Every Tuesday during the season, NHL.com fantasy hockey expert Matt Cubeta will provide you with an in-depth analysis of fantasy forwards in his weekly segment: "The Front Line." From updated rankings to players you should keep a close eye on and much more, Cubeta will be your fantasy forwards expert all season long.
Slowly but surely we're starting to see the "superstars" gravitate toward the top of the ranks in Yahoo! fantasy leagues, as we all expected. Sure, there are still some surprise names at the top of the list, but our proven commodities that we all spent early draft selections on are taking their place where we hoped they would.
Steven Stamkos is currently ranked third in Yahoo! leagues -- he has seven goals and nine assists in eight games and has recorded at least one point in each contest this season. He's the only player with six multi-point efforts and has tallied a power-play goal in each of the last three games. It's safe to expect Stamkos to rank among our top three forwards all season long.
