    Only #1 and #4 on the list have more MVPs than Shore. Should have gone ages ago.

    Bobby Clarke has 3 Harts, a Selke, and 2 Cups all in the expansion era and he can't get into the top 25? What a joke.

    To be fair, the title states "best" and not greatest, meaning votes on ability and talent rather than achievements are justified

    It went off the rails at #5. Jagr is not the 5th best player of all time; probably not even top 10 (I'd have Hull, Beliveau, Richard, Harvey and Crosby ahead of him, at the least). Meanwhile, Morenz and Shore aren't even on the list yet.

    What?! Jagr is clearly a good choice for number 5. 2nd in all time Points, 3rd in all time goals so he's got the durability and the longevity. 5 Art Ross trophies so he's got a better peak than almost anybody. Keep in mind that this was a time when the League had probably the highest top talent level ever. Lost a few Hart trophies because he wasn't likeable in his younger days according to some. Won the cup twice and went to the finals another time. 5th all time in playoff Points, the only non 80s Oiler player to score over 200 playoff Points. So he's got the playoff resume.

    Never led the League in goals, but that was because he was up against several of the best goal scorers of all time like Selanne, Bure and Lemieux. Has a legendary personal Life as well by growing one of the best mullets ever, developing a gambling addiction that led him into severe Money troubles and in his later years he was still picking up hot bikini models half his age. Lets see Crosby and Company compete with that!

    Clicked Schmidt instead of Morenz by accident. This list is pretty strange.

    I should probably know better than to criticize Jagr in front a guy named “mulletman”.

    McDavid is leading by one vote over Shore. May need a runoff here.

    My god, I would've taken a healthy Bure over anyone past 66 and 99.

    Well I mean he is not wrong, Jagr as 5th is actually pretty reasonable, Crosby on the other hand is a glorified dime a dozen superstar with 2 Art Ross and some team success, no all-time great peak either of course. The fact that he is 6th is pretty alarming but I suppose there are even more problematic things with this list.

    But in that case Forsberg should be top 10 easily so people don’t seem to understand what ”best” means.

    And Sakic being ahead of Forsberg is the biggest joke on the list considering the title. Here’s how the people who actually know look at it: https://hfboards.mandatory.com/threads/forsberg-vs-sakic.2561279/#post-151370533

    Yep, Forsberg in a landslide over Sakic.

    Well he's probably the only one a good portion of posters have ever seen play.
