Players you should be drafting in all standard formats:
- Semyon Varlamov: Regrouped to finish the season on a solid note.
- Gabriel Landeskog: The new captain can only expect to improve on his 22-goal rookie season.
Players you’ll take as a flier at the end of your draft or in deeper leagues. Think 12-16 teams with multiple forward and util spots.
- P.A. Parenteau: Heavy on the PIMs and assists last season but will that success translate to Colorado?
- Paul Stastny: Dimishing totals and a deep center position should leave Stastny on waivers.
- Matt Duchene: The only way to go is up, right?
- Steve Downie: PIM monster but without one of the top Lightning centers, can he contribute on the scoresheet?
- Erik Johnson: Here’s hoping he returns back to 30+ points.
