Editor's note: These rankings are based on player production in terms of Hockey Prospectus' GVT valuation metric. If you are unfamiliar with GVT and how it works, you can find more here.

Every week, Hockey Prospectus will provide updated Player Power Rankings for the top 10 skaters and top five goalies in the NHL based on HP's proprietary value metric GVT, a statistic that combines player contributions in all aspects of the game, including defense, goaltending and the shootout. The data presented here includes a value for offensive GVT, defensive GVT, shootout GVT and overall GVT (stats through Saturday).

Sidney Crosby maintains his lead as the No. 1 skater this week, while Tyler Seguin makes his debut in the top 10.


Top 10 skaters

1. Sidney Crosby, F, Pittsburgh Penguins
Off GVT: 17.3 | Def GVT: 2.6 | Shootout GVT: 0.3 | Total GVT: 20.2
Previous ranking: 1

Although it's hard to find fault with Crosby's game, here's one: His even-strength points have dropped significantly from the pace of the past three seasons, when he averaged 1.12 even-strength points per game. He's at 0.84 even-strength points per game this season.
