Everyone knew that Elias Pettersson was an elite prospect who was going to score plenty in the NHL.  In a year where rookies around the NHL actually look like rookies, Pettersson is lighting the world on fire.  Petterson scored two goals and added three assists in the 7-6 win over Colorado on Friday, boosting his totals to an insane 9+6 in 9 games so far.  Obviously he’s not going to shoot 39% all season, but after lower minutes to open the year, Pettersson has played at least 18 minutes in each of the last four games, including the last two over 20.  For redrafts, he should be a borderline top 50 player this season.  In dynasties, Pettersson is a top 20 talent.  Let’s take a look at what else happened over the weekend:

Friday’s Games:

Keith Yandle – Goal and an assist with three shots and two PIM.  Yandle has been outstanding in the opening month sitting at over a point per game with quality PIM and elite shots.  Given his usage, Yandle could be in line for a huge season.

Evgenii Dadonov – Goal and an assist with four shots.  Like Yandle, Dadonov has been great.  He’s currently on an eight game point streak and the shots are piling up.

Jonathan Huberdeau – Two assists.  The points have come in bunches but the overall totals are strong.

Roberto Luongo – 32 saves on 34 shots in the 4-2 win over the Jets.  Nice to see Strombone back between the pipes.  He should be owned everywhere despite getting less volume than most #1’s.

Blake Wheeler –  Two assists with a shot.  Wheeler is stockpiling the assists in the early going.  He’s a beast across the board, plain and simple.

Nathan MacKinnon – Two goals and an assist with eight shots, while Mikko Rantanen had three more assists.  What these guys are doing is insane.  Rantanen leads the league in points with 24 in 14 games, including 19 assists!  Meanwhile, MacKinnon has 11+10 putting on 4.5 shots per game.  It’s getting close to the point where they’re considering the best line in hockey.

Colin Wilson – Two assists with three shots.  That’s two strong games in a row for Wilson after eight blanks, but it’ll take a bit more for me to consider him anything more than a bottom end streamer.

Alex Kerfoot – Goal and an assist with two PIM.  It’s sad when 25 shots in 14 games is a nice upgrade, but that’s much better than what Kerfoot did last season.  He’s a middling streamer at this point.

Brock Boeser – Two goals and two assists with eight shots.  It’s safe to say that Boeser and Pettersson are enjoying playing together.  The Canucks are going to be damn good in a couple seasons.

Nikolay Goldobin – Two assists with a shot.  He’s the lucky guy playing with Boeser and Pettersson at the moment.  Goldobin has huge upside, but for now, he’s only a bottom end streamer.

Alex Goligoski – Three assists with a shot.  That’s a four game point streak for Gogo, totaling seven points.  I’m still passing though outside of deep leagues.

Saturday’s Games

The Sabres put up 9 goals on Saturday against Ottawa, seven of which were in the first 28 minutes of the game.  Running down every player seems like a waste, so the notables:

Jason Pominville – Two goals and an assist with six shots.  Since the top line has been together, Pominville and Jeff Skinner (2+1, 5 SOG) lead the league in points with 13, while Jack Eichel (3A, 3 SOG) has 12.  They’re dominating, and they should all be owned.  As mentioned before, Pominville will almost certainly slow down, but you have to ride the hot schmotato.

Kyle Brodziak – Two goals on four shots with two PIM.  And there’s your annual Brodziak update!

Jujhar Khaira – Two assists with a shot.  Another fourth liner who doesn’t mean jack for fantasy.

Connor McDavid – Two assists with two shots.  It almost feels disappointing that McDavid had two points against Detroit.

Gustav Nyquist – Two assists with a shot.  Nyquist is piling up the assists with 11 in 14 games (and one goal).  That’s a middling streamer with upside if Detroit trades him into a better situation.

Andrei Vasilevskiy – 34 saves on 35 shots in the 4-1 win over Montreal.  Business as usual for Vas as he improved to a 1.98/.935 line in 10 starts.  And that’s why he was my #1 goalie in the preseason.

Steven Stamkos – Two goals assisted by Nikita Kucherov.  Only a matter of time until these two go on a massive tear.

Anton Stralman – Three assists.  One of the most underrated players of the past decade, Stralman doesn’t carry much fantasy value.

