Best Ever American in the NHL

My choice for best ever American-born player in the NHL is Brian Leetch. He was born in Corpus Christi, Texas and moved to Connecticut as an infant, eventually enrolling in Boston College.

During his 18-year career, Brian Leetch was a two-time Norris Trophy winner as the NHL's best defenseman and was the first American-born winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy as Playoff MVP for his brilliant play during the New York Rangers' run to the 1994 Stanley Cup Championship. He is one of only five NHL defensemen to score 100 points in a season with his 102-point campaign in 199192.

IIHF World Ranking

The world ranking of national teams is based on the final positions of the last four Ice Hockey World Championships and last Olympic ice hockey tournament. The world champion receives 1200 points and then a 20-point interval is used between teams. However a 40 point interval is used between gold and silver, silver and bronze, fourth and fifth and eighth and ninth. This is used as a bonus for the teams who reach the quarter-finals, the semi-finals, the final and for winning the gold medal. Points awarded in the current year are valued at the full amount. Points award in the prior years decline linearly by 25% until the fifth year when they are dropped from the calculation.

2011 Ranking
1. Russia
2. Finland
3. Sweden
4. Canada
5. Czech Republic
6. United States
7. Switzerland
8. Germany
9. Norway
10. Slovakia

Best Ever European in the NHL

I have to go with Jaromir Jagr as best ever European trained player in the NHL. Jagr was born in Kladno, Czechoslovakia. He joined the Pittsburg Penguins from Kladno as an 18-year-old.

Jagr has won the Stanley Cup, the World Championships and an Olympic gold medal. Jagr has been the NHL's leading point scorer five times and won a Hart Trophy as the league's most valuable player. He has been named to seven NHL First All-Star Teams. Jagr is the all-time leader among European trained players in career goals, assists and points.
