    Flyers are getting good chances but looks like King Henrik is on his game tonight.

    Is there something wrong with NHL.com tonight or is it just me? Now showing current updates or who is on the ice.

  • goldengoat29

    I’m not in any forum league contest tonight so could you guys offer me some advice. Torn between these two not-yet-locked pairs for my H2H & 50/50s:

    Ryan Kesler ($6800)
    Sven Baertschi ($4800)

    OR

    Johnny Gaudreau ($7300)
    Troy Stetcher ($4300)

    I want a piece of the Canucks top PP unit against arguably the most vulnerable team shorthanded.

    The first one. Backlund line has been doing most of the scoring recently for the flames and Kesler’s line is on fire right now.

    yeah it’s broken

  • scsa1998

    Holy Lundqvist on Schenn

  • kirby34

    Backlund or Horvat on FD?

  • Markley

    mantha or frolik

    Thanks. I’m also debating Giordano or Backlund. I am using Dougie. So those two top defensemen or Dougie and Backlund will be my Flames exposure. Which doesn’t feel like enough. I have Elliot in net.

    mantha or frolik

    Hard to say. Goes without saying, Frolik is in the better spot but I’ve come to believe current form takes precedence over matchup and Mantha is on fire. Not to suggest Frolik hasn’t looked good lately.

    If you need to catch up, the upside is probably a little higher with the first pair. However, a goose egg is definitely in Baertschi’s range.

    If you’re looking good with your early skaters, the second pair has a higher floor while only sacrificing a small amount of the upside. Johnny Hockey is in a golden spot tonight.

    Yeah I am currently winning both my H2Hs and in a 50/50. For this reason, I was thinking of playing it conservatively with the 2nd pair. I could also use Edler (or Eriksson) over Stetcher but like I said I want some PP1 exposure. I fear I go with stack 1 — which is enticing but my opposition is all over Johnny Hockey and he bridges the gap. Speaking of goose eggs, Johnny Hockey laid one in a very good spot last time out but I’m willing to forget it. I love Kesler’s spot too. Mrazek has been awful and the Red Wings are not a good road team. Getzlaf is out so Kesler is the only top center in town. I don’t foresee anything short of the defenseman minutes he has been logging.

  • TheRyanFlaherty

    Trocheck or Backlund was the decision I was really wrestling with in FD…Looking like I made the wrong call..oh well…

  • goldengoat29

    The 50/50, I am on the money line:

    The H2Hs I have a pretty good lead.

    if it’s any consolation, coming into tonight, I saw Trocheck as more of a must-have.

  • Heterodox

    When were FLA’s lines updated? I made lineups based on what I saw last night, which I then had to fix this morning when they were different, and I can’t recall if I checked again when I finalized lineups before lock, or if I just took for granted that I knew them.

    Two things that I’m pretty sure have never worked out for me in NHL DFS: 1) Using Luongo 2) Using PHI1

  • tristanwolf

    Come on Flames, how bout a 5 spot tonight?

  • weaponX

    P Byron get injured tonight? I see he only has 6 mins TOI.

    They’ve been shuffling them a lot with Barkov out of action the only given seems to be Jagr with Trocheck

    whatchya rooting for?

  • garbage9922

    • 2016 DraftKings FHWC Finalist

    Primarily Horvat/Baertschi, secondarily Kesler/Silfverberg. And also ideally no shutouts from any goalie.

    If the status quo holds, I’ll do well.

  • goldengoat29

    The very guy I am rooting against: Sven Baertschi — so I may be spared the regret.

    Well there’s three pending shutouts at the moment.
