Here are the top right wingers ranked in descending order based on their value in 10 or 12 team "Banger Leagues". A typical banger league consists of goals, assists, plus/minus, penalty minutes, power-play points, shots on goal, hits and blocked shots for skaters.
The gap between Pavelski and Kane is a lot closer in a banger league compared to a standard league. San Jose's captain had 147 hits last season to go along with a surprisingly impressive 67 blocks for a forward. As long as he stays on Joe Thornton's line he's a lock for 35 goals.
MacKinnon isn't the most physical player out there, but his 53 blocks from a season ago are quite impressive. He is expected to move back to the wing, where he had his most success as a rookie. Don't be shocked if he winds up with 70-plus points. The firing of head coach Patrick Roy will certainly help the team's possession numbers.
Kessel was one the of the biggest draft busts from a year ago. He gained great chemistry with C Nick Bonino and LW Carl Hagelin down the stretch and in the postseason, but because of his third-line status, his ceiling is limited. He can still garner 30 goals and 65 points, but he had just nine hits and 13 blocks last season.
Komarov had a career-year offensively, scoring 19 goals in 67 games. Toronto head coach Mike Babcock really seems to like the pesky Finn, so he should remain in a top-six role, potentially alongside Auston Matthews. He can win you hits practically every week after racking up 283 in 2015-16.
Jagr's 18.9 shooting percentage was the highest of his career since the 1996-97 season when he scored 47 goals in 63 games. Don't expect him to reach 27 goals again.
Radulov is nothing more than a late-round flier. Don't expect anything more than 25 goals or 50 points.