Thomas Greiss – 35 save shutout in the 3-0 win over the Devils.  Greiss has been incredible in the early going with a .944 save percentage in six starts, with his only dud coming against the powerhouse Predators.  I’d stream him in most matchups if you need goaltending help.  I’ve long been a fan of Greiss and could see him becoming a hold if he gets enough playing time.

Josh Bailey – Two assists with four shots.  Eight game point streak for Bailey who has done quite well without Tavares.  The shots still suck, but everything else is strong.

Frederik Andersen – 31 save shutout in the 5-0 win over the Penguins.  Great start to the year for Andersen who has a much lower GAA than I anticipated (2.28).  It will probably regress some, but the numbers will be #1 worthy come the end of the season.

John Tavares – Goal and an assist with six shots.  Tavares was spectacular in this game; the Penguins had no answer for him.  Great for him to step up with Matthews down.

Morgan Rielly – Two goals on three shots.  The jump we’ve all been waiting for from Rielly is happening before our very eyes.

Kasperi Kapanen – Two assists with three shots.  He’s a bottom end hold, although that could change very quickly depending on ice time and usage without Matthews.

Mitch Marner – Two assists with six shots.  Marner looks fantastic with Tavares as anticipated.

Jason Spezza – Goal and an assist with two shots.  Bottom end streamer while he’s getting top PP time.

Nicklas Backstrom – Goal and an assist with three shots.  We need more of these three shot games from Backstrom and less of the zeros.  We know the assists will be great, but the goals and shots are always up in the air.

Nick Seeler – Goal and two assists with four shots. Seeler didn’t have a point in his first twelve games this year and it was his first career goal in 35 games.  The bottom end guys for Minnesota killed the Blues on Saturday, but there’s nothing to see in fantasy.  Congrats on entering the Razzball Database!

Devan Dubnyk – 15 saves on 16 shots in the 5-1 win over the Blues.  Doesn’t get any easier than that for Dubnyk.

Jaroslav Halak – 39 saves on 40 shots as the tough luck loser in the 1-0 loss to Smashville.  Halak has been much better than Rask in the first month, but I have to assume Rask still gets the majority of the starts come the end of the season.  Halak is a borderline hold right now and should be streamed in every start until he cools down.

Roman Josi – Goal on ten shots.  Do as the Roman does!

Pekka Rinne – 26 save shutout in the 1-0 win over the Bruins.  He’s been great since coming back and there’s no reason to expect that to change with the team in front of him.

Elias Lindholm – Three assists with three shots.  The top line ruled the day as Sean Monahan scored twice and Johnny Gaudreau dished two assists.  They’ve all been great to open the season.  For some reason, Lindholm is still widely available in fantasy leagues.  He needs to be owned everywhere.

Mikael Backlund – Goal and an assist with five shots.  Backlund remains a middling streamer.

Erik Haula – Two assists with a shot and two PIM.  After a rough start, Haula has six points in his last six games.  He’s on the edge of middling and elite streamer, leaning towards middle because the shots have been wildly inconsistent.

Marc-Andre Fleury – 34 save shutout in the 3-0 win over Carolina.  Fleury has been rough to open the season with a .901 save percentage, and that’s after this shutout.  Regression was certainly coming, but the hope was that it wouldn’t be this bad.  I think we’ll see some bounce back, but expect Fleury to finish as a #2, not #1.

Jack Campbell – 26 saves on 27 shots in the 4-1 win over Columbus.  Campbell should probably be owned given that he’s the #1 for the foreseeable future, but there are going to be plenty of ups and downs behind that Kings team.

Dustin Brown – Goal and two assists.  Brown is picking up where he left off last season.  I can’t believe he’s bounced back to be fantasy relevant after being terrible for multiple seasons.

Jeff Carter – Goal and an assist with three shots and two PIM.  Carter is finally starting to round into form.  Being patient with him will be rewarding.

Drew Doughty – Two assists with a shot.  Doughty’s shot rate has really fallen off a cliff.  At this rate, he won’t sniff double digits, which is a huge problem for his value.  I still like him as a #2D, but there’s even some worry there.

Oskar Lindblom – Two assists.  He’s been playing well lately, but he blocked a shot in the third period and did not return.  He’s a bottom end streamer right now assuming he’s okay, but Lindbolm does have some upside.

