NHL.coms top 50 fantasy players

http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=6...id=DL|NHL|home

They also ranked the top 40 centres, LW and RW, dmen and goalies. Interesting they rank James Neal as the top LW today. I highlighted the interesting names in bold.

No Kesler, no Miko Koivu, no Bergeron, no Nick Backstrom (C), no Drew Doughty, no Pietrangelo, no Lui Eriksson.

7. Corey Perry, RW
Outlook: Potential for more value as RW clearly has least amount of elite options. In "down" year, Perry still had 37 goals, 127 PIMs, 277 SOG last year and should rebound closer to his outstanding 2010-11 season.
10. James Neal, LW
Outlook: After just 45 points in 2010-11, Neal erupted with 40 G, 41 A and 87 PIMs last year, earning the No. 3 Yahoo! player. Alongside Malkin, top-10 overall production is still possible, just not quite like last year.

18. Rick Nash, LW

Outlook: Goals and points have decreased in each of last four seasons, but Nash is in prime (28) and finally on a contending team -- expect 40 goals again playing with Brad Richards and much improved plus/minus.

19. Scott Hartnell, LW
Outlook: Emerged as elite fantasy player last year with Perry-like production (37 goals, 136 PIMs), but can he replicate? With Giroux at center, 30 goals seem feasible, but expect an almost certain regression.
30. David Backes, C
Outlook: Still extremely underrated, Backes should be good for 25 goals and 55 points with a great plus/minus, around 100 PIMs and has potential to be a top-20 fantasy player -- draft him with confidence.

36. Patrick Marleau, LW

Outlook: Goals and points have declined each of last three seasons, but his 111 goals during that time are fourth most behind Stamkos, Ovechkin and Perry -- expect 30-plus goals and a return to 70 points this year.

38. Joe Pavelski, RW
Outlook: Had career-high 31 goals last year and should surpass 30 goals, 65 points regularly going forward. If he stays on top two lines and continues to see 3-plus minutes of PP time, he could develop into top-30 player.
41. Mike Smith, G
Outlook: Flourished in Phoenix's defensive system and emerged as fourth highest ranked goalie in Yahoo!, but expect stats closer to his career line of 2.56 GAA and .914 SV%, not last year's 2.21 GAA and .930 SV%.
47. Taylor Hall, LW
Outlook: Improved every fantasy category from rookie season to sophomore year and should do so again in 2012-13 -- can be among elite, but needs to prove he can stay healthy (65 and 61 games in first two years).

Misleading title is misleading.


This is the top 50 FANTASY players, not the top 50 players. You have three people posting that have not realized that, and I'm sure there will be more to come. I don't get why people never put "fantasy players" in the title when they make these threads. It always confuses people.

It's fantasy rankings. Not actual rankings.

These are very clearly Fantasy Hockey ratings... Neal and Perry score a lot of Goals so that's why they're rated higher and they're also Wingers which is much less deep than Centers. Patrick Sharp being the highest Blackhawk ahead of Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa should have been a dead giveaway if you didn't notice that already.

This^ PIMs and +/- are stats in a lot of leagues therefore those rankings reflect those stats

You didn't misread it. It was originally "NHL top 50 players", but it's fixed now.

I could tell it was fantasy ratings once I read about Crosby with them mentioning the fantasy position of him.

Anyways, we'll see how these ratings pan out.

Because he had a career high in points and can play both wings? This is for fantasy, and his rank makes a lot of sense because he did all this in his first year with the Pens.

Yeah their ranks are kinda a joke. Pavelski and Seguin are ahead of Kessel, Kane and Eberle in the RW ranks.

And Grabovski, who is 29th among centers in points over the course of the last two seasons, isn't in their top 40 centers.
