Seeing how classy Rafalski is/was made me realize how few players still show that kind of class. What are your top classiest players of all time or current players?

Pavel Datsyuk. Class personified. Nick and Gordie Howe come close, but Pasha has more class in his toenails than 99.9% of the league.

Oh yeah those guys too. Love it how I got a negative vote too, I thought it was obvious my sarcasm including Pronger and Cook on that list. <_<

So few players smoke a pipe or sport monocles and a bow tie anymore.

How has no one mentioned Yzerman yet?

I'd add Joe Sakic and Ron Francis as well.

1. Nicklas Lidstrom- simply the classiest guy to play hockey.. loyal to his team, respected by all around him and has always shown that respect right back.
2. Steve Yzerman- a very VERY close to first... but Nick beat him out slightly imo
3. Joe Sakic- i HATE the Avs and always will, but he was a classy and loyal team captain and is respected by all.
4. Martin Brodeur- great guy, great spirits, always respectful to team mates, everyone around the league and fans.
5. Pavel Datsyuk- he may not speak the best english, but he is friendly to all around him, lightens the spirits in the dressing room, always thinks in a positive way, puts others before himself and always gives it his best no matter what. IMO if his play continues like i think it will and his personality remains, he can work his way up this list.

I initially thought it was for current players, though if you're going to throw in retired players as well, Yzerman has to be at the top of the list.

I do not care about class. I care about hits, scoring, and winning.
