Comparing recently drafted Centers

This should make for an interesting thread. Given the lists of attributes and the list of players, pick one player that you believe has the best in that category. It's fairly simple. Here is the list of players to pick from. This list includes quite a few of the recently drafted Canadian born centers, and I was wondering which player excels in which areas of his game.

Jason Spezza
Eric Staal
Vincent Lecavalier
Joe Thornton
Patrick Marleau
Nathan Horton
David Legwand

Now, the attributes

Passing:
Stickhandling:
Defense:
Speed:
Puck Handling:
Wrist Shot:
Slap Shot:
Shot Power:
Shot Accuracy:
Hockey Sense:
Work Ethic:
Play Making:
Body Checking:
Stick Checking:
Back Checking:
Forechecking:
Attitude:

I know it's a pretty lengthy list, I just thought it would be pretty fun to rank some of these players in these regards to give people an insight. I'll post mine a little later if this gets any attention, i'm just curious as to what everyone else thinks.

So Lecavalier and Marleau were recently drafted, and Henrik Sedin wasn't?

People, I don't understand some of these responses! If you don't like the list of players mentioned, simply don't respond. It's not as if i'm trying to be mean spirited here, it's just that the list of players listed are the ones i'd like to have information about and if there is another player you'd like to hype up/discuss, then i'm sure there are other threads that would easily accomidate that type of thing. I was simply discussing the players at hand. I wasn't exactly expecting fans of all 30 teams to make individual plugs for their favorite team prospect.

Thanks.
