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.

UFA GP G A PTS +/- PIM PP SOG Pct TOI PPTOI
Sakic, Joe C COL X 15 2 10 12 -6 6 6 46 4.3 18.11 4.77
I don't think he wants to end his career like this, but with the situation in Colorado not pretty, you never know since I don't see him signing elsewhere.
Salei, Ruslan D COL 70 4 17 21 -4 72 7 93 4.3 21.11 2.55
Typical Salei production.
Salo, Sami D VAN 60 5 20 25 5 26 14 110 4.5 20.18 3.19
Salo can play, but you can count on him missing 20 games every year.
Salvador, Bryce D NJ 76 3 13 16 -1 78 0 68 4.4 19.48 0.07
Career best production so you know you can't expect more.
Samsonov, Sergei LW CAR 81 16 32 48 -8 28 19 155 10.3 17.33 3.31
I don't trust Samsonov, he's more likely to give you 40 points than he his to give you 60.
Samuelsson, Mikael RW DET X 81 19 21 40 0 50 20 257 7.4 15.37 2.74
Put him down for 40 points year in and year out.
Sarich, Cory D CGY 76 2 18 20 12 112 1 57 3.5 17.90 0.49
Career high production, but only valued in very deep leagues because of PIMs.
Satan, Miroslav RW PIT X 65 17 19 36 3 36 11 120 14.2 15.75 2.89
A huge bust who might be headed for Europe.
Savard, Marc C BOS 82 25 63 88 25 70 30 213 11.7 19.53 3.71
Expect him to remain a top-10 scorer next season.
Schenn, Luke D TOR 70 2 12 14 -12 71 1 102 2 21.53 0.27
The points will always be a bonus with Schenn.
Schneider, Mathieu D MON X 67 9 23 32 -12 64 18 128 7 21.00 3.66
Played extremely well in Montreal, but he will turn 40 this summer. Still could he score 40 at 40? Don't count him out, he's in great shape.
Schremp, Rob C EDM 4 0 3 3 2 2 0 3 0 13.66 2.83
Had a difficult AHL season with only seven goals in 66 games. He's be better off heading for Europe.
Scuderi, Rob D PIT X 81 1 15 16 23 18 0 51 2 19.16 0.06
20-point ceiling if he gets lucky.
Seabrook, Brent D CHI 82 8 18 26 23 62 8 132 6.1 23.32 2.34
Seabrook's offense has not evolved has expected, he should bounce back to 30+ points next year. He has the talent to score 40, but there's too much depth on defense in Chicago.
Sedin, Daniel LW VAN X 82 31 51 82 24 36 24 285 10.9 18.79 3.97
Sedins were the top duo this season sharing points on 58 goals.
Sedin, Henrik C VAN X 82 22 60 82 22 48 26 143 15.4 19.52 4.01
I can't imagine Vancouver not signing them to long term contracts.
Seidenberg, Dennis D CAR X 70 5 25 30 -9 37 11 129 3.9 22.34 2.76
Half his points came in October and November. Don't expect a repeat performance.
Sekera, Andrej D BUF 69 3 16 19 -11 22 5 84 3.6 20.70 1.55
Has not lived up to his potential.
Selanne, Teemu RW ANA 65 27 27 54 -3 36 28 186 14.5 16.49 3.61
Finally starting to show his age, I don't expect he'll bounce back.
Semin, Alexander LW WAS 62 34 45 79 25 77 30 223 15.2 19.23 4.00
Prorated over 82 games his production would give 104 points. I just don't see either, the 104 points or the 82 games.
Setoguchi, Devin RW SJ 81 31 34 65 16 25 23 246 12.6 16.21 2.64
He was a surprise, but he has the creds so he's for real. Just don't expect him to step to another level just yet.
Shanahan, Brendan LW NJ X 34 6 8 14 -2 29 3 77 7.8 14.89 2.54
Doesn't have much left so he will probably retire.
Shannon, Ryan C OTT 35 8 12 20 -1 2 7 61 13.1 15.07 2.47
Could finally score 50 points.
