HFBoards Top 30 Centers - #5

Going into the 2012-2013 season, lets make a HFBoards list of the top 30 centers in the NHL. Try not to take potential or the future into consideration. You can however, take into consideration the possible improvement/regressing players might've done this off-season if you're sure about it.

Also, name your player you want to add for the next poll.


#1 - Sidney Crosby His concussion problems seems to be in the past. Still the best center (and player) in the world.
#2 - Evgeni Malkin Clear number 2. His last season was, again, proof of how dominating he can be offensively.
#3 - Steven Stamkos The best goal scorer in the game right now. Had astonishing 60 goals last season.
#4 - Claude Giroux Had a serious breakout year last season. Doesnt matter if its stickhandling, passing or scoring, he can do it all.

Datsyuk, then Kopitar.

Tavares will be #5 (at least) in the net couple of years though.

Datsyuk for now ... H. Sedin, Tavares, Kopitar, Toews, and Backstrom in some order round out the top 10.

Based on previous poll results and this one i think its safe to say that Datsyuk will win it.

Tavares should win this. Datsyuk's age will cause him to decline more and more and you never know when that huge step down comes...It could be next year or it could wait until he's 40. I'd pick Tavares. He's young and is almost a PPG player (just 1 point shy of PPG) on a lottery team. He's got amazing vision and he can make players play better around him. Then again, the aging Datsyuk is purely speculation on my part however Tavares constantly improving at such a young age is a fact that can't be ignored. If Datsyuk wins this, I wont be surprised as it does say "top 30 Centers for the 2012-2013 Season" however I would be surprised if Tavares wasn't #6 and if by next year, he wasn't in the top 5.

There could really be 3 or 4 correct answers to this, but I ended up voting for Kopitar.

Went Toews, though I completely missed Datsyuk was an option.

Datsyuk, Sedin, Toews (very close between him and Henrik imo), Tavares, Kopitar (very close between him and John imo).

After that it starts getting more complicated.

While I don't think he belongs at the number 5 spot, to be fair, this was probably Spezza's 4th best season. He doesn't need to prove anything.
