Reid joins me once again to look at a few different topics. I promise we kept the election talk to a minimum! Partially because we needed a break from things. Anyways, we start off by looking at the Jets explosion against the Stars, Connor McDavid vs. Sidney Crosby and the Kings dismantling the Maple Leafs. Around the 21 minute mark, we focus on a bunch of different players debating whether or not they are holds or simply streamers. We follow that up around the 33 minute mark by looking at the next tier below the questionable holds, namely guys who are debatable streamers. We then do a quick breakdown of head to head goaltending strategy before finishing things up with The Three Point Challenge. A bunch of people have been hitting it lately so we run through them and the current standings (posted below). All of that and more in this week’s edition of the Razzball Hockey Podcast!

Thursday’s Streamers -It’s the usual big slate tonight with 10 games on the docket. Here are my top three streamers:
Patrick Eaves (6.1%) – Going back to the well. A matchup with the Flames is perfect for Eaves who has 4 points in his last 4 games despite the struggles of the Stars. Excellent spot to take advantage of.
Nino Niederreiter (14.6%) – While it’s far from a great matchup, Nino has moved up to the top line for a Minnesota team that has been playing some strong hockey. I like his chances to produce with the minutes boost.
Nic Petan (0.0%) – I was going to go Kyle Connor (a solid streamer as well) but decided to go with Petan. The minutes have been solid in his first three games getting power play time and centering the second line. I picked Blake Wheeler to get three points so I’m doubling down hoping his center performs as well. Don’t let me down guys!
Please put your Three Point Challenge picks in the section below along with any other questions and comments you have. Matt’s Goalie Report will be out this afternoon so be sure to read that and I’ll be back on Friday morning with daily notes. Take care!
