A few rookies cracking the top 75

The NHL season starts in less than a week! Time for my top 200 rankings and no surprise, I think Connor McDavid could be in for another fantastic season. There are a handful of rookies who I think could make a meaningful impact this year: Nico Hischier, Nolan Patrick, Clayton Keller and Brock Boeser to name a few.

Included in the rankings are a few players who I think could be headed up or down based on efforts in Preseason. I have not moved them that way yet because, well because it’s preseason but either the effort and skill is showing or it’s not through a handful of games. I will also admit that I’m a sucker for consistency, if you show a large history of injuries or up and down play I’m going to ding you for it.

So now I invite your criticisms your lambasting and your questions as I submit my 2017 top 200 Fantasy Hockey rankings:
