    All the players I own in my various leagues are all way too low.

    I am glad I'm not the only one expecting Panarin's points to plummet drastically.

    Writer of the weekly Top 10 column.

    12-team Keeper pool, straight points for forwards & dmen. Goalies get: 2 points per win, 3 per shutout, 1 point per assist & 1 point per shootout loss.

    League champ in 2013 and 2015.

    Top 8 forwards, 5 dmen and 2 goalies count.

    We keep 15 players (any position) plus two rookies.

    Forwards: Pavelski, Kopitar, Voracek, Giroux, Little, Benn, Thornton, Galchenyuk, Eriksson Ek, Lucic, Stepan, Simmonds, Dadonov, Lee, Bailey
    Defence: Letang, Carlson, McAvoy, Gostisbehere, Leddy
    Goalies: Price, Murray, Quick

    I'm not sure putting him in the third tier is being "down" on him. A lot of quality in that group.

    I suppose so, but I can't pretend to try and dive into projections for save percentage or goals-against average for these guys so my tiered ranking is more of a "by feel" sort of thing. My elite tier involves goalies I see as tentpole starters on elite teams (plus Carey Price). Tier Two involves the goalies I think could spike to elite levels. Tier three is the bonafide starters who I don't see being elite or whom I don't have a great feel for.

    Absolutely, and that wasn't meant to be a knock on your rankings (really appreciate you sharing), more my initial reaction to seeing him at #18 (based on my draft position in one league I am looking seriously at him). As a Leafs fan I'm digging the Andersen rank! Cheers.

    If he stays healthy enough he should fire enough pucks to get there but I will always have questions.

    No worries, I am looking for good discourse, which is why I am happy to explain my ranking here.

    And yes, I am bullish on the Leafs as a whole, which is reflected in my Andersen ranking.

    I like your list. Only thing I really disagreed on was Draisaitl's projections but very solid in my opinion.

    I'll happily be wrong, I just don't think C2 Draisaitl works out as well for fantasy owners as RW1 Draisaitl did.

    looked at the projection again and is only 5 pt different from what I have him at, so not really a difference REALLY .. lol.

    Freddy Andersen higher than Holtby? That's bold!

    Also, you think Theodore will anchor the PP in Vegas and be a top 30 fantasy dman?
    I can't promise I'll try but I'll try to try.
