What do you think of this list? I've got some issues with it. For starters Jagr is placed too low and probably Crosby and Messier also.

Did you hear about the retired proctologist? He spent 40 years saying "what's a place like this doing in a girl like you?"

I opened it and seen Modando on the list at 25. Closed the article with no interest in it, what so ever, from that point forward.

I have bigger objection to Jagr at only 19 and Crosby at only 15. Messier is certainly a top ten but at ten may be too low. When you talk about complete players/best all around Messier is certainly a name that quickly comes to mind.

Wow, terrible list.

Ovechkin in the teens, and Mike Bossy ahead of him at 12?!?
Jagr behind them both?!?
Guy Lafleur ahead of all three of those guys?!?
Bobby Hull ahead of them?

I mean, I'm not even going to comment on putting in the old timer hockey players from a totally different era in there between the modern era greats - I've never agreed with doing that, and I don't think it's fair to either. And putting in the goalies on the list is tough as hell.

But you can't have Bobby Hull ahead of Jagr, Ovechkin, and Crosby.
You just can't.

Hey Slozo! Love ya buddy, but have to disagree on this. Bossy was as pure a goal scorer as there ever was. A sight to behold! 10ish seasons makes his scoring prowess legit. 35 years later his points per game are still unmatched; not Wayne, not Alex, not even Mario touch him in that department.

Having said that, I'm not sure how old that list is and I think that Ovechkin will pass most of them in goals by the time his career is over. He has a solid chance of passing Wayne so he'll likely settle comfortably in within the top 5 best players of all time - probably ahead of Crosby.

Love to see where McDavid ends up on this list in 15 years!

Mike Modano was a great player, but no way is he one of the top 25 players of all time! And Martin Brodeur at #8?? Itís hard to argue against his stats, and he has the Cups to go along with them as well, but there is no way he is the 8th best player of all time! And all those goaltenders on the list, but no Domink Hasek? IMO Hasek & Roy are the best 2 goaltenders of all time. I always say that if itís game 7 of the SCF, I want Patrick Roy in my crease. But Domink Hasek for a stretch of 6 or 7 years in the 90s was the best goaltending i have ever saw!

Finally, while I donít agree with much from this particular list, I will say that it is impossible to put together a list like this which crosses generations. How can anyone really know how, for example, Howie Morenz & Sidney Crosby compare? I agree with, I think it might of been one of the guys from the Overdrive podcast but not sure. That any least really should be divided into two groups. The modern era, and pre expansion.
