Bleacher Report just came out with this list. If you're an Flyers fan the NJ Devils are pretty much what the Raiders are to the Chiefs and I still say ranking Scott Stevens so much lower than Eric Lindros is blasphemy.

Even if you think the list is complete bunk there's some imagery that any hockey fan can appreciate. Some samples:

To put Gretzky before Orr is questionable, but arguable. To put Lemieux before Orr is criminal. In hockey, there's Orr and Gretzky, and there's everyone else.

I don't really think it's questionable to put Gretzky #1. He's going to be #1 on every list from now until forever. I agree that Mario at #2 is kind of questionable. I wouldn't have him above Orr or Howe.
I think it must have been intentional for them to have Hasek 31 and Brett Hull 30.

Yep, Lemieux is the Peyton Manning, league sweetheart of the NHL. The same guy who tried to get fighting banned.
