Hey! Where the heck is The Great One?

I hate to be confrontational or argumentative. Right?
But NHL.com did a list of the most exciting players of all time  … and somehow Wayne Gretzky wasn’t on it. Nor was Mario Lemieux. Or Jaromir Jagr, who, love him or not, was a thrill a minute when he wanted to be.
I don’t get that at all. What was more exciting than TGO scoring 50 goals in the first 39 games of a season? Or scoring points in 51 consecutive games? Or zooming past Phil Esposito’s record and breaking the 80, and then the 90 barrier?
I mean, Denis Savard? Yeah, he did the spin-a-rama, which might be the dumbest expression in sports. And he’s a Hall of Famer. But more exciting than 99? You kiddin’ me?
Well, at least Skid Crosby wasn’t on the list. Or isn’t at the moment.
