This week we'll take a deep look at the Western Conference wingers. The fantasy value of wingers can be similarly identified using the same two stats as we used last week in judging the value for defenseman, which is PP ice-time and SOG. The reasoning behind it is the same. The amount of PP ice-time given usually separates players who are heavily relied upon to carry the team offensively than those who are considered role players. On a similar note, SOG usually maintains a similar line of thought. The more a winger shoots, the higher the chance that a puck goes into the net or at least generates chances for a poaching rebound. The opposite also holds true, the less a winger shoots, the lower the chance that the puck goes into the net, thus a lower potential for points. Now that we've established clear indicators on determining the fantasy value of wingers, let's take a closer look at a few of the wingers from the Western Conference.
