L O L

So they're listing the NHL's best ever by first letter. Some picks are of course controversial (B!), but you'd think L was a no-brainer. Think again.

NHL is brutal at these (you should see their top-10 captains of all-time...Sid was on it, Stevens was not...of course, Messier was #1 for no obvious reason at all...)

Quick notes:
- Jari Kurri is better than Red Kelly? That's news to me...
- Lemieux and Lidstrom are not tied, let's get serious...no shame being runner-up to Mario...
- Lafleur and Leetch are not tied, let's get serious...also, if Lafleur is somehow dragged down to Leetch's level, I wonder where that places Newsy Lalonde and Ted Lindsay!
- Mikita and Morenz were both better than Messier by a clear margin...if MacInnis is there, the Big M should be there, so should Joe Malone...maybe even Dickie Moore...

I just noticed they don't even mention Doug Harvey.

Just gonna quickly look at the others (through cracks between the fingers covering my face)...

- No Syl Apps for A?
- Brodeur better than Beliveau and Bourque? Don't think so...
- No mention of Bobby Clarke for C?
- I'd take Dryden over Dionne
- Forsberg was better than Francis
- The Answer to "H" is Howe followed by Harvey or Bobby Hull...anything else is just ridiculous...
- Not that he was better than Richard, but no mention of Larry Robinson for R?
- No mention of Eddie Shore or Milt Schmidt for S?

I had to look again to confirm that it was not some POS written by some nobody on Bleacherreport or something. No, it's written by some nobody on NHL.com.

I think the whole point of this was to get somebody to read it, piss them off, and have them send it to all their friends and tell them how stupid it was so their friends click on it...

Boom, instant web traffic.

Why didn't they add a comment section then?

Oops, you're right. There was no comment section for R-Z, though.
