FANTASY TEAM POWER RANKINGS

NOTES: These power rankings should be used strictly as a basis for player/team evaluation in fantasy hockey. Factors taken into account include offseason moves (signings, trades, coaching changes), positional depth, power plays, line combinations, defense pairs, goalie situations, injury trends, contract status and team history in the regular season and Stanley Cup Playoffs. Standard fantasy categories: goals, assists, plus/minus, power-play points, shots on goal and hits for skaters; wins, goals-against average, save percentage and shutouts for goalies. These rankings are a collaborative effort by Pete Jensen and Rob Reese.
