It’s here!  The 2021 NHL Season will finally start at 5:30 EST tonight in a battle of Pennsylvania.  I’m going to give some late minute updates in this post for your streaming and DFS needs.  Let’s get to it!

The lines in Philadelphia are quite different than we are used to.  Most notably, Kevin Hayes is starting the season centering Claude Giroux and Joel Farabee, while Hayes is also playing on the first power play unit.  He had a solid first season in Philadelphia, but year two could be even better.  Hayes had only seven PPP last season so if that increases on the top unit, he could play into a bottom end hold.  Worst case, he should be an elite streamer.

After yesterday’s post breaking down my 10 most undervalued players (you can read that here), it’s time to do the ten most overvalued.  I’ll be following the same format as yesterday telling you why I feel that way about each of these players.  Let’s get right to it!

Carey Price – A good playoffs has people believing in Price again.  I’ll value the past three seasons more than a ten game sample size in the bubble.

The title says it all.  Today, I’m going to hit on the ten guys that I like most to break out this season.  With the season a week away, I won’t have to time to do a ton of sleeper posts, so I decided it would be best to highlight these players and then follow it up with players I expect to disappoint this season in tomorrow’s post.  Let’s get to it!

One of my favorite things to read and write about is the failures of the rankings of popular sports websites.  Every year, I’m excited to read Grey destroying the rankings of ESPN, Yahoo, etc.  Well, normally I spend my time crucifying ESPN, but they changed their rankings to reflect a point system that is absolutely atrocious.  Additionally, their projections are so bad that if you need a laugh, I highly suggest checking them out.  Maybe you think Max Domi will magically play 140 games too, or that Robert Thomas won’t play a game this season!  The point projections are completely out of whack as well.  Instead, I’m going to focus on the consensus rankings of the Yahoo! staff, and show you where their downfalls are so you can exploit them if you draft on their website.  Let’s get to it!

With no exhibition games this season, it’s going to be harder to predict what lines and pairing teams are going to use.  Thankfully, there are some coaches, such as Ralph Krueger in Buffalo, who made it clear from Day 1 of practices who would be playing together.  In this post, I’m going to hit on some notable decisions around the league and how they impact fantasy hockey.  Let’s get to it!

Happy New Year to everyone!  I’ve gone through each position thoroughly over the last week so now, it’s putting together a top 200 list.  I will provide some addition commentary next week, but in this post, it’s simply going to be a list.  If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, leave them in the comments section below.

We’re moving to the last part of my rankings before my top 200 list today with the second part of the forward rankings.  You can read part one here.  I’m going to go about this part of the rankings a bit different than usual.  I’m going to do a “best of the rest” section to start off, then I’m going to break down the rest of the forwards into three categories: safe, upside, and specialists.  Once you get through the “best of the rest” forwards, we’ll be well past the top 100 overall, so at that point in the draft, you need to be targeting what you need.  Therefore, following a strict rankings list wouldn’t really be the best thing you could do for your team.  Obviously ask any questions you have in the comments section, but I suspect that this help quite a bit in the later parts of drafts as a supplement to my top 200 list.  Let’s get to it!
