Hfboards top 25 under 25 list : #24

Hi,

We will use the same rules as ESPN did for their top 25 so we can compare when we're done. Also, I should specify that the poll is for who is the better player right now, and not who will be better in the future. Here's why player like Giroux and Landeskog are not included in the poll :

Quote:
A few other ground rules: As the title of the ranking indicates, players 25 or over -- and those turning 25 before Feb. 1 -- are inelligble for this list. That removes several of the list's previous top names -- including Sidney Crosby, Nicklas Backstrom and Claude Giroux. Also, by looking for an established track record of success rather than future potential, you won't find any of the league's talented 2011-12 rookies on this list. That even includes the NHL's reigning rookie of the year Gabriel Landeskog of the Colorado Avalanche and Edmonton's Ryan Nugent-Hopkins[...]
#1 : Steven Stamkos (83.26%)
#2 : John Tavares (40.09%)
#3 : Jonathan Toews (49.25%)
#4 : Erik Karlsson (54.49%)
#5 : Drew Doughty (43.21%)
#6 : Alex Pietrangelo (80.00%)
#7 : Patrick Kane (56.94%)
#8 : Jordan Eberle (33.11%)
#9 : Jamie Benn (23.08%)
#10 : Tyler Seguin (29.93%)
#11 : Taylor Hall ( 27.95% )
#12 : Oliver Ekman-Larsson (23.33%)
#13 : Ryan McDonagh (21.39%)
#14 : Logan Couture (21.70%)
#15 : Jordan Staal (25.81%)
#16 : Milan Lucic (31.62%)
#17 : Tyler Myers (34.21%)
#18 : Jeff Skinner (25.97%)
#19 : PK Subban (38.89%)
#20 : Matt Duchene (41.00%)
#21 : Evander Kane (30.43%)
#22 : Max Pacioretty (41.67%)
#23 : Victor Hedman (20.00%)
#24 :

Also, feel free to propose players who you think deserve to be nominated

This is hard, you could make a really strong argument for 7-8 of these guys. I'll go with O'Reilly just because I think he had the most impressive season last year out of all these guys, and he's my favourite player left on the list.

Two guys on this list have been shutdown defensemen on a playoff team. Alzner's the better of the two.

What's wrong with Hall at #11? Post-lockout the only players who produced at the rate Hall did last year at his age are Crosby, Malkin, Ovechkin, Stamkos, Kane, Kopitar and Bergeron. He had an excellent season and to me seems pretty well poised for a breakout PPG year.
