PROJECTED 2014 SEASON STATS
1. John Tavares, NYI CYEARGPGAPTS+/-PIMPPPATOISOG

2014 Outlook: An ever-improving supporting cast, a winger who responds perfectly with his chemistry and a track record of consistent improvement make Tavares a tantalizing choice after the Big Four are off the board in your fantasy hockey draft. While there can be an argument to go goaltender at the No. 5 overall draft position, Tavares has certainly made a case for being considered in the same discussions as the elite forwards. Tavares took a big step forward with his goal scoring during the lockout-shortened campaign and even more help is on the way to make the Islanders' offense command some respect. Between newcomer Pierre-Marc Bouchard, rookie Ryan Strome and the still-improving Kyle Okposo, Tavares and Matt Moulson will find a new threat for their top line that could help Tavares boost his overall numbers into that upper echelon of fantasy forwards.
2. Jaroslav Halak, NYI GYEARGSWLSOMINOTLGAASV%
2013 Statistics1565381212.14.899
2014 Projections4021166228032.16.914
2014 Outlook: One-third of the NHL's only three-man goalie Halak is believed by some to be the alpha dog of the group: his 2.14 goals-against average was the lowest of the group. On the other hand, he posted the lowest save percentage (.899) of the trio; the low goals-against and low save percentage are a testament to Ken Hitchcock's system, a system which can yield a lot of victories on the ice, but not the gaudy save percentage stats that we love in fantasy. Halak's projection is therefore limited, and along with the fact that he's in a timeshare, his ceiling is that of a No. 2 for our purposes.
3. Lubomir Visnovsky*, NYI DYEARGPGAPTS+/-PIMPPPATOISOG
2013 Statistics35311141220822:4869
2014 Projections768283610442223:00143
2014 Outlook: Once resigned to leaving his Slovakian homeland for what remained of the post-lockout 2013 season, Visnovsky enjoyed a fairly productive campaign (14 points in 35 games, team-leading plus-12) with his new squad, the New York Islanders. In fact, everything went so swimmingly, the two sides agreed to consummate the relationship with a two-year extension in late March. Now that Mark Streit has departed for Philadelphian pastures, Visnovsky holds the top offensive defenseman crown on Long Island all to himself. A 40-point drive from the 37-year-old is well within reach.
