Discussion in 'The History of Hockey' started by joe_shannon_1983*, Mar 21, 2007.
Who was the greatest winger of all-time?
Discussion begins and ends with Darcy Tucker.
Discussion SHOULD begin and end with Gordon Howe.
Howe and why is Havlat on this list?
Rocket Richard. He was the only Habs I always respect.
Why is there havlat? Where is jagr?
You actually think Howe is better than Tucker?
My vote goes for other and Brett Hull.
Theo Fleury was the best winger that was also a hardcore druggie
id say gordie howe has to be the best winger of all time
Bobby Hull or Richard.
I voted Hull because I had to vote for one so... I like the Hawks better than the Habs . And yes, kind of ******ed that Havlat is on that list .... especially if Jagr is not. lol
I voted for Hull, because my Dad isn't on HFBoards and Bobby Hull is his all-time favorite
Plus, representin' my Jets, as always
Voted Howe. I believe he's the greatest forward of all-time. No player has been as dominate as Howe was for a long period of time. Howe could do everything at an elite level. Richard and Hull are just beloew Howe's level and then you have Bossy and Lindsay below their level. Between those four players you have Guy Lafelur.
Instead of putting Havlat their Jagr sould have been included. He's not at the same level as Howe, Hull or Richard but he is at the same level as Lindsay and Bossy.
I voted for Bossy but if your nickname is "Mr. Hockey" you must have done something right.
That actually works in two ways...
Jagr should be on this list
glad somebody said it. It is quite ridiculous that he isn't.
Howe. End of story.
Haha, I didn't even think of that.
It should be Howe without question, IMO.
Meh, having options other than Howe is moderatly ridiculous...
you can make a strong case for Jagr being the betetr offensive player though, as I proved in another thread.
Number of times Jagr led the league in goals - 0
Number of times Jagr was in the top five in the league with goals - 6
Number of times Howe led the League in goals - 5
Number of times Howe was in the top five with goals - 14
Number of Art Ross' Jagr won - 5
Number of Art Ross' Howe won - 6
Number of Times Jagr finished in the top five in points - 7
Number of Times Howe finished in the top five in points - 20
I can't see how anyone could make a strong case that Jagr was the same or better than Howe offensively.
Separate names with a comma.
