(#95) Goalie, Cam Ward:

He has a Conn Smythe on his mantel and that says a lot. His numbers get better in the postseason. That says he is a gamer.

(#43) Forward, Eric Staal:

Like Evgeni Malkin he is a rangy, effortless, talent. Not afraid of the big spot. These Staal's thrive in the spotlight. I think he needs a trade to give his career a second-half jump-start.

(#25) Forward, Jeff Skinner:

He reminds me of a lot of Zach Parise with his on-ice countenance, his unbridled joy and investment in the shift. "The Thriller." Thirty goals as an 18-year-old is special. Would have had 30 more this year if he hadn't gotten hurt. He will hit 40 goals in a season soon. Top-10 player in terms of excitement. You just sense the Stanley Cup playoffs would take his game to an insane excitement level, possibly causing him to explode.

Other Notable's

(#86, Former Hartford Whaler) Defender, Chris Pronger:

A stick tap to a great hockey player. It stinks we won't see his personality again this season. He's an attraction.

(#55, Eric Staal's Brother) Forward, Jordan Staal:

He added another gear this year to become a little more of an offensive threat. Big, smart and reliable. Still just 23, and he has a little more room to grow. He was on his way to a 30-goal season before he got hurt. He is about to emerge into an all-situation guy.

Staal should be a little higher...stoked that Skinner made top 25 though :)

I'm surprised someone at ESPN has actually noticed the Hurricanes roster. And for the most part, I agree with the list.
