Potvin was better than all of the above.

not sure if sarnia is on here but the best would be Dino Ciccarelli, and the last would be Pat Verbeek, no not a fan of Ciccarelli myself but his numbers are undenyable as far as good player goes, best player from Cambridge (Preston section i believe) would be Bryan Little but he's not in the NHL yet.

Kenny Linsman would be on par with Muller or just a bit below. Scott Arniel would probably be in the 4th spot

I forgot about Wayne Cashman he had over 1000 points might have to give him the 2nd spot so here it is:
1) Doug Gilmour
2) Wayne Cashman
3) Kirk Muller
4) Kenny Linseman
5) Scott Arniel
