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 or concern (DTD for day-to-day injury), contract status, age and likelihood of a Stanley Cup title. Players from eliminated teams have been removed from the list; the Tampa Bay Lightning are facing elimination (*). These rankings are a collaborative effort by Pete Jensen and Anna Dua.
