This is simply pulling defensemen out of the regular 'Rankings' list and adding a few more at the bottom. Ratings are a reflection of a player's trade value in 'rollover' fantasy hockey pools. They reflect a players predicted points, historical points, injury risk, team "reputation/potential powerhouse" value, powerplay time, and long-term potential.  Basically, if you are in a keeper league, this is my opinion based on my statistical model of a player's 'trade value'.  Naturally, individual trades would depend on the direction you are taking with your team at the present.

What about Paul Martin?
#6 CallMeJerry 2014-12-09 08:53
On the next list, does Ekblad enter the top 20, the top 10? He's having a historically good year.
#5 BDog 2014-11-18 02:53
Maatta wasn't missed but at #55 I'm left scratching my head. He is going to make more than a few fantasy GM's wonder why they didn't act sooner. Loads of talent, great work ethic and an opportunity to play with some incredible talent.
#4 DobberManiac 2014-11-06 18:21
how is Andy Greene left off this list? after what he did last year behind the same players on the depth chart, he continues to see 2PP time.

I answered this in the forum, but basically he should be around 60 or 70. It's a flaw in the formula that punishes 40-point players (or lower-point players like that) if they are injured for a couple of months. And he is out until December
#2 MacLiii 2014-09-05 03:26
Did you miss Olli Maata or is he really ranked lower than the last few on the list?
#1 Excelsior 2014-07-15 14:46
There are a few players listed twice- Tyutin- 101 & 94,
Nurse 84 & 101, Reinhart 90 & 101.
