from Adrian Dater of the Denver Post,
In Monday's Denver Post, we have a story that polled 10 of the most experienced hockey writers in North America to name the top 10 centers in NHL history.
Joe Sakic came in eighth, just behind Bryan Trottier and just ahead of Stan Mikita. Steve Yzerman, the former Detroit Red Wings Hall of Famer, came in sixth.
Do we have a Red Wings-Avs rematch rivalry moment here? Who was better — Yzerman or Sakic? Were the poll responders wrong?
I'm going to say ... mmm ... can we debate this a little? They were such similar players with similar numbers, on the back of their sweaters and on the ice.
