THREE IN FIFTY IS GOOD

TSN released their Top-50 NHL player rankings on Monday and Oiler fans should be pretty excited, if you believe these rankings are accurate.

For the 3rd straight season Sidney Crosby topped the rankings, despite playing 22 games last year, mainly due to his ridiculous 1.68 points-per-game ratio during those 22 games.  His teammate, Evgeni Malkin came in 2nd, but the expectations of Oilers' fans for the coming season might be even higher after seeing three Oilers crack the top-50.

Jordan Eberle came in at 25; Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is 48th and Taylor Hall sits 50th. 

The rankings are here, but here is a recap from most to least.

FIVE:
LA Kings: Kopitar (10th), Quick (16th), Doughty (17th), Brown (43rd) and M.Richards (44th).

FOUR:

Pittsburgh: Crosby (1st), Malkin (2nd), Letang (29th), Neal (36th).
Chicago: Toews (6th), Hossa (32nd), Kane (38th) and Keith (49th).
NYR: Lundqvist (15th), Nash (24th), B. Richards (42nd) and Gaborik (45th).

THREE:
Boston: Chara (12th), Seguin (31st), Bergeron (35th).
Edmonton: Eberle (25th), RNH (48th) and Hall (50th)

TWO:
Tampa Bay: Stamkos (4th), St. Louis (30th)
Detroit: Datsyuk (5th), Zetterberg (22nd)
Nashville: Weber (7th), Rinne (27th)
Vancouver: D. Sedin (8th), H. Sedin (9th)
Ottawa: Karlsson (11th), Spezza (23rd)
Minnesota: Parise (13th) Suter (26th) 
Washington: Ovechkin (14th), Backstrom (33rd)
Anaheim: Perry (19th), Getzlaf (34th)
Carolina: E. Staal (21st) and J. Staal (46th)
San Jose: Thornton (40th), Couture (41st)

ONE:
Philadelphia: Giroux (3rd)
New Jersey: Kovalchuk (18th)
NYI: Tavares (20th)
St. Louis: Pietrangelo (28th)
Calgary: Iginla (37th)
Dallas: Jamie Benn (39th)
Toronto: Kessel (47th)

NONE:
Buffalo
Colorado
Columbus
Florida
Montreal
Phoenix
Winnipeg

WHO GOT OVERLOOKED

When a ranking comes out, there is always a great debate over who got overlooked. Here are some guys I felt were right on the cusp or could have been included in the list.

Bobby Ryan: Only seven players have scored at least 30 goals in the last four seasons, and Ryan is one of them. Ovechkin, Kovalchuk, Nash, Iginla and Kessel did it and they are on the list. Ryan has scored 30 or more goals in his first four seasons; he's one of the most consistent goals scorers in the game.

Patrick Marleau: He is the 7th guy with four consecutive 30+ goal seasons. I know many rip him about his playoff performances, but he has 80 points in his last 107 playoff games. He's far from awful.

Teemu Selanne: He has averaged 0.91 points per game over the past four seasons while he was 38-41 years of age. He is an incredible player, and one of the best people in hockey. Until he retires he is in my top-50.

Patrick Sharp: Good hands, excellent two-way player and I'd take his overall game ahead of Marian Hossa. However, he doesn't have the explosiveness of Hossa.

Chris Pronger: If he is healthy he is on that list. He's still one of the best D-men in the game, whether you like him or not.

Niklas Kronwall: He moves the puck very well, isn't afraid to step up and deliver a big hit and he's averaged 40 points over his last four full seasons.

WHO WILL CRACK LIST SOON

The league is full of many young great players and I'd expect a few of these guys to crack the list next year.

Gabriel Landeskog: He's a rugged winger who is Incredibly mature, has good hands and has a solid overall game. Could score 20 in short season.

Evander Kane: Many question his maturity off the ice, but he's dynamic on it and if he continues to progress like he has the past two seasons he could be ranked in the 40-50 range next year.

Kevin Shattenkirk: Young, skilled D-man who likely ends being the centre piece of the Erik Johnson trade. He's put up 43 points in each of his first two seasons, and he and Pietrangelo could be the next Suter/Weber combo in St. Louis.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson: He is one of the most underrated players in the game. He doesn't get a lot of coverage playing in Phoenix, but after playing 25:46 a night during the Coyotes run to the conference finals last year, he proved he can excel when it matters most. He'll be in the top-50 next year.

Who would be on your "up-and-comer" or "overlooked" list?

WRAP UP

Having three players in the top-50 won't guarantee the Oilers a playoff berth, but it illustrates that the Oilers are heading in the right direction.

Phoenix was the only team to make the playoffs without having at least one player on the list, but last year Ray Whitney had 77 points for them, Mike Smith had a break out season and Ekman-Larsson emerged on the blueline. They were some of the best players in the league despite not being ranked.

