TOP 100 FORWARD RANKINGS

Basic playoff pools count goals and assists count for skaters with a potential bonus for a hat trick. Value has been quantified based on factors including but not limited to past production in the regular season and playoffs, line combinations, power-play usage, injury history, contract status, age, overall upside for the Stanley Cup Qualifiers and likelihood of a deep postseason run.

It's worth noting that some teams in the Stanley Cup Qualifiers will play a best-of-5 series (*) but must win their series to advance to the playoffs. The top four teams in each conference will play a maximum of three round-robin games but already have guaranteed spots in the postseason field.
