by Fantasy Hockey Staff @NHLFantasy ranks the most valuable players for fantasy hockey pools counting the 2021 Stanley Cup Final between the Montreal Canadiens and Tampa Bay Lightning. For more fantasy coverage, visit and subscribe for free to the NHL Fantasy on Ice podcast.





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 team 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 or concern (INJ. for injured or DTD for day to day), contract status, age and positional matchups in the Stanley Cup Final. The Montreal Canadiens are facing elimination (*). These rankings are a collaborative effort by Pete Jensen and Rob Reese.
