Playoff Pool Player Rankings

Jan Levine

Jan Levine

Levine covers baseball, basketball and hockey for RotoWire. In addition to his column writing, he's the master of the MLB and NHL cheatsheets. In his spare time, he roots for the Mets.

Here are my 2014 playoff rankings, based on a final four of Montreal-New York and Colorado-San Jose, with a finals of Montreal-Colorado, and Stanley Cup champ of Colorado.

My rankings are based on games played and expected points per game, PPP, +/- and PIMs by skaters and wins/shutouts by goalies. If your quarters, semis and finals differ, adjust rankings accordingly.
