Ok, I believe these are gonna be my final lists. Seeing how I got the help from these boards in making some decisions I've decided I will share them.

I would definately bump up Backstrom(Min) drop Backstrom(Was). Maybe drop Campbell (Chi). Gaborik is too high for his injury risk. What do you think about Phil Kessel too?

For Backstrom(min) I can't see putting him any higher. Harding is going to be on his heels all year and probably going to get 20 starts taking away from Backstroms wins.
I think Backstrom will still come away with 30 plus wins but still isn't enough to put him higher on the list.
The keepers above him now all are looking to 40+ wins this season with great stats.
Backstrom(wsh) I've often though of bumping him down to 16th moving #16(Nash) and below all up one notch. But with him centering a line of Ovechy and Knuble it's tough not to expect a huge year. I still think he's the third best Center in the league to have this year. (I'm not counting Malkin as a center if you're wondering)
Cambell has consistently hit 50+ points the last three seasons in a row. Chicago is getting better by the season, Cambell is good for atleast 55 points this year with a ton of shots. This is also keeping in mind that I'm in a first year keeper league starting this season. This guy is only gonna get better.
Gaborik has been a thorn in my side since starting this list. I've had him everywhere on the list. I'm positive this is the year for a healthy Gabby. With torty being a run and gun coach I really think Gabby's stats will hit the roof this season. Being a RW really helps his ranking too!

I would think Nash is awesome but can't switch him up in the place of a RW. RW is so shallow for talent so the good ones, like StLouis get preference.
I would consider Kane over Semin. Semin could very well hit and pass 90 points this year should he stay healthy. Both are going to be playing 2nd line this year so it's all up to them how well they do. Not sure Kane will see as much pp time as Hossa will most likely get most of it. Semin is a monster on the pp so I'm sure he'll see more ice time.
Dustin Brown is a great pick but I have him as more of a sleeper.

And you should look at some of your older players like Lidstrom at number two? Way to injury prone, he's not gonna be drafted by me at all. And Brodeur at number 3? He kinda missed a whole season, not exactly reliable anymore. And Miller and Backstrom have crap teams with crap D which will get them poor stats and no wins.
Gaborik at 11? Niedemayer at 6?

Hey thanks for the feedback. Since your post I have re-evaluated my lists. Although I don't agree with all of your feedback I do agree with most of it.
I've moved Richards up to 20th. Being a center I don't value him as much as an 80pt winger. I'm sure he'll be top line on a very dangerous team.
Huet is down to 14th where he belongs. He'll get starts and wins for sure.
I've also made some other subtle changes but since you didn't mention any of the other players I'll save ya the long read.
Thanks again for putting your "two cents worth" in.
Neidermayer stays put at 6th. With dmen I take in consideration, shots,pims,points. He's getting old too.
Lidstrom is still one of that best,if not best, dmen in the league on a very good detroit team. I'm not so worried about injury.
As for Gabby, I'm one of the hopefuls that he's finally gonna have a full season. With that much natural talent it doesn't matter where he's playing, the points will come in bunches.
Brodeur, I have him fourth. I've been back and fourth about Thomas and Brodeur for a while now. All time best goalie or Vesna winner with a promise of getting better and better. This is a keeper league I'm in too so I like Thomas more.

Mike Richards definitey is a top ten player. He finished last year ranked at 7 the year before at 11 despite missing 12 games. This is coming from a Sabre fan so there no love for the flyers, but the kid can flat out play.