Timo Meier – Two goals on five shots with two PIM.  One of my favorite breakout candidates is blowing away even my expectations for his best case scenario.  Meier already has 11 goals in 14 games.  Add in that he had 51 PIM last season and that he’s over 3 shots per game, and a top 50 season is well within reason.

Kevin Labanc – Two assists with two shots.  Solid streamer with upside to be a bottom end hold if he can find some consistency.

Jimmy Vesey – Two goals.  Don’t care outside of the deepest of leagues.

Henrik Lundqvist – 39 saves on 40 shots in the 3-1 win over the Sabres.  The King stay The King!  Hank had it going Sunday night.  He’s been damn good, but the wins and GAA aren’t going to be there because of the team in front of him.  Lundqvist should still be a quality source of save percentage.

Ryan McDonagh – Three assists with three shots.  As mentioned on Friday, McDonagh needs to be owned in all formats until Hedman returns.

Brayden Point – Goal and an assist with two shots.  Just a fantastic start for Point across the board with 8+9 in 14 games.

Mark Stone – Two assists with two shots.  He’s so damn good and I hope that Ottawa moves him.  In that case, Stone would get a big boost and could make a huge difference come playoff time.

Pierre-Luc Dubois – Two goals on three shots with six PIM.  I wrote a couple times that it was only a matter of time for Dubois to get going like his linemates are.  The minutes are insane so Dubois will take off sooner than later.

Seth Jones – Two assists with two shots.  Jones played over 30 minutes in this one on the second of a back-to-back, so it’s safe to assume that he’s just fine after coming back from injury.

Cam Fowler – Hat trick on six shots with two PIM.  The ultra-rare defenseman hat trick!  Fowler remains a bottom end hold; this game doesn’t change that.

That’s all for now guys.  Depending on how many goals there are in the games tonight, I might have daily notes on Tuesday.  Either way, I will have a set on Wednesday.  Lackeydrinksonme’s streamer post will be out this afternoon so be sure to check that out!  As always, feel free to ask any questions, leave any comments, or make any suggestions below.  Thanks for reading, take care!

    Hey Viz and guys, I need some help taking Brown out of IR and maybe adding an extra goalie.

    Categories: G, A, P, +/-, PIM, PPP, SOG, GWG / W, SV%, SV, GAA
    Positions: LW LW, C C, RW RW, D D D D, Util, G G, Bench x4 (17 Player Roster)
    3 player adds per week. No season add limit

    LW: Forsberg, Schwartz, Kreider
    RW: Boeser, Kovalchuk (LW), Stone
    C: Benn (LW), Stamkos (RW), Eichel, Rakell (LW, RW)
    D: Gostisbehere, Barrie, Shattenkirk, Chabot, Pionk
    G: Raanta, Crawford
    IR: Weber (D)
    IR+: Brown (RW)
    IR+: Empty

    1. Who do I drop To take out Brown?
    I need to drop a player. I think maybe it’s time to drop Shattenkirk or Pionk. I have Weber on IR so he might be able to replace him. (players available in FA: Dunn, Edler, Petry, N. Patrick, B. Nelson, Auberg)

    2. Grab and extra goalie or punt?
    I need to drop 2 players (maybe 2 out of Shattenkirk/ Pionk/ Brown) I’m having trouble keeping up with other team’s starts (most run 3-4 goalies), I struggle in SV (1-3-0) and W (2-1-1). Players available in FA: Kinkaid, Lehner, Reimer, Korpisalo, Rittich)

    Thanks for your help

    • Viz

      Viz says:

      @Veritas: I guess it would be Shattenkirk since Quinn keeps using Pionk on PP1.

      You’re going to keep losing saves purely on volume, and I don’t like going into the week knowing I’m going to lose saves. I kind of want to gamble on Rittich since he’s been solid and Smith doesn’t look NHL caliber right now. Korpisalo has been bad, Luongo just came back to hurt Reimer, Lehner is a consideration but Greiss is playing even better, and Kinkaid is worth considering too but Schneider is back. It’s one of those three, but Rittich has the most upside by a fair amount.

