The NHL TOP 50 Jagr #1

CBS Sportsline...I'm sure we could pick apart this list but JJ is #1

http://www.sportsline.com/print/nhl/story/9600770




1. Jaromir Jagr, RW: A little more support would have landed him the scoring title and MVP award last season. Even without the prizes, Jagr was still the league's most dominant individual and should be again this year.

2. Joe Thornton, C: Talk about benefiting from a change of scenery. The Bruins finally saw Thornton develop into the true franchise player they expected last year. Too bad it happened after they traded him to San Jose.

3. Chris Pronger, D: Pronger was the driving force behind the Oilers' great playoff run with his ability to control the tempo of things on the ice. He has size, strength, skill and smarts, all the things you want in a defenseman.

4. Eric Staal, C: A few years ago, Carolina pegged him as the guy to build a franchise around, but no one realistically expected results this fast. He's only 22 and figures to be a top five scorer for the next decade.

5. Ilya Kovalchuk, LW: Kovalchuk is arguably the most electrifying player in the league and has been a goal machine since coming to the NHL as a teenager five years ago.

Brodeur at 21?!?!

He should be top 10.

Ridiculous.

Not even a handful dominate the flow of a game as he did last season, returning to Hart trophy form. Defenseman are always underrated compared to goal scorers. having Niedermayer and Chara in the Top-10 too, yes. Lidstrom and Kiprusoff in the Top-15, uh-huh!

Nice to see they thought about it and didn't just go with common opinion, though do they think Ovechkin will take a step backward?

This list lost it's credibility in my eyes after not seeing Ovechkin in the top 5.

that list pretty well sucks. Why on earth is Brad Richards ranked so high? I mean, he's good... but, c'mon...

I'd say Ovechkin and Crosby before Alfredsson.

I think Kipper is right behind Broduer and Staal closer to 10.. I don't like Crosby in there

Forsberg is listed AFTER Alfredsson, Hossa, Datsyuk, Crosby, Richards, Elias, Chara, Iginla, Niedermayer, Kovalchuk? Give me a break. Kovalev higher than Demitra, Spezza and Vokoun? And this guy must hate goalies because Brodeur, Luongo and Vokoun are underrated.

I know the title of the article says that the new NHL shuffled the rankings, but he's taken it too far.

forsbergs ranking is the thing that, right away jumped at me. when healthy, forsberg is arguably the best center in the game.

Sucks that he lost out at the end of a great season.

Lidstrom, pre-lockout, yeah. But Now I'd put Nieds in that position instead of him. I'd probably put Brodeur 3rd or 4th as well.
