The first people who come to mind are:
1 - Deflecting shots - Ryan Smyth, Keith Tkachuk
2 - Backhand shot - Paul Kariya (truly scary)
3 - Leadership - Steve Yzerman, Joe Sakic
4 - Durability - name any banger defensman or gritty forward who doesn't get injured a lot. They're all equally deserving of respect IMO.
5 - Stickhandling - no contest... Alex Kovalev. His problem is, he *knows* it's no contest and so gets himself into stupid situations.
6 - 'Energy Player' - Ryan Smyth, Adam Deadmarsh of old
7 - Faceoffs - another category with lot's of standouts....
8 - Protecting the puck - Jagr by a mile
9 - Agressiveness - Adam Foote
9a - Fear factor - Darien Hatcher, Stu Grimson of old
10 - Skating - Marian Gaborik is amazing.
You forgot one category...
11 - Best Hands - Milan Hejduk, Jagr
