Part 2 of our look at where you can go wrong by drafting purely off a magazine draft list continues with our underrated players. (Part 1 called out those over-rated players).


Nathan MacKinnon (Yahoo:25 / landsharkhockey:9)
If you trust Yahoo, you're missing the boat. MacKinnon will dominate for the next decade.

Anze Kopitar (THN:29 / landsharkhockey:12)
Kopitar could carry your team for long stretches. He will be gone by round 3.

Jordan Eberle (NHL:58 / landsharkhockey:13)
I don't get being down on Eberle. The Oilers will score goals in bunches, and he'll be right there in the middle of it.

Kyle Okposo (Yahoo:59 / landsharkhockey:24)
Last I checked, he's still riding shotgun to J.T.

Patric Hornqvist (Yahoo:60 / landsharkhockey:27)
Hornqvist = Neal. Whether it's Crosby or Malkin dishing him the puck, he will finish.

Jonathan Drouin (THN:72 / landsharkhockey:34)
Maybe THN foresaw the injury - or maybe they're missing the boat on this dynamic rookie on a fantasy heavy Tampa roster.

Marian Gaborik (THN:71 / landsharkhockey:37)
He's inconsistent, but a goal scoring machine who quietly reemerged in the playoffs.

Nail Yakupov (NHL:153 / landsharkhockey:53)
Again with the Oiler hate. Nail will be much better this time around.

Ondrej Palat (Yahoo:102 / landsharkhockey:58)
No love for the Calder nominee. Even if he doesn't improve in year 2, he's surely a top 100 pick, Yahoo.

Beau Bennett (THN:243 / landsharkhockey:68)
Apparently, THN hasn't seen the Penguins play with Bennett in the lineup. A healthy stretch on Sid's wing will do wonders towards changing their minds.

Joffrey Lupul (THN:142 / landsharkhockey:74)
Lupul will get action with some pure goalscorers in Toronto. Ignoring him at 142? Your loss.


Dustin Byfuglien (Yahoo:27 / landsharkhockey:4)
Perplexing. Even if he really does stay anchored to the blue line, he'll pot 10+ goals.

Drew Doughty (THN:38 / landsharkhockey:6)
Doughty is top 3 in pure talent and certainly top 10 in fantasy impact on defense. This must have been a misprint, THN.

Brent Burns (Yahoo:31 / landsharkhockey:12)
Yes, he's "officially" moved back to defense, but even the off chance that he shifts back occasionally bumps his value way above 31.

Seth Jones (NHL:51 / landsharkhockey:18)
The youngster will break out this year, despite what the experts at NHL tell you. Peter Laviolette will see to that.

Jacob Trouba (NHL:41 / landsharkhockey:12)
No way to sugarcoat this one. NHL is wrong.

Tyson Barrie (NHL:29 / Yahoo:24 / landsharkhockey:13)
Not a horrible miss, but Barrie is running the powerplay on the team who will score the most goals this season. Do the math and get back to me.


Corey Crawford (NHL:9 / Yahoo:9 / landsharkhockey:2)
Crawford in Chicago. Chicago = Wins. Find me 8 goalies better than Crawford, please.

Marc-Andre Fleury (Yahoo:11 / landsharkhockey:4)
This isn't the playoffs. Fleury is a top notch regular season goalie.

Antti Niemi (NHL:11 / landsharkhockey:5)
No goalie gets less respect than Cup winning Niemi. He piles up wins and nobody notices.

Jake Allen (Yahoo:34 / NHL:32 / landsharkhockey:12)
I guess this comes down to whether you believe in Allen or Elliot as the #1 in St. Louis. I believe in Allen.

John Gibson (Yahoo:30 / landsharkhockey:22)
Somebody at Yahoo missed the playoffs last season. I thought I had him ranked too low 22.
