The Top 175 Fantasy Hockey Players

from the NHL.com Fantasy Hockey Staff, 

Past statistics, potential linemates, injuries and much more are taken into account in producing these selections, but these rankings should be viewed as our experts' opinionated projections of the most valuable players in the League from a fantasy standpoint. Some of our experts value a workhorse goalie over one who will split time with his backup; others prefer an skater who is elite in a few categories to one who is solid in all six.

When it's all said and done, though, these rankings take each expert's stance into account, providing you with a big-picture view of each player's impending fantasy value.

These rankings project value in standard fantasy hockey leagues, which include a 6x4 category scoring system: goals, assists, plus-minus, power-play points, shots on goal, penalty minutes, goalie wins, goals-against-average, save percentage and shutouts.

So, whether you're searching for a goal-scorer, distributor, power-play anchor, PIM producer or a top-tier netminder, our top-175 rankings will give you an edge in your fantasy hockey draft. Stay tuned for Cubeta's in-depth assessment of NHL.com's top-50 overall rankings to be released Friday, September 7.

The All-Time Post Expansion Fantasy Team

from Pete Jensen of NHL.com,

NHL.com now turns back the clock to create a roster strategically stacked with the best statistical seasons—by each position—since the expansion era began in 1967.

GOALTENDERS

1. Martin Brodeur (2006-07 season, New Jersey Devils) 78 appearances, 48 wins, 2.18 GAA, .922 SV%, 12 SO

Brodeur set a record for the highest single-season wins total of all-time, and his compilation of only 23 regulation losses in 78 games is simply incredible. Fantasy owners savored each of his 12 shutouts, while his goals-against-average frustrated opponents on a nightly basis. Brodeur played in all but four games that season—a campaign that will live on for many years to come.

2. Bernie Parent (1973-74 season, Philadelphia Flyers) 73 appearances, 47 wins, 1.89 GAA, N/A SV%, 12 SO

Captured a then-record 47 wins, dropping only 13 contests in that span en route to winning the Vezina Trophy. Save percentage was not a statistic during his days, but his stingy GAA provides more than enough evidence of his sheer dominance. Parent’s wins mark has since been passed by Brodeur, but his earth-shattering numbers that season were unprecedented at that stage of the expansion era.

Sounds Matter With Hockey Video Games

from Cycloniac’s Arena,

When you have a hockey video game with superb gameplay and add custom sounds, you turn a good experience into something special. This is probably what drives me when I make my sound packs. The process of attempting to mirror the atmosphere of a real NHL arena is a tedious one. Compiling the music is one thing, but the trial and error process is another. Sometimes, music can sound great on your computer, but sound horrible on your console. Sometimes, problems such as clipping or the volume of tracks being too low can also occur. These are the things that music pack makers must handle.

About 2 years ago, adding reverb to your tracks worked great, since NHL 10 barely added any of its own reverb. But now, NHL 12 fixed that, causing all of the reverbed files on my computer to sound off in game. What to do? This means that I will have to run a complete overhaul of my music pack, re-doing the tracks without reverb. While this may be time consuming, I can ensure that all of my music files are HQ or HD. Additionally, I can update any outstanding team introductions, so they are current.

Fantasy Hockey Tips for a New Season

From Sean McIndoe at the National Post:

If your fantasy league is drafting this week, here are some tips to keep in mind to help you come away with your best roster ever:

• When forecasting year-end point totals, don’t forget to factor in that every player in the league is expected to miss at least 20 games this season due to suspensions from Brendan Shanahan.

• Just because a player has never had more than 25 points in a season is no reason not to draft him just as highly as players who regularly score twice that, according to Kyle Turris’s agent.
