FANTASY POOL TOP 100 OVERALL RANKINGS

Basic playoff pools have the following scoring system: goals and assists count for skaters with a potential bonus for a hat trick, and wins count for goalies with a potential bonus for a shutout. Value has been quantified based on factors including but not limited to past production in the regular season and playoffs, line combinations, defense pairs, power-play usage, goalie start volume and timeshare situations, 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.
