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.
Like the rest of the Senators, Jason Spezza had a fine bounceback season in 2011-12 with 34 goals and 50 assists in 80 games, a 27-point improvement over the previous year while once again playing at better than a point-per-game. This season should see more of the same from Ottawas number one center as head coach Paul MacLeans puck possession game suits Spezza quite well. He'll likely start the year centering Milan Michalek on his left side, but his other winger might not be decided until after training camp, as there are a number of potential candidates. Expecting close to a point-per-game is reasonable based on Spezza's track record, with 35 goals being certainly achievable, as is a shot at 90 points. (Updated 8/14/12)
