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:
The player with the most points this weekend was Connor.  No, not McDavid.  Kyle Connor continued his terrific season with two amazing games.  First, he scored a goal and dished three assists against the Senators.  Then, he followed it up on Sunday by scoring two goals and an assist with five shots in the win against the Blackhawks.  That brings Connor up to a point per game on the season, 26+30 in 56 games.  Connor is developing into one of the unheralded stars in the league.  Overshadowed by Scheifele and Laine on his own team, this will be Connor's third straight 30 goal season at age 23.  His shot rate is over three per game now and the penalty minutes have jumped quite a bit.  I'm not sure how much higher his ceiling is, if at all, but it doesn't have to get higher.  Connor has established himself as a player whose floor is 30+30 with plenty of upside from there.  He's going to be a top 50 player (conservatively) for a long time, mixing in seasons where he's a top 25 player overall when he has some good fortune.  The Jets are in terrific shape going forward offensively, now they have to do whatever they can to improve their blue line.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the weekend:
Last season, Leon Draisaitl had a massive breakout with 50+55.  It seemed naive to expect better, but he's going to blow 105 points out of the water.  Draisaitl scored two goals on six shots on Friday before dishing four assists with three shots on Saturday.  That brings him to 29+54 in 52 games.  That's over an assist per game!  Sure, the penalty minutes have dried up and he's -7, but who cares!?  He has four points more than his teammate for the most in the NHL and is now over three shots per game.  It's not a lock that the Oilers make the playoffs, but they're a clear favorite to make it now, mostly on the backs of Draisaitl and McDavid.  Even with the poor plus-minus and PIM, Leon is still the fourth best skater for the season.  At this point, his floor is a top ten forward which puts him in a class of the world's truly elite.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the weekend:
I was expecting a big bounce back from Nazem Kadri this season in Colorado after being stuck on the third line in Toronto last season.  It hasn't been spectacular, but Kadri has been a hold all season.  He was going through a rough patch with only one point in seven games before Monday, but he broke out in a big way.  Kadri scored two goals on four shots and added an assist in the Colorado victory over Detroit.  Sure, it's Detroit, but three points is three points.  Kadri has already surpassed last season's goal total in 27 less games and the penalty minutes are through the roof.  His spot on the top power play unit appears locked in, therefore making him a hold for the foreseeable future.  The big offseason trade has been a huge win for the Avalanche, no doubt about it.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the last two nights:
It's safe to say that at 26 years old, Jonathan Huberdeau has plenty of hockey to play in his career.  The scary thing is that he's going to destroy the Panthers point record.  In Sunday's big win over the Maple Leafs, Huberdeau had a goal and an assist to pass Olli Jokinen for the most points in franchise history. After last season's breakout campaign where Huberdeau had 92 points, he's on pace to blow by that this season with 61 points in their first 45 games.  The shot rate has fallen off to slightly below average, but I don't think anyone who drafted Huberdeau is complaining.  He's a safe bet to finish as a top 20 overall player this season, and since he's entering his prime along with some of his other teammates (notably Barkov), the future is incredibly bright.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the weekend:
James Neal opened the season on an absolute tear, a stretch that included a four goal game.  He fell off dramatically over the last two months, but he had another massive game on Tuesday.  Neal had a hat trick and an assist in the 7-5 win over the Rangers.  So should we care?  I mean, the Rangers are a disaster defensively.  And the answer is... yes and no.  What great advice!  It all comes down to your team needs.  Neal has been excellent on the power play and should continue to do so on Edmonton's first unit.  The goals are going to keep coming in.  On the other hand, he's -23 and has only eight assists on the season.  If you're desperate for goals and power play points, or are in a league with extra categories that include PPG, then there's a case to hold Neal.  Otherwise, I would prefer to stream him so he doesn't tank my plus-minus while also giving less assists than any other fantasy relevant player.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the last three nights:
Loyal Razzballers know that I've been a big fan of Juuse Saros for a while.  He's had a tough start to this season, but I still believe in the player long term.  Saros was less than two minutes from a shutout on Tuesday, making 24 saves on 25 shots in the 2-1 win over the Sharks.  His overall numbers are still poor, but the Predators have started to tighten up defensively.  Saros is still only 24 years old and is one of the best long term goaltending prospects.  Saros is starting to see even more action starting five of the last eight games.  There's real upside here so if you need goaltending help, I'd grab him now.  Additionally, I would try to get him in a dynasty league before he boosts his value back up.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the last two nights:
