    Curious who the two people who DIDNT vote mcdavid are.

    Also people are definitely sleeping on Kucherov after not seeing him this season, in my opinion.

    I love how Barkov is always left off these lists and then people still complain when he's called underrated.

    There's no wrong answer.

    Exciting is a subjective thing and each person has a different perspective on what they enjoy watching.

    For me:

    1. McDavid
    2. Matthews
    3. MacKinnon
    4. Kane
    5. Kucherov

    McDavid
    MacKinnon
    Kane
    Kucherov
    Panarin

    In that order. Last year in the play ins I was on the edge of my seat whenever Connor or Kane touched the puck.

    Hmmm. Most exciting is not necessarily the best although there’s a high correlation. The most exciting player I ever watched was Bure.
    For me my list would be guys who are magicians with the puck or can make moves at high speed. I’ve got:

    McDavid
    MacKinnon
    Kane
    Panarin
    Kucherov

    I’d have Marner and Elias Pettersson as honourable mentions.

    I feel some posters dont separate exciting from the best? Theese are mine exciting players:

    McDavid
    Kaprizov
    Wilson
    Marchand
    Panarin

    HM:

    MacKinnon
    Kane

    When I watch the leafs I find Marner more exciting than Matthews. I think Matthews is the better player but it’s just the stickhandling, speed and amount of time with the puck on stick that makes players exciting for me to watch. Also superstars who have some edge/sandpaper to their game.

    I’d go with:
    McDavid
    Mackinnon
    Ovechkin
    Kane
    Draisaitl

    I’d say Marner, Panarin, and Makar could also be in that last spot.

    A healthy Elias Petterssson should be mentioned more.

    I left Kucherov out of my top 5 as a Lightning fan. He has a very subtle game, but he can turn opportunities into goals in the blink of an eye.

    McDavid
    Matthews
    Kane
    MacKinnon
    Makar

    These guys all have wow-factor physical gifts or skills, and you notice them on every shift.

    Im surprised Rantanen doesn't have more votes. Whenever watched Aves games he really stands out in an exciting way.

    Indeed.
    Ehlers also deserves mentions here, definitely. A lot more exciting than someone like Laine for example.

    Cale Makar is second only to McDavid in my opinion.

    McDavid
    Makar
    Mackinnon
    Panarin
    Kane

    Kucherov is not that exciting. He's more like a lurking shark who perfectly executes three plays in a game and doesn't create anything for 55 minutes.

    Tom Wilson is the most exciting. As a protest of him being excluded I voted 'other' as my only vote.

    His shot is elite, but I agree.
    Surprised Marner has so few votes, because he can make you stand up.
    Matthews has carried the puck into the zone a lot though.

    I picked him.
    I picked McDavid, but I like Crosby more, due to the unusual plays he can make.
    The hand-eye today, was astounding.

    HM to Crosby/Drai/Marner
