The 2011-12 season is in the books and before the frenzy of free agency overwhelms you, why not take a look back on the season that was. The 2011-12 NHL season was a memorable one because there were a lot of things that were accomplished.
A player broke the 100-point plateau, a player scored 60 goals and there were a lot of other achievements that need to be recognized.
It is never easy to rank the top 62 players given the complexity and nuances that go on during the evaluation process.
Here is how the top 62 will work.
A player will be ranked on their 2011-12 performance, how it was an improvement from the year prior, the impact the player had on their team and a few other areas to determine their ranking in the top 62. Forwards and defensemen will get priority placement, but goalies will not be forgotten.
Players who did not play a complete season will likely not appear on this list.
