There has been a lot of incredible hockey played since the turn of the millennium. What's even better, there hasn't been a repeat champion and only the back-to-back Pens-Wings Finals felt like a deja vu championship.

What follows is our ranking of the 50 best players since the 2000-01 season. Enjoy!
