5. Pavel Datsyuk
6. Ryan Getzlaf
7. Daniel Sedin
8. Brad Richards
9. Henrik Zetterberg
10. Evgeni Malkin

How accurately do you guys think this represents the current list of top 10 playmakers?
It excludes Nicklas Backstrom, so it doesn't represent the top playmakers in the NHL now. I'm sorry, Brad Richards doesn't belong in the conversation.

If we are talking about pedigree and consistency over the last few years, order and even the list would change depending on what time frame is taken into consideration.
I would't have MSL there but that's just me. And Giroux would take his place.

Of course it matters. People go on production and if Giroux had players like Pavelski on his line he'd have a damn sight more assists than even now.

I wanted to keep this all forwards. You could slip Karlsson in otherwise.
If you're going to allow Karlsson to slip in, better let Keith in too since he has more assists than Karlsson and is currently 4th in the league behind only Sid, Jumbo and Backstrom.

yeah, no. This isnt about this season only, as Karlsson does it every year on the Sens of all teams.

I can just imagine EK on the Hawks.... wow!

I'd say that is fair.

I think this would be a better list; players so far this decade sorted by APG. (in terms of who is top ten... not order.)
I agree it's useful. But JT always gets knocked in these things for playing through way more injuries than many of his peers on that list. There's been a few games where it looked like his shoulder was duct taped to his side just so he could play.

I'd argue Thornton is a better playmaker than Crosby. Jumbo Joe is the definition of play making.

Crosby is slightly better, he is just thought of less of a passer because he actually scores goals

If only Jumbo shot more, if he could score those goals he could compete for the Art Ross again.


Plus, I want to see him score a hat trick and possibly that fourth goal.....

If he shot more he probably would have more goals but and equal amount less assists

It could go both ways, I've seen Jumbo pass an awesome opportunity where if he shot.. it could've gone on in.

Too many times has it happened, too much to keep count.


just shoot joe!

Fair enough but if he did develop a shoot more style his assist total would take a tumble(maybe he would have more points overall and it wouldn't be an equal amount of assists lost but he would have less) and not put him in a race with Crosby for most assists

As I said Thornton is a great passer but Crosby is better. It's sort of like Gretzky and how nobody referred to him as a goal scorer, although he usually was one of the top goal scorers many years in the league

Depends what you mean, they are all better players who are playmakers but Backstrom has some of the best pure playmaking skills in the league for sure.

Lol @ Henrik 6th in points on that list despite just 54 goals.

Even then, Krejci and Duchene aren't better than Backstrom. Tavares is, but not in the playmaking department.
