The Top 215 Keeper League Fantasy Hockey Prospects - February edition

 

 

 

Here is the list of Top 215 prospects to own in your deep fantasy pool. This is not a reflection of a player’s actual upside in the NHL, but more of an indicator of his value in pools. It takes into account how many years away from the NHL a player is, as well as his upside. A potential 70-point player who is two years away is more valuable than a potential 80-point player who is four years away. Hockey pools with 300 or more players drafted should have most of the top 50 on the below list on one of the teams. Pools that are even deeper than that, may find some use in the rest of this list. Pools with 250 players may find use in only the top 20 or 30.As with the Fantasy Player list – these players are evaluated only for their offensive potential, and not for their penalty minutes, plus/minus or defense, etc. Goalies are not included in this list either.

 

My Prospect Ratings are NOT the same as my Fantasy Ratings, although Fantasy Ratings are taken into account. The term 'prospect' is simply my opinion, and I followed no rules to say whether or not the player is actually a prospect other than age (under 27), and the player must belong to an NHL team.

Updated the 10th, of every month.

Key
o = offensive
t = two-way
p = power forward
d = defenseman
os = offensive (small player)

Wow...Mike Hoffman should be much higher than #58. He is leading rookies in goal scoring. And that's all with about 13min of ice time. I understand that he wasn't even on the map last year but his skillset is more fantasy worthy. I would think he is now ahead of Mark Stone on the list. That's a good comparable because they play for the same team.

Quoting sasquatch:
Still no Christian Dvorak?? He was recently rated 7th by Craig Button at TSN... 7th seems far too high, but not top 215.. come on, surely thats an oversight


Yes, an oversight. I have him at 219, but adjusted him and next update he'll be on the posted list.

number54 - I know, I didn't take offense, I was just bustin your balls. They're gone from this list. I remember last month himming and hawwing on those three before deciding to just leave them in
#21 number54 2015-02-16 21:51
Oh, it's not "knives out" at all! I was just surprised you didn't graduate all those guys because, like I said, I can't believe there's anybody out there who thinks these kids are getting sent down again. Just, they've all been such big parts of their teams' successes! So I figured if that's not why they're still here, you must know something else about 'em that's keeping them on this list. Apparently not...

Ehlers should be top 20 easily

He jumped a lot this month (I'm still finishing it up)

Quoting thegutter:
is tomas tatar not in the top 300 because he's not that good or because he's not a prospect?

Not a prospect

Quoting number54:
There have to be a solid 5 guys on here that should have graduated by now (at least IMO): Forsberg, Gaudreau, Pearson, Strome and Lee. I'm not buying for a second that you think any of them is ever riding the bus again. If you're not 100% sure about any of these guys, I'd love to hear your misgivings.

I don't have any misgivings, though Pearson will probably go for a rehab stint (so he stays). When I become certain they won't go down, I give them a couple more months because it can't hurt. Put the knives away! lol
