    i'm gonna include only players who had their PEAK during the 90s, and i'm gonna ignore the rule that they've had to retire before 2000 because that's a stupid idea for a topic. For players that have played during the 80s and 90s and retired prior to 2000, MOST of them have had their peak during the 80s, so those players would be considered 80s players. It's also stupid because then the two unquestionable answers are Gretzky and lemieux.



    jagr
    forsberg
    fedorov


    those are the 3 best. You can talk about the lindroses and the sakics of the world as well.

    Jagr best offensive. Hasek best defensive. Both by healthy margins.

    Bure should be mentioned, as right around 2000 his career pretty much went sour, capitulating with the injury

    Sorry but that is the worst list I have ever seen in my life.... did you even watch hockey in the 1990s? Joel Otto? Good if not great third line player, but there is no way in hell he cracks the top 50 players of the 1990s.

    Plus I agree with the others with the 2000 rule being stupid.

    Roenick, Amonte, Weight, Messier, Gretzky, Lemieux, Leech, Zubov, Modano, Jagr, Sakic, Lidstrom, Bourque, Bure, Fedorov, Lindros, LeClair, Sundin, Forsberg, Fleury, Niewendyk (never could spell his name), Hasek, Roy, Brodeur, Turgeon, Linden, Richter, Lemieux (Claude), Stevens, Niedermayer, Lehtinen, Yzerman, Shanahan.

    If you want to include their entire career you could make room for the Lafleurs to the Makarovs also

    I don't know whether you mean 1980 - 1990 or 1990 - 2000. But regardless, it is hard not to mention Ray Bourque.

    From 1980 - 2000, he was a machine.

    I'm shocked nobody has mentioned Ed Belfour so far, 4 Jennings, 2 Vezinas, 1 Stanley Cup, a Calder Trophy,

    or Chris Chelios, 3 Norris Trophies, a Stanley Cup

    or Scott Stevens.

    or Dale Hawerchuk.

    or Peter Stastny.

    Sergei Fedorov was the best two-way player of the 1990's. How many 60 goal scorers have won a Selke?

    Jagr was also MVP runner-up twice, I believe.

    Jagr wasnt head and shoulders above everyone. Bure, Lemieux and Hull were better goal scorers, Lindross was a lot more dominant phisically, Gretzky and Lemieux were better in playmaking and Yzerman, Sakic, Lemieux-s (claude and mario) were better playoff performers too.

    Winning 5 scoring titles puts you in an elite class. Ahead of Bure, Hull, Lindros, Yzerman. Sakic and Claude.

    lol, very true. I didn't even look into it originally, but Fedorov has indeed never scored 60 goals...

    I disagree actually, he was dynamite up until the latter half of his (very short) stint with the rangers. In 2001 he had 59 goals, in 2002 upon his trade to the blueshirts he was on fire, with something like 12 goals and 20 pts in 20 games.

    The next season with the Rags (2002-03) was when it all went wrong, with the re-injuring of the knee and all. Even then he was playing great up til the injury - I seem to remember he was averaging a goal a game up until that point.

    Sorry to nit-pick :)
