The Maple Leafs went into the season wanting to limit the workload of their goaltending duo, but things have gone off the rails in the first month.  The good news is that if you own Jack Campbell in fantasy, you're reaping all of the benefits.  Campbell had a shutout against Nashville on Wednesday, saving 24 shots.  Is a 1.68/.943 good?  I had Campbell ranked as a top 10 goalie going into the season, but now, he's looking like a top 5 guy.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the last two nights:
In Ilya Sorokin's first two starts, he allowed ten goals.  In the next seven, he's allowed eight total.  Sorokin kept up his hot streak with a 24 save shutout against the Jets on Saturday.  Semyon Varlamov is back for the Islanders, but for now, Sorokin is getting all of the volume.  I had him pegged as a great platoon guy this year who ideally was your #3, but would be fine as a #2.  Now, it would be terrific if Sorokin is your #2 because he could easily end up being a top 10 goalie even without much volume.  The GAA and save percentage look to be elite while the wins on a per-game basis should be as well.  Long term, Sorokin looks like a top five goalie.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the weekend:
"Joonas Donskoi is pushing towards being an elite streamer.  Donskoi has eleven points in the past nine games while he received some shifts on the top PP unit on Monday as well."  And that's me quoting me from two days ago!  Well, Donskoi is certainly at that level now.  Donskoi had a hat trick in the first period on Wednesday, adding an assist and six shots in the 9(!)-3 win over the Coyotes.  Donskoi's third goal was on the PP with the top unit which does wonders for his value.  While he's this hot, Donskoi is worth holding.  I don't necessarily expect it to last, but he could easily stay an elite streamer for the rest of the season.  The way the Avalanche are playing right now, I want as much to do with their offense as possible.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the last two nights:
Hey guys! Sven back with the Buy, Sell, Hold segment for the second year. It’s pretty straight forward, players who are buys: you should pick up. Players who are sells: you should think about dropping or trading. Players who are holds: you may be thinking about dropping but don’t just yet! Just for clarification, the % I am going to put next to the players’ stat line is their %own on ESPN. For Buys, I usually focus on guys with a %own less than 50%. Let’s get started! This is a quick one today as I have been very busy, but I will try to start pumping these out every week again.
Hey guys! Over the next month, I will be taking a look at each team’s players to watch out for going into the 2019-20 fantasy hockey season. This analysis features everything from surefire studs, to sleepers, to streamers, deeper league holds, even to rookie-eligible prospects that may make an appearance at some point this season. Please let me know if you guys enjoy this type of material! Reminder that the stat totals are from last season. Last year my previews went alphabetically, but this year we’re going to go division-by-division, starting with the top team. On our 21st stop on the 31 in 31 tour, we’re shuffling off to Buffalo to talk about the Sabres! 50 years of existence for the Sabres, and what a time it should be to be rooting for them. With some interesting offseason moves to add some much-needed depth, will this be the year Buffalo claws for a wildcard spot?
For those of you doing well in your head to head leagues, this is the most important post of the year.  This is my annual playoff manifesto where I break down every team's schedule for the last four weeks of the season.  I tell you who are the best teams and players to stream from, who you should look to trade for or away if your deadline hasn't passed, and it allows you to plan ahead with ease.  For those who haven't read it in the past, the numbers in the parentheses are how many games the team plays in each of those weeks, with the last number being the last week in the season and preceding accordingly.  This is going to be a massive post so let's get right to the 2019 Playoff Manifesto!
Welcome to my favorite post of the year, my live trade deadline post!  From now until all of the trades come through later today, I will provide all of the details for each trade with my instant analysis.  I will launch this post with everything from over the weekend as well since I haven't given my thoughts on those at this point.  Be sure to keep checking this page as I will be constantly updating it.  Any questions can be asked in the comments section and I'll get to them as soon as I get a chance.  Here we go!
