1. Ryan Kesler - leader, 100% leader. Terrific two-way player, guy who can play both the PP and the PK. Love him.
2. Ryan Miller - ignore his mediocre season this year. Guy is a phenomenal goaltender and thrives on the biggest stages. His playoff record is far from indicative of how he's played.
3. Patrick Kane - perhaps the most skilled American born player.
4. Zach Parise - maybe the second most skilled American player. Terrific work ethic, excellent offensive zone ability.
5. Ryan Suter - good in all three zones. Tremendous hockey pedigree.

There's a lot of guys I like. Ryan Callahan, Joe Pavelski, Jack Johnson. Cam Fowler will climb this list in a hurry.
