This is simply pulling defensemen out of the regular 'Rankings' list and adding a few more at the bottom. Ratings are a reflection of a player's trade value in 'rollover' fantasy hockey pools. They reflect a players predicted points, historical points, injury risk, team "reputation/potential powerhouse" value, powerplay time, and long-term potential.  Basically, if you are in a keeper league, this is my opinion based on my statistical model of a player's 'trade value'.  Naturally, individual trades would depend on the direction you are taking with your team at the present.

Quoting XavierSimon:
5 D from Nashville in the top 30? Can't see a team having 5 D with +/- 40 points season.

Well with Franson UFA it makes 4 Def within the top 30. Does it make sens knowing that Nashville is not a high octane offense?

What about Paul Martin?

In a points only league? I doubt anyone would want to own him

On the next list, does Ekblad enter the top 20, the top 10? He's having a historically good year.

Maatta wasn't missed but at #55 I'm left scratching my head. He is going to make more than a few fantasy GM's wonder why they didn't act sooner. Loads of talent, great work ethic and an opportunity to play with some incredible talent.

how is Andy Greene left off this list? after what he did last year behind the same players on the depth chart, he continues to see 2PP time.

I answered this in the forum, but basically he should be around 60 or 70. It's a flaw in the formula that punishes 40-point players (or lower-point players like that) if they are injured for a couple of months. And he is out until December

Did you miss Olli Maata or is he really ranked lower than the last few on the list?

There are a few players listed twice- Tyutin- 101 & 94,
Nurse 84 & 101, Reinhart 90 & 101.
