The value of a winger can easily be identified by interpreting the same two stats used to identify the value of blue-liners, which is PP ice-time and SOG (shots on goal). The reasoning behind it is very simple. PP ice-time usually separates players who are offensive-minded from those that are defensive-oriented. Similarly with SOG, the more a winger shoots, the higher the chance it goes into the net or creates offensive chances.

 

NOTE: These ramblings are based on one-year leagues, and not meant for keeper/dynasty leagues.

 

I also used the positions as listed onnhl.com, so there may be some discrepancies in position compared to your league settings. Don't worry too much if a clear cut right winger isn't listed in this column, I assure you that it will be covered in the left wing or center column in the next two weeks.
