These lists are obviously very subjective and there's never going to be a list that can be 100% agreed upon. I think for the most part, it's a solid list. I'd have Malkin a lot higher than 13 and I'd also have Couturier in the top 20 as well.

Couturier is definitely missing there.

Tavares ranked way too high.

Pick one: 26 and Under Team or 27 and Older Team?

<26yo: McDavid, MacKinnon, Barkov, Matthews, Scheifele, Point, Aho, Eichel, Monahan, Pettersson
>27yo: Crosby, Tavares, Bergeron, Stamkos, Seguin, O'Reilly, Malkin, Kuznetsov, Couture, Backstrom



I would take under 26 all day.

Long term (of course, as these players are going to continue to develop and have more years left in their careers) or "in the moment" as well?

Long term under 26 for sure.

In the moment, I give the advantage to the older guys. They are vets and know what it takes to win. All but 3 have a Stanley Cup.

Both teams in their prime would be fun to watch.

He does get talked about as one of the best centres in the league.


He does now. But he didnt when he first was. Same thing happened with Kopitar back before the King's short period of dominance.
