I continue my yearly rankings. As always numbers is players ceiling in points per game (ppg), excluding anomalous seasons with inflated ppg, which happens 1 or 2 times in a career and probability of reaching them in parentheses. Last time i talked about changes in NHL hockey (more positional and less dynamic) starting from 14-15 season. This changes apply to 17-18 season. I want to note that in 4th season of positional hockey 1,1 ppg forwards were able to adapt and show their best or near it. But 1,4-1,6 ppg forwards still can't fully adapt. Keep in mind my rankings is for normal hockey, since we don't have enough information about positional.
