I like Krutov on the list, even though I bet many have an image of a 'power forward' in their head, when thinking of him. Anyway, great hands, great speed, great 1-on-1 ability.
You wouldn't think a defenseman would normally fall within that group, but I included him because I thought he was a special case. I have a lot of video of him that shows an unusual ability to stickhandle and control the puck while skating at top speed. I realize that his choice is debatable
