We don't know exactly how much hockey, if at all, we'll see this season, but while we sit and wait for Donald Fehr and Gary Bettman to come to an agreement fantasy hockey has arrived.

Registration is open for the 2012-13 NHL season and you can jump in a mock draft at any time before your regular league holds theirs.

New for 2012:

New Commissioner Tools

  • Import traded draft picks from last season
  • Set a keeper deadline and allow fantasy managers to declare keepers
  • Approve keepers and assign them to your draft

Polls

  • Add a poll to your league message board
  • Reach quick consensus on league issues
  • Add up to 10 voting options

Playoff Reseeding
Reseed your championship bracket automatically so the highest seeds always play the lowest seeds

Predetermined Random Draft Order
Randomize your live draft order before your draft date

Configurable Draft Pick Times
Change the time allowed per draft pick to speed up or slow down your live draft

Topic Pinning
Keep your most important league topics at the top of the message board

After the jump, your top 100 players for 2012-13, according to the Y! Fantasy Hockey staff.

1. Steven Stamkos
2. Evgeni Malkin
3. Claude Giroux
4. Sidney Crosby
5. Alex Ovechkin
6. Henrik Lundqvist
7. Corey Perry
8. Daniel Sedin
9. John Tavares
10. Jonathan Quick

Giroux was No. 54 in the Y! rankings last year and after a 93-point campaign he gets the No. 3 spot. Can he repeat his success with Jaromir Jagr in Dallas? Concern for Crosby will always be there with his concussion history. He had two comebacks last season and potted 37 points in 22 games. Would you take him higher than No. 4 in your league?
