Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity. As such, we are very happy to present our post 2021/22 revision of our top Los Angeles Kings.
As for all of our top 50 players in hockey we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the National Hockey League.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
Last year, Nashville made the playoffs but were bounced in the first round. There were multiple active Predators on the list, leading to some significant elevations, including a new number one. There was also one new entry.
As always, we present our top five:
1. Roman Josi
2. Shea Weber
3. Pekka Rinne
You can find the entire list here.
Josi, who was the runner-up for the Norris last year, takes over at number one, overtaking Weber and Rinne. Forsberg, who is currently a top Forward for the Predators, moves into the top five, taking over the spot from Kimmo Timonen. He advanced from #9.
Defenseman, Mattias Ekholm, inched up one spot to #9.
Goalie, Juuse Saros, went up from #20 to 14.
Center, Ryan Johansen, climbed to #17 from #21.
Another Center, Colton Sissons advanced five spots to #35.
The new entrant is Forward, Mikael Granlund, who debuts at #49. He knocks Austin Watson off the list.
