That wasn't what I wanted but I actually do think that there are plenty of people that did not read the OP before voting based on the results of the poll.

And no, I do not think Crosby is as good at playmaking as Jagr and Forsberg were. That doesn't say much about what I think of Crosby though.

This poll is clearing showing that most voting were not old enough to have watched Jagr and Forsberg in their primes.

Just some food for though.

This is from CzechMate in the "By the Numbers" section.

These stats show just how dominant Forsberg and Jagr were as opposed to Crosby.

Both Jagr and Forsberg are top 10 all-time playmakers.

1. Gretzky
2. Orr
3. Lemieux
4. Oates
5. Howe
6. Francis
7. Jagr
8. Lafleur
9. Coffey
10. Forsberg

Then players like Sakic, Yzerman, Thornton, Leetch, Gilmour, Clarke, Lafontaine, Stastny, Beliveau, follow.

Crosby would be closer to Sedin than he is to Jagr and Forsberg. In fact Crosby could probably be slotted at number 20 behind all the players I named above.
Not a bad list but getting assists and being a "play maker" isn't always the same thing.

I don't think that Jagr and Forsberg are all that far apart and you could take either one IMO but to put Crosby in this poll is a bit unfair as he is only 25 and his 386 assists since the lockout put him 3rd which is incredible given his starting age and time missed.

In APG he actually has done better than Thorton and Hank who might when it's all said and done be included on that top 10 play makers list.

I wonder how long the thread would have gone with out someone else mentioning this.

I didn't vote because i can't put any of the 3 as a clear cut favorite.

Jagr has the better career but also the slowest start.

Sid's only none top 10 seasons in assists is in

08 whens he leads the NHL in .91 APG with 48 in 53
11 when he has .83 APG in 41 games and
12 when he has 1.32 APG in 22 games

Forsberg also showed great play making skills 18 onward

Jagr had the toughest transition, in a way, by playing in NA right after his draft but Pittsburgh traded for Hrdina to soften the transition and Pittsburgh had a ton of offense talent and style of play which helped to draw out Jagr's offensive skill set as well.

Selšnne has some surprisingly nice numbers there, considering that some people consider him as just a sniper.

I really doubt Crosby will ever match Jagr in either pure dominance, or awards, or points. Malkin is the best player on the Pingus anyways. The games you don't play harm your worth.

If Selšnne had been injuryfree all his career (he already had broken thighbone in Finland), he would be probably considered top 20 player of all time.

I have to agree with JFG here.

Selanne don't have the tools that a top-20 player would need. With or without injuries. If some player is basically all about offense then he should be pretty darn spectacular to crack top-20. I mean we are talking about Jagr territory here. He could have a few more nice finishes but I feel like we got to see what peak/prime Selanne is about. We just didn't get to see it as long as possible.

He is still underrated in all-time lists but I believe he is going to slot in the 50-70 range after few years of retirement. Right around where he should be.

Do people really have this short memories? Jagr didnt fit the playmaker profile at all he was much more a sniper. crosby and forsberg are more prototypical playmakers, and between them, forsberg was better, at least in that aspect of the game. In fact, forsberg is a top 10 playmaker of all time. You cant just put down jagr as the winner of every category just cause he was an amazing player. Just because he had many assists doesnt mean he took the playmaker role at all. Why not put him down in the best goalie category too?

Being a great goal scorer does not mean you can't be a great playmaker too. Crosby won the rocket so is he not allowed to be considered a playmaker?

Jagr led the league in assists three times. Not something that sniper does. He was the best scorer of the three but he was amazing passer too.

Jagr's a better playmaker and goalscorer than both of those players.

did people watch forsberg and jagr in their prime? cause they dont really seem to do anything but look at the numbers. Forsberg was without a doubt a better playmaker than jagr, because that wasnt jagrs role. Forsberg has a higher assist per game ratio than jagr, both if you consider their whole respective careers, but especially if you consider the time they were both in the league. The bulk of Jagrs assists came when lemieux was his center, in a much higher scoring era. He is one of the best players and snipers of all time, but people kid themselves when they say he is best of the 3. I am truly embarrased for the people who voted him above crosby and forsberg which are primarely playmakers.

Jagr was the best player of the three, but he was not a better playmaker than either of them.

.
Forsberg played in HALF the amount of games Jagr did including little to NO games outside his prime, do you not understand how that would make his assist per game deceiving?

Last I checked Jagr put up incredible assist totals with or without Lemieux and during the dead puck era, post-lemieux Jagr was still better.

And if you wanna argue Crosby is a primary playmaker, what are you just guna disregard his rocket richard? Jagr was a primary playmaker also, like Crosby he's just a good goal scorer along with that.

Through their crossed careers Jagr posted a 1.33ppg and Forsberg a 1.25, the bulk of Jagrs assists come from the dead puck era, funny you should mention high scoring years because that's exactly where Forsberg had his career high. But hey if you consider seasons of 30,37,38,60 and 67 assists pre dead puck, the "bulk" of Jagrs 990 assists, I guess you're right..
