Love the list Lucas.

If I had to disagree on one, it wi\ould be "Buff".

I know he is getting older. But, with the Jet "D" losing Trouba I think Buff will be relied on more than ever. Always a source of PIMs, he should also chip in a good amount of goals, PP points and overall points. I would move him up at least 5-8 spots on this list. Although, injuries and age might slow him down.....still, I think at the end of the year. Buff is inside the Top 15.

hawk I'm all for some discussion and without a doubt my list wont be perfect but you are right the only reason I have him ranked where I do is because injury possibility. His ice time and PP time will increase but not by a landslide - I think Morrissey will fil that void of Trouba.

So that is my reasoning but if healthy he should move up a few spots on my list.

thanks for chiming in - hopefully lots of chatter leading up to October!

Yes. And so much depends on various leagues scoring. Any league with PIMs or hits and Buff is much more valuable. If it is strictly points, then he falls off some.

Each format means re-shuffling those lists big time!

Morgan Reilley in the top ten...is a howler enjoy the Leaf clicks.
And I can't stand Drew Doughty but that's quite the fall.

You know Rielly was 3rd in scoring for D last year, right?

It’s fantasy hockey, everyone should be ranking Rielly in their top dmen

Doughty is on a bad LA team, points will be tough to come by

No McAvoy? is it because he is unsigned? He's better than a few on your list.

he may be a better player, but maybe not a better fantasy option IMO

Krug is in there - #1PP

some of the comments in this thread really show how easy it is to have a great fantasy hockey draft


compare that to fantasy football where most dudes can name the back running backs on every team lol
