    Including goalies, d-men and forwards.
    According to NHL.com, he's not, and it made me curious about your opinion.

    He is TOP10 C for me too. Easy YES.

    Most underrated player in the league with Giroux for me.

    He's still one of the best passers in the game makes sublime plays with the puck. I'd say he is.

    I can’t imagine that he’s not at least in the top 50, all skaters included.

    Getzlaf was and may still be in the top 50 in the league but he is not any longer a top 20 or 30 player. Great player but is not what he use to be.

    Edit: Changed my vote. Getzlaf had a monster year last season. He's still a top 50 player.

    His 82 game consistency isn't what it once was, but when he's on he's among the most dominant players in the NHL. Still a top 10 C for me, and definitely top 50 in the NHL.

    He was 12th in the league in Points per game last year, with Perry as an anchor on his line. (even the year before he was a PPG)…. hes a good player in all 3 zones... still controls the game pretty well... not sure where your getting the idea hes not the same player he once was.... Perry/kesler have dropped off sure... but Getzlaf is still a dominant force.... and the emergence of guys like Rakell and potential of Kase/Terry on his wing, I wont be shocked if he is top 10 in PPG again this year.

    He def should be in everyones top 50 list.... and prob in the 20-35 range somewhere.

    He scored 61 points in 56 games last season... 7th in the league in points per game the last two seasons. Im not a Ducks fan but watch them probably 40-50 games a season and Getzlaf is still a beast. When he is on his game he is basically unplayable.

    And that’s why I take the NHL lists with a grain of salt. He’s for sure a top 50.

    He's 33 and still dominant a lot of the time. He's a top 15 center. The list is certainly far off base

    Not a huge fan of centers who can’t score goals but he is a downright elite playmaker

    Given the package of his playmaking, defense, and forechecking, he's still a force as a top line center and has been for years. He's comfortably in the top 50 players. Not barely. If this was a fantasy mock draft it might be a different question because his defensive contributions don't contribute to fantasy stats.

    He is Pretty good defensively yes. But he is such a poor individual shot generator that I have to dock him some.

    Absolutely. He's still an elite center and arguably top 10

    I mean as far as playmaking goes, like pure creative playmaking, there's few players at any position on his level.

    For me he is. Maybe somewhere around 30-40 but he's still top 50 to me.

    Easily. He had 61 points in 56 games last year and 73 in 74 the year before. Not too many other players have been over a point per game the past 2 seasons combined. Plus if you watch him play it's pretty obvious he's still elite.

    50 assists in 56 games. There are maybe 3 or 4 other players in the league capable of that right now.
