from Mat Cubeta, one of the NHL.com Fantasy Insiders,
Positional ranking based on combination of last season's Yahoo! Fantasy Hockey position assignments and NHL.com's 30 in 30 lineup projections. Ranking reflects each player's fantasy value, taking into account statistical history, performance in default Yahoo! categories (G, A, +/-, PIM, PPP, SOG), potential future lineup placement, strength of projected linemates and most importantly, our expectations of how they will perform this coming season.
|1.||Sidney Crosby, C|
Outlook: Our unanimous No. 1 player, health is only question, but he's worth the risk regardless. His 1.61 points-per-game in past 99 games are far-and-away best in NHL and peripherals are all outstanding.
|2.||Steven Stamkos, C|
Outlook: No player has more goals (134), PPG (39) or points (245) over past three seasons -- will also be good for around 300 shots on goal and 60-70 PIMs. Will thrive alongside Martin St. Louis.
|3.||Alex Ovechkin, RW|
Outlook: Bounced back in big way last year to lead NHL in goals and PPP and finished third in points – the move to RW and playing under Adam Oates looks to have helped. A return to 40-plus goals seems likely.
