Fantasy hockey can be a tricky game for even the most seasoned veteran. An injury can force you into becoming a waiver-wire junkie or making an ill-conceived trade. One of your top picks can also go all "Scott Gomez" on you and become an overqualified paper weight.
There's typically very little suspense about the top 10 players ranked on anyone's list, and you'll probably not be surprised by mine either. Once you get past the top 10 to 15 picks though, the rest is pretty subjective.
Any fantasy hockey owner has a specific strategy, or at least the successful ones do. Some owners look to add pieces to their collective roster in order to make the team stronger. Others rely on star power to overcome all odds, placing their faith in a "name" player to lead their team to glory.
In any 10-to-12 team league, there will always be a limited number of stars to go around, so you have to do your homework to get players that will bring the most value to your team regardless of your strategy.
There's sure to be someone on this list that I have left off for one reason or another so be sure to take it personally, and as always, enjoy!
