Craig Anderson     G     OTT Statistically, Anderson was the bset goalie in the league last season, by far. His 1.69 GAA and .941 save percentage were silly good. He just needed to stay healthy a little longer. He didn't show a sign of weakness all season until the 2nd round of the playoffs, where the Pens made him look human. A full season in good health will show whether or not he is for real as a #1 option.

Nicklas Backstrom     C     WAS Over the past 5 or so year, Backstrom has been one of the most consistent point producers in the NHL. Paired once again with Ovechkin, the two were dominant through the 2nd half of the season once more. The only downside is that he is extremely assist-heavy. Only twice has he cracked 20 goals.
Niklas Backstrom     G     MIN Over the past few years, it was starting to look like the Wild were ready to hand a share of the starter's work to Harding; however, with Harding's injury last season and the 3 year extension this summer, it appears the #1 job belongs to Backstrom again this season. He put in another respectable effort in 2013, but cannot seem to get back to the elite level he reached four years ago. Minnesota continues to improve, so he may be in line for more wins this season. There is always the possibility for him to reemerge as a top 5 talent, but at a minimum, you can bank on him as a decent #2.

Francois Beauchemin     D     ANA Beauchemin had a surprise breakthrough / comeback season last year, even earning some consideration for the Norris at various points. At 33 years of age, it's hard to envision any amount of upside beyond a 35-point production. The positive buzz last season will likely carry over, causing some poor soul to reach too early. Wait on him as a depth option.

Jamie Benn     LW     DAL Benn has been on the cusp of breaking out as a fantasy star for several seasons. With the retooling in Dallas, this could finally be the year he wins you a championship. If all pans out and he meshes well with newcomers like Seguin, he should easily set some career highs.
Jordie Benn     D     DAL
Beau Bennett     RW     PIT Bennett should be the one name on everyone's list of potential breakout players in 2013-14. He showed flashes of offensive magic in limited action last season, but couldn't stick on the top 2 stacked lines in Pittsburgh. The Pens made a point of announcing that he will have a much larger role this time around, immediately following the embarrassing playoff sweep.
Andre Benoit     D     COL
Sean Bergenheim     LW     FLA
Marc-Andre Bergeron     D     CAR
Patrice Bergeron     C     BOS The one thing holding Bergeron back from being a bigtime fantasy factor is the lack of goal scoring. He's consistently among the best in terms of assists and plus minus.
Niclas Bergfors     RW     NAS
Patrik Berglund     C     STL
Jonathan Bernier     G     TOR Bernier finally has the opportunity to win a #1 job, thanks to the move to Toronto. He will have to get past Reimer, who had a career season in 2013. At a minimum, he should see a fair bit of action as the #2 in town, but don't be shocked if he ends the season with the starting job. Could be a fine sleeper pick.

Ben Bishop     G     TAM Bishop failed to overwhelm in his debut with Tampa last season. Should he manage to best Lindback and earn the starter position for Tampa Bay, he may pan out as a decent sleeper pick. Don't waste a selection on him until the end of the draft, as he may just as well be a forgotten man in the NHL by the end of the season.

Mike Blunden     RW     MON
Sergei Bobrovsky     G     COB After a revelation of a season, all eyes will be on Bobrovsky to see if he can repeat the magic. The Jackets are clearly on rise and will rely on Sergei to keep them moving that way. There is no reason to doubt he will be a solid contributor once again fantasy wise, but expecting another Vezina may be overshooting. He is certainly a safe #1 option in net.

Jay Bouwmeester     D     STL Bouwmeester's goal production started to reemerge last season. He has been burdened by a poor team his whole career, but he will be entering his first full campaign on a legitimate NHL contender. That could qualify him as a potential sleeper.

Dan Boyle     D     SAN Boyle has been a top tier fantasy fixture for almost a decade now. We started to see the production tail off just a little last season. It's unreasonable to expect fantasy dominance to go on forever. He will remain a decent #3 option, but don't overreach for a declining asset.

