2004 - Ovechkin
1998 - Lecavalier
2011 - RNH
2010 - Hall
2002 - Nash
2012 - Yakupov
1999 - Stefan

*caveat: It's way too early on RNH and Yakupov, in my opinion, but I gave it a shot.
Skill is not brain, it's basically the combination of skating, shooting, passing.

In that department Crosby (of course), Kovalchuk, Ovechkin and Nash should make the top of the list.
