It seems like just two weeks ago that us NHL fans were unsure if we would have any hockey to talk about at all in 2013. Yet here we are, several games into a new season, and there are already some interesting and unforeseen storylines emerging.
Arguably the most interesting part of the season thus far has been the league's leading scorers list.
Find me a pundit that thought that Daniel Winnik would be among the league's hottest scorers out of the gate, and I'll give up my Goldfish Cracker habit for a month. And that's my way of saying that you won't find that pundit...because there is no way I would give up my Goldfish crackers for a month.
There are some surprising names on the list, and some not-so-surprising names on the list.
We're going to rank the likelihood of each of the NHL's current leading scorers being able to maintain a spot on that list.
I'm considering points only at this juncture. This isn't a list of the leading goal scorers, but the leading point-earners.
(This list is accurate as of the morning of Sunday, January 27. There are several games on the docket tonight, so there could be some changes in the top 15 scorers.)
