Hfboards top 25 under 25 list : #14

Hi,

We will use the same rules as ESPN did for their top 25 so we can compare when we're done. Also, I should specify that the poll is for who is the better player right now, and not who will be better in the future. Here's why player like Giroux and Landeskog are not included in the poll :

Quote:
A few other ground rules: As the title of the ranking indicates, players 25 or over -- and those turning 25 before Feb. 1 -- are inelligble for this list. That removes several of the list's previous top names -- including Sidney Crosby, Nicklas Backstrom and Claude Giroux. Also, by looking for an established track record of success rather than future potential, you won't find any of the league's talented 2011-12 rookies on this list. That even includes the NHL's reigning rookie of the year Gabriel Landeskog of the Colorado Avalanche and Edmonton's Ryan Nugent-Hopkins[...]
#1 : Steven Stamkos (83.26%)
#2 : John Tavares (40.09%)
#3 : Jonathan Toews (49.25%)
#4 : Erik Karlsson (54.49%)
#5 : Drew Doughty (43.21%)
#6 : Alex Pietrangelo (80.00%)
#7 : Patrick Kane (56.94%)
#8 : Jordan Eberle (33.11%)
#9 : Jamie Benn (23.08%)
#10 : Tyler Seguin (29.93%)
#11 : Taylor Hall ( 27.95% )
#12 : Oliver Ekman-Larsson (23.33%)
#13 : Ryan McDonagh (21.39%)
#14 :

dang. HFboards' love for McDonagh is ridiculous. 1 good season and he's ranked above Staal, Couture and Lucic?

Yet he was better then OEL. Why aren't you complaining about that?

The ever so popular "he plays for a small market team so he's underrated" excuse?

Homer vote for Couture.


This is a who's "currently" better poll right? Seems like (in typical HF fashion) most people are voting based on potential.

Because he wasnt better then OEL? OEL was better then McDonagh last season, by a sizeable gap.

Both players are overrated right now, OEL should be about 15th on this list, while McDonagh should be 20th.

They were both pretty even in my opinion. I think OEL was a better too, but certainly not by a sizeable gap. Marginal at best.

Indeed. "Established track record".

Staal then Couture for me.

McDonagh: 11th in Norris voting.
OEL: Not even top 20.

It's laughable that you can even post such nonsense. Do your research chief.

It baffles me when people make such absurd statements and have nothing to back it.

I love OEL, and he's a stud, but playing on a small market team will always be the excuse for him when he's ranked better then players he's not as good as.
