Midseason Fantasy Hockey Rankings (projected forward)

New, comment

Rankings from now until the end of the season. The first half of the season only tells half the story.

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The First Rankings of 2016
Here is a List of the top 200 Skaters and Top 25 Goalies on a projected basis from now until the end of the season. Some players who are in Bold are expected to have a strong 2nd half thus justifying their jump in what a normal Rankings would be from the start of the season until now.

Teams that help contribute to a bullish 2016:
Pittsburgh Penguins adjust to a new system and have a strong close to their year. Issues included chemistry and line tinkering. 
Buffalo Sabres as the addition of the new players gels with the current squad and allows some injuries to pass. The goaltending is improving which should improve the offensive flow and plus minus of many of their players. 
Washington Capitals tough to improve on a team that is already excelling but metrics show a low CORSI on some players who should be finding the new in a better fashion coupled with some unlucky breaks on shots. 
Calgary Flames have stayed in the playoff hunt despite the worst GAA in the league. Their goaltending is improving each week and will help them convert more chances on offense.
Anaheim Ducks they are also in the playoff hunt despite an atrociously low goals scored so far this season. They won't lead the league in goals scored but they will rise to a closer basement scoring team and that will allow Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry to rise up the scoring charts. 
St. Louis Blues much like the Ducks are not converting at a high rate. The difference is, at home they are firing the puck from all angles. Players like David Backes will find the scoring touch to give them a 2nd half boost.

Goaltenders have been a little odd this year: the traditional top tier names of Sergei Bobrovksy, Henrik Lundqvist, Jonathan Quick and Pekka Rinne are scattered around a bit. The second half will see some adjustments from the first half as a few of them climb towards the top. Remember, teams adjust for how goalies play so the truly elite goalies rise to the top late in the season as the endurance, skill and intelligence forces quick adjustments.
