A new No. 1: McDavid edges Crosby in TSN's Top 50 player poll

A new No. 1: McDavid edges Crosby in TSN's Top 50 player poll

Not even back-to-back Conn Smythe trophies were enough for Sidney Crosby to hold off Connor McDavid for one more year.

For the first time in the eight-year history of TSNs Top 50 player poll, Crosby was knocked off his perch as the projected No. 1 player in the NHL, as decided by a panel of 22 TSN experts.

The 20-year-old McDavid bested Sid the 30-year-old Kid, earning 59 per cent of first-place votes just one year after Crosby attracted 100 per cent of first-place votes for the first time during his seven-year run of absolute dominance.

Maple Leafs phenom Auston Matthews was the Top 50's biggest climber, going from off the board all the way up to No. 10 after his Calder Trophy-winning 40-goal campaign. Winnipeg's Mark Scheifele rose from No. 50 to No. 15 after his eye-catching 82-point season and Nikita Kucherov gained 20 spots from No. 27 to No. 7 after being one of just nine players league-wide to best a point-per-game average.

If the NHL's only 100-point scorer was voting, though, McDavid said Crosby would be his choice for the games top player " even though hundreds of his peers voted for him for the Ted Lindsay Award as the leagues most outstanding player last June.

In my mind, I definitely think its Sid, McDavid said at the NHLs Player Media Tour earlier this month. It is humbling to see those rankings that TSN puts out. Its a huge honour. I definitely dont take it for granted or anything like that, I just happen to think a little differently. Thats just the way it is.
