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.

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.
