I was just wondering throughout years in hockey, what would be your list for the most iconic people in hockey.

1) Lord Stanley
2) Wayne Gretzky
etc.

Wayne Gretzky.

When people that have never watched hockey in their life think of hockey, thats the first name that comes to mind.

Honourable mention to Jules Winnfield, Chris Chelios' youth hockey coach....

It depends where you are from. If you are from Sweden, Forsberg will be on there. If you're Czech, Hasek will be on that list. Selšnne would be on there for Finns and so on.

The answer changes depending on your nationality.

Gretzky, Howe, Orr, M. Richard and Lemieux would be my 5.

Gretzky absolutely HAS to be #1.

People who have literally never seen a hockey game in their life know who Wayne Gretzky is.

No Brodeur?

Gretzky
Crosby
Brodeur
Howe
Orr

Not in that order, but people who don't even know hockey tend to know who Marty is.
