Every season, TSN puts out a list of the top 50 players in the National Hockey League. Just like last season, Pittsburgh Penguins' captain Sidney Crosby tops the rankings. He's followed by teammate Evgeni Malkin in this edition, with another familiar face coming in third. That's right; the guy who decked Crosby in the playoffs last season comes in at third place in this year's TSN rankings; Claude Giroux. The 25-year-old Flyers' forward was ranked 25th last season, so it's nice to see that he's gaining a lot of respect somewhere that isn't Philadelphia. Giroux was the only Flyers' player that made the list. C.J. Burns is a contributor to Buzz on Broad. Follow him @CJBurns215
