The Best Offensive Foward Group In The NHL - #1.

I know, I know, there are probably about 5 of these on the Polls main page as it is, yet none of them really do the job right. Everyone (myself included) seems to vastly interested in the general opinion of the best foward group at this date and time.

So here it is, I have listed the top 13 teams I have seen people suggesting, and based upon their production so far this year.

This poll is who do you think is the most dangerous offensive group is in the league..At this time AND based upon potential.

If I put the wrong player on your team or something, just let me know I'll edit it,

Here are the top 10 offensive players on each team:

Pittsburgh Pengiuns:
Crosby, Malkin, Staal, Sykora, Fedotenko, Whitney, Gonchar, Satan, Kennedy

Boston Bruins:
Savard, Lucic, Bergeron, Krejci, Kessel, Ryder, Sturm, Chara, Wideman, Wheeler

Philadelphia Flyers:
Richards, Carter, Gagne, Briere, Lupul, Hartnell, Timmonen, Knuble, Coburn, Upshall

Washington Capitals:
Ovechkin, Backstrom, Semin, Nylander, Green, Kozlov, Laich, Fleischmann, Fedorov, Poti

Montreal Canadiens:
Kovalev, Koivu, Tanguay, Plekanec, Markov, A. Kostitsyn, S. Kostitsyn, Lang, Higgins, Latendresse

Chicago Blackhawks:
Kane, Toews, Sharp, Havlat, Campbell, Keith, Versteeg, Ladd, Bolland, Byfuglien

Staal, Williams, Cullen, Brind'Amour, Whitney, Ruutu, Samsonov, Corvo, Pitkanen, Seidenberg,

Ottawa Senators:

Why are defensemen included in the listing of names? They are not apart of the 'forward group'.

Lol thats true, I guess I meant "offensive corp" so like, most prominent members of the offense?

How can you talk an offence for Detroit or SJ and not mention Lidstrom and Boyle..Thats what I'm getting at.

San Joses got alot of depth.

Most of thei guys can play a great 2-way game while scoring a high amount of goals.

Ill take the Sharks by a hair over the Wings

Red Wings have a much better power play and the same amount of goals 5 on 5 as San Jose, with one less game... and things have not been "clicking" yet.

Potential-wise, especially, no one is even close to the Wings in depth.

Canucks are 8th in goals scored per game, one of 8 teams averaging over 3 goals a game this season. If you want to complain about teams involved in this discussion bring up Ottawa and the Rangers they are 28th and 29th in goals scored per game this season respectively.

I went with San Jose.

Agreed, beyond the top 3, Ottawa is horrible offensively.

Canucks have a better goals per game average than the Habs. I don't think the Canucks are better offensively than the Habs when the Canadiens are healthy but I wouldn't say the Habs are as good as the Sharks offensively.

Pittsburgh, Malkin and Crosby alone make the difference.

The Ottawa group is very similar to the one that led the league in scoring last year. I know it's always tempting to go with what they have done lately, as is typical with HFboards, but they are still a very potent forward group, regardless of their current struggles.

They have 3 top 10 offensive fowards, a defenceman in the top 5 scoring and 2 fowards when they arent stuck in a superslump with the ability to put up some good numbers.
