HFBoards Ranks: The best player to ever wear #32

A series of polls charting which is the best player to wear each number. Some rules for the players selected in each poll:

- Any players listed under the number on hockey-reference.com are eligible.
- A player must have worn the number for at least five years to be eligible for that number (although if they're better known by another number they'll come under that - ie Ray Bourque will be in the #77 poll, not #7).
- We'll only do one poll poll number so the series doesn't go on for years.
Players so far:

Note: Due to incomplete polling options (#1, #2, #3, #5, #6) and dishonest polling options (#19), the previous six numbers will be re-polled at a later date.

#1: Jacques Plante/Terry Sawchuk (tie), 37.60%
#2: Doug Harvey, 54.55%
#3: Pierre Pilote, 42.45%
#4: Bobby Orr, 87.77%
#5: Nicklas Lidstrom, 74.19%
#6: Phil Housley, 46.85%
#7: Phil Esposito, 37.00%
#8: Alex Ovechkin, 49.57%
#9: Gordie Howe, 75.92%
#10: Guy Lafleur, 47.58%
#11: Mark Messier, 83.53%
#12: Adam Oates, 29.14%
#13: Mats Sundin, 52.03%
#14: Brendan Shanahan, 48.70%
#15: Milt Schmidt, 55.83%
#16: Bobby Clarke, 34.72%
#17: Jari Kurri, 69.94%
#18: Denis Savard, 55.13%
#19: Joe Sakic, 30.82%
#20: Luc Robitaille, 65.38%
#21: Stan Mikita, 48.77%
#22: Mike Bossy, 90.72%
#23: Bob Gainey, 60.65%
#24: Chris Chelios, 81.28%
#25: Joe Nieuwendyk, 46.41%
#26: Peter Stastny, 48.88%
#27: Scott Niedermayer, 49.24%
#28: Steve Larmer, 45.45%
#29: Ken Dryden, 87.58%
#30: Martin Brodeur, 85.26%
#31: Grant Fuhr, 45.52%

List of players wearing #32 is available here: http://www.hockey-reference.com/friv...umber=32&year= and here: http://www.azhockey.com/shirts/shirts32.html


Note: Big thanks go to spiny norman and TheDevilMadeMe for their sources for numbers.

The poll will run for one day.

I have a feeling Quick will win, but I take Claude Lemieux.

I went Hunter over Lemieux because I remeber Lemieux more for wearing 22 than 32, where as Hunter was always 32.

Was tempted to go with Dale Hunter, who was a great player... but Claude Lemieux was easily the best pest to play the game since I started watching hockey. I wonder what he would have done if he were playing in the 70's.

Chose Stumpy (Steve Thomas). While he never won the Cup, he was a great playoff performer and he did score over 400 goals in the regular season.

Steve Thomas was actually much better than I thought he was, he got my vote.

I also feel Lemieux may not have been a good inclusion for this number, even if he won a cup and had some good seasons in Montreal.

Next one should be an easy shutout, aside from the jokers' votes of course...

Probably wouldn't have done much at all, but I imagine playing NHL level hockey would be hard for an early teenage boy.

He won three though, and was an I portent factor.
