Ranking Criteria
My rankings are specifically designed for points-only leagues, taking into account the following ranking criteria:
  • Defence – goals and assists recent seasons
  • Proven / Unproven – Ex. Steven Stamkos is a proven consistent scorer.
  • Upside – Ex. Nathan MacKinnon has upside.
  • Age – Hitting his prime? Old and numbers are slipping?
  • Team Dynamics – Are they playing on a strong team or a weak team?
  • Proneness to Injury
Please Note: I cannot create rankings which cover all league rules. My rankings are based on the following point system: Goals (1 point), and Assists (1 point) as well as the Ranking Criteria.