Martin Brodeur     G     NJD For the first time in his career, Brodeur enters the season with a legitimate challenge to his job. Best case has him splitting time with Schneider on one of the worst teams in the league. Seems unlikely to add more than 10 wins to his sizable career total.
Mike Brodeur     G     OTT
T.J. Brodie     D     CGY
Jonas Brodin     D     MIN While he has yet to display much goal scoring acumen, the rookie performed quite well for the Wild last season. He logged huge minutes for a first year defenseman and moved the puck well. There is much offensive upside. As the Wild improve, so will Brodin's fantasy value. Look for a potential breakout season here.

Fabian Brunnstrom     LW     DET
Ilya Bryzgalov     G     MIN Despite the bizarre soundbits and Youtube clips off the ice, Bryzgalov's performance in Philly wasn't nearly as bad as it was made out to be. He had very little assistance from the men in front of him. The biggest factor at this point remains his location. Namely, will he be tending net in the KHL or the NHL come fall. Stay tuned to see if an NHL team takes a chance on him. Depending on the situation, his stock could rise quickly, or disappear forever.

Dane Byers     LW     COB
Dustin Byfuglien     D     WIN Byfuglien continues to score goals at the rate of a 2nd line winger, making him a valuable commodity in fantasy circles. He may have extra motivation as he tries to get the attention of U.S.A. Hockey heading into the Olympic selection process. He piles up huge minutes for the Jets and can be counted on for another solid fantasy effort in 2013-14. Start your expectations around 15 goals.

Andrew Campbell     D     LOS
Brian Campbell     D     FLA Campbell tends get overlooked. He's used to being the best defensemen on some offensively challenged teams. Last season, his horrid plus-minus offset his normal fine point production. He's been extremely reliable over his 13 NHL seasons and no real reason to expect a significant demise just yet at age 34. There's really no upside here, but he should be counted on for another decent fantasy season in the 40 point vicinity.

John Carlson     D     WAS Carlson contributed with another good, but not great, fantasy effort in 2013. Green has somewhat reclaimed some of the spotlight in Washington, but there's still room for Carlson to grow into a top notch fantasy option. He should set career highs this season.

Jeff Carter     RW     LOS Jeff Carter continues to be one of the most reliable goal scoring options you can draft. He potted 26 in 48 contests last season and is still in his prime. Given a full season, you can start the bidding at around 35 goals.

Roman Cervenka     O     CGY
Michael Chaput     C     COB
Zdeno Chara     D     BOS Same story year after year. Few hockey players have been as consistent in fantasy production as Big Z. Goals. Assists. +/-. Penalties. All Star slap shot records. He does it all. Through 12 NHL seasons, the most games he's missed in a year is 11. Can't go wrong here.

Logan Couture     C     SAN Couture was on pace for a career high in goals last season, and may have pressed for 40, given a full season. He continued his offensive production through the playoffs with 11 points in 11 games. Couture has become the face of the Sharks and should continue his upward momentum into 2013-14. Look for him to challenge for 35 goals and 80 points.

Corey Crawford     G     CHI If it's wins that you crave, consider holding out for Crawford as your #1 in net. The Hawks will surely deliver plenty in the W column again in 2013-14, and this time, assuming he stays healthy, Crawford won't have to share the net with Emery. Khabibulin will fill in only when Crawford needs a breather. His numbers last year were among the best in the league. He just needs more starts to rank with the elite.
B.J. Crombeen     RW     TAM
Sidney Crosby     C     PIT Same story every season. Crosby sits in a league by himself. When healthy. Last season, he was running away with the scoring title, and still deserved MVP honors, despite having his season cut short by a puck to the face. Even playing 3/4 of a season, he's arguably the best option on the table.

Pavel Datsyuk     C     DET While his best days are surely behind him, Datsyuk continues to get the job done for Detroit. Last year saw another point-per-game pace, despite crossing into his mid-30's. I wouldn't expect a major decline in production, but the slow descent may begin shortly. Look for a dip in numbers, but no enough to scare you away from a mid-draft pick.

Simon Despres     D     PIT The Pens intentionally held Despres back last season, despite his enormous potential. Minutes after being bumped from the playoffs, the team made a point of saying that Despres will enjoy a much bigger role with the team in 2013-14. With the amount of goal scoring that goes on in Pittsburgh, that means plenty of potential. This will be the breakout season for Despres.
Jamie Devane     LW     TOR
Andre Deveaux     C     NYR
Raphael Diaz     D     NYR Through two NHL season, the tiny Swiss defenseman has been a mixture of productive and hurt. He sat out half of last season with a concussion, which places him on permanent injury watch in the fantasy world. He finished healthy, logging more than 20 minutes a game for Montreal, so he should be a safe bet out of the gate.

Drew Doughty     D     LOS Each season, expectations are out there that Doughty will be a fantasy beast, the way he was in 2009-10. After three straight mediocre seasons, the shine has started to fade. He's still a solid #1 option, but cannot be considered among the elite at this point (at least in fantasy circles).

Chris Drury     C     NYR
Wade Dubielewicz     G     MIN
Brandon Dubinsky     C     COB
Devan Dubnyk     G     MON For his first few seasons as a starter, Dubnyk had to deal with Khabibulin looking over his shoulder. He enters this season, clearly established as the man on a team that should (in theory) win a lot of games going forward. The defense remains suspect, which means a lot of action (saves), though his GAA may continue to suffer until this unit gels. He has potential for a big season, making him a sleeper target late in your draft.

Pascal Dupuis     LW     PIT Dupuis is a personal favorite here at Landsharkhockey, so I must be careful not to artificially inflate his value. If the Pens ever find room for him on the power play, this guy could pop in 30 goals without a problem. As long as the lineup remains stacked, you'll have to settle for a steady stream of even strength tallies.

Jordan Eberle     RW     EDM Eberle's production slipped a bit in his 3rd NHL season, failing to build on his previous year's success. He was still a decent fantasy winger. Look for a major rebound in his numbers in 2013-14. He should deliver near point-per-game output and is a very good bet for 30 goals. If the stars align, he could join teammate Taylor Hall in the hunt for a scoring title this season.
Tyler Eckford     D     PHO
Alexander Edler     D     VAN Edler piled up fantasy points again last season, thanks to a blend of goals, assists and PIMs. While he had struggled with injuries for several seasons, he has been a picture of good health for the last 2 seasons. The once powerful fantasy back-end in Vancouver has been whittled away over the years, leaving Edler as the go-to guy to carry the puck. Look for another solid fantasy effort in the mid-40 point range.
Christian Ehrhoff     D     BUF Ehrhoff has been a solid fantasy producer throughout his career, provided he was healthy. Playing on a struggling Sabres lineup will limit his value a bit; however, there's no reason to expect a significant dropoff this time around. 40-points is a good target.
Mattias Ekholm     D     NAS
Oliver Ekman-Larsson     D     PHO Ekman-Larsson continues to progress, heading into his fourth season in the NHL. He has been a bit overshadowed by Yandle in Phoenix, but that shouldn't stop you from snatching him up mid-draft. He should set a career high in points, and may make a go at 50.
Patrik Elias     LW     NJD

Keaton Ellerby     D     WIN
Brian Elliott     G     STL Elliot seemed to regain control of the goalie situation down the stretch and into the playoffs last seasons. He failed to live up to the insane standard he set the previous year, but made a strong case for #1 job. However, Hitchcock has proven to be quick to change, given his options in net. Should he secure the net full time, his stock could rise. Seems more likely to endure another split crease in 2013-14, which severely limits his viability.

Ray Emery     G     PHI High Risk, High Reward is the overused phrase that most applies to Ray Emery in the goalie discussion. Emery has paid his dues and shaken the poor reputation he earned early in his career. He put together a fantastic effort as 1B in Chicago last season, and he's ready to make a go at being the Main Man again. His only hurdle will be to dispose of Mason in training camp. His value comes down to two factors: 1. Health. 2. Flyer Rebound. Philly has to be better this year, but that depends on them finding their way defensively. Assuming they prove 2013 to be a fluke, the Flyers should re-establish themselves as a contender, making Emery a very nice (and probably cheap) option for your fantasy squad. Snag him mid-draft and look very smart come Winter.

Deryk Engelland     D     PIT
Andreas Engqvist     C     MON
Tyler Ennis     C     BUF
Jhonas Enroth     G     BUF Given the uncertainty surrounding Miller and his future in Buffalo, Enroth could emerge as a hot sleeper option this season. He has been consistent (albeit nothing particularly special) as Miller's #2 over the past few season. He has stepped up in short stretches, but overall, hasn't excited. Should he default into the #1, his value will obviously rise.
Tobias Enstrom     D     WIN Following a strong start, Enstrom bowed out early last season with a shoulder injury. Upon returning, he struggled to put up points and ended the season back in the nurse's station with an achin' back. Obviously, injuries will continue to be a concern for Enstrom; however, you can probably wait on him as many will have forgotten on gotten gunshy on trust. Should he return to good health, he should return to the 3rd tier of fantasy defensemen.

Given the success of that duo last season, it wouldn't be shocking to see a repeat of the 1A/1B scenario. While that may spell good news for the Ducks, it's a dreaded scenario for fantasy owners.
Justin Faulk     D     CAR With McBain and Corvo leaving town, Faulk defaults into the #1 offensive defenseman role in Carolina. Not that this is much to brag about, but somebody has to eat up those power play minutes. He won't be high on the radar on draft day, so you can probably nab him as a late sleeper and enjoy some moderate, unexciting, average production from him in 2013-14.

Marc-Andre Fleury     G     PIT You'll need to focus hard, but try and forget what happened in last year's playoffs. And the playoffs the year before that. Focus. In the regular season (which is what we care about in fantasy town), Fleury has been a very good option. The Pens (for some unknown reason) insist on standing behind him as their #1, despite having a far more stable option in Vokoun at the ready. As long as that vote of confidence remains from the man behind the bench, Fleury will carry significant fantasy value. The Pens promise to rack up the wins again this year, and the Flower is the default option to gather those Ws. Because of his post-season struggles, you will probably see Fleury slide deep come draft time, making him a potential sleeper win.

It's a bit of crap-shoot predicting the front runner, but I'm betting on Halak re-emerging this season as the top option for St. Louis. His GAA over the past two seasons has been among the best in the league. Don't bank on him as your #1 man to start the season, but you can take a flier on him late in the draft and potentially strike gold.

So why do we project a slight dip in performance in 2013-14? A few reasons: The Caps did nothing to get better over the summer. In fact, they probably lost an edge. They will be playing a tougher schedule than they've become accustomed to under the new landscape. Bottom line: Holtby won't have much help. He's still a potential starting goalie for your squad, but just barely.

He puts up points and PIMS at an impressive rate when healthy. He finished last season healthy enough to put up 8 points in 10 games.
Phil Kessel     RW     TOR If you're a big fan of 30-goal scorers, Phil Kessel is your man. He's hit that mark for 5 straight seasons (if you pro-rate last year's numbers, that is).

Chris Kunitz     LW     PIT Last season was special for Kunitz. It was fantastic. But it will never happen again. Kunitz finished 2nd overall in fantasy points and was a legitimate challenger for the Art Ross Trophy once it was clear that Crosby wouldn't return. But without Crosby, the production slowed down considerably. He should continue to provide piggy-back value from Crosby and/or Malkin, but a repeat of last year's magic is extremely unlikely.

Dallas made some solid moves in the offseason and may be a contending team again this season. Lehtonen likewise has the potential to emerge as a fantasy #1.

