As always, players within +/- 5.0 ratings points should be considered about equal value and at that point would depend on personal preference and team needs. Taken into account includes: wait time, NHL certainty, upside, the depth chart of the franchise. To see the list of top forwards, click here.

  • Anthony Young

    Which player would you grab if you can select only one:
    Guhle, Jokiharju, Bear, Tmmins, Hague, Fox or Clague? (most of the others on the list are already owned)

    I must mention that I can sit on that player for many years as I don’t need him to contribute too quickly, so I want the higher upside. I would tend to lean towards Timmins or Fox.

    Thanks alot and keep on the good work, it is really appreciated to read you guys

    • Brad Phillips

      For me, I’d take Fox. I think he has as high an upside as anyone on the list.

    The record run of Joe Morrow being on this list is over? 🙁
