If he played for the islanders he'd be top 5

Ah thanks for pointing that out, I forgot Giroux. Still I'd put him behind Spezza and Ovi.

Tavares winning this poll is the real troll-job.

Voted Tavares, but I didn't read all the way through and didn't notice that Toews was there. So it would be Toews

I don't get how Tavares is winning. Right now - which is the poll's question - he is a PPG center. Which is great, but not the #8 player in the league.

Giroux is literally better in every area, offense, defense, special teams. Tavares only advantage is goal scoring.
Contradictory.

I went with Toews last round and I'm sticking with him again.

Henrik Sedin, and it's insulting to him that he's fallen this low.

i'm not so sure. this time last year i probably would have agreed with you, but it's pretty clear that whatever back injury was ailing him in the playoffs last season hasn't fully healed yet. he's not got the same speed and shiftyness he used to and that combined with playing with pretty average talent has made him near useless even strength. i think he has more shorthanded goals than even strength goals this year. a counterattack player without speed is pretty useless even strength.

he's solid in his own zone and good on special teams, but he either needs better possession players as linemates to help him make use of his offensive skills, or he needs his speed back to be the dominant player he was last year again.

tldr, the devils miss parise more than i thought they would.

Shea Weber. Physically, defensively, offensively. Best defenseman in the game all things considered, IMO. I think he should've been ahead of Chara.

And holy Tavares is overrated. I wouldn't vote him over about 4 or 5 players on this list still.

Spezza above Giroux is not even funny. I would put Spezza over Tavares though, better offensively and defensively.

Voted Weber after seeing results simply to try to make Tavares not win, He should not be in the top 15 let alone #8, would have went Ovi had I had a choice in the matter.

This is comical. The fact that Tavares got more votes than Giroux Ovechkin AND Toews is ridiculous. Only on HF

Have to agree.

Tavares is great and I love him... but Toews impacts the game SO much more it's not even funny.

Agreed, though he is second in goals right now. I would take Toews out of everyone left.

Or the more likely scenario is that we're not, and fans of other teams are trying to be clever (lol) and mention Kadri in every thread.

Spezza isn't even in the conversation, because he's only played 5 games this season. I'm assuming there's a thread like this every season, so it might as well be accurate and up to date.

Giroux has been decent this season, and recently Ovechkin has been lighting it up. But Tavares has been more consistent than either of those 2. Having said that, I would choose Toews if I could. Then Tavares.