  2. Shitwolf says:

    hey buddy how was your weekend? I ended up picking up Greiss for now until.i could figure out my goalies… Grabaeur has been pretty disapointing so far and each week its been close to the 3 game min with him not seeing any volume its not worth holding 3 goalies in my league so was wonderijf who you would run with.
    thx man

    Greisser orna Grabber

    I have an extremely good problem. I am in a 14 team keeper league and am blessed with four great C’s with only three spots for them.

    E. Pettersson
    B. Point
    N. MacKinnon
    E. Malkin

    This is a weekly set your lineup and forget it league. Who sits of the four?

    • Viz

      Viz says:
      (link)

      @Det. John Kimbke: Honestly, it’s probably who plays the fewest games that week. All things equal, it has to be Pettersson or Point, and I’d probably say Point right now. MacKinnon and Malkin need to be in there all the time unless they play 2 games in a week or something.

  5. Chris says:
    (link)

    Drop one of the following when Tkachuk comes back…
    Perron, Schwartz or Tuch?
    The numbers would say Schwartz, but I’m not quite ready to throw the towel on him yet. I remember when he was rank in the top 20 last year around Xmas. Would you give up on him or hold into him in hope for a breakout?
    G/A/PPP/HITS/GWG/+-

    • Viz

      Viz says:
      (link)

      @Chris: If you want to give Schwartz some more time, it’s either Perron or Tkachuk himself. I know the points have been good for Perron, but I don’t really see it as sustainable, so I’d probably dump him.

  6. dubjay says:

    Hey Viz,
    How are things?
    It is starting to turn into must see TV everytime the Canucks play just to see what Pettersson does. Its not just hes skill either. Its his attitude. He just looks like hes having fun out there. He was drafted much higher than many projected. Canucks passed on a lot of great prospects like Middlestadt, Necas, Tippet, Glass and Vilardi to get him. I questioned the pick at the time but man do they look smart now.
    On that note, I managed to grab his linemate in Boeser off of waivers this weekend so I am now pretty stacked. Where would you look to improve? I was thinking of trying to upgrade either at LW or G? Skinner has been great so far but keep waiting for the wheels to fall off. Crawford started out great but has faded quickly. Seems like a shame to have players of Boesers talent waste away on the bench. Could swap out Trocheck and put Wheeler at C and Boeser at RW but Trocheck is a geat all around player as well. What do you think?
    C-STAMKOS(RW), TROCHECK
    LW-PANARIN, SKINNER(C)
    RW-KUCHEROV, WHEELER(C)
    D-SUBBAN, DUMBA, OEL, RISTOLAINEN
    BENCH-BOESER(RW), LARKIN(C), DUBOIS(LW/C)
    G-DUBNYK, RAANTA, CRAWFORD

    • Viz

      Viz says:
      (link)

      @dubjay: Hey Dub, no complaints. Definitely looks brilliant that they took Pettersson at this point. Do you get to change your lineup daily or is it weekly set? If it’s daily, I see no reason to make any changes at all. Your lineup has versatility so you should be able to make your starts quite easily. I don’t know why you expect Skinner to fall off either, he’s in the perfect situation to produce. Obviously not at this rate, but I expect a career high in goals and assists.

      • dubjay says:
        (link)

        @Viz:
        Its a Yahoo standard scoring roto league. So I have a limited number of games out of each postion. Daily changes. With that scoring, I like to be as strong as possible at each starting position. Thats why I was thinking of upgrading somewhere else. Maybe I could buy low on a struggling starting goalie. Any goalies you expect to rebound I could buy low on? Maybe Holtby, Hellebuyck, Murray or Bobrovsky?I dont really see how to get Boeser in there right now which is kind of insane. Just seems like a waste to have a talent like that sit on the bench.

        • Viz

          Viz says:
          (link)

          @dubjay: Ah okay, that makes more sense, my fault. I definitely wouldn’t change your starting lineup for now, so Boeser is kind of being wasted. I still like all of those guys, although I like Murray the least. I think Hellebuyck is the safest, then Bob, then Holtby, so targeting one of them could be a way to go. I’m just not sure how much better they’ll be over the crop of goalies you have since goaltender variance is so high. You might be better off trying to get another stud defenseman if possible.

