Thornton is far and away #1. The other two are pretty close but I'd give the edge to Getzlaf.

I dislike Jumbo Joe for many reasons but you cannot deny he is a great play maker.

1. Thornton
2. Spezza
3. Getzlaf

Thornton is clearly #1

Leaving Getzlaf at #3

This is completely false. If you want to say Spezza is a better playmaker than Getzlaf, go ahead. But it's VERY close. Don't let the Eastern Canada bias cloud your judgement

Over his career, Getzlaf has 369 assists in 556 games which averages out to be 0.66 APG. Spezza has 393 assists in 611 games which averages out to be 0.64 APG. Over the last 5 seasons Getzlaf has 253 assists in 340 games which averages out to be 0.74 APG, Spezza has 164 assists in 289 games which is 0.57APG.

How exactly is Getzlaf not on the same level as Spezza? As a playmaker right now he's clearly ahead.

Give Spezza Corey Perry and give Getzlaf Colin Greening and maybe we'll see a difference.

Spezza is criminally underrated around here. Howcome Heatley and Michalek had their highest goal totals with Spezza and not Thornton. Everyone hates on the sens doesn't matter who the player ,is coach GM owner doesn't matter. You cant take anyones opinion on the sens seriously on here even sens fans. Sens fans defend to the point of exhaustion and homerism because the players get no respect.

Spezza also has the highest playoff ppg and the highest regular season ppg. He is the only one averaging over a ppg in the regular season. Hard to believe eh haters.

Talk to me when Getzlaf puts up a more than an assist per game ration in a season.

Give me a break - linemates do not factor into production that much - if Spezza is on a line with Perry he's not going to see the puck anywhere near as much as he currently does. And Getzlaf put up his best season when Perry was barely a 30 goal scorer and his other winger was Chris Kunitz.

How many years ago did Spezza do that? And what was the average goals per game that season compared to this season? There's a reason 26 players surpassed 80 points that year.

Half a season. Getzlaf played exponentially well this year but I wanna see a full season worth of the same which he is capable of. Regardless my point still stands on Spezza not being the worse of the 3.

How does that point stand when Getzlaf has outproduced Spezza in both a per game basis and total points in 4 of the past 5 seasons? Or are you trying to say Spezza is better than Thornton - which is even more absurd.

Why didn't Getzlaf do it then? Stop making excuses.

What are you going to say next? It was just his second season?

Put Spezza in between Ryan and Perry and not only does that line click, Spezza probably puts up another 70 assist season. Of course that's speculation though.

Because during the year after the lockout that inflated everyone's stats Getzlaf was a rookie who the Ducks started in the AHL and then played on the 4th line with rookies/plugs instead of on the top line with current All-Stars? And they were never that tight calling the penalties again?

Bad Getzlaf for being so young! BAD! No excuses!

Because he was a 20 year old rookie who spent 1/4 of the year in the AHL. Apparently common sense isn't your strong point.

Ah thanks my bad, I mixed the 05-06 season with 06-07. Still having nightmares of those finals

In any case, I don't think Spezza's stats were inflated. He put up the same pace the year after, except instead of showcasing his playmaking he decided to shoot and score more with 34 goals in 67 games.

You said what's Getzlaf's excuse? Someone with common sense would see he was a 20 y/o rookie who spent 1/4 of the year in the minors. And Spezza's numbers were certainly inflated in 05-06 - average scoring in 05-06 was 0.7 goals per game higher than it was this year. 24 players hit 80 points that year.
