As an owner of both green and letang I call bull[censored]. Maybe 3 years ago green deserves this, but winning it now just means people have clueless expectations. How can he be frustrating unless you're totally unrealistic of what he truly offers? I traded letang this year for a fortune because he is overvalued on what he could do...if he ever does. And I kept green because of how undervalued he is in peoples minds because, well, where's those 30 goal seasons now?! It is comical.

@mojavedesert - You're right. For some reason I get tripped up by that every time nowadays. It used to be Erik Johnson (I'd say "Eric") that gave me trouble. Now that I'll probably remember Backstrom, the only question is whose name I'll mangle next!

@joee - Thanks! I figured it was a good bookend to the tournament. Some names that probably would've been in the #11-#20 range include Patrick Marleau, Patrick Sharp, Blake Wheeler, Jarome Iginla, and, as you noted, Thornton. But non-frustrating goalies and defensemen prove harder to come by - maybe Nilkas Kronwall and either Corey Crawford or Carey Price would sneak into the top 20, but barely.

I love the least frustrating players list. It's a list I have long been thinking about as there are "bandaid boys list", and "Streaky players list" But there's never been a steady eddy list. It'd be nice to see an expanded list from a top 10 to a top 25. (I'd include Thornton)

No. 4 would actually be Nicklas Backstrom. Niklas Backstrom is the goalie in Minnesota. It is important to be able to distinguish the two players; my mnemonic is that the centre in Washington has a "c" in "Nicklas" whereas the goalie does not have the letter "c" in "Niklas".

"c" for "centre".
Simple :-)
