Need to know who to pick up in your keeper league? THN.com fantasy expert Darryl Dobbs lays out the top 300 players in the NHL based on their potential-points value. 

December keeper league player rankings

Ratings are a reflection of a player's trade value in keeper league fantasy hockey pools. They reflect a player's predicted points, historical points, injury risk, playoff value, power play time, and long-term potential. Basically, if you are in a keeper league, this is The Dobber's opinion based on his statistical model of a player's "trade value." Naturally, individual trades would depend on the direction you are taking with your team at the present.
