A bit curious tough. How did you select these players?

The only answer on this is Orr. I'm old enough to have seen all of these guys play many times.

I decided to start with the players based on the teams that they played prominently on and going in alphabetical order. So the players from that list are from Anaheim to Buffalo. I then used hockey-reference.com to sort the players based on games played. Here is the one that I used for the Boston players.

I then looked at the names that stood out to me and put in a few players that I liked. I only started to really follow hockey in 96-97, so there are a whole bunch of players that I am not familiar with. I expect to see people mention that I didn't put so-and-so player on the list, but I think this list is sufficient enough to get the majority of the favourite players, especially since the majority of posters are quite young too.

Bourque. I am too young to have watched Orr play, but I was a big fan of Ray Bourque as a kid because I played defense when I first began playing hockey.

Never saw Orr play, never understood the love for Selanne, hate the Sabres

I went Neely over Bourque.

Neely was always fun to watch.

Being a Bruins fan, a lot of my favorite players of all time are in this poll. I give the edge to Bergeron though because I've got to watch him ever since he came into the NHL as an 18 year old second rounder, and he epitomizes everything that I think a pro athlete should be. Team-first, committed to defense as much as offense, humble and charitable, persevered through very difficult challenges, and is ultimately a winner at every level. I can't believe he's only 27. Class act.

Selänne very closely followed by Bourque and then Hasek.

I love Selanne, Bergeron, and Chara, and wasn't alive during the Orr era, but had to vote Orr
