No kidding. As of right now I'd probably have to give the edge to Chara.

I can't choose?

I think there's at least a handful of guys here you could make a case for.

Definitely D here for me. Tough call between Chara and Weber though. Ended up voting Weber.

Lundqvist. He's pretty much been a top 5 goalie for what, 5 years now? He also won the Vezina last year and is still top 5 on a struggling Rangers team.

There is no other goalie in the league I'd rather have in net.

Tough one. All so close and can make argument for almost ten guys or so. Went with Weber.

No....

Keep in mind there are already 5 players on the list that won't make the top 20. I don't think you need to add too many more.

I agree with you with the ones you bolded, but I believe everyone on my list at the moment could possibly make the top 20.

After Rask, Price, Suter, Letang, Keith, Parise, Staal, Perry I don't see anyone left even having a long shot to make the top 20.

IMO, backtrom and loui eriksson. I don't think LOUI'll be top 20 but I would be interested in seeing arguments against him at this stage.

Rangers fan who loves King Henrik, but I chose Toews because he's almost a clone of Datsyuk in terms of his two-way play. It was between Lundqvist and Tazer.

Zetterberg is currently tied for 15th in league scoring. He has DROPPED to this position after having been top 5-10 for the first 20-25 games and even leading the league for a few games. It wasn't until around game 25 that Crosby passed him in PPG or total points. But yeah... he's not an elite player.

He is playing stellar defense and is bringing clutch play when needed. Not only does he belong on a poll as a choice available for #6, he should be in the top five.

He's fourth in the conference in scoring and for most of the season has led the Wings in scoring ahead of Datsyuk, who just went at #5. Zetterberg, not Datsyuk, has been Detroit's most valuable player this season.

He's so underrated that even "most underrated" lists forget about him.

Kipper? Seriously? He isn't even the best goalie on the Flames. If you wan to add him, you need to first add Jimmy Howard and Joey MacDonald.

Suter and OEL should probably be on by the #10 spot, as both will likely be Norris finalists. Yandle should stay off unless you're going past 50 at least, and Letang doesn't belong ahead of anyone up there right now.

Hudler, Tanguay, and Stajan all get on before Iginla based on this season. In that order.

Toews is not nearly as polished as Datsyuk. Not saying I don't think he can still improve though.

As for the poll, I wouldn't argue much against Lundqvist being the first goalie, but I'm not convinced he should be this high. I'd pick Chara ahead of him for sure.
