Every week, Hockey Prospectus release their top 10 player rankings based on their GVT metric. For baseball fans, the closest comparison is probably WAR. GVT measures a players value in goals above what a replacement level player would contribute. This week, the Flyers' Jeff Carter came in at No. 10.â†µ
"Last season it seemed the Carter trade rumors would never stop, but with an 11-year contract signed, Carter looks to be a Flyer for life, an arrangement that so far is working out well. Carter's 173 goals lead all Flyers since the lockout."â†µ
Daniel Sedin, Steven Stamkos, Sidney Crosby, Ryan Kessler & Brad Richards are their top five skaters.
