    Default 2014 NHL Draft Top 100 Prospects for Fantasy Hockey (THW)

    2014 NHL Draft Top 100 Prospects based on pure #NHL offensive potential:


    In a draft pool that's already very debatable with respect to rankings, rnaking the prospects based on offensive upside is sure to create even more debate.


    Here's a teaser, the Top 5:

    That is an interesting list, and I did consult it last year during rookie-draft season.


    To see if this method is a significantly better predictor of fantasy success than normal draft rankings, I thought I'd look at the last few years of that list. Unfortunately, their 2011 (the first one they did) table seems to be broken.

    Here are the last two:
