Marian Hossa comes to mind. Daniel Alfredsson comes to mind.(17th in Forward scoring last year.) Satan, Iginla, Weight are others.

I would say Iginla for sure. He was pretty dominant in the Edmonton game despite having Stoll et. al wrapped all over him. He is going to have a big year again methinks.

Jerome Iginla, Marian Hossa, Bill Muckalt.

Mr Sakich 10-06-2003 11:51 AM

OMG, thanks

I think I will drop whitney and richards and add iggy and hossa.

any other advice?

btw, i think abescher is going to lead the league in wins this year before blowing it in the first round of the playoffs. He is my sleeper goalie pick.

I'd agree with Hossa, Weight and Iginla. I'd add Sundin and maybe Jason Allison if he can stay healthy... who to drop though? Maybe St Louis? Lindros? Murray? Whitney?

I think Samsonov is going to have a massive year if he manages to stay healthy.. I would definitely drop Whitney/St. Louis to pick him up. Iginla will also likely bounce back and score around 40ish goals..

I don't play regular season pools, but the 2 points for a goal is an interesting twist. These would have been the 30 best guys to take, by this criterion, last year (everybody pro-rated to 82 games):

Code:

1        NASLUND        152
2        HEJDUK        144
3        BERTUZZI        143
4        THORNTON        135
5        MURRAY        132
6        FORSBERG        131
7        DEMITRA        128
8        HOSSA        123
9        PALFFY        122
10        HEATLEY        122
11        LEMIEUX        119
12        FEDOROV        117
13        KOVALEV        114
14        JAGR        113
15        HULL        113
16        MOGILNY        112
17        MODANO        112
18        LECAVALIER        110
19        SUNDIN        109
20        KARIYA        106
21        ALFREDSSON        105
22        ST. LOUIS        103
23        JOKINEN        101
24        WHITNEY        100
25        IGINLA        100
26        PROSPAL        99
27        KOVALCHUK        99
28        SATAN        98
29        SHANAHAN        98
30        MORRISON        96

Heatley is out.

Lemiuex is obviously an injury risk.

A healthy Iginla will probably be in the top five by this scoring system.

Jason Allison top ten if he plays enough.

Tkachuk, when healthy is a good pick to finish top 20 IMO.

With the linemates he'll have ... you'd be crazy not to take Selanne methinks.

Samsonov will rock at this system if he stays healthy.

In no paricular order, these would be my top 25 guesses:

Code:

NASLUND
HEJDUK
BERTUZZI
THORNTON
MURRAY
FORSBERG
DEMITRA
HOSSA
PALFFY
SELANNE
LEMIEUX
FEDOROV
KOVALEV
JAGR
HULL
MOGILNY
MODANO
LECAVALIER
SUNDIN
KARIYA
SAKIC
ALLISON
IGINLA
TKACHUK
SAMSONOV

I'd be a bit leery of coattail-riders like Murray. But it boils down to guessing which guys will stay healthiest of this bunch IMO.

Just my guesses. And I've probably forgotten about someone who had big injury problems last year.
