Which forwards would you most like to have on your NHL team next season?
Fans of various NHL teams are constantly in battle over which player is the league’s best, or if one player is better than another player. That’s especially true of forwards, the guys who are often at the forefront of a team or game.
The debate will always rage on regarding guys like Sidney Crosby and Jonathan Toews, and guys like Patrick Kane, Alexander Ovechkin, Steven Stamkos and the like. If there’s some sort of statistic or comparable ideal between NHL players, you know fans and “experts” will debate it.

I’m certainly no expert, but I am a hockey fan. And I’m going to offer NHL power rankings for the top 50 forwards heading into the 2016-17 season, starting with Nos. 50-25 today.
Now, these rankings aren’t necessarily based on a single statistic. If they were, I would’ve just ranked the forwards based on how many points they scored last season. These rankings are objective and subjective; they combine statistical success with how much I’d like to have certain players on my NHL team (if I were an owner/general manager).
And with that, let’s get started.
Next: Nos. 50-38
