2022 Top 20 NHL Wingers

August 11, 2022

Alex and Chace are back with another episode in part two of their top 20 lists. Today, they look at the best NHL wingers in the game. However, they need to look at a bunch of signings first. Starting with some depth names and working their way up. Someone who ranked top five in last week's list signed an extension!

From there, they start on the list. Alex notes how difficult this one was and why he feels there is so much volatility from year to year for the winger's list. Unlike centremen, there is no clear "best" player. Heck, Chace even argues there are upwards of eight guys that could be argued at number one. The guys start with their honourable mentions and work their way from 20 to 1. Breaking down each player on the list and how they got to that particular spot. As always, let the guys know if you agree or disagree with what they have!

The guys debate why they have certain players higher or lower than the other and also discuss the idea of tiers for centres. Let them know if you agree or disagree with their rankings and why!
