While there are a few players each year that one can count on to put up really good numbers and be among the best statistically, each year brings up some different players putting themselves into the equation.
This year already is no different.
There's Phil Kessel, who finally seems to be hitting his potential and currently leads the NHL in points, goals and plus/minus rating.
Then there's Nikolai Khabibulin, who is leading in many of the goaltending categories and is arguably the hardest goaltender to beat this year.
It's the same at every position.
Let's take a look at the 10 best players at each of the five positions: goaltender, center, right wing, left wing and defenseman.
