We have a few players who are near the top of the league in terms of fulfilling particular roles.

Staal is one of the best defensive defensemen in the league, but wouldn't be talked about much as one of the "best defensemen" because he doesn't score enough.

Callahan is one of the better two-way forwards in the league. Awesome defensively, and has offense that's coming together. If he had been healthy and producing all year, he'd have quite good offensive numbers, but not good enough to put him in any kind of conversation about the best scorers in the league.

Gaborik, when he's playing the way he did for most of last year, is one of the top 10 forwards in the league.

Prust (who I know you like ) is one of the better body bangers in the league, especially when you look at the fact that he's actually done some scoring this year, to boot.

Lundqvist is Lundqvist. Most talented guy on the team, and pretty much the only one who is in any conversation for "best at his position" league-wide.

We don't have much truly top-end offensive talent anywhere but in goal, and for whatever reason it's offensive talent that gets player noticed and talked about, generally.