Kris Letang     D     PIT A late season injury most likely cost Letang his first Norris Trophy last season. He led defensemen in scoring up until the end of the season. His goal production was down a notch, but he continues to run the machine from the back end for the powerful Pens. Expect another solid fantasy season for Letang. Should he stay healthy (which has always been problematic due to his style of play), he could be the best value on defense.

Unfortunately for your draft, that scenario won't play out until just before, or early into, the season. Even so, goaltending in Tampa hasn't been a good thing in fantasy hockey since Darren Puppa left town.

Henrik Lundqvist     G     NYR While he fell just shy of another Vezina nod last season, you simply cannot get more in terms of reliability than Hank. I suspect that the coaching change will have an overall positive effect on his fantasy numbers. He should see significantly more shots this season, which means more saves. And the shots that Torts dictated be blocked out front tended to be the easier saves for a goalie. Logically, you should see a higher save percentage, more saves, and overall total domination for Lundqvist as this year's top goalie pick.
Roberto Luongo     G     FLA The goalie trade finally materialized for the Canucks, but of course, it didn't go according to the plan. Luongo now finds himself as the surprise unchallenged starter for Vancouver. Assuming everyone can kiss and make up, this has the makings of a potentially strong comeback season for Luongo on the fantasy front. On the downside, if Coach Torts has his way, Luongo will see less shots than he has been accustomed to, meaning the saves column will take a hit. Still, the increased volume of play will make him a viable #1 option in net once more. The added incentive to play his way into the #1 job for Team Canada won't hurt much either.
Joffrey Lupul     LW     TOR Lupul has missed significant time over the last two seasons, appearing in just 16 contests last year; however, over that time, he has averaged just over a point per game. Paired once again with Kessel, Lupul should continue to be one of the most dynamic options at the LW position this season.

Just don't bank on more than 60 games.

Brad Marchand     LW     BOS Marchand is a bit underrated in terms of fantasy value, but he continues to produce across the columns. His speed and grit net him goals, assists, and a good helping of penalty minutes, to complement one of the best +/- numbers year after year. He's just hitting his prime and is worth an early look.
Todd Marchant     C     ANA

Andrei Markov     D     MON Last season, Markov was shockingly healthy and remarkably productive. His talent and reliability have never been an issue when he's on the ice. However, last season's full slate of games was clearly an anomoly. You're rolling those dice to believe he can do it twice in a row. If the gamble pays off, you could have a top 5 fantasy option. More likely, you'll get production for 3/4 of the season and nothing for the rest.
Jacob Markstrom     G     VAN Markstrom appears ready to make his first serious go at being a number one goaltender. He split the duties last season. Florida leaves little to get excited about, so consider him as a depth option in larger leagues only.
Patrick Marleau     LW     SAN Marleau's fantasy numbers have been on a steady decline for some time now. However, he continues to pop in enough goals to keep him very relevant. While the best is the past here, you should be able to settle for 25 goals with a mid to late round draft selection.

Paul Martin     D     PIT Martin's career was seemingly reborn last season. After nearly being run out of town last summer, Martin had a terrific comeback campaign, spoiled by a mid-season wrist injury. At times, he showed up Letang and made a case to be the #1 power play QB for the mighty Pens. Given a full season of good health, it's reasonable to expect career highs from Martin in 2013-14.

Comparing his performance over the past 4 seasons versus that of Emery, it seems more likely that Mason rides it out as a backup. Consider it a significant gamble to put your faith in Mason this season.

Evgeni Nabokov     G     NYI Last season, Nabokov delivered a stellar fantasy campaign, reminiscent of his glory days in San Jose. He brought stability to the Islanders net for the first time in decades. It looked as though he would ride off into the sunset (KHL) after the playoffs, but instead, he appears to be ready to give it one more go on an improving Islanders squad. He should get plenty of goal-scoring support this season, and should see plenty of shots. Expect another decent performance, but a repeat of last year's finish (8th in total fantasy points) seems like a reach.
