Hfboards top 25 under 25 list : #15

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 : Logan Couture (21.70%)
#15 :

Also, feel free to propose players who you think deserve to be nominated

Alzner can stop or redirect any forward. His Corsi showed he played against the toughtest forward including Lucic. Was the top D line for Washington against Boston and New York in the playoffs. Being a great defenseman is harder than being a forward. You are always up against 3 forwards whereas the forwards only have two d to get around.

It was between Staal and Lucic for me and I went for Lucic. Myers wasn't even on my radar but I really haven't seen him play very much. I thought he was regressing big-time.

Funny how Staal was given this, and Myers is leading now...Only to be losing the next poll. Tie breaker should've been done here between Staal/Myers.