    Thank you guys for all you do. Makes the Monday morning “what should I do at work” grind a lot better, ha. Look at fantasy hockey, duh!

    I’m attempting to post a comment on Lackey’s article, and it looks like it’s not letting me. Just posting this as a thank you for what you do, and seeing if this posts. If it does, I may post my question here.

    OK, in a kinda weird league this year. H2H points where values are as follows:

    Forwards/Defensemen Stat Category Value
    Goals (G) 6
    Assists (A) 4
    Plus/Minus (+/-) 2
    Powerplay Points (PPP) 2
    Shots on Goal (SOG) 0.9
    Blocks (BLK) 1

    Goaltenders Stat Category Value
    Wins (W) 5
    Goals Against (GA) -3
    Saves (SV) 0.6
    Shutouts (SHO) 5

    Got offered Burns and Paccioretty (who I’d probably drop) to give up Panarin & Dumba. What do you think? Here’s my team:

    C – Malkin
    C – Sheifele
    LW – Panarin
    LW – Guentzel
    RW – Kessel
    RW – Atkinson
    D – Dumba
    D – Sergachev
    D – C. Miller
    D – Hampus Lindholm
    BE – Reinhart C,RW
    BE – Dubois C,LW
    BE – Jeff Carter C
    IR – Dustin Brown RW (havent taken him off yet)
    IR – Bjugstad C,RW,LW (havent taken him off yet)

    G – Murray
    G – Raanta
    BE – Allen

    Honestly I like my team, although pretty much everyone is off to a slow start. I’d like an upgrade at D (especially for Miller) but I’d prefer to give up a RW and not give up Dumba. Still, I feel like I’d win this trade. Should I accept and figure the rest of the team out later?

    • Viz

      Viz says:
      (link)

      @Mookie Cookie: I’m not sure this makes you better effectively losing two guys for one. It depends on what is available on your waiver wire. Your defense definitely needs help at the bottom, so I’d try to rework the trade using forwards instead of giving Dumba back.

    was wondering your thoughts on a few players that I see on my Ww I can grab 1 or Bailey Brady Tkatchuk Nolan Pattrick Svechnikov or JVR. Any of those stand out as an obvious grab? i have been a bit light on hits if that helps but i could always stream borowacki or something too lol

    thx dude its nice having overwatch

    • Viz

      Viz says:

      @Shitwolf: I don’t think any of them are obvious, although I like JVR the most once he returns. If you need hits, then Tkachuk is the choice.

    yep, MORE reasons to use cabs not ubers. cabs are licensed, AND they know it’s not cool to tape you when you are in them. imagine paying some POS who’s about to damage your at work life simply from being a douche to drive you around, since that what these scumbags do. where i live they just went about trying to make this illegal.

      @The Harrow: funny thing is here he’s F’ing with millionaires (or those soon to be). wait guys, let this guy have something befall him in about 5 years, get ready with your
      “couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy” comments ready.

    • Viz

      Viz says:
      (link)

      @The Harrow: I couldn’t disagree with this more. Spending a lot of time travelling and living in a city who didn’t have ride share until <18 months ago, uber/lyft is infinitely better. I have been taped in cabs before, have dealt with plenty of shitty cab drivers, and I have never had one bad experience in an uber. They also cost half the price most places, if not even less than that (in Vegas, a cab is more than double the cost). You will never see me in a cab again if I can help it.

      • The Harrow says:
        (link)

        @Viz: price wise for where you are sounds much better, but this taping thing for these millionaires at least THEY shouldn’t want to take these things, esp since being professional athletes they probably get targeted in this kind of shit way more than you or me would.

        – where were you taped in a cab? i’ve only heard of this happening in ubers (and i’ve heard of it a LOT, where i live they are trying to outlaw it specifically). also the few times somebody i know took an uber (these were hollidays to be fair, when ubers are probably at their worst prices) and i compared what they paid to what i know a cab would’ve cost me in that area the uber was worse.

