Fantasy Hockey Pool Tips: Right Wingers

Another position that is loaded with Superstars. No Matter who you get as long as you can ensure you get one of the top ten you will be in good shape in the standings in your hockey pool this year. As always we will go over the tops ten plus some sleeper picks who may surprise people this year

Top 5 Right Wingers

  1. Alex Ovechkin – Washington Capitals – With the Olympics coming up, Ovie wants to reclaim the title of best player on the planet. He should reach 50 goals and if your pool counts shots then you will be very happy taking him with the first overall pick
  2. Patrick Kane – Chicago Blackhawks – Now that he has matured, Kane can now be considered one of the best wingers in the NHL. There isn’t a player who is better and more creative with the puck than him
  3. Corey Perry – Anaheim Ducks – Can score with the best of them. Only a few years removed from leading the league in both goals and points. Anaheim is looking to jump back into the discussion when talking about the best teams in the Western Conference and when Perry is on the Ducks are right up there
  4. Phil Kessel – Toronto Maple Leafs – With speed and skill to burn, Kessel isn’t afraid to shoot the puck. There are only a couple of players with more points than him in the last few years. Toronto’s success depends on him and he won’t disappoint
  5. James Neal – Pittsburgh Penguins – Already an amazing player, but when he plays on a line with Sidney Crosby then the skies the limit to the amount of points he can put up

5-10 Right Wingers

  1. Martin St Louis – Tampa Bay Lightning – The Ageless Wonder. He may be pushing 40 but Marty hasn’t slowed down one bit. He is always there with Stamkos and is usually credited with an assist on Stammers many goals
  2. Rick Nash – New York Rangers– Big, strong and now the Rangers best player. It will be interesting to see how many points he can put up now that John Tortorella and his defensive minded style of coaching are gone and Alain Vigneault comes in willing to let his player play
  3. Marion Gaborik – Columbus Blue Jackets – Last years surprise team will only benefit from a full season from Gaborik. I expect him to get back to the numbers he used to have as long as he can stay healthy
  4. Jeff Carter – Los Angeles Kings – The Kings are deep. Carter has always been a talented player and this may be the year he is in the top ten in points thanks to the fact he can also play center. Playing with longtime teammate and friend Mike Richards only helps not only Carter but the Kings
  5. Marian Hossa – Chicago Blackhawks – It’s scary to imagine a full season of a healthy Hossa. There isn’t a player in the league stronger with the puck on his stick and plays a complete game at both ends of the ice

Sleeper Right Wingers

  1. Loui Eriksson – Boston Bruins – He Can and will quietly put up some bug numbers. Coming over from Dallas in the Tyler Seguin trade he immediately jumps to the Bruins top line and will enjoy success with both Milan Lucic and David Krejci by his side
  2. Alex Burrows – Vancouver Canucks – Anybody that plays on a line with the Sedin twins is going to put up lots of points if only by association. Burrows can play and will rack up lots of points thanks to the Twins freakish skill set
  3. Nathan Horton – Columbus Blue Jackets – Desperate to prove that the huge money he received in the off season was no joke. If healthy he will score around 30 goals and 60 points
  4. Daniel Alfredsson – Detroit Red Wings – He will have instant chemistry on this team and will fit in perfectly. Would love to grab Stanley Cup before he retires and this may be his last chance
  5. Kyle Okposo – New York Islanders – He is going to be on the Isles top line with Matt Moulson and John Tavares. No matter who plays with them they will put up points
