In the third installment of NHL Power Rankings by position, I'm taking a look at the 10 best left wings in the NHL today. But first, a few ground rules: In order to qualify as a "left wing," the player must be listed on NHL.com's 2010-11 regular season statistics page as a LW and have played a minimum of one full NHL season (80-plus career NHL games).
Beyond that, I've taken into account a number of factors when crafting this list: offensive skill and production, defensive play, intangibles (face-offs, blocked shots, etc.), clutch play and leadership, to name a few.
And without further ado, here they are: the 10 best left wings in the NHL today. Enjoy
