With the 2010-11 NHL season coming to a close, it's time take to take a look ahead at where the League's top players rank among the fantasy world for next season. These rankings take into consideration how players performed this season and how we expect them to play next season. They will obviously fluctuate during the offseason with playoff performances, trades and free-agent signings leading into the 2011-12 campaign -- but for now, here's a breakdown of the top players at each position.
Players that possess dual-position eligibility in standard Yahoo! Fantasy Leagues are included in multiple positional ranks -- they are signified with an asterisk.
26-50: Chris Pronger, Mark Giordano, Ryan Whitney, Alex Pietrangelo, Brent Seabrook, Jack Johnson, Ryan Suter, John Carlson, Erik Johnson, Tyler Myers, Dennis Wideman, Andrei Markov, Kevin Shattenkirk, Niklas Kronwall, Stephane Robidas, Joe Covo, Kimmo Timonen, Marc Staal, Dennis Seidenberg, Andrej Meszaros, Cody Franson, Travis Hamonic, Kevin Bieksa, Cam Fowler, Ryan Ellis
