With almost nothing to go on, creating a list of the best players in Fantasy is a bit of a gamble, but Ray Flowers offers his Top 200 for Draft Day.
After coming to the Avs in February via trade, Steve Downie recorded seven points in his first four games. However, he finished the season on a down note, managing just five helpers over his final 14 games, clearly suffering the results of a shoulder injury suffered March 3 against Pittsburgh. Fortunately, he underwent surgery soon after the season ended and has reportedly made a full recovery. Now with a new contract under his belt signed in July Downie should be ready to go once training camp arrives. Expect him to reprise his role playing on one of the Avs' top two lines next season.
