It’s opening night! After looking at some recent injuries, signings, and demotions, Reid and I finish our season preview by looking at the Western Conference over/unders and prop bets. Lines also came out for the Art Ross, Rocket Richard, Norris and Vezina Trophies so we look at all of the available options and pick some bets where we see fit. We close by previewing opening night along with a couple games from Thursday and Friday night. All of that and more in the latest edition of the Razzball Hockey Podcast!

If Mathieu Perreault is available, use him. He’s owned more than 20% so here are the three guys I like most under my normal standards:
Sean Couturier (17.8%) – All signs point to Couturier centering the first line tonight. I don’t love him as an offensive player but he’s worth using in this role.
Sam Bennett (14.0%) – I still believe in Bennett and he should get power play time on the second unit. The game with Edmonton is potentially high scoring so I’ll take my chances.
I wanted to do Kailer Yamamoto as my third but he’s not even in the ESPN player pool which is hilariously bad. If he’s available, use him ahead of the next guy.
Zach Hyman (5.2%) – He gets to play with Matthews and Nylander in the opener which puts Hyman firmly in play.
