Mandatory Credit: Perry Nelson-USA TODAY SportsSidney Crosby is probably as good as he has ever been right now. For that reason he leapfrogged back to number 1 in my NHL players rankings and has been the leader of it for every bi-week except for one. That is not to say Alex Steen, November 29’s number one, is slowing down. In fact, Steen has been putting up great all-round numbers as of late. Patrick Kane also turned on the jets to sky rocket to number 2 due to his impressive 14 points in his last 7 games. Here are my December 13’s player rankings with Nov 29 in brackets:
