“Happy Monday!!!!!!” (said no one ever). No but really let’s take something down in these NHL streets and make it a good day.
These are based on ownership, projections and upside so always take that into account.
“But Woody Buffalo is bad and their Implied Team Total (ITT) is the third lowest on the slate!”. Exactly….. Chicago is also #NotGood and allowing close to 4 goals per game over their last five. If I can get Tuch, Skinner, Krebs, Tage and co at low ownership in this matchup on a five game slate I’m gonna pull the trigger.
Players to build around: Skinner, Thompson
The Canes are good. The field knows their good. They’ll draw significant ownership. They still grade out pretty well for me because of their pricing and projection. I’m comfortable pairing them with Buffalo in small or large field gpp’s although that pairing may make me consider goalie ownership in large field contests.
Players to build around: DeAngelo, Trochek (Aho if you’re building around L1)
Do not pair the Oilers with the Canes in large field tournaments unless you’re playing a low owned line. Those two along with the Caps look like they’ll be the highest owned teams but there is still leverage to be had by mixing and matching appropriately.
Players to build around: Barrie, Nugent-Hopkins
