The Top 200 forward prospects to own in keeper league fantasy hockey – October edition
Boy, training camp sure moved players up and down the fantasy value list, eh? Whether it was Arturri Lehkonen's impressive camp in Montreal, or Danton Heinen's seizing a spot in Boston, or perhaps some players who made huge impressions but didn't quite make the team (such as Josh Ho-Sang with the Islanders) – lots of adjustments to make in how you rank players. Not only for your roster, but in trade talks and at the draft table too (yes, late drafts are still happening). And then there are are the disappointments. Did anyone expect Shea Theodore and Ryan Pulock to be cut? More on those two tomorrow, when I post the D rankings.
These rankings factor the prospect's offensive upside, the certainty that he will become an NHLer, the length of time we have to wait – and to a lesser extent, the roster he is joining, proneness to injury and immediate production (if applicable). Letter indicators are p=power forward t=two-way o=offensive os=offensive but small. There are a million categories we could put these prospects in, but I'm stuffing them – sometimes forcibly – into just the four.
