    Default Top 10 Skilled NHL Players.

    TSN's hockey panel, as well as some notable hockey players (Brett Hull, Dale Hawerchuck, Darryl Sittler to name a few) came up with a list of the most skilled hockey players.

    Here's what they came up with.

    1. Mario Lemieux
    2. Bobby Orr
    3. Wayne Gretzky
    4. Alex Kovalev
    5. Gilbert Perreault
    6. Kent Nilsson
    7. Denis Savard
    8. Pavel Bure
    9. Jaromir Jagr
    10. Pavel Datsuk

    EDIT: Video can be seen here - http://watch.tsn.ca/#clip332775

    I just thought I would add, since this is a list made from the opinions of others, it makes it a fact. This is based on nothing more than the ever so arbitrary guide to fact vs fiction by one very special senior member here.

    So I guess it is fact. Gretzky is the third most skilled. Clod hard facts are all we go by on this board, and cold hard facts are what I have provided.

    Well, a few thoughts...

    I always thought Mario was better than Wayne. So agree with his top-rating.

    Kent Nilsson and Denis Savard ahead of Datsyuk? No way.

    No jealousy here. Just came across a list and wanted to share. Sorry if it upsets you. By the way, I didn't realize birthday celebrations were among the criteria when determining the most skill hockey players. You make less sense every time you post on here, Jack.

    So....do you remember Gretzky's?
    The hockey world has spoken and I guess you missed it?
    The reason you don't remember anybody elses birthday is they don't celebrate 3rd or 4th or even 2nd!
    It is reserved for the G.O.A.T!
    And oscar...for a guy like you, I'm sure there is a lot you don't realize.
    Don't be alarmed!

    Gretzky was also a wimp.

    I guess I understand your attraction to him.

    Because the Russians are smart, and using the time to rest and heal.

    God bless you, Pavel Datsyuk.

    The reason I remember Waynes's birthday is very simple.......It's the same day as my daughters and daughter in law.

    Talk about wimps. That hit was nothing.

    Sid will not last long in the NHL, because he's too weak.
