The Top 50

from Wes Goldstein at CBS Sportsline,

Crosby has already transcended the sport with appearances on Jay Leno and award shows, and he has become a ubiquitous product endorser in Canada, not to mention the creator of a clothing line. His profile in the U.S. is not quite as high, although it is starting to grow. It doesn’t hurt that he is on a great young team, one that has the potential to develop quickly into a dynasty.

Crosby is the biggest reason for that and an easy choice for us as the league’s top player. Here’s the rest of the list. Let the arguments begin.

1. Sidney Crosby, C: How many pro athletes do you know who actually managed to exceed the kind of hype Crosby has had for years right off the bat? The scary thing is that he just turned 20.

2. Alexander Ovechkin, LW: He “slumped” last season with 46 goals and 92 points when opponents always keyed on his one-man show. This season, there will be supporting talent in Washington.
