Greatest NHL player of all time Rd 1.

Here is the first bracket round. Please only vote one time and the voting will last exactly one week. Two brackets, East and West. Choose who is better of the two players going at it. Please note that seeds 27 and higher all had the same number of votes and were given their seed based on when they were nominated. As explained in the nomination round, The East bracket is all of the even seeds from 1 to 100 and the West is the odd seeds from 1 to 100. 50 players in each bracket highest seeds play the lowest seeds. I will only vote in the event of a tie. Have fun and thank you for participating.

NHL Greatest player of all time

Okay, I have seen these all over the place. Im doing one now.

Each person will nominate 5 players that have played in the NHL (I will allow some others such as Jim Craig for the simple fact they did something amazing) per day until I have 100. While you may votte more than once, please do not nominate the same 5 people over and over. after the nomination round there will be 50 Matchups in two brackets. The seeds willl be determined by how many votes each player gets. After the Nomination round I will not vote unless there is a tie. The top seed willl go up against the lowest seen and so on.  The two brackets will be equil to an odd seed bracket and an even seed bracket. To clarify this, Say the top seed of the nomination round is Wayne Gretzky and second seed is Mario Lemiux. Gretzky will be the top seed of the odd bracket (I will call it West) and Lemiux will be the top seed in the even (East). Each round will last roughly one week give a day depending on if I am able to access the site.

Red Wings Retired numbers

Number 9 - Gordie Howe

Number 12 - Sid Abel

Number 7- Ted Lindsay

Number 10 - Alex Delvecchio

Number 1- Terry Sawchuk

Number 19 - Captian Steve Yzerman

So I ask you all this, Who will be the next Wing to join these 6 amazing hockey players?

Lidstrom? Homer? Hank? Draper? Datsyuk? Maltby? Ozzie?

Should they raise banners for Larry Aurie and Vladimir Konstantinov?

What are your thoughts?

2009 All Star Game

Okay, This has been eating at me since I heard the news. Hank not getting voted in the 2009 all star game. Im trying to figure out how so many no namers got the spots when one of if not the best 2 way player in the NHL. Dont get me wrong, all of the players in the game are very talented and they all deserve their spots, but I mean comeon, it would be like keeping Gretzky Yzerman, Jagr, Lafleur, or Howe out of a list of the best players in hockey history. And what about Hossa? Dan Alfredson? Nabokov, Kippersof? There are a lot of big names missing from the list.

So here I would like to know everyones viewpoints on the missing players, well in my opinion missing players. and who you think will win the game.

I think East will dominate most of the game due to a lack in depth mainly in the D, and I see the starting lineups being one sided also in favor of the East.