You need one great player, and usually two or three, to win the Cup, and the Oilers have some of the best young talent in the game. If they can get some solid performances from Devan Dubnyk, Ales Hemsky, Ryan Whitney, Ladislav Smid, Nail Yakupov, Sam Gagner and Shawn Horcoff the Oilers should be right in the middle of a run to the playoffs in early April. 

PARTING SHOTS

  • Today is the final open practice for the Oilers. It starts at 11 a.m. and they will have an extended scrimmage today according to Ralph Krueger.
     
  • Take a moment and send me an email to gregor@theteam1260.com and nominate a coach for our Elite Sportswear Coach of the week. It doesn't matter what sport they coach, team or individual, I just want to hear what makes them a great volunteer coach.They will be interviewed on the show and get lots of great swag from Elite and you will feel great for recognizing their efforts.

Brief impressions from practice this afternoon, which included a long two-period scrimmage and a shootout:

- Gagner, Hemsky, Yakupov looked v. dangerous. There's some sick skill on that line.

- Hall, Eberle, Nuge made one great goal-scoring play and had a few chances, but I think they need to tweak their chem from 'AHL' to 'NHL.'

-Belanger's still terrible.

- J. Schultz is a crafty bugger. Slick. Real slick.

- Dubnyk moves surprisingly well for such a big guy. NK? The less said the better.

- Hartikinen limped off after taking a shot off of the skate near the end of the first period, but was back for the second.

- Couldn't get anywhere near the free popcorn. Peeps were all up in that like ravenous wolves.

Its good to hear that the Gagner line looks deadly. If that line starts showing up the kids, the kids will push back and play harder!

read: healthy competition for top spot!

That's exactly what we need =)

Every player on the Gagner line has something to prove, so you can expect them to be fired up from the get go! HOCKEY IS BACK!

From a fans perspective- Did anyone really standout ?

Yak ? Fistric ?

Fistric is rough at practice. He took out Eager, was roughing up Petrell and banged with Peckham. Looks like he feels like he has something to prove.

Hordi is sick in practice.

Yak had a sick backhand where he took it out from the coner to the net.

At the end Gagner and Yak were passing to each other doing one timers, and Yak has a good one.

J. Schultz is crafty.

Sign Darcy Hordichuk to a multi year extension now, before it's too late. Goal of the day today, great to see him celebrate,,ala Yakupov. What a sharp shooter!

J.Schultz is a master of deception, he's going to make some guys look really silly when he slips by his opponent leaving them grasping at nothing but air. Won't find him riding down anyones railroad tracks this season. The head/shoulder fake is reborn in this kid.

A packed house was on-hand for the fourth day of Calgary Flames camp. The stands were the fullest they've been – I'd estimate somewhere just south of 1,000 fans in attendance – as the Flames had a mixed session of practice and scrimmage.

A quick update. It was not DSF. As I said he is the Peter Griffin of the site. He gets you the ratings.

It is actually one of the writers on one of the sites.

His writing does not meet the standards expected of the comments let alone the writers. I feel that any site that would allow this out of a paid employee is not professional enough. My traffic will be on Allans site going forward.

Best of luck to everyone (writers and visitors) on Oilersnation.

@Romulus' Apotheosis

The grievance was made professionally to the proper person and privately.

I do not feel nor wanted to the to make the details of the grievance public.

I just wanted to thank all writers on Oilersnation and Commenters for the hours of entertainment and discussion they have provided me.

So again thank you to Wayne, Kent and every writer at Oilersnation.

Seeing how I have been sucked in to commented more on this than I wanted, here are my final "thoughts"

Arch, unfortunately you have lost your strongest Gagner Allie. See you on your site.

Bias does not equal unprofessionalism. Ie. Waynes articles.

DSF = site clicks. man we had some heated arguments.

Lou Lamoriello ruined the last CBA and is already done it to the new one. Zajac!

Don't worry Oilers and flames fans. Jordan Schroeder as the Canucks second line center will not push them past the first round.

Peace! We outta here.

You brought it up randomly and I see what your point would be to an extent but it doesn't change the fact that Idle No More is getting a message across, it's getting worldwide support and has people who actually will make a difference supporting it. Don't downplay it with the bandwagon jumping a lot of supporters are doing, a lot don't even know the issues they are supporting.

The list does have some quirks - like Toews as the 6th best in the NHL? Really? And Kane 38th? Ummmm... No.

The best player is probably Pavel Datsyuk - most complete superstar in the league and he's 5th?

Iggy 13 places ahead of Jordan Staal (who JUST beats out Phil Freaking Kessel)? I know who I would rather have...

But - that's why they make lists. So we can blog about them.
