Notable exclusions:

Mark Recchi - 12th in all time scoring
Joe Thornton - 992 assists
Doug Gilmour - 18th in all time scoring
Dale Hawerchuk - 19th in all time scoring, 13th in PPG

Of the current NHL players: Jagr, Ovechkin, Crosby, Toews, Kane and Keith

PPG:

Patrick Kane: 1.00
Evgeni Malkin: 1.18

GPG:

Patrick Kane: .38
Evgeni Malkin .46

Playoff PPG:

Patrick Kane: .98
Evgeni Malkin: 1.04


Individual Awards:

Patrick Kane: Calder, Conn Smythe, Hart, Art Ross, Pearson

Evgeni Malkin: Calder, Conn Smythe, Hart, Art Ross(x2), Pearson

End of Year All-Star Teams:

Patrick Kane: 2 time NHL first team All-Star

Evgeni Malkin 3 time NHL first team All-Star


I get that this is just a great big marketing event so they want to please their big fan base in Chicago but anyone who thinks Kane is a better player than Malkin is a straight-up crazy person.

Well, Lalime being there certainly explains Nieuwendyk.

of course, there will always be debate on these types of lists, but no Malkin and Thornton is quite surprising.

None of those Blackhawks deserve to be there, like at all. Thornton > Toews, Malkin > Kane, Chara > Keith. But hey, at least NBC will have something to talk about in Chicago's next 10 Winter Classics.

Agreed.  Personally, I'd put Karlsson ahead of Keith, too.  If Kane hadn't had his monster year last year, not only would he not be on that list, he wouldn't even be a career PPG player, which he barely even is as it stands.  And the love that Toews continues to get just baffles me.

Whoops.  Didn't mean to leave Malkin off my list, my edit didn't save.  Not only can you make the case for Malkin over Kane but the persistent overvaluing of Toews drives me nuts.

It's official, Jonathan Toews is the most overrated player in NHL history. 

Excluding Malkin is a joke.  One of the post-lockout's top 3-5 players (and at various times #1), and he is excluded for the likes of Toews and Kane.  Thornton and Iginla are glaring omissions as well.

Keith is borderline for me, but no reason why Karlsson shouldn't have shown up on the list as well.

I don't mind Keith being there but as stated not when a guy like Chara isn't.  Chara has slowed down a lot in the last few years but he was legitimately impossible to play against for 2/3 of his career.

It also remains impossible for me to make a case for Sittler over Malkin or Thornton.

Heck, even Sundin over Malkin is iffy. Malkin should 100% be there.
