HFBoards TOP 100 ranking: Forwards #24

Now that the season and playoffs are over, I thought we'd do an "HFBoards ranking" for each position.

So basically, who (of the following) is the best forward in the NHL? ie. which forward would you want on your team for next year only? (independent of their respective salary)


Vote away.



Ranking so far

1. Ovechkin
2. Malkin
3. Crosby
4. Datsyuk
5. Kovalchuk
6. Iginla
7. Getzlaf
8. Zetterberg
9. Thornton
10. Lecavalier

11. Parise
12. E.Staal
13. M.Richards
14. Nash
15. Heatley
16. Hossa
17. Alfredsson
18. Savard
19. St.Louis
20. Gaborik

21. Spezza
22. Semin
23. Backstrom

Vanek. Why is Sakic on the list? Add Cammileri or Krejci.

All Henrik and Daniel Sedin do is finish 14th and 15th in points. Still they don't get the respect they deserve.

Shane Doan.


This guy is an excellant offensive, defensive and physical foward. The whole package.

He deserves more credit than anyone left of these guys, who most are, only offensive talents and still less talented than Doan.

Patrik Elias. 20th in the league in points (78 points in 77 games vs. 82 points in 82 games for the Sedins). He did this while absolutely carrying the Devil's second line more or less singlehandedly. He is also a fantastic 2 way player. And he scored more playoff points in the last decade than any other player in the league (ahead of Sakic, Forsberg, Lidstrom, and Rafalski in that order).

Add Ribeiro (who has led Dallas in scoring by large margins the last few seasons).

Morrow... The guy does everything. He's a mix between Getzlaf and Smyth, but better defenisvely.

Elias. Vanek is too much of a one trick pony for my taste.

Out of all the great names on that list I'd take Toews on my team any day of the week. He is awesome in every situation and aside from Sakic is the only captain remaining.

i don't think there's any question that, if healthy, havlat is the most complete player left. i've been voting for him since st. louis went off the board. of course, his injury history is a big question, but the next best guy, gagne, has his own concerns in that regard.

I think that's very questionable. Just compare him to Patrik Elias. Havlat had 77 points in 81 games, and Elias had 78 points in 77 games. And Elias has been noted for his two-way play his entire career; this past year, he was one of the Devil's primary penalty killers. And we aren't even getting into questions of durability.

Or perhaps they're not as good as you think they are.
