    I would rather have Carlson than Backstrom. Backstrom rarely shoots. And if he gets anything it’ll usually be assists. Carlson will shoot and play 6 more minutes than backstrom

    Would have been a beneficial switch! Might be hanging my night on Smith now at low ownership. Kyrou didn’t help tonight.

    gibby going to get the shutout

  • Blahaaron

    Don’t ask me what the hell I was thinking when I put Rask in my BOS1 and CGY2 lineup. I would easily be cashing if I went with Gibson instead. Sometimes you can get away with doing that if there is enough shots. Maybe BOS can still win it. Also need isles to score one goal.

    ari @ chi tomorrow seems like a goldmine

    goal against in classic and showdown is the same….shouldn’t be shy to take goalie and the opposing team player(s) i guess

      RG Overall Ranking

    After 2 bad down days (yesterday with a lot of PIT and one outlier that made it in the top 30
    In the $20 before McJesus went crazy and VGK line 1 got hot)….
    I scaled down and played a single in the $33 and of course it posts a 42.80… how would have I placed in the $150?

  • fantasybender

    Decent 52.8 in the $33 for my all anh lineup with 1100 salary leftover. Only on a short slate…

    You would have finished T17 in the 150

    Had Kesler in half my 8 showdown lineups and Cizikas in only one. If I had used them in the same lineup, that would’ve been a big score!

    Cizikas was 1.1% owned and got 14.8 FP.

    Getzlaf was 4.3% owned.

    Thanks.
    Kind of the same %wise

    Wonder why Pionk has disappeared from the starting lineup page. Was looking for him but couldn’t find him and just played Mete and Ouellet… would have been a nice boost

    I had Cizikas too. Ended up my best score in the showdown at 31st place.

    And I was able to win a microbooster but tied a person and another person who entered the same 7 lineups so only won 3.75 there

    he was healthy scratched two days in a row IIRC

    might have something to do with it

    Not bad.

    Will be interesting to see the huge cuts DK will make to showdown of the week after this one had only like 2,000 entries out of 3,000 needed.

  • yisman

    My big disappointment was Elias Lindholm. Had him for Tiers and the late slate.

    Played over 18 minutes and 4 minutes on the PP and got 0 FP despite his team putting up 5 goals

    Not to brag or anything BUT I finished at +$1264 (I put $810)! I was tilted because the main slate wasn’t going well, so I entered two lineups (that was the maximum) in the $33 late contest. I finished 1st and 2nd! I also entered them in the $8 contest (the maximum was 22 lineups but I only entered two) and I finished 1st and 4th!

    Fun fact: those two lineups would have been my best two if I had entered them in the $33 main slate contest. I would have finished 8th and 19th.

    Thanks, you too! What’s funny is that I checked to see if he also made the ANH full stack and he did.

    Great to see you take down some late slates on tilt. I may have to dabble in some of that action

    Damn congrats! You’re off to a blazing start this year. Keep it rolling and become the new Testosterone (just don’t play all available contests lol).

    I only played a single bullet but missed the cash line by 0.5. Damn you Kevin Miller and Kyrou! Also salty with myself I didn’t include Carlson in my WSH onslaught. On to tonight. Congrats other winners.

    @fantasybender: late slates are fun, but the contests are smaller, so some days it’s not worth it in my opinion

    @hautalak: Yes I am! I will never play close to the volume Testo plays, but I like seeing my name near the top more often than not! It probably won’t last, but it’s nice while it does! I had a fair amount of K. Miller too. Giordano also had a rare dud night, especially considering that his team scored 5 goals. Also, Tkachuk’s empty net goal cost me about $700 because I had duos (in the late slate) and he was the one I left out.

    Yeah that’d be a feat to play as much as him and everywhere (all platforms) too! I think you’ll be atop more than you think.

    I need to get a little better at finding the value D with how top heavy scoring has been.

  • Blahaaron

    Congrats! But I feel like you could own the late slates. They are smaller and it’s easier to cover all your bases on a two game slate. Plus I don’t think many of the top players mess with the smaller slates.
