We all remember skill...

While many of us may proclaim our love for the gritty, heart and soul, character players, how many of them really get remembered?

Very few.

Ask the fans of virtually any team who it's greatest players were, and the answer will be almost unanimous. It will likely be the most skilled players in the history of the team. The same applies to the question of best play of the year. For Ottawa last year, the answer was easy. It was Jason Spezza dangling his way through an entire team. He even came within a hairsbreadth of winning TSN's POY voting.

We remember skill, we marvel at the otherworldly abilities of players like Alfather, Spezza, Karlsson. Name the greatest players of all time and you will see a list of skilled players. Look no further than the Great One. Ultimate skill. Look at our own Erik Karlsson. Small. Fast as blazes. European. Offensive risk taker.
