    Your Greatest Hockey players of all time.

    Who would you say are the greatest hockey players of all time? I love hockey history and watching old games more than new ones sometimes. I believe that the league was much tougher in the original six team era than today's 30 team league. Here is my list......

    Guy Lafleur

    Yvan Cournoyer

    Jean Beliveau

    Steve Yzerman

    Ted Lindsay

    Maurice Richard

    Mario Lemieux

    Phil Esposito

    Bobby Hull

    Marcel Dionne



    Defence

    Bobby Orr

    Larry Robinson

    Paul Coffey

    Doug Harvey

    Nicklas Lidstrom

    Brad Park

    Denis Potvin

    Red Kelly



    Goalies

    Patrick Roy

    Jaques Plante

    Ken Dryden

    Vladislav Tretiak

    Roger Crozier

    Terry Sawchuk

    Tony Esposito

    Well that list is pretty hard to argue...

    Additions IMHO-

    Rod Langway
    He was as gutsy a D as it gets. I cannot count how many times he threw himself in front of the puck. He was one of the people that turned around the Washington Capitals, who had never beaten (or tied) the Canadiens, or ever made the playoffs before he came to the club (I was there for those games in the 80s). He was a class act all the way, and was a great leader. I will never forget when Rod got cut up pretty bad, blood all over the place, went in for like 20-30 stitches, came back the next period and played his heart out continuing make these great plays.

    Ray Borque
    One of the best offensive defensemen, a true legend. Saw him play many times. Norris Trophy five times, and scored 410 goals and 1,169 assists in 1,612 regular-season games. (I didn't memorize that thats a HOF stat).

    Eddie Shore, Toe Blake?
    Old Time Hockey :-) Time to put on the foil coach.

    Mike Gartner
    One of the most consistent players, 15 consec 30 goal seasons and 1,335 total points. Also one of the guys that transformed the Capitals, but stands on his own.

    Mark Messier
    Part of the Oilers dynasty with Gretzky and Fuhr, he definitly has the HOF stats with 1887 pts, and a long outstanding career. Plus he's scary looking like a hockey player should be haha.

    Tretiak (comment)
    Was a surprise within your list of NHLers. But he definitely deserves to be in there. I got to meet him in Washington DC, at a Capitals game, very nice guy and got his autograph (I am a dumbass and can't find it now). Man how the NHL would have changed if he would have had the opportunity to play!

    My biggest influences (I played goalie) were Jim Craig and Grant Fuhr (even though I was a Caps fan, Fuhr was outright amazing). Craig had a crappy NHL career, but had the greatest moments in American Sports History in '80 Olympics and what inspired me to play hockey in the first place.

    Default Greatest coach of all time?

    Scotty Bowman, greatest coach of all time! That one would be hard to argue eh?

    He is like the winningest coach of all time... Habs, Wings, Pens all to the cup.
    9-10 Cups ain't to shabby!

    Nice! Tom Barrasso gettin' some love. His stats weren't the best but the man won 2 cups.

    Great lists everyone!

    A couple random guys that I thought should/could make the list:
    Dale Hunter - a master of the playoffs
    Dave Andreychuk - all time power play goal leader
    Claude Lemieux - another master of the playoffs
    Ed Belfour - one of the first guys with a really cool mask (plus he could stop some rubber too)
    Al MacInnis - one of the hardest shots ever (must be something with the name Al)
    Cam Neely - a shame he had to hang 'em up early

    Hey Sucka

    What about Jim Craig for top American goalies...you need to think in context, not number of games or NHL career though. Yes Vanbiesbrook definitly belongs!


    Yes Barasso was great with the Sabres and the Pens!

    My mistake, I meant to put him as a defenseman. I put him up there cause he was one of my favorites. He's one of those guys that I think that every team should have. You should have your free skating, puck carrier, and then a guy like Jeff. Rugged, gritty, tough, and never afraid to drop the mitts and go. That's why I liked him so much, eventhough he was a Ranger.

    Jim Craig belongs, but as far as NHL wins go, Beezer and Tom are at the top. Jim can go on there though for sure.

    You know what? You're exactly right. Playing with him is a big part of what helped make Leetch as good as he was.
