Summer is coming to
a close, which means fantasy hockey draft season is now upon us. Landsharkhockey is releasing our initial
draft rankings and player notes today.
As always, everything on the site is free, so it's the perfect time and
place to start your fantasy draft preparations. Over the next few weeks, you can expect a
series of articles highlighting the different groups of players to be
considered, including: sleepers, overrated players, rising stars, injuries
risks, gambles, breakout players and more.
We will also be updating our rankings on a weekly basis through the
start of the season to account for injuries and other news coming out of
training camp this fall.
remains the premier site for customizing your own draft list. You can use our rankings as a starting point,
and reorder your list to fit your own predictions and insight. You can also choose to start your list based
on last year's scoring leaders, or even start with a blank slate and build it
yourself. The ranking tools include
comments and player flags to help you with your analysis.
New for 2011-12 -- Offensive Position breakdown.
In previous seasons,

offense in one group, then pull out your lists by specific position and manage
those lists individually. Give it a try

the opponents to draft based on certain strategies, to tailor your practice
towards your specific league.
Post-draft, we'll provide you with a
scorecard of how you did by position.
