Kukla's Korner Hockey

The Best Player In The NHL

from Al Strachan of the Toronto Sun,
But if a player is to be judged the best in a time when there is no clear-cut megastar, he probably has to excel at the most difficult position. That would mean he's a defenceman. And the best defenceman? The two guys in Anaheim, Chris Pronger and Scott Niedermayer are certainly on the list. Young Matthew Carle in San Jose is opening a lot of eyes in the hockey world and the even younger Dion Phaneuf in Calgary is a phenomenal talent. But in this corner, the vote for the best player in the world at the moment would go to Nicklas Lidstrom of the Detroit Red Wings.
