NHL Grind Down: Thursday, March 14th


The RotoGrinders NHL Grind Down article will give you an in-depth analysis into the NHL schedule. This article will break down the numbers for every single game and give you analysis on which trends you can exploit. While matchups are a major factor in daily fantasy hockey there are plenty of other factors to consider such as injuries, salaries, and more.

The analysis should point you in the right direction, but it is still up to you to decipher the information and make your own selections. Hockey is an extremely high variance sport. The best choice is not always the right choice but following the trends will win you money over time.

Team Summaries

Sabres

This matchup between Pittsburgh and Buffalo features two teams with different mindsets. The Sabres, despite an early 10 game winning streak, have fallen out of the playoff hunt and are in rebuild mode. Jack Eichel is out and their options are extremely unappealing from a real life perspective. From a DFS perspective, it’s not much better, but Evan Rodrigues has been playing major minutes and shooting the puck at high rates. Him and Rasmus Dahlin, who is seeing ample ice time with the season lost, make for decent cash plays, but you could do better on a slate this big.
