    We have a lot decades in Hockey so i choose that question , since the last "big Lockout" from 2004/05 who was the best Left Wing since 2005.
    Ovechkin as LW here.

    My Top 10 LW.
    1.Alexander Ovechkin , we all know why, one of the best Goal Scorer in NHL History. Now SC winner, and still the best goal scorer in the NHL (active).

    2.Ilya Kovalchuk, Stickhandling-Game changer, more i haven't to say.

    3.D.Sedin, With his brother the best twins Duo ever in the NHL, his passing abilities a great and 1 Time Art Ross Winner.

    4.Thomas Vanek, Nr.35 in points in NHL History as a LW (for now), poor him he played without a star on his site,( only with Tavares 2014 for 48 GP) he was "The Sabres Offens" for 5 Years, after Briere and Dury are gone. Deflection monster and make player better on his site. 2009 he lead the league in PPG.

    5.Rick Nash, i liked his style to play that game, he was always good in the PK, good sniper one Time "Maurice Richard" winner. It is sad that he end his career now really quiet a great player and a Olympic Gold Winner.

    6.Dany Heatley, his best days were after 04/05 with 2 times 100+ Points in a season.

    7.Patrick Sharp, a underrated player i think and was important 3 times for the Blackhawks to win the Cup.

    8.Zach Parise, with the devils he was really great and a leader always.

    9.Michael Camalleri, 2 Times 80+ Points, a "racer" on the ice create a lot chances always.

    10.Ray Whitney, he played "long" time before too, but he has 6 times in a row 50+ Points 2 times 70+ and one tiem 80+ after 2005 , sohe was a Playmaker.

    If it were "...since 2010" he'd be included for sure.

    Benn has gotta be there over at least Cammeleri and Whitney, maybe he has less games played but the guy has an Art Ross and certainly a much higher peak

    I take Sedin over Kovalchuk if we’re counting their entire careers.

    Also LW has to be the weakest position in the modern NHL era.

    Yep, Sedin has to make it over Kovy. I'm putting Benn over Kovalchuk too.

    i place them there because the prime time or best seasons from all close after 2005-2009/10 (Ovechkin is non stop Prime player :) ) all of them in my top 10 List are in the top 100 all time left Wings Goal scorer, or Points. Of Course Benn would be inclouded from 2010 or 2011 on.that is what i mean with, decade, NHL has in 100 Years so many good players so i think is never "right" for all.

    Buit u can write down u list , would be curious how other ones see that.

    Taylor Hall won the Hart Trophy. You would think he could crack that list.

    here we talk about 13 years.
    Hall break ther first time the 30 Goal mark last year.
    Before he had "only" one 80 point season than 65 was the best.
    No it is not enough now. When it would be a list from 2012 or 2014 on yes, not since 2005.

    Hall has played 8 years since 2005. He's finished top ten in points 3 times and won a Hart Trophy.


    That easily trumps a guy like Cammalleri that has zero top ten scoring finishes in double that time.

    than put him in your list, i think a list like that is always Subjective and the NHL is the best league in the World, so there are the best Player in der World.
    It is impossible to find a really "good" list for all.
    Especcially when u Write the top 10. A Top 20 List is a bit easier and still not enough.

    Nash was/is a RW
    He did play some LW but I wouldn’t call him a LW

    It makes much more sense to rank players that have been retired for 5 years than current players.

    Rick Nash can sign retirement papers and still come back, look at Kovalchuk, once you sign these papers you are completely done from returning. No point having this procedure
