So you can actually choose a different basis for the rankings and compare them or even import your projections and base the rankings on them. The main benefit of fantasyhockeygeek is that it saves you doing all the math and calculations ..... it will tell you which player (based on a given set of rankings) is the highest scoring in your pool. It will also show you comparative value across positions etc.
Im pretty sure they have a free trial period so you can check it out with no risk.
yea, I just did it for my league... I used last season stats. Verryyy interesting results. As Pengwin said, Faceoffs are HUGE. Staal was ranked 4th overall (granted Crosby, Toews and a few others are down pretty far due to missed time) but there are 7 dman in the top 20, not counting Buff and Letang. When they are healthy they are obviously top 20.
So, if I don't get a great C, I might be forced to take a dman first round... is that stupid? I'm thinking I might be able to wait until 2nd round, because I doubt everyone realizes how valuable the big ones are. But if I don't get Malkin/Crosby/Stamkos/Toews/Giroux/Staal/Tavares, I think the next best player is a dman.
