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:
Razzball favorite Oliver Bjorkstrand had his second 3+ point game of the young season on Thursday, dishing three assists and adding two shots in the 3-2 OT win over the Islanders.  That's seven points in four games and the equally encouraging sign is that Bjorkstrand played over 20 minutes in this game.  He's owned in almost every league like he should be, but the upside may be even higher than I gave Bjorkstrand credit for.  I have no doubt that the goals are going to come, but the playmaking has improved leaps and bounds over the last season plus.  I don't think he can quite get to being a top 50 player in a best case scenario, but top 75 is attainable.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the last two nights:
There was plenty of craziness on Thursday night, but the Detroit-Tampa game takes the cake.  The Red Wings took the lead 6-3 in the third on the back of four, count them four, Tyler Bertuzzi goals, only to blow the game and lose in overtime 7-6.  Bertuzzi looks to be a solid streamer, but it's going to take a lot more to hold him.  He's been inconsistent in the past, and he's unvaccinated.  That means he won't be able to play any games in Canada.  The Red Wings already have a one off in Montreal next Saturday and another game in Toronto the week after.  It's simply too hard to hold a player that's missing games for something other than an injury.  Let's take a look at what else happened on the ice on Thursday night:
Connor Hellebuyck hasn't been as good as in the past, but he's capable of stealing playoff series for the Jets.  He'll probably have to do that this year, especially if Ehlers isn't back.  He had a peak performance on Wednesday with a 32 save shutout in the 4-0 win over the Flames.  Even with Hellebuyck being below expectation, he's still been a bottom end #1 goalie.  That's why we take him as a top 5 goalie: safety.  As I have preached for years, goalies are voodoo, but Hellebuyck is one of the only exceptions.  Here's what else happened the last two nights:
Nino Niederreiter's first season in Carolina couldn't have gone any better with 14+16 in 36 games.  Last season really couldn't have gone worse with 11+18 in 67 games.  Well, this year has certainly been closer to 2018-19 and we can be thankful for that in fantasy.  Niederreiter scored two goals and an assist with three shots on Friday before dishing an assist on Saturday, adding six shots.  That brings Nino to 9+3 in 16 games with over three shots per game, 13 PIM, and a great +11 rating.  The second line in Carolina has been incredible, sparked by Niederreiter and Trocheck's revival.  He's an easy hold in all formats for the time being.  I wish that the minutes were a bit higher, but considering what Nino is doing with what he's getting, there can be some growth with additional minutes, namely in the assist department.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the weekend:
Toronto being up 5-1 on Ottawa with a minute to go in the second period wasn't exactly surprising.  The final result?  Well, I hope you didn't turn the game off.  The Senators, arguably the worst team in the league, stormed back to win 6-5 in OT.  Evgenii Dadonov tied the game with 2 minutes left before scoring the overtime winner.  That gives Dadonov five goals in his last five games after a sluggish start in Ottawa.  Is it going to be as good as it was in Florida?  Certainly not.  However, Dadonov is starting to build value again to the point where he's a solid streamer.  I wouldn't be surprised to see the minutes go up even higher to the point where he's an elite streamer.  Let's take a look at what else happened on Monday:
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!
It's hard to believe that Filip Forsberg recently had a 20 game goalless streak.  He had his best game in months on Tuesday scoring two goals and an assist with five shots and two PIM.  The thing that excites me most is that Forsberg played 20 minutes in this game.  Forsberg is clearly the best forward on the team and it has been infuriating that his minutes have been down, slump or not.  The playoff schedule for the Predators is excellent (you can read up on that here) giving Forsberg the opportunity to be a top 20 player down the stretch.  I don't expect that, but he has that kind of upside.  The Predators are making their playoff push and it's the time for Forsberg to get his season back on track.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the last two nights:
