No. 10, the King

87

AOL sports is doing a top-50 list of NHL players, and this should spark some discussion. King Henrik Lundqvist is No. 10 … as in one of the top 10 players in all of hockey.

Can you imagine that? 

You guys probably love that Martin Brodeur ranks No. 11. Marian Gaborik is No. 33.

They have not revealed the top seven yet. Here’s the list so far.

    Anything related to “AOL” is bush-league. I’m still trying to cancel my AOL service … and I’ve been on the phone since 2004.

    rob you have to play the game to actually be considered i think. hopefully, gabby can start over here and play a full season. thats the only reason hes rated so low. he has the ability to be top 10 if he just stays healthy. and if he can play like he did last season at the end, he’ll be top 5 right behind AO, crosbitch, malkin, and kovachuk. in the east anyway.

    aol is left wing bs!!!! i hate it too pimp. hank shouldve been #1!!! let me guess, crysbaby is 1 nd they put ovie #2. but even though ovie is more skilled crybaby was pretty damn good this playoffs. scored a lot of goals too. not just assists.

  4. Grabachev in IA on

    ha!! redden. just missed it huh carp?? lol hey, there was a time when he was actually a damn good player. he was nervous lat year. he started playin better under torts. he’ll be good(or at least better)this year. lets give em a break already!! lets pick on vally now!! he sucks!! lol

  5. The Most Interesting Man in the World (formerly MiamiPimp) on

    T. Fleury will certainly be included in the top 7

  6. Grabachev in IA on

    man, why is duby not signed yet??? somethings not right here. its been over a week since we walked from zherdev. whats takin so long? i know its sunday, so nothin happenin today, but i wanna see him signed at least this coming week. hopefully tommorow. as long as he isnt, were gonna keep hearing stupid trade rumours, and im tired of richards and heatley. at this point, just sign duby and get camp goin already

  7. Doodie Machetto on

    Crazy, they tried out Pogge and he just fizzled incredibly. He has no future with that franchise. They moved him as a courtesy to him to see if he can rebound somewhere else.

    I immediately had a problem with that list because Shane Doan was 50. Just because he’s on a bad team doesn’t mean he’s 50th best. He’s a great player, way better than 50th.

  8. who would be the top 7? ovechkin, malkin, crosby, lidstrom, iginla, toews, and MA fleury?

  9. they are trading pogge cause the signed that swedish free agent goalie, gustav-whatever. and pogge wasnt impressive at all last season

  10. punching a cabbie over 20 cents? there has got to be more to it than this. although it was at 5am so who knows how messed up they were

  11. If that story out of Canada is true to the details, this is a body blow to the Hawks. if this kid turns out to be a punk?
    On his salary he’s stiffing a cabby of pennies on the dollar?( I suppose a tip would be out of the quyestion). It will be very interesting to see how this all plays out. It could wind up as an object lesson on “How to ruin your life in 30 seconds”

  12. That kane situation is really weird for sure. Maybe he found our ORR was after one of his hot sisters (I think he is the one with three hot sisters, it’s him or toews). Dubi situation def worries me. Morning Carp and everyone else from siberia. Anyone going to the rangers flames game in calgary this year???

  13. Johnny LaRue on

    AOL still exists? Last time I was on there it had pretty much turned into a chick website. What’s next, People magazine’s in depth analysis of the upcoming hockey season?

  14. i have a question…

    do the Sedin twins must be everywhere together?? Even on the top 50 list??

    and do we even need to wait to see who is number one on that ‘gay-OL’ top 50 list??

    *No. 21 — The Sedin Twins, Vancouver Canucks*

  15. onecupin69yearsand counting on

    Is this the steroid list? where’ s the top seven?

    who cares about a list?
    Just win the cup.
    And I think Dubi will be traded, Sather likes old vets.
    I think he resents the money the young players get, especially after 2 years in the league who have a lot to prove and haven’t won a cup.
    And sather likes to eff things up, I wonder what he tells brain dead dolan?

  16. i think i’ve figured out the top 7 ???

    Crosby
    Malkin
    AO
    Datsyuk
    Iginla
    T. Thomas
    Kiprusoff

    I dont know why people put out these lists — its always the same top 5 everytime …. Seeing Hank get top 10 Honors was a nice change though

  17. i remembered when the hockey news or maybe it was SI that placed the rangers last for the season right after the lockout…. dont really put too much faith in them

  18. if we trade dubi it better NOT be for richards, dubi almost had as many points as him and Richards is a pussy! 6 PIM (richards last year) means your not playing hard enough.. there will be times when you are back checking your a$$ off (like dubi does) and will get a stick caught up or something that should give you more than 6 PIM in a season. penalties are not good but when you only have 6 for a season something is wrong (ie pu$$y).

