Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Jason Brough of Orland Kurtenblog,
If this were a league-wide fan poll, Sidney Crosby would probably garner the most votes. And he’d get even more votes if he had a decent winger to make plays with. (You could say the same about teammate Evgeni Malkin.)
Another leading contender would be Joe Thornton. When it comes to the best pure passers, Jumbo Joe is right there.
You’d also get support for Nicklas Backstrom, although you wonder where he’d rank without Alex Ovechkin.
Maybe Brad Richards? He’s been fantastic since falling off the radar for a few years.
Maybe a healthy Marc Savard?
All those great candidates aside, Henrik boasts the best numbers, at least of late. His 83 assists in 2009-10 led the league by a wide margin, and he hasn’t let up to start 2010-11.
