    Eric Staal and Thomas Vanek, because I dropped them this year after owning them for a decade and they will become available again.

    Bobrovski is another vote for me.

    This works for just about any player that greatly exceeded expectations this year.

    I don't have any sources, but I have hear rumblings that Pitt will try to find room to keep him. If he stays there, I think those numbers are at least potentially attainable again

    Keep in mind that Schultz might be doing well for another reason aside from his situation, namely his need to earn another contract. He was seen as a major disappointment in prior seasons, then out of the blue he goes berserk when he's playing for his next deal. It's at least a back of the mind concern.

    Schultz is 5th in scoring among dmen. Even if the environment somehow improves he probably doesn't finish this high next year.

    Backstrom will not drop off until around 35 he is just too intelligent/cerebral and his panic threshold is unmatched by anyone in the league, you want to talk about hold onto the puck until last possible microsecond look no further then the best play maker in the game.

    I completely agree. If you want to get an idea of what to expect from Backstrom over the next five years, look at what Joe Thornton did in his early 30s.
