You should never be comfortable with your fantasy team; always be looking for ways to improve your squad as you gear up for a long playoff run. As the NHL hits its Olympic break, it is a perfect time to sit back and examine what can come in the final six weeks of action.
Many fantasy leagues break up the wingers and many do not, so here we will break them up and examine each side of the ice. It is hard to pinpoint the side a winger plays on because most players can play on both side and with that are eligible for both sides in a fantasy lineup. With that in mind we will use what NHL.com lists a player as in our rankings.
As we saw in the NHL fantasy rankings for goalies , defensemen , centers and right wingers there were some surprise players who will make a huge fantasy impact down the stretch. That is the same feeling among the best right wingers in the league as time winds down on the NHL and fantasy seasons.
