Last night at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, as part of All-Star Weekend and the centennial celebration of the NHL, the 100 greatest players of all time were revealed. The list includes some pretty common household names in the hockey world and also includes 6 current players (3 of which all come from the Chicago Blackhawks but that is a post for another day). While, personally I feel names are missing from this list, and for me there are a few head scratchers, The list is very accurate. So here are the NHL 100 greatest players.
