I agree with the Edler evaluation.

With Hamhuis, from a fantasy league perspective (which is based on points and penalty minutes I believe) it makes sense. He's a good defender, but for a fantasy league he won't give you what Edler will give you. Doesn't mean he's a bad player.

Kesler is the guy who has the potential for a huge rebound season. Certainly better than where they have him.

Hansen is a sleeper. He was 3rd in Canuck scoring last season, but generally plays a checking role. He's playing for a new contract, so we'll have to see where that takes his offensive numbers.

Booth could be a late sleeper, but with substaintial risk.

The question is whether Kassian can stay on the Sedin line or not. I don't think he will, at least not for all 82 games, certainly. But if he does, that's a HUGE plus for this team.

The other question is if Schroeder emerges as a scoring threat.

But the biggest beneficiary of a Torts-coached team will be Luongo. Both Khabi and Lundy have had their best seasons under Torts, and guaranteed Luongo himself will be ultra-motivated to retain his Olympic starting job.
