Who's the most exciting player to watch in the NHL?

Who is the most exciting player to watch in the league? Try not to delve into who's a better player discussions here.. if intangibles are mentioned in this thread I'll report everything, everything, everything and everything.

If I were a neutral fan the player I'd be most excited to watch after Ovechkin's downfall is Erik Karlsson. He just produces so much offense in comparison to other defensemen its crazy. Crosby, Malkin and Stamkos are great, but they have people just as good as them in the league in what they do.

Patrick Kane is also helluva an exciting player to watch and I also love watching the Sedins play.

They are not as explosive as Crosby or Kane but I think the Sedin's are one of the most pleasing players to watch play the game since Gretzky for me. The way they pass and think the game is really a marvel to behold. Obviously a lot of the stars in the league can get you out of your seat but I often find myself just shaking my head at what these guys can do.

Not for me.
I love watching the little things that Crosby does and the intensity he plays with as well as the exciting plays he makes. He does things on a nightly basis that no one else does.
I grew up watching Gretzky and Crosby while not at that level just does things that Gretzky alone could do.

Kessel for his shot.
Crosby, Kane and Datsyuk for their magical hands.
Kronwall or Phaneuf for their hits.
Thomas because he makes the most incredible saves.
Eberle because he's so clutch

Sidney Crosby, he is the best player in the league and it is simply a treat to watch him.

Homer pick: Brian Little has been really fun to watch so far this season. Being put back onto the wing postions seems to have upped his tempo.

And Nash. Beasting and I'm sure he'll start getting them points.
