from Brian Compton of NHL.com,
Who are the best 14 players in the NHL at each position as teams prepare for the start of the 2014-15 season? Arpon Basu, Brian Compton, Corey Masisak and Dan Rosen have cast their votes and the result is NHL.com's "Top 14 for '14-15" project....
1. Alex Ovechkin, Washington Capitals, 52 points (1 first-place vote) 2013-14: 51 goals, 79 points, 78 games played
Ovechkin will be playing for yet another coach (Barry Trotz) when training camp opens, but he continues to produce regardless of who is behind the bench. The 28-year-old scored 51 goals for Adam Oates last season and now has 422 goals in 679 games, all with the Capitals.
2. Corey Perry, Anaheim Ducks, 51 points (1) 2013-14: 43 goals, 82 points, 81 games played
Ovechkin was the only player in the NHL who scored more goals than Perry last season; it marked the second time in Perry's career that he scored at least 40 goals. He followed with 11 points (four goals, seven assists) in 13 Stanley Cup Playoff games.
