I'd argue that Rask, Hellebuyck Binnington, Bishop and maybeGibson are better goalies. And that Mark Stone is better than Stamkos.

But solid team overall.

I’d say Panarin is probably ahead of Draisaitl and Ovechkin. Mcdavid, and Mackinnon are way ahead of Crosby at this point. Hellebuyck, Rask and Bishop over Price, Marner or Stone over Stamkos. Nonetheless a pretty solid list.

This list is missing Eichel. I mean come on? Where talking top 10 in scoring best on his team by far, carries a line, plays every situation. Logs 3rd most icetime in forwards

Some debate for 4C. Stone over Stamkos.

Hughes isn't the third best LD. Neither is Karlsson for RD.

And Hellebuyck-Rask.

Don't disrespect Crosby like that. Still the overall best player in the league. Going into one playoff series and you had to choose Crosby or McDavid for this one series and can't keep either afterward who would u choose? Crosby

Scheifle put a post out that said he believes that Eichel is the MVP in the league, said hes more valuable to his team than MacKinnon...McDavid Leon. He zaid he watches his game all the time because of his offensive and defensive force.

That's one man's opinion, I didn't know that everyone shared a brain with Marc Sheifle

I'd go with vasi and rask. I think they're the most consistent at the least consistent position in the game.

I think his opinion would defiently be echoed through the NHL. + Last time I checked I haven't played in the NHL or played against Eichel. Not many on this site probably have

why is he the face of the NHL? hes also the only person out of the hundreds of players in the nhl who have made those comments, lets not forget the hart trophy goes to the person most valuable to his team, and clearly he is the most valuable to his team cause buffalo sucks, if im not mistaken the hart trophy has never gone to a non playoff player, even so there are more guys deserving of it

Price is the best goalie in hockey. His defence has been terrible for years and his offence can't give him goal support. Swap him with vasi or rask in Boston and Tampa and they would struggle much more in MTL than he has

Slavin on LD. RD isn't easy because there's so many options but I'd go with Ellis. Hamilton and Spurgeon are close ones.

The top4 is a lock but after that, debatable.

Best player overall right now? That take is just as egregious as my “way better” take. Panarin and Mackinnon are way ahead of Crosby, who’d I’d even argue isn’t even much better than Mcdavid 5 on 5. A year ago? Yes, no doubt but Crosby’s metrics have fell too much to discount his offensive ability.

Hamilton and Doughty are way ahead of Elli, McAvoy is also better and c'mon sturgeon isn't even in the conversation. Ryan Suter and Krug are better than slavin

Talk metrics all you want, watch the guy play. Does McDavid have a ridiculous amount of skill? definitely. He may end up having a better career than Crosby, but today Crosby is better and Crosby was ahead of him when he was at that age (Had a cup, art ross', Rocket Richard etc)
