List Rules The person you think is the next great big player – the player you like the most and will be the best on the ice.

Editor's Note: Voting and Reranking have been closed.
With all of the bright young talent in hockey today, it's easy to ask who is the best player under 25? Fortunately for hockey fans, there's an abundance of young talent that's emerged in recent years. Those players - both as highly touted prospects and surprise successes – are emerging to become the faces of both their respective teams and National Hockey League.
  
So, that said, who is the best young player in the National Hockey League today? Any list has to include former #1 draft picks Steven Stamkos, John Taveras and Taylor Hall. So, who do you think should be #1?  Only one can be named the best Under-25 hockey player.
 
It's up to you decide which of these great talents is hockey’s next great superstar. There are plenty of great options on this list, so you really can't go wrong.
