Nice little article to discuss while we wait for the Philly game.
Apparantly 10 "experts" on NHL.com votes on the best centers. They had to vote top 8 with their #1 getting 8 pts #2 getting 7, on down to 1 pt for an 8 vote.
Crosby and Malking were #1 and #2. We are lucky. Interesting to see the other results.http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=6580 ... L|NHL|home
Crosby got 7 out of 10 first place votes. When he wasn's first he was second and one time was third. Also, when he wasn't first - he was beaten by Malkin or Stamkos. Malkin a lot of 2nd/3rd place votes, couple first.
Giroux didn't make the top 10.
and only received 3 overall votes (two 7's, one 4th.)
What are people's thoughts on the rest of the list? Stamkos' shot is a thing of beauty but I am not sure if I would put him #3. Maybe that is because we Pens fans have seen a lot of Datsyuk in recent years.
