Top EE Athlete - Lomachenko or Modric or Ovechkin or Djokovic?

Ovechkin - Greatest goal scorer in NHL history
Lomachenko - Most talented boxer since RJJ
Modric - Some soccer pussy who plays for a club called 'Royal', lol
Djokovic - Right because some Catholic school prep who hits a ball with a racket is greater than Alex friggin' Ovechkin, lulz

Well it also helps that there are like 10 penalties called a game these days so he gets to pad his stats with PP goals

I know what you mean by that, but scoring wise you can't put him ahead of Gretzky yet. Gretzky played in a different era, yes, where everyone was scoring more, but he was even light years ahead of all the greats he played with at the time. Compared to his peers, Ovi is upper crust, no doubt - but not light years ahead of his peers in terms of scoring production. Ovi will finish top 5 in terms of goals scored, I just don't think he can stay healthy for 4-5 more years and start to approach Gretzky.

I assume active. If not, then no way Ovaries can touch Jagr.

If it wasn't for the NHL's 100 lockouts and his three seasons in the KHL I think he would have easily pass Gretzky in goals. However Gretzky played much less games than Jagr, making his accomplishments more impressive

Jagr scored 32 goals in the shortened 94-95 season...using that scoring rate over a full season that would be 55 (+22)

2004-05 the entire season was cancelled: He scored 31 goals in the season prior but 54 the following season, lets split it and say he scores 43 (+43)...maybe a tad high and after the 2005 season he never scored more than 30 but whatever

2012-13 was another shortened season where he scored 16, using that scoring rate over a full season: 27 (+11)

So just on lockouts alone he lost roughly 76 goals and that doesn't include his 3 KHL seasons, so even at a modest 20 goals a season he would have pass Gretzky, possibly more than 900 goals

Jagr was the better player (best NHL player I've seen along with Hasek, prime Fedorov and Forsbegr were great too) but what Ovy does in this era is amazing. And he's adjusted his game now that he hasn't had explosuve speed for like the last 4 or so years.

“When you look at match players in the history of tennis, I don’t believe that anybody can equal everything on the court that Djokovic does. I don’t think you can find a weakness in his game. His movement, personality, his return of serve, his serve, excellent touch, not hesitant in coming to the net, great serve. Over all, almost every player has a downfall; to me he doesn’t have one. He’s perhaps the best put-together player that I’ve seen over 60 years.”

- Nick Bollettieri

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...Novak_Djokovic

Capello beamed: "From Savicevic you came to expect these unthinkable plays of brilliance, because from the position he was in most players would have just taken the ball in stride and gone a little further with it, instead he went for this spectacular attempt which has gone down in history and is shown over and over again. It was simply.... Una cosa da Savicevic [the way of Savicevic]."
