Top 50 nhl players

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/feature/?id=81134

Let's try to keep this classy folks. Phil Kessel is ranked 47th, beating out Nugent-Hopkins, Duncan Keith, and Taylor Hall. Tyler Seguin is ranked 31st. Let the gnashing of teeth begin.

EDIT: The panel based the list on what they thought the players mentioned would look like in the upcoming season.

I thought it was pretty hard to argue with the top 10, after that almost anything is debatable depending on how you want to look at it.

Pretty much this.

Top 10 is a given after that really the ranking for any of those players could have been anything to fill out the remaining spots. There too even to clearly say one is better then the other.

I think Kessel should have been slightly higher, I mean how many guys have scored 30 goals the past three or four seasons? Like 4?

How in the **** is Kessel not in the top 20-25 at least? No, seriously? If anyone EVER says that TSN is biased towards the Leafs, I will slap them.

This top 50 ranking is an absolute joke.

I can understand why someone would have Kessel ranked 47.

Horrible.

I dont care how many intagibles guys like Mike Richards and Dustin Brown have, they arent better players than Phil Kessel.

And some defenceman are horrible underrated. Alex Pietrangelo and Kris Letang IMO were two of the top 5 defenceman last year, and Letang for me was the Norris leading candidate before his concussion

And Corey Perry, as much as I like him, is a tad overrated.

I thought Kessel should have been ranked between 20th - 30th based on what he's done in Toronto. Plus the fact in his first three seasons with the Maple Leafs his goals and points have always gone up.

Becoming tradition for TSN to put out the worst top players list every year.

the ranking of parise was based on his 30 goal pace the last 3 seasons but kessel has actually scored 30+ goals should be top 30 IMO if he improves his defense he could be in the top 15

I agree, and he would've been ranked that high had he been a Canuck or a Senator, hell even a Hab. But TSN loves pissing on the Leafs, so they put the PPG player 47th.

Why in the heck is Stamkos below Giroux?

Ovechkin at 14?

Half the players on the list are there due to hype; there is no real talent analysis.

Gaborik at 45?

Kessel at 47?

RNH at 48?

Unsure why everyone is hating it so hard.


Why not let us know where you see the problem, folks?

Problem? That a point per game player playing with Tyler Bozak as his centerman is ranked 47th.

Meh, Kessel gets flak because he plays for the leafs. Guy puts up stellar numbers year after year and because his team does not do well he is automatically written off as not that good. People claim Phil is nothing but a goal scorer and weak in his own zone; last I checked he had a pretty hefty amount of assists last season and played for thhe second worst team defensively sort of hard to look good in your own zone when the whole tea looks bad.

What are you talking about ? Luongo and Kesler didn't make the list.

Can we not turn this into a conspiracy thread? Do you really think a Bell owned station like TSN really have something against the Leafs?? Back on topic...

Burrows and Kesler aren't PPG players though :/ Had they had 37 goals and 82 points, and TSN put them 47th - an argument could be made.
