NHL's Top 200 Fantasy Players

Peter Jensen and Matt Cubeta put together their thoughts on the top 200 fantasy players for the upcoming fantasy games.  They looked at the players based on their past performances as well as the teams that some of them have transferred to.  These rankings will more than likely change when training camp begins but these are their thoughts on what the top 200 should be come draft day.

Here are the top 5 for each of the predictors.

126. Mike Green
140. Evgeny Kuznetsov
