Stamkos
Backstrom
Spezza
Koivu
Datsyuk

Some maybes like
Backes
Mike Richards
Pavelski
Plekanec
Bergeron
RNH (he'll be a definite soon enough)
Duchene
Roy

And frankly I'm bored of coming up with more
Giroux is a centreman? The only reason why he played the wing was due to an overflow at centre. With Richards and Carter gone, he's their undisputed number 1.

I'll agree though, theres 15 there and 14 teams represented. That means 16 teams are without a true number 1. I was just making the point that because a player is a default number 1 on his team, doesn't make him a number 1 by defintion.

The second group I see as more solid number twos, with the exception of Pavelski who was moved to wing last year due to the emergence of Logan Couture as the Sharks 2nd C.