Sharp, Patrick C CHI 61 26 18 44 6 41 18 184 14.1 17.97 3.91
Was on his way to another 40-goal season before slowing down in early January, then he missed over a month to injury, but proved last year was no fluke.
Sheppard, James C MIN 82 5 19 24 -14 41 3 88 5.7 15.18 1.05
Didn't really progress in his second season, but doesn't receive much power play time. He needs to take a step forward next year and reach 40 points.
Sillinger, Mike C NYI X 7 2 0 2 -5 0 1 14 14.3 14.20 1.77
Hip surgery ruined his season, but could score 40-50 points if he comes back healthy.
Sim, Jon LW NYI 49 9 6 15 -12 42 3 90 10 12.18 1.51
His days as an NHLer are almost over.
Simmonds, Wayne RW LA 82 9 14 23 -8 73 5 127 7.1 13.84 0.25
A solid debut after making the jump from junior hockey, should improve gradually over the next few years.
Sjostrom, Fredrik RW NYR 79 7 6 13 -11 30 0 95 7.4 12.17 0.10
There is absolutely no upside here.
Skoula, Martin D MIN X 81 4 12 16 -12 10 0 55 7.3 19.97 0.21
Once thought to have 40-point upside, you're now lucky he if reaches 20.
Skrastins, Karlis D FLA X 80 4 14 18 9 30 0 55 7.3 20.56 0.08
Most probably will never reach 20 points in a season.
Slater, Jim C ATL 60 8 10 18 0 52 0 94 8.5 11.24 0.07
The 2002 former first round pick will probably never amount to anything.
Smid, Ladislav D EDM 60 0 11 11 -6 57 0 33 0 14.95 0.16
Will always be known as the key player received in the Pronger deal, but will never have any fantasy value.
Smithson, Jerred C NSH 82 4 9 13 -6 49 0 74 5.4 13.85 0.07
Four straight year scoring between 12 and 16 points.
Smyth, Ryan LW COL 77 26 33 59 -15 62 20 257 10.1 20.29 4.03
Rebounded after a difficult 2007-08. Expect this kind of production for another couple of years.
Sopel, Brent D CHI 23 1 1 2 -4 8 0 15 6.7 13.81 0.10
Injuries are rendering him useless, but even if healthy there's too much talent in front of him on the Chicago blue line for him to contribute much.
Souray, Sheldon D EDM 81 23 30 53 1 98 23 268 8.6 24.83 4.91
This is what the Oilers paid for and what he'll provide when healthy.
Spacek, Jaroslav D BUF X 80 8 37 45 2 38 22 130 6.2 22.27 3.69
The exact level of production expected. The Sabres really need to sign him.
Spezza, Jason C OTT 82 32 41 73 -14 79 31 246 13 19.69 4.28
Very disappointing season, would not be a surprise to see him change address during the off-season.
St. Louis, Martin RW TB 82 30 50 80 4 14 25 262 11.5 21.27 4.61
With Stamkos in town, he'll continue to produce even if the Lightning trade Lecavalier.
Staal, Eric C CAR 82 40 35 75 15 50 24 372 10.8 21.05 4.26
Salvaged his season after a very poor first half. His career is taking a good year/off year tendency so expect a good one next season, which means around 85 points.
Staal, Jordan C PIT 82 22 27 49 5 37 6 166 13.3 19.85 2.32
Nice comeback following a rough sophomore season. He'll continue to improve next season and I expect him to score 30 goals.
Staal, Marc D NYR 82 3 12 15 -7 64 1 96 3.1 21.13 0.51
Very solid defenseman...and the key word here is defense.
Stafford, Drew RW BUF 79 20 25 45 3 29 17 183 10.9 15.63 2.62
I expected a little more from Stafford, but he's improving and will continue to do so next season.
Staios, Steve D EDM 80 2 12 14 -5 92 0 78 2.6 19.78 0.26
Hey the Oilers can't carry only 40-point defensemen.
Stajan, Matt C TOR 76 15 40 55 -4 54 11 114 13.2 16.93 2.36
Take out the 20 points he scored over 15 game period from late October to late November and you see why you can't trust Stajan.
