Ah hockey season is almost here. The best part of the year 🙂 . After all the trade drama and off season acquisitions, its time to get PUCKS TO NET BABY!
I will be posting everyday to share my ideas and help you learn more about hockey and grow as a Daily Fantasy player.
Opening night of hockey will start with 4 games. Stanley Cup reigning champs vs Boston will make for a great game. Going into the season, Bostons top line is still the best in the NHL. They will be priced high all season and if you want to win tournaments you will need to fade them. I don’t expect them to have a huge night on Wednesday, so they are an easy fade for me. I expect that top line to be 25% owned in GPPs. The next highest owned line will likely be the much hyped Tavares, Marner, Hyman line. They will need time to gel and develop chemistry to I suggest fading them as well.
The most interesting game for me is the Flames @ Canucks. Both teams improved in the offseason (losing the Sedins was actually beneficial) and neither team has good goaltending. They are a later game (10pm) so expect lower ownage as well. Stacking both top lines is very doable 🙂
Remember to have fun and good luck!