        – also, the thing in the super bowl where fans of MIN intentionally became uber drivers ONLY to F with PHI fans (i.e. at the least pick them up and drive them to wrong places), i know i’ve never heard of cab drivers doing that, since they are actually licensed and would assumedly do decent background checks (compared to uber anyway). i read about this and it was funny as shit that a company would allow this one to happen and the press from it wouldn’t tank their business pretty badly. they either intentionally became uber drivers only to F with PHI fans OR (worse) already WERE uber drivers and did this. either way that’s a giant black mark on a company to have allowed that one. worst thing i’ve had in a cab driver was a guy didn’t know where he was going and (had i paid it) would’ve cost me triple what it should’ve, but i didn’t have to pay it when i very clearly explained to him and the cab company about it (actually he didn’t make me explain it to the cab company since it would’ve made him look so bad, i paid him what it SHOULD have cost and we were done when he finally got me to the correct location)

        – good advice for LV for sure anyway though for the price breaks. not being too much of a potential rape victim i will probably use them there if i need to rather than cab if that much cheaper. as a woman i certainly wouldn’t though (not alone anyway).

        – this specific uber driver needs to have some stuff broken for him in an accident in a few years after he’s not so linked to these millionaires he found it funny to fuck with. senators have far enough problems to have their players catch this shit.

    Hey Viz,
    first off im on your side when it comes to uber. Makes travel a lot less shady as well. You dont have to worry as much about taking a taxi in places which are notorious for driving you around on a wild goose chase to pump up the meter. Bangkok comes to mind.
    Wondering if you are starting Dubnyk against all opponents at this point in a roto league or if you would sit him in games like tonight in San Jose.

    • The Harrow says:
      (link)

      @dubjay: i was only vouching for licensed cab companies in the u.s. in areas at least around cities over unlicensed uber in the u.s. it’s quite possible in bangkok somebody who drives uber is somehow safer than a cab guy. again i’m not a likely rape victim, so i have less reason to fear ubers as say a lone woman might.

      https://www.newsweek.com/uber-and-lyft-drivers-accused-more-120-rapes-and-sexual-assaults-report-906544

      this is similar to if drugs were legal, yes they would be taxed (possibly cost more) but there would be some sort of check and balance on what exactly you are buying. heroin sometimes gets cut with whatever that might kill you, but if you could buy it at CVS it would just be heroin (and you’d know the %), since it’s a licensed product. similarly cab drivers have background checks, their companies themselves subject to governmental regulations etc, not uber. just some guy who decided he’ll drive some people around. if you get raped, “hey lady you got a car with some dude” and if you buy deadly heroin “well you bought heroin off some guy on the corner” oh but his last 20 buyers said it was good shit, well that’s awesome, you still relied on some dude on the corner and are now dead.

      ebay is a similar comp, in ebay you get a feedback score/rating, but IF say a guy with an awesome feedback score screws you over, you still get your money back eventually. you are protected by that.

      play dubs all the time.

        @The Harrow:
        Well drugs ARE legal where i live. Been legal in Canada since last month. Interesting to see how things are changing.
        In bangkok the cabs are basically controlled by the mafia. At least the ones near khao san road. They are notorious for speeding up the meter etc as well. So we just avoid them altogether now and order uber everytime. Nice to know what it will cost ahead of time.

          @dubjay: agreed, if the cabs were known mafia or worse owned i’d also use ANY other driving service (i.e. uber). where i’ve been the drugs mostly aren’t legal (i didn’t know heroin was legal anywhere in canada, cool to hear) but cabs aren’t mob either.

            @The Harrow: i wasn’t including weed as a drug, that stuff is getting legal even in places in the states for a while now. and in others it’s barely illegal too in normal sized ownership amounts.

      @dubjay: It’s pretty close with Dubnyk, I ended up playing him yesterday. Having watched the whole game, the goals were the result of horrible defense, not his poor play. I would play him in the vast majority of matchups, but if you want to sit him at teams like Nashville and Winnipeg, that makes sense.

    My bad. Although it is pretty obvious that i meant weed.
    Uber you get the price up front. This helps you avoid the “tour around the city” that cab drivers like to take you on. And that happens everywhere. Not just in south east asia. Id much rather take an uber anytime.

    Do you see any value in holding Cam Atkinson? 16 team H2H with hits/blocks

      @Jumponit: also would you drop Brayden Schenn for Adam Lowry/hot streamer?

      @Jumponit: He has 6+5 and over three shots per game, that’s a hold in 10 man, let alone 16. I would give Schenn a little bit more time.