Stamkos, Steven C TB 79 23 23 46 -13 39 17 181 12.7 14.94 2.84
Mark my words, 35 goals and 80 points for Stamkos in 2009-10.
Stastny, Paul C COL 45 11 25 36 -9 22 19 118 9.3 21.24 4.09
Injuries ruined his season, but he'll be back. Will go lower than he should in most drafts next season.
Steckel, Dave LW WAS 76 8 11 19 2 34 0 103 7.8 13.81 0.09
Typical third/fourth liner who probably will never top 30 points.
Steen, Alexander C STL 81 8 20 28 -10 30 10 148 5.4 16.34 1.58
This was the year in needed to breakout, now I don't think it will ever happen.
Stempniak, Lee RW TOR 75 14 30 44 -12 33 13 171 8.2 16.54 2.85
Clearly will always fare in the 40 to 50 points range.
Sterling, Brett LW ATL 6 1 0 1 -3 2 0 11 9.1 13.89 1.86
The former college star has declined each of the last two seasons in the AHL after scoring 55 goals three years ago.
Stewart, Anthony C FLA 59 2 5 7 -6 34 0 56 3.6 7.65 0.03
The 2003 first rounder is looking more and more like he'll be a total bust.
Stewart, Chris RW COL 53 11 8 19 -18 54 4 98 11.2 12.32 1.14
Not showing much, but has the talent to score 20 goals in 2009-10.
Stillman, Cory C FLA 63 17 32 49 1 37 21 115 14.8 16.59 3.63
Can still score 60 points over a full season.
Stoll, Jarret C LA 74 18 23 41 -7 68 22 155 11.6 17.09 3.20
Stoll's 68-point season is 2005-06 was obviously an anomaly but he his capable of 50 points.
Stortini, Zack RW EDM 52 6 5 11 -3 181 0 23 26.1 7.31 0.06
Delivers the PIMs as expected.
Stralman, Anton D TOR 38 1 12 13 -2 20 5 43 2.3 15.57 2.65
If the Leafs trade Kaberle, Stralman will become a key member of the power play and could produce more than 40 points.
Streit, Mark D NYI 74 16 40 56 6 62 29 150 10.7 25.21 5.16
He's achieved that level pretty much by himself no reason he can't top 60 points as the team improves.
Stuart, Brad D DET 67 2 13 15 -3 26 1 105 1.9 20.22 0.33
Just like in LA last year, there's just too much depth in Detroit to allow him to be a factor.
Stuart, Mark D BOS 82 5 12 17 20 76 1 61 8.2 15.41 0.05
A very good blueliner with a 25-point ceiling.
Sturm, Marco LW BOS 19 7 6 13 9 8 5 45 15.6 16.03 3.23
Should be back for the start of next season, but was never great so it will be tough for him to get back to the 50-point mark.
Sullivan, Steve RW NSH X 41 11 21 32 2 30 10 83 13.3 18.49 3.57
Looks like his back is holding, but remains a huge gamble. Very late round gamble in fantasy drafts.
Sundin, Mats C VAN X 41 9 19 28 -5 28 14 84 10.7 16.85 3.35
Sundin can still play, but he's lost a step so I'm not sure he'll find the desire to come back for one more.
Suter, Ryan D NSH 82 7 38 45 -16 73 18 143 4.9 24.26 3.87
Improved each year over his four seasons, will score between 40 and 50 points on a regular basis.
Sutherby, Brian C DAL 59 8 7 15 1 71 0 67 11.9 10.91 0.12
He never did achieve his first-round pick potential and never will.
Svatos, Marek RW COL 69 14 20 34 -6 34 13 140 10 13.11 2.27
Inconsistent and a true band-aid boy, he's not worth the risk.
Sydor, Darryl D DAL X 73 3 12 15 3 18 3 73 4.1 18.22 1.53
Winding down a nice career during which he had four seasons of at least 46 points.
Sykora, Petr RW PIT X 76 25 21 46 3 36 19 180 13.9 16.29 3.75
You'd have thought he'd do much better playing with Malkin.
