The All-Star break is a great time to recognize the most valuable fantasy player from each NHL team. Some were expected to be there; others have been surprises.
Since standard Yahoo leagues count six categories for skaters (goals, assists, plus/minus, penalty minutes, power-play points and shots on goal) and four for goalies (wins, goals-against average, save percentage and shutouts), the most accurate way to evaluate fantasy production over a particular time frame is to use Yahoo's performance-based rankings.
Unlike NHL.com's fantasy rankings, Yahoo's do not have future production in mind. These ranks evaluate how each player's statistical coverage stacks up to his peers, and can be used to identify the most valuable players for each team based on fantasy production to this point in the season. Each player is listed with his position(s) of eligibility and overall rank entering the break.
