Koivu doesn't belong on a top 30 list and St. Louis doesn't belong yet.

Hasek, Brodeur, Roy, Sawchuck, among others are all missing.

Where The he!! is Naslund on this list????? geez isn't he like the leading goal Scorer and (i think) point getter of the new decade? Koivu has about the same amount of points that naslud has in 2.5 of the 4 years.

St. Louis is only from last year because the year before he was not a huge force to deal with.

Jagr should be on here as he has been a force and scored more points in one season in the last decade than anyone else

Last decade meaning 2000-2004

Stupid Canadian principles! Koivu? I could put my home team captain as one of the best in a decade too...
What about Bobrov, Salming, Kharlamov, Fetisov, Kurri, Bure, Fedorov?
Oh, sorry, you must have forgotten them...

Hasek wins 6 Vezinas in the 90s, and he has not merited a single inclusion in a 90s top five.

90s:
Lemieux, Jagr, Hasek, Hull, Sakic, in that order.

00s:
Brodeur, Naslund, Iginla, Lidstrom, Forsberg in that order.

I think Stevens deserves a mention in the 90's, but that's probably just me.

if you're gonna add a defenseman, I'd add Bourque or Leetch before Stevens. Maybe even Chelios.

In terms of 90's defensemen I think that Bourque, Leech, Chelios, and argueably MacInnis were at the same level if not better than Stevens. While he was always solid as a rock in the 90s, he never was a top 10 player in the league. If it was a top 10-15 players of the 90s then yeah I can see stevens deserving a spot, but at top 5, I don't think he makes it.

Don't forget Demitra. He is still only 28 and depending where he signs could put up monster numbers.

Last 3 years

Naslund 278pts
Bertuzzi 242pts
Thornton 242pts
Iginla 236pts
Jagr 230pts
Demitra 229

Agree pretty much with all of those except Dave Keon. A very good player and a legit HOFer but he gets in there over Beliveau? Hmmm. Fishy.

And the first post had Cournoyer in there in the 60s. I liked Yvan but he played over two decades and he's more of a late 60s and early to mid 70s guy.

OMG...Demitra is aging at twice the rate of everyone else!! He's going from 28 to 30

END THE LOCKOUT SO DEMITRA CAN PLAY!!

But seriously, Sakic should be Top 5 in both 90's and 00's.

A top 5 is very difficult, and a top 10 would be easier to put out. Players like Fedorov and Bure deserve some respect in the 90s.

As if Koivu is one of the top 5 offensive players of the 2000s He's got a whopping 196 points from the 99-00 season on.
Some of you Habs fans are just...wow.

Note: key word, "some".
