    Love the Carter and Zuc pick.. Kreider and Pearson will have a monster night to correlate. I also like Gallagher as a sneaky pick… Hes due

      @Bobby Boom: Thanks, I hope so! I’m definitely all in on the Rangers today as far as DFS goes. I’m not feeling the Kings as much as Reid but it is a good spot assuming they put Kopitar on Bergeron’s line and Carter gets the easier matchup.

      @Bobby Boom: I’ll say Schamltz (Panik if available), Jarnkrok and I’ll go back to the well with Leivo. No problem!

    Greetings from the land of the Vikings once more

    12 man H2H goals/assists/plus minus/pp/hits/blocks/wins/gaa/sv%/so

    Of these five, which three who would you choose for the rest of the season:

    Rakell
    Silfverberg
    Marcus Johansson
    Zibanajed
    Bjorkstrand

    My gut says rakell/silfverberg/zibanajed but I really wanna pull the trigger on bjorkstrand who’s sitting on the waivers and is getting time with wennberg who I also have.

    How would you value them moving forward and what are your general thoughts?

      @The Lost Vikings: Yeah, I feel like you have to go with those three because of their guaranteed roles going forward. The extra categories hurt Johansson putting him behind the others. I do love Bjorkstrand long term but I’m not sure he can match those other guys for the rest of the season.

      Long term, I would put Johansson in last and put Bjorkstrand in a tier with the other three.

      @Saints: Sounds good… Reid took Carter too so today I have to root against you haha, good luck!

    My only players on a bye are Allen and Lehner. So of course Gibson gets himself injured. Hoffmans out, Drouin got sick, and now it says Voracek is dtd. Wonderful.

      @Quick Sycamore: Brutal, I’m dealing with the same stuff this week, especially with my defense. Super frustrating.

      • Quick Sycamore says:
        (link)

        @Viz: Yeah it sucks. I’m in first place though, and I’m facing the guy in last. Currently I’m killing him, but I don’t feel good about the rest of the week. I’m worried Toews might win the week for him. And I play playoff teams the rest of the way. Hoping for a big win here.

  6. Give me a Friday streamer from this group Viz; Antoine Roussel vs ARI, Derick Brassard @ CAR, Vrbata @ DAL, Sean Monahan @ FLA, Marcus Johansson vs EDM, Matthew Tkachuk @ FLA, Sebastian Aho vs OTT. Any of these stand out to you as a best option(s)? Thanx!

      @madden_curser: man, I had daily notes schedules to go up this morning and it disappeared. Trying to figure out the issue now, not happy about it. Anyways, I’d probably go monahan just because he’s the best player but Roussel and brassard are both very tempting. You can do fine with any of them; you are a points league right? With Roussel’s hits I may actually take him, i’m second guessing myself haha

    Jonathan Marchessault for 3 pts tonight

    Hay VIz tomorrow is Trade Deadline in my dynasty League. With your help I’m in 4th place and I’m a buyer (i think i can go all the way with a little bit of luck).
    One owner is selling Kucherov would you give up a first rounder in next years draft for him ?

    • Viz

      Viz says:
      (link)

      @Saints: yeah I’d do that

      • Saints says:

        @Viz:
        The owner canceled his offer -.- That was a bit sad…

  9. Saints says:

    I got another offer i can get jokinnen for the rest of the year. (After this year his contract expires and i need to drop him) i like him to help my playoffpush. My opponent wants to have haydn fleury or jake deBrusk
    DeBrusk was a very high pick but it got a little bit quite about him and fleury has not the big offensive upside for fantasy. What do you think about these two guys ? Which guy Do you like more and would you Do the trade ?
    PS: what is you prefered website for prospectanalysis and news ? I was watching at
    http://www.hockeysfuture.com/ But the site looks “dead” there are no more updates. Thats really sad because it was awesome

      @Saints: yeah, I loved Hf but they don’t really use it anymore. I don’t really have one go to anymore, I just try to read up on team prospect reports every now and again.

      I like Debrusk quite a bit and agree with you that Fleury may not be great. I don’t know how much getting Jussi J helps your push but if you think it’s enough, I’d be fine with moving Fleury for him

        @Viz:
        It’s very sad that hocheysfuture is “down”

        I traded away DeBrusk for Jokinen the other owner wanted DeBrusk more and he gave me a mid round pick back…
        I hope it was a good deal. It was a little bit unfortunate that you were not online last night -.-

          @Saints: Well getting the pick back does help.. Hopefully Jokinen keeps up his good play so it works out 🙂

      @Saints: it’s been dead (i emailed them about it back in like may or june) for a while. sucks, it was very detailed.

    Another question (I’M sorry with the deadline its a little busy :D)
    Can you still see some real(14 Team league) upside in one of the following guys:
    Devante Pelly-Smith
    Reid Boucher
    Dimitrij Jaskin
    Ryan Murphy

    • Viz

      Viz says:
      (link)

      @Saints: no, I don’t see any of them being 14’er worthy

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @Saints: ah smith pelly from last year where have ye gone to… and jaskin whatever happened to yr upside?!

      • Viz

        Viz says:

        @goodfold2: I was never huge on DSP myself but I’m pretty surprised Jaskin hasn’t developed more.

  11. So I see Reimer is getting the Sunday start over Luongo (again). He’sgetting 2 of every 3 starts and has won 3 of his last 4 in the crease. Meanwhile Lou lost to Calgary Friday and is 3-5-1 with an .889 save percentage and 3.95 GAA over his past 10 games. We have a 3 G max., so I cannot stream Reimer (Rinne, Anderson, Luongo). Someone streamed Reimer and dropped him. The pl;ay=off run is getting to crunch time and I’m on the bubble with only a few weeks left. I know you said hold early in the week, but Lou keeps snowballing down the hill. You still a hold on Lou over Reimer Viz? Thanx for ur insight on the situation.

      @madden_curser:
      Is it important for the win this week ? If it is i would change at least for tonight and than watch what happens… but i think your better suited to hear viz opinion too 😀

    • Viz

      Viz says:
      (link)

      @madden_curser: I think I’d make the switch now, Luongo hinted at being hurt and is dealing with something nagging. He said himself that Reimer deserves to be playing more so I expect that to happen

    Oh boy, Bishop traded!

      @Quick Sycamore: Leading off tonight’s notes about it!

  13. Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:

    bishop’s owners just got proper F’d. his starts will be better now but probably many many less of them. in a 16 team roto dynasty where i can have as many TB goalies as i want but only 2 max unless at least 2 of them are from TB, i have
    vas/bishop/greiss. who’s my drop now. gotta be bishop, problem being he might get a better job in the offseason, so maybe it’s greiss.

    • Viz

      Viz says:

      @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: Yeah, I’m leading off tonight’s notes about it but this is horrible for him. Man, that’s brutal for you. What place are you in? If you’re contending, I think you have to dump Bishop but if you aren’t, I’d probably dump Greiss and gamble on Bishop landing somewhere nice.
