    He is definately top 25.  There are some who are truly special, Crosby first among those.  Then Datsyuk and Zetterberg, Eric Staal, Ryan Getzlaf and maybe Evgeni Malkin, though I find him a bit of a flake.  After that there is a mixed bag of players like Richards (Mike or Brad), Toews, Stamkos, Joe Thornton, Brierre and a few others that you may rank higher or lower than DK (or PB) depending on your taste, but none of them have shown to me that they are a true step above.  I have never been impressed with Henrik Sedin and am even less so after watching the playoffs.  He had one good series.  He's fantastic when the game is easy.

    Krejci isn't a top 10 but certainly an argument can be made for top 25..Looking at the list I'd have him at 17

    My view of top centers is how they do in the playoffs.

    1. Crosby
    2. Datsyuk
    3. Toews
    4. Malkin
    5. Zetterberg

    No way Henrik Sedin near those guys. Krejci and Bergeron I would have at about 10-15.

    yeah, I see him and Datsyuk as inter-changable. Kesler is more physical/uptempto, Datsyuk is more skilled. They are both beasts in the defensive zone.

    Kesler was injured in the playoffs, so I am discounting his performance, but watching him in the regular season was a thing of beauty. He's the real deal.

    No way Krejci cracks the top 20 imo.

    That list gives us a look at how one of our beloved players compares in eyes without the black and gold tint.

    In a few years, as he gets stronger and better, he'll be up there.

    He just isn't yet.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Is Krejci a top 25 NHL center? : Tavares might eventually prove to be a superior center but he hasn't played enough yet to warrant being ahead of Krejci. Krejci easily fits into the Top 25.

    TTBI - Bang on.  No question Tavares is a talented player of significant impact on his team but at this stage of his career, I don't see that skill ranking him ahead of Krejci right now thus bumping #46 out of the conversation for top 25 centers league-wide.

    I'm also seeing no love for Plekanec (who would he's a Hab). 
    Here's another 2way center that was leading the Habs in points till Gionta started putting up numbers.
    Plekanec is also one of their best faceoff man. 
    Didn't he give trouble to Krejci in the 1st round round? and wans't Julien trying to get Krejci away from him ?
    Krejci did fight through his checking eventually and that's why I'de prefer Krejci over Plekanec.
    I might not have him ahead of Krejci but I'de put him anywhere between 20-25.

    The list isn't so bad.

    I only wonderabout Mike Richards at no 12 ?? This guy is a great leader, a good package deal, but not that skilled !!! He reminds me a poor version of Bryan Trottier

    IMO Crosby is a great player, but not the #1 center in the league, he's more like 15th. Datsyuk #1; Staal[ Carolina] # 2; Bergeron #3; Kesler#4; Getzlaf #5; Toews #6; After that there are a bunch, including Kreji who contribute to their team's success, but depend upon skilled wings to be effective, no-one can really rank them as their team composition creates their contributions.

    Bogie , are you serious ? 15 centers that are better then Crosby ? Try double dosing on the Geritol so you can stay up past 7:00.
