Eric Maltais, who pens Croaks, from the Fantasy Frog, gives you his take on most of the players from a fantasy standpoint. Some may differ from what you find in the DobberHockey Fantasy Guide, but it's good to have several viewpoints.

Player UFA GP G A PTS +/- PIM PP SOG Pct TOI PPTOI
Ladd, Andrew LW CHI 82 15 34 49 26 28 1 195 7.7 14.40 0.40
Ladd has scored, 11, 21, 30, 49 points during his first four seasons. The trend will continue and he'll hit 50 next year and would do even better with a little more power play time.
Laich, Brooks C WAS 82 23 30 53 -1 31 24 185 12.4 17.28 2.63
Laich had a very consistent season as he was solid every single month other than January. Unless he somehow ends up centering Semin, his upside remains in the 50-60 points range.
Lang, Robert C MON X 50 18 21 39 6 36 17 101 17.8 16.86 3.30
Was Montreal's most reliable forward before an injury cut short his season. At 38, he won't be this good again.
Langenbrunner, Jamie RW NJ 81 29 40 69 25 56 17 229 12.7 18.10 3.33
Career best season, expect a small drop in production next season.
Langkow, Daymond C CGY 73 21 28 49 1 20 16 161 13 17.19 3.86
Other than a 77-point one time anomaly, Langkow is usually around the 60-point mark, which is near to where he would have ended up if he hadn't missed 9 games.
Laperriere, Ian RW COL X 74 7 12 19 0 163 0 61 11.5 13.84 0.25
Hasn't had any fantasy value for three years.
Lapierre, Maxim C MON 79 15 13 28 9 76 1 165 9.1 14.80 0.44
Fourth liner extraordinaire gave the Habs more than they expected.
LaRose, Chad RW CAR X 81 19 12 31 6 35 1 171 11.1 15.13 0.47
Larose has steadily improved over his four seasons and there's still a bit of room left.
Latendresse, Guillaume RW MON 56 14 12 26 4 45 4 117 12 13.61 1.52
He'll score 20 goals and 40 points next season.
Lebda, Brett D DET 65 6 10 16 9 48 0 69 8.7 13.65 0.16
He could hit 20 points one of these years.
Lecavalier, Vincent C TB 77 29 38 67 -9 54 24 291 10 20.24 4.24
I think the odds are 50-50 he's traded during the offseason. I also think the odds are 80-20 in favor of him bouncing back in a big way after a very disappointing season.
Lee, Brian D OTT 53 2 11 13 -2 33 3 51 3.9 18.91 1.30
Slowly brought along to become the power play quarterback, it's not for next year yet, but he'll be a regular and has the talent to put up 30 points.
Legwand, David C NSH 73 20 22 42 -3 32 7 175 11.4 19.44 2.73
The 45-point range is the norm for Legwand.
Lehtinen, Jere RW DAL X 48 8 16 24 1 8 7 119 6.7 19.00 3.36
Second consecutive injury filled season for Lehtinen who's becoming a fantasy afterthought.
Leino, Ville LW DET 13 5 4 9 5 6 0 17 29.4 12.71 1.38
Leino showed real potential and he could replace Samuelsson next season and post similar numbers.
Leopold, Jordan D CGY X 83 7 17 24 -15 24 4 107 6.5 18.81 2.27
He was having a decent enough season in Colorado, but didn't produce in Calgary. Don't expect more than 30 points aver again.
Lepisto, Sami D WAS 7 0 4 4 -3 6 3 7 0 19.50 3.70
He'll turn 25 in October so he needs to get an opportunity next season, but that might not happen in Washinton. He could be 40-point defenseman in the right situation.
Letang, Kris D PIT 74 10 23 33 -7 24 11 138 7.2 21.15 3.59
With Gonchar and Whitney out, several people expected big numbers from Letang, but it might have been too much pressure for the kid. He did much better once Gonchar returned and could surpass 45 points next season.
Lidstrom, Nicklas D DET 78 16 43 59 31 30 33 180 8.9 24.82 3.93
Will soon turn 39 so a drop in production isn't a surprise and the trend should continue next year.
Liles, John-Michael D COL 75 12 27 39 -19 31 21 146 8.2 21.54 4.05
Forget about last year's bump in the road, he's a legitimate 40-point blueliner.
Lilja, Andreas D DET 60 2 11 13 13 66 0 60 3.3 17.00 0.04
His career high is 15 points.
Lindstrom, Joakim LW PHO 44 9 11 20 -6 28 9 77 11.7 14.86 2.40
Could produce 45 points, but could just as well give you 25.
Lisin, Enver RW PHO 48 13 8 21 -13 24 2 105 12.4 14.83 2.21
He certainly has talent, but he's a huge defensive liability as his -36 over 78 NHL games attest so it'll hard for him to become a regular.
Little, Bryan C ATL 79 31 20 51 -5 24 20 172 18 16.92 4.01
The sophomore had several ups and downs, but his career is kickstarted and it should be a nice one.
Lombardi, Matthew C PHO 69 14 32 46 13 44 8 177 7.9 17.68 2.25
Lombardi never fulfilled expectations in Calgary, but with 16 points in 19 games in Phoenix, he's started to live up to his potential and I think he'll reach 60 points next year.
Lucic, Milan LW BOS 72 17 25 42 17 136 8 97 17.5 14.94 1.66
More valuable in real life than in fantasy, but has 20 goal potential next season to go along with over 100 penalty minutes.
Lundmark, Jamie RW CGY X 27 8 8 16 2 17 3 50 16 14.03 2.15
A first round pick in 1999, Lundmark has never been able to establish himself, but he's played very well after getting the call in late February. I wouldn't be surprised to see him score 40 points next season, but then again I wouldn't bet on it.
Lupul, Joffrey RW PHI 79 25 25 50 1 58 15 194 12.9 15.68 2.28
He's too inconsistent to expect more.
Lydman, Toni D BUF 80 3 20 23 0 70 5 99 3 21.78 1.19
You can bet he'll finish within the 20-25 point range every year.
