Today is an extremely odd day for a hockey schedule. Games are spread all through the day. I will cover just Fanduel and the 1 pm slate as that is all they offer today. Also, this will be very short as I am covering for Kick today and am about to head out for the day
Mr. Pucks’ Profound Three
I was asked if these are three players people should use. What I suggest is building around at least one of my three choices. Let us take a look at my top three.
Jack Eichel (Buf) - Center- ($7200 FD)
All Jack all day. Time for Eichel to have his game. Dallas will give him all the room he needs to score. 100% exposure in both cash and gpp.
Max Pacioretty (Mon) - Wing- ($7600 FD)
The Habs goaltending may be shaky, but their offense is not. Patches has turned it up to overdrive and will pick apart the RedWings. Two goals and an assist.
Nikita Kucherov (TB) -Wing- ($8000 FD)
The Lightning head into LA, to take on a Kings team that has overcome a lot this season. Kucherov will overcome their Defense and score two goals with six shots on net.
Mr. Pucks’ Sleeper play of the night
Joel Ward (SJ) - Wing - ($3700 FD)
Ward picks his spots to remind people he has skill. Today will be that day. He will get us a goal with four shots on net and hit 5x value.
Teams To Target
A few teams to target and build your lineups around.
Tampa Bay Lightning - Top two lines are great plays with Headman on defense
Buffalo Sabres - The Eichel line will be popular, as will the 2nd line. Ristolainen on defense.
Boston Bruins - Their top two lines should factor in most the offense. Krug is great on defense as is Carlo.
New York Islanders - I think they will be low owned. Great GPP team. Top two lines are great plays. Leddy on defense. Also like De Haan and Seidenberg.
Montreal Canadiens - Target the top line and 3rd line in GPP.
**As always check before puck drop to see starting goalies, as things change**
I will list a few goalies and if you want them in cash, GPP, or both.
Price - Cash
Bishop - Cash/GPP
Lehner - GPP
Rask - GPP/Cash
