Top 200 Fantasy Hockey Prospect Forwards – May 2017

by Dobber on May 16, 2017 | (7 Comments)

 

Better late than never - here are the Top 200 prospect forwards to own in your keeper league - May edition.

 

This month, the full audit has begun. But - only begun! As you know, I'm working on the Fantasy Prospects Report and it is out June 1st. As I do the research, and the writers submit their research, I adjust the table accordingly. Presently, about half the players have been done. So you will see half the players adjusted to their rating, while the other half are still to be tweaked. That's not to say that they're way off - don't worry. Even they "untouched" ones aren't terribly mis-ranked. I'm just explaining that it will be the June edition (as it is every year) that will have the full audit. A good indicator of a player who was adjusted and seriously needed it, is to look at any massive ranking swings.

As always, players within +/-5.0 rating points should be considered equal value and not worth splitting hairs over.

o= offensive player; t= two-way player, os= offensive-small; p= power forward

  • 7Islanders

    Do Jared McCann still on Prospect-fowards Ranking, if yes what rating Do you give him?

  • Benoit

    Shipachyov is rated A+ by DobberProspects and yet is ranked #29. Does that mostly come down to him being unproven in North America, or a disagreement with whoever from DobberProspects that gave this rating?

    • Dobber

      I see those two statements as complete 100% agreement. You don’t?

      Don’t forget the +/- 5.0 rating points rule (at the top)

  • 99rules66isafatbum

    I”m guessing Barzal’s drop of 3 spots will be rectified in June.

    • Dobber

      He didn’t drop three spots, he failed to keep up with three players 😉

      Seriously though, I didn’t do the Islanders at all yet, so he is definitely one of the teams and depth charts that have not been ‘audited’

  • NHLGodfather

    NOTE: Minor adjustment. Pulkkinen is with Arizona. Personal note: When the Wild placed him on waivers, I thought Carolina should have claimed him. The guy is a pure sniper and it would seem a natural fit between Tervainen and Aho. Just thinking out loud here.

    • Dobber

      Sorry, I thought I made this change
