The NHL Players’ Association (NHLPA) have conducted their annual anonymous players’ poll asking the questions like:

“Who is the best forward?”

”Who is the most complete player?”

“If you need to win one game, who is the one player (any position) you would want on your team?”


The answer to each of those questions, by the way, is Sidney Crosby. Well… almost. Connor McDavid took home the prize for best forward with Crosby coming in second, but a whopping 44% of NHL players said they’d want Crosby on their team in a do or die situation. 45% of players named Crosby as the most complete player in the NHL. Incredible.
