Life is good for the defending Stanley Cup champions and their players, naturally, have loads of appeal when it comes to fantasy hockey. Stitched Magic Jerseys Online . Trouble is, finding value wont be easy since everyone knows who the big wheels are in the Windy City. Top Picks: C Jonathan Toews is a better "real" hockey player than fantasy player and thats saying something because hes a top-tier fantasy centre too, having his points-per-game increase every year, going over a point-per-game last season and never having less than a double-digit plus rating. He doesnt have the super-high offensive ceiling of a few others, but Toews is a safe cornerstone pick in the first round. Maligned a year ago after some off-ice concerns, RW Patrick Kane re-established his place as an elite scoring winger, putting up a career-high 1.17 points per game in 2013. Even with less than stellar peripheral stats (hits, blocked shots, penalty minutes), hes a No. 1 winger whose low-point in a full season is 66 points, which is a nice safety net. An injury shortened what was already a short season and LW Patrick Sharp managed just six goals in 28 regular season games, posting the lowest shooting percentage (6.8%) of his career. Then the playoffs started and Sharp led the postseason with 10 goals in 23 games, showing how those percentages can fluctuate in small samples. Hes scored at least 25 goals in each of the five previous full seasons and, even with last years problems, has 160 goals since 2007-2008, ranking 21st. With a strong cast around him, Sharp is a reasonable No. 1 left wing pick. A scorer who backchecks, RW Marian Hossa is one of six players to have at least 275 points and a plus-90 rating over the past six seasons. While he is one year removed from a 77-point season, hes generally not scoring at that level any more and, at 34, thats entirely understandable. Hes on the border of being a No. 1 or No. 2 right winger. While D Brent Seabrooks scoring numbers have fallen, he remains valuable in fantasy leagues that count hits and blocked shots, not to mention plus-minus -- his plus-76 over the last five seasons ranks third among defencemen. Duncan Keith doesnt have the hits and blocked shots to match Seabrook, but he ranks second among defencemen in plus-minus (plus-80) and points (225) over the last five seasons. G Corey Crawford had the best (30-game) season of his career, won a Stanley Cup and signed a new long-term contract, but its worth noting that his career save percentage (.913) is decidedly lower than last years mark (.926), so if hes not suddenly going to be stopping more than 92% of the shots sent his way, the overall numbers could slip. However, if hes merely an adequate starting goaltender, getting 60 starts for a Cup contender has plenty of value for the win potential alone. Value Plays: He wont sneak up on anyone after his postseason scoring surge, but LW Bryan Bickell shouldnt be overrated either, considering he has 35 goals and 84 points over the last three seasons. Sure, if he lands a regular spot on Toews wing, Bickell becomes valuable as a potential 20-goal scorer, but line combinations can change quickly. Sleepers/Breakthrough: The counter to the Bickell play is LW Brandon Saad, who impressed as a rookie, scoring 27 points in 46 games, but lost his spot on Toews wing in the playoffs. Saads not yet 21-years-old and has the big frame to be a scoring power forward, so he may have better chance to play in a scoring role, but there is some uncertainty about who will land that plum spot on the first line. The playoffs exposed some weaknesses in the game of 22-year-old D Nick Leddy and hes not getting huge minutes as a third-pair defenceman in Chicago, but he has 55 points in 130 games over the last two seasons, ranking 29th. His offensive potential gives him value in deeper, or keeper, leagues. Rookies: Its not easy for a rookie to crack the lineup of, let alone play a significant role for, a Stanley Cup contender, but C Brandon Pirri has a chance to win the second-line centre job.The 22-year-old has two points in seven career NHL games, but scored 75 points in 76 AHL games last season, his third year in the pros, so hes ready to make the jump.
