Player Of The Decades


Brass

Recommended Posts

Since it's WAY to hard to determine a Player of the Century, I decided to do a player of the decade thread. Feel free to post any sport with the decades, and who rules that decade. Here's my NHL:

1960's-Maurice Richard/Gordie Howe

1970's-Bobby Orr

1980's-Wayne Gretzky

1990's-Mario Lemieux

2000's-Not sure who to pick....

Well, I think it is 3 early too name the player of the 2000 since it's only been 4 years but if I had to pick one for the NHL I would have to say Marty Brodeur. He has been the dominate goalie since 2000. He has won 2 cups and been to 3 finals all in 4 years. Though it is still too to name a player for the 2000's.

Richard retired in 1960 maybe he could be player of the 50s with Howe, but he cant be player of the 60's

Can't argue about Orr in the 70s, Gretzky in the 80s and Mario in the 90s.

The 2000s should finish before you award a player of the decade, but I agree with JKR Brodeur has the early lead.

Heres my list for the NHL

1910's Joe Malone

1920's Clint Benedict

1930's Charlie Conacher

1940's Bill Durnan

1950's Gordie Howe with Richard pulling a close second

1960's Bobby Hull

1970's Bobby Orr

1980's Wayne Gretzky

1990's Mario Lemeiux

I was thinking the same thing about Richard & Howe--I'd have to pick Hull too--although it's not as cut & dried as some other decades--I'd consider Espo or Lafleur for the 70's--Orr's career was too short--or split the 70's into halves and go with Orr for the Start, Lafleur for the finish

He was a mjor cog in the 1998 Grey Cup win, and with basically the same team and a different QB we lost the 1999 game--so yeah in a way I am.

But it was meant as a joke--one of those things that popped into my head, so I decided to post it--I was amused... :D

You seem to be in the minority on that but in any case we both know what we think of Jeff Garcia's quarterback skills--so I'm leaving it there

--- "Gilroy was here"--

was a take off on "Kilroy was here".

I enjoy the CFL as a highly entertaining brand of football--it is idstinct enough to be a different game of sorts than the NFL, so in a sense not in direct competition.

it is possible to like both, but prefer one...

So that's all on that Shark, you're not going to bait me into an argument, or get me upset---

:P

nobodys trying to get you upset stampy. And there is no argument. Garlic boy is a failure and thats all there is to it. Watch, soon all the fans of the Cleveland National Football League club (Im being politically correct, okay) will understand what Im saying.
