The Metro Division has a list of superb players who are some of the best the NHL has to offer. Over the next few days, we’ll take a look at who they are by position. Rather than ranking each team which most have been doing since July, that’ll wait until preseason. There’s plenty of time for predictions in what should be a very competitive division.

So, who are the Metro’s best? With elite talent featuring Eastern stars Sidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin, Henrik Lundqvist, John Tavares, Claude Giroux, Evgeni Malkin, Jakub Voracek, Rick Nash, Cory SchneiderKris Letang, Nicklas Backstrom and Ryan McDonagh, there’s plenty to choose from. With Phil Kessel and Brandon Saad now in the division, it’ll only get better.

We’ll start at center and work our way up. For forwards, I’ll rank the top 10 including left wing and right wing. The same number for defensemen. Goalies will be a shorter list. It should make looking forward to training camp fun.
