I don't think thats the point of this over who has won something..if it is, then Eric Staals name should be higher then 84 since he won the cup last season. Crosby is pretty much the poster boy of the NHL, guess that makes him more influencial and powerful.

He's influenced people not to be interested or even watch the game of hockey again!!! Something to be very proud of for sure!!!!

How can people follow a sport that changes their format, rules, and TV coverage, year after year? It's enough to turn off the undecided fan for ever!!!

Yeah, he's #1 alright!!! :thumbsdow

Very interesting, so you're telling me guys like Zdeno Chara have a political stroke in the NHL? I wasn't aware, and Darren Dreger? Wow. Crosby being so high is crazy, and I guess other owners have more say as to what goes where then others. A link would be nice so I can read the paragraphs.

By the way, where's Trevor Linden?
