The 8th Annual Sun Media Hockey Poll (Players ranked by categories)

Opinions...

Quote:
From water coolers to pub tables to hockey stands, debates rage -- arguments over hockey's great questions. Wagers are often made. Wait no more hockey fans. Hockey writers from across the Sun Media chain have polled more than 50 players, scouts, coaches, executives and media members on 25 of the most critical questions and compiled the results. Our annual survey may not solve every bet, but it's a pretty definitive way of determining what the hockey experts have to say on the topic. Here goes:

I laughed out loud when I saw Hatcher on the slowest skater list. He was always painful to watch skate. Interested to see that Bouwmeester got votes for both most overrated and most underrated. In my opinion, I think Johan Franzen doesn't get nearly the respect he deserves. I think Carts wrister will get more and more respect as time passes, but that is some pretty elite company at the top of the list. Disappointed to not even see a vote for Philly in the best city list - have to disagree there.

New York is the best hockey city? Really? I could see Toronto or Montreal but New York? Come on.

Chicago has no business on that list. Sure they are enjoying a good season now, but look at the last 5 years. Philly Buffalo and Minnesota are obvious omissions from that list.

That is probably more of a "great restaurant city" vote more so than anything hockey related.

Carter will get more than 1 vote for best wrist shot next year.

How is Joe Thornton overrated?

The best hockey city list is crazy. Vancouver belongs in the bottom third. A Nashville player probably voted for Nashville.

Interesting that this list was compiled from talking to people directly involved in the NHL.... I disagree with so many of those choices.

Do people really see Hartnell as dirty? He's feisty and chippy when there's a scrum and along the boards, but dirty? There are about a hundred players dirtier than him, including star players *AHEM*Kovalev*AHEM*.
