I've always figured that "top 6 forward" meant a forward who played one of the top 2 lines. Since there are 30 teams and 6 forwards on the top 2 lines, that would mean there are 180 "top 6 forwards" in the league, so any forwards ranked in the top 180 are technically "top 6 forwards".

By that definition, the Preds usually have somewhere between 5 and 9 "top 6 forwards" at any given time. Last year it was 5, 2 years ago it was 9.
