Yeah, i'm really on the edge of my seat watching him play 4th line minutes alongside Nathan Gerbe
Where the heck is Cole Caufield? And then you want people to take HF seriously
These are the 5
Surprised Crosby isn't getting more votes, he's a robot on ice
McDavid, Matthews, MacKinnon, Makar, Panarin. HM to Kane and Marner.
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.
anyone who does not have Panarin in the top 5 simply does not watch him play
OV imo should still be near the top of most people's lists. who the hell doesn't find his game exciting?
Marner is way more exciting than Matthews
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.
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:
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:
Laines shot - if he gets back to his former self
Aho - smallish terrier who plays a Datsyukian game
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:
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.
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.
Yeah agree and Nikolaj Ehlers should be mentioned... it was exciting players to watch right?
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.
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.
Crosby Mack, McJesus, Patty Kane and I like Q Hughes.
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.
Mcdavid, Mack, Kane, Ovi, Panarin
HM to Crosby/Drai/Marner
