NOTES: These rankings take into account past regular season and playoff production, matchups, likelihood of a deep postseason run, lineup placement, power-play usage and goalie situation. Whether you are able to make roster changes or are locked into your roster, use this list to monitor changes in value and as a basis for your decision-making. Players from teams facing elimination are noted below (*) and those who have been eliminated have been removed from the list. ... DTD indicates player with day-to-day injury. These rankings are a collaborative effort by Pete Jensen and Rob Reese. Players who have dropped out are based on order of previous rankings from April 15.
