I got a feeling he's not gonna win this sakic will probably take it but I voted anyway!
I can't believe Sakic is winning, he would have been my 4th choice.
It's mostly kids who haven't seen Trotts play. Doesn't mean much.
Exactly.. The fact that he played before a good chunk of posters were born is hurting him.
Those top four though...have top be among the strongest for any number.
Trottier Yzerman Robinson Sakic
Each all time greats.
Did my duty as an Islander fan and voted. And yes I did see him play - his entire career.
my top 4 - Trotts, Robinson, Stevie Y, Sakic
Scandalous !!! Saw his whole career too and he could do it all, score, set-up, draw faceoffs, play physical
All time favorite athlete for me
I voted for Butch!
Howie posts here.
Me too. Saw his whole career. Plus Pitt and coaching in Colo. The greatest all around player to ever play the game. If he played in Toronto, Montreal or NYC he has a statue of him in front of the arena.
Sakic and Yzerman wore "19" because of him.
Trotts should get extra credit for this, no?
this is funnier every time I see it.
I've been around since the beginning as well. As a Croatian, I have always loved Sakic. However, He doesn't even come close the Trottier. 4 consecutive Stanley Cups. 19 straight playoff wins. Most likely, the best two way center of all time.
Side note: I don't think calling someone a tit-****er is an insult. I wouldn't take it as such.
Really not fair since the majority of the people who post on these boards weren't born or were too young to remember Bryan.
But it's ironic that it's Sakic, because Sakic chose #19 for the same reason Yzerman did, they both idolized Trotts.
