In my opinion the top 20 NHL players in the game today. Based on many attributes including skill, talent around them, +/-, and position.
Sidney Crosby is listed (or ranked) 1 on the list The Top 20 NHL Players

Sidney Crosby, C, PIT- Simply put, Crosby is the best player in the game today. Although, he clearly has some concussion issues to take care of. If he can remain healthy, he should cement his position as the league's best. see more on Sidney Crosby
Evgeni Malkin is listed (or ranked) 2 on the list The Top 20 NHL Players

Evgeni Malkin, C, PIT- After capturing the Hart Trophy, the Art Ross trophy, the Ted Lindsay award, and showing off his improved English, Malkin comes in at #2. Malkin is one of the craftiest players in the game, and his hands are unreal. He and Crosby form the league's best duo. see more on Evgeni Malkin
Claude Giroux is listed (or ranked) 3 on the list The Top 20 NHL Players

Claude Giroux, C, PHI- At the ripe age of 24, Giroux has quickly established himself as a top 5 player in the NHL. Since his first season, his point totals have risen every year. From 27 to 47 to 76 and now 93. I project him to eclipse the 100 point mark next year. see more on Claude Giroux
Steven Stamkos is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list The Top 20 NHL Players

Steven Stamkos, C, TB- Stamkos has led the NHL in scoring 2 of the past 3 years. He is renowned as the best sniper today. Oh, and get this, he's only 22. see more on Steven Stamkos
