    Default Your Top 5 NHL Players

    Inspired by some recent talk about the best players in the NHL, and the TSN Franchise Faceoff, I just got curious about who you guys think are the top 5 guys in the league. Not from a fantasy standpoint but think players to build your team around. I have a tough time with this I think it would go something like this:

    1. Crosby
    2. Doughty
    3. Toews
    4. Kopitar
    5. Giroux

    5 Honorable Mentions: Malkin, Seguin, Tavares, Stamkos, Bergeron.
    Main Squad: H2H Multicat Points
    10 Team 16 Keepers

    G:3 A:2 +/-:1 PPP:0.5 PIM:0.25 Shot:0.2 Hit:0.2 Block:0.2
    W:3 SV:0.2 GA:-1 SO:3

    I could very well be influenced by their recent performances but Kopitar is just such a treat to watch. So much all around talent. Was a pleasure for me to see him live for the time here in Edmonton this past year.

    He's a hell of a player. All things considered he may just be a top 5 player. Hell, Gretzky said he's #3 behind Crosby and Toews. Maybe he's a bit biased as a former King and he was riding the playoff juice, but still, thats pretty high praise!

    I might take some flak here...

    Crosby
    Toews
    Stamkos
    Rask
    Weber

    I think I would put Doughty #6, just shades behind Weber (almost a coin-flip there)
    7-9 are probably (in no order, pick your own)
    Giroux
    Tavares
    Malkin
    10 for me is Ovechkin, with Seguin knocking on the door...

    I had to make a list of 10 to show how close it was for me

    No right or wrong answer! Aside from maybe not having Crosby as #1 haha, but it's interesting to see everyone's picks.

    I would take any of these elite 1C's over any elite Dman or goalie if I was building a team.
