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
MacArthur, Clarke LW BUF 71 17 14 31 -4 56 10 108 15.7 13.83 1.75
Didn't do much after the new year with one goal and six points from January 1st until March 7. He did score five goals in the last eight games so that's a positive sign.
Madden, John C NJ X 76 7 16 23 -7 26 0 132 5.3 16.42 0.15
The worst season of his nine year career, he should get back to 30 points next season.
Mair, Adam RW BUF 75 8 11 19 4 95 0 75 10.7 10.58 0.17
His career high is 20 points, enough said.
Malhotra, Manny C CLB X 77 11 24 35 9 28 6 116 9.5 18.01 1.08
Reached a career high point production.
Malkin, Evgeni C PIT 82 35 78 113 17 80 41 290 12.1 22.51 5.56
Will challenge for the scoring title for at least the next 7 years.
Malone, Ryan LW TB 70 26 19 45 4 98 11 124 21 17.75 3.27
I wasn't a believer, but Malone earned my respect with a season very similar to last year.
Mara, Paul D NYR X 76 5 16 21 2 94 11 102 4.9 18.96 2.66
Forget about his 40-point days, he simply a 20-25 point guy now.
Marchant, Todd C ANA X 72 5 13 18 -2 34 1 101 5 14.53 0.39
He has become a one dimensional player and that dimension ain't offense.
Markov, Andrei D MON 78 12 52 64 -2 36 39 165 7.3 24.63 5.16
Might be the second best offensive defenseman in the NHL after Mike Green.
Marleau, Patrick C SJ 76 38 33 71 16 18 18 251 15.1 21.35 3.91
Posted a career high 38 goals and averaged almost a point per game despite scoring only five goals and eight points in his last 20 games. I don't expect him to score as many goals again, but 60 to 70 points sounds right.
Martin, Paul D NJ 73 5 28 33 21 36 18 107 4.7 24.37 3.34
Clearly won't become more than a 35-point producer.
Mayers, Jamal RW TOR 71 7 9 16 -7 82 1 72 9.7 10.54 0.16
Not hired for his offense, but 25 points are expected.
McAmmond, Dean LW NYI X 62 5 11 16 7 24 0 59 8.5 11.27 0.07
A role player who'll be lucky to be ever each 30 points again.
McCabe, Bryan D FLA 69 15 24 39 -1 41 19 153 9.8 23.15 4.73
If Bouwmeester leaves Florida, McCabe will play an even larger role next season.
McClement, Jay C STL 82 12 14 26 -10 29 0 137 8.8 16.60 0.18
Does a good job as a defensive specialist, but you can't expect more than 30 points.
McCormick, Cody C COL 55 1 11 12 -5 92 0 66 1.5 9.60 0.10
He'll spend his entire career between the NHL and the AHL.
McDonald, Andy C STL 46 15 29 44 -13 24 19 128 11.7 19.08 3.91
Proved he could perform without Selanne.
McLean, Brett C FLA 80 7 12 19 -11 29 1 114 6.1 12.43 0.80
Extremely disappointing since he has the talent to score 40 points.
McLeod, Cody LW COL 79 15 5 20 -11 162 0 118 12.7 11.58 0.39
15 goals from a guy with 150 penalty minutes, not bad at all.
Meszaros, Andrej D TB 52 2 14 16 -4 36 5 87 2.3 24.19 2.57
What a huge bust! Was totally miscast as the leader on defense.
Methot, Marc D CLB 66 4 13 17 7 55 0 58 6.9 17.95 0.15
Will never score a lot.
Metropolit, Glen RW MON 76 6 11 17 -6 28 1 82 7.3 12.60 0.18
Seventh NHL team and he's probably not done yet.
Michalek, Milan RW SJ 77 23 34 57 11 52 19 179 12.8 18.45 2.69
Three straight season of 23 to 26 goals and 55 to 66 points, you know what you'll be getting.
Michalek, Zbynek D PHO 82 6 21 27 -13 28 0 106 5.7 22.71 0.66
Was his usual self following an off season last year.
Miettinen, Antti LW MIN 82 15 29 44 -1 32 13 186 8.1 18.28 2.49
He scored 19 points in the first 22 games, 3 in the last 19. I don't see him ever scoring 50 points.
Mitchell, John C TOR 76 12 17 29 -16 33 6 98 12.2 13.80 1.04
Did as well as Kulemin, but doesn't have his upside.
Mitchell, Willie D VAN 82 3 20 23 29 59 0 88 3.4 22.92 0.23
Career high point production, he's usually good for only 10 to 15 points.
Modano, Mike C DAL 80 15 31 46 -13 46 18 197 7.6 18.30 3.70
I don't think we'll see Modano hit 50 points again.
Modin, Fredrik LW CLB 50 9 16 25 2 28 7 113 8 16.88 2.88
Modin is nothing more than a 40-point player anymore.
Moen, Travis LW SJ X 82 7 9 16 -18 91 0 101 6.9 14.99 0.18
See Mike Grier.
Moller, Oscar C LA 40 7 8 15 -3 16 9 81 8.6 13.37 2.87
An eventful year for Moller with the World Juniors, a fractured clavicle and a slew of games from the stands in the last month. Expect a big improvement next season.
Montador, Steve D BOS X 78 4 17 21 17 143 1 117 3.4 16.16 1.05
Nice enough production for a defenseman with over 100 penalty minutes.
Moore, Dominic C BUF X 81 13 32 45 -2 92 9 165 7.9 16.83 1.64
Hearing is name mentioned so often at the trade deadline you'd have thought we were talking about a top line center.
Moreau, Ethan LW EDM 77 14 12 26 0 133 0 159 8.8 15.36 0.21
Nice comeback after missing most of the last two seasons to injuries. Don't forget about him in deep roto leagues that value PIMs and shots on goal.
Morris, Derek D NYR X 75 5 15 20 -10 40 5 120 4.2 20.89 2.31
Is now a 20-25 point player.
Morrison, Brendan C DAL X 81 16 15 31 3 32 7 111 14.4 14.21 2.22
Was awful in Anaheim, but was his usual self in Dallas. Value will be tied to his role next season, but I'm not counting on him for 50 points.
Morrisonn, Shaone D WAS 72 3 10 13 4 77 0 50 6 18.00 0.05
This is what he produces year in and year out.
Morrow, Brenden LW DAL 18 5 10 15 -4 49 5 52 9.6 21.35 4.96
He'll be back to his old self, I'm not worried.
Moss, David LW CGY 81 20 19 39 -5 22 11 194 10.3 13.60 1.84
I thought he could deliver this kind of production last year, but better late than never.
Mottau, Mike D NJ 80 1 14 15 24 35 1 71 1.4 17.78 0.75
It will be an achievement if he ever reaches 20 points.
Mueller, Peter C PHO 72 13 23 36 -7 24 11 138 9.4 16.08 3.40
Huge step back from the 22 goals and 54 points he produced as a rookie. Chalk it up to the sophomore jinx and expect 60 points next season.
Murphy, Cory D TB X 32 5 11 16 -4 14 10 55 9.1 17.96 4.09
Had 15 points in 25 games in Tampa Bay before an injury cut short his season. The Lightning desperately need a power play quarterback so he could be a very nice sleeper for 2009-10 if he re-signs.
