    The poll only gives five options, which is why I put "other" there as I was thinking of Richard and Hull too.

    as a former goalie i would vote for Jacques Plante but since it's not an option i will vote for Gretzky who was very important in promoting the sport and NHL for years, and still is probably the widest known hockey player in the world

    the best in term of stats is like you know WG but if I had to choose I would pick Maurice "rocket" Richard this guy was able to do anything, fighting,scoring passing etc.

    Mark Messier has got to be mentioned. He's a great ambassador for the sport as well.

    I seen all these guys play, and while they were all great, Robert Gordon Orr was the best. He could do it all in my books.

    Richard, Howe, Gretzky. You don't get Gretzky if you never had Howe or Richard. Howe could skate pretty well for a guy pushing 70. [​IMG]How will Gretzky skate at 70?

    time. He has a MVP, His name is on the cup, he has a gold
    metal, and he took a no talent Sabres team to the finals. Oh,
    one more thing, NO GOAL!!!! [​IMG]
