For the second installment of my NHL Power Rankings (for the first installment on the best goaltenders entering next season, click here), I have decided to focus on the man that holds down the middle of the ice.
Playing center in the sport of hockey is one of the most difficult positions in all of sports. The amount of responsibilities is endless, as one must be able to possess a strong will in the face-off circle, as well as maintain a presence in both the offensive and defensive ends of the ice.
Besides the goalie, the center is commonly the most vocal player on the ice due to the fact that he is responsible for directing traffic on every area of the ice.
So lets take a look at the 30 best centers entering next season.