    The only way i would even be close to alright with getting rid of dubi would to get heatley and having him and Gaborik on the same team giving us a 1-2 punch sort of like malkin-cindy, toews-kane, and zetterberg-datsuyk.

    TO GLEN SATHER:
    DONT BE A F’N MORON! WE HAVE SOMETHING GOOD GOING ON WITH OUR YOUTH FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A LONG TIME. I KNOW IT SEEMS WEIRD TO YOU TO HAVE YOUTH THAT CAN ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING. LET THE KIDS PLAY! THE LAST THING WE NEED IS ANOTHER OVERPAID UNDERACHIEVING PLAYER IN THIS LOCKER ROOM. STAY PUT, SIGN DUBI AND LETS GET THIS SEASON ROLLING.

    LETS GO RANGERS!!!!!!!!

  19. bull dog line on

    read on this blog earlier that Dubi was overrated.
    He is the opposite, very underrated. His game is all over the ice, not just scoring. He is physical, tough, talented, fast and has an all around solid game. Worst case for Dubi, is he is what he is now.

  20. Grabachev in IA on

    haha brad richards had 6 pims??? he probably got 3 delay of games to. not any real penalty. what a punk. so is kane. im a broke mofo and i tip good. whats wrong wit these rich snobby punks.

  21. Grabachev in IA on

    but, if heatley was comin our way instead of brad bichards, then ok, im fine with that. throw dru on that top line then. artie on 2nd and boyle and arnason on 3 and 4. wed be the new ottawa senators then lol. 1 good line 3 so so lines. nah keep the doobster!! we all love ’em anyway. ok slatipuss??

  22. Grabachev in IA on

    and mako, and kaspar, and brooklyndomi?? wheres mike A?? wheres colin and bacon egg n cheese, lol. wheres mike in ia? i miss him the most

  23. Grabachev in IA on

    carp- any whispers on st louis? j/k

    carp, any news on duby??? lol, j/k big guy. but no seriously, any news on duby??

  24. “That kane situation is really weird for sure. Maybe he found our ORR was after one of his hot sisters”

    Hahahaha, when i read that Kane story for the first thing i thought of was seeing his 3 hot sisters at the NHL awards. Id like piece of all of them.

    Evander Kane has like 4 hot sisters too.

    I wonder if the wrestler Kane has any hot daughters. Probably not, that guy looks like the Elephant Man, and Rocky Dennis from Mask put together on one head.

  25. I want nothing but to keep Dubinski… Hes my favorite player on the entire team as of now. He plays with fire and determination that few players in the league play with. I would under stand if glen went for heatley b/c he is an actual upper class player in this league.

    I would like to see what penalties richards actually had.. it seriously could be 3 delay of games. No matter what we dont need a fruit cake like that on our team even if he was making 4-5 mil instead of his 7. I want to see a high flying hard hitting team in the garden this year

  26. Grabachev in IA on

    carp- was seinfeld a ranger fan? i didnt watch the show too much, but i did like the show. i think i remember an episode where they all go to a ranger game and get lost in the parking garage. also, i like the one where kramer(i think) decides to own a muffin shop that only sells muffin tops or somethin like that. lol that was a good one. and i like the episode where george gets “shrinkage”!! awesome show. i gotta get it on dvd soon.

  27. Grabachev in IA on

    nazem kadri has some hot sisters or cousins too!! i like me some spicy indian lovin!!

  28. Grabachev in IA on

    LETS GO RANGERS!!!!!!!!

  31. Seinfeld is a Rangers fan, if anything. He gets tickets to a couple of Devils-Rangers playoff games, but has to go with Elaine’s boyfriend, who’s a Devils fan (and a face-painter) in a Brodeur jersey.

  32. Carp, Quick question, everyone is saying it was leetch’s shot that broke JR’s jaw, wasn’t it boris mironov’s or an I mistaken???

  33. onecupin69yearsand counting on

    So let me get this straight.. Kane a spoiled child who has been told how great he is and has had and is having his ass kissed.
    Acts like a crybaby over ” 20 cent” as they say in da hood?

    maybe he’ll self destruct in a couple of years be traded, langour in the minor leagues and seek out a team to take him back all before his 26 birthday, I hope he gets his wish.

