Top 20 NHL Right Wingers – 2012

Top 20 NHL Right WingersThe Hockey Fanatic continues our countdown of the top NHL players by position with our look at the top 20 right wingers of the game.  The interesting thing with NHL forwards is that quite often a player can play multiple forward positions.  Look at Rick Nash for example who plays both right and left wing.  (Nash made our list of top 20 left wingers). We polled some hockey fans and asked them who they thought were the top players by position.  Here are the top 20 left wingers for 2012.