  34. From TSN’s _The Reporters_

    “Michael Farber, Sports Illustrated: My thumb is up to the New York Rangers for walking away from Nikolai Zherdev, who was awarded $3.9 million by an arbitrator. Zherdev had 23 goals last year. That’s a considerable percentage of the 198 the Rangers scored, the lowest in the Eastern Conference along with the Islanders, but still he was deemed not worthy of it. I applaud Glen Sather for walking away. Instead of whining about the contracts that general managers give players, or sometimes players are awarded, the Rangers used a tool in the CBA – more teams should consider it.”

  35. Citizen Kane ruined my faith in cleancut american kids.Oh my God…Don’t be like our Pres.- you do NOT know all the facts,who said what to who, but ready to say it was stupid…Such a moralists, particular considering some bunch of horny loosers at this site..Sorry,guys, with now hockey news it’s still radiculous.

  36. seinfeld is definately a NYR fan. i sat across from him at MSG during Gretzky’s final game in 1999. my sister got us as good of seats as seinfeld. we felt like kings.

    i think the top 10 of players has redden at #9 and dubinsky at #8. just my gut feeling.

    jeez its football season already?

  37. Just read the Kane story… wow

    His value in my eyes just went all the way down to 20 cents! (no pun intended)

    If this kid is the new face of the NHL, man, I am afraid to know what the a$$ looks like!

  38. i heard the top seven are below:

    1. Wade Redden
    2. Marek Malik
    3. Tom Poti
    4. Colton Orr
    5. Blair Betts
    6. Petr Prucha
    7. Nigel Dawes

    of course that could have been the wrong poll, as i would have had Cindy Crybaby above Petr Prucha, although definately not above Colton Orr..!!

  39. Patrick Kane... on

    He will almost undoubtedly be yanked from the cover of NHL ’10 now (EA did the same thing to Heatley when he got into trouble with the law) and replaced with a “safer” cover boy like Crosby, Malkin, Zetterberg, or Datsyuk.

  40. Carp

    Can you confirm a rumor regarding the Rangers signing Francois Boullion to a 1 year contract?

    Maybe you ask around.

  41. The Kane story is so over the top that I won’t believe it until more info comes out. There’s got to be more to this story that we don’t know…
    If it’s true, the kid should be required to see Avery’s therapist for half a season before being allowed to play again.

  42. Nicholas – he’s 33, 5’8″ and got paid $1.875m last year. Unless he’s grown 4 inches and willing to play for half of last years salary then i doubt he will be making an appearance at MSG in Ranger Blue this year!

    Plus, we are well stocked with good young defensemen and we’d be stupid to sign someone who may prevent one from making the team at twice the money (unless your getting paid like Matt Gilroy!).

  43. Joe in DE (the real one) on

    Kane will be fine. So what? He cold-cocked some cabby for not having exact change. That’s BS. This recession hits everyone, and you gotta save money where you can, even if you are making 875K a year. Let’s talk about the real issue here; why didn’t the cab driver have the change? It’s your job to carry money to complete the transaction… NEGLIGENCE! I highly doubt the cabby knew who Patrick Kane was, unless Kane has a cricket career that we’re not aware of.

    Honestly, he’ll be fine. The charges will probably get dropped. If it’s his first offense he’ll probably get probation before judgment and the whole mess will go away. He should have taken a lesson from another famous Blackhawk, Ed Belfour, who proved that you can still be an NHL superstar while regularly going out, getting wasted, and punching cops.

    Why kane we be friends on this blog?
    I kane understand why sather makes these bonehead moves.
    Kane you believe hockey preseason is almost here!
    Well you kane take it with you so sather spends dolans money,
    I kane go to the games its so expensive.

  45. I didn’y comment on the Fleury thing but:

    Bring back Fleury!!

    I’d much rather see him on this year’s roster than Voros or Arnason. Can you imagine him and Aves yapping at Cindy, Malkin, Pronger, Tavares, Fatso Maaarty.

    I saw him play a few years ago when he was playing in the British Elite League for Belfast (22g 52a in 34 games!), apart from one unsavoury incident with a fan and some bad refereeing he was a class apart from anything else in the league and (rightfully) won sports writers player of the year. In fact he’s clearly the best player to have played Ice Hockey in Britain.

  46. Any person who uses that “Don’t you know who i am?” line deserves both barrels from the league, press and fans in my opinion.

    According to TSN:
    “The driver said he was punched and hit by both men because he did not have 20 cents in change to give them, according to the police report.”

    If the above is true – lock him up.

    I don’t know what the laws are like over there for first offences but a quick google search looks like if he gets Felony robbery he could go down for a stretch, Misdemeanour theft would probably mean a fine and/or probation.
