    anthers skaters will flourish tonight. These Florida players tend to make a safe plays at home rather than a finesse play when “slow ice” or “bad ice” conditions exist. Florida skaters LOVE these games on the road.

    I’d lean more towards the part where FLA is a better team and gets to play against a team that plays super high event/pace hockey… But humidity works too.

    Yeah and humidity??? Like inside the rink or what? I’ve been around hockey and never heard of humidity being a factor.

    Now ice can be a huge factor; I read some disinformation somewhere that all ice is the same in every rink, not true. Not true at all.

    I’ve found usually the more I tweak the worse I get. Happened last night, but that was circumstance of the Getzlaf injury.

    If I’m really feeling some other guys I will make a second lineup. And I’ll completely max out at 3, but usually if I get to 3 everything becomes a cluster F.
    I had a night were I had Souza Jr, McCann & Kiermaier in my lineup and split them all up into 3 separate ones. Well they all hit 2 hr’s and it was a 4 game slate or something. Would have won EVERYTHING

    Never again lol.

    This is preliminary and non-comprehensive but it gets you thinking about it.

    I never thought of humidity as a serious factor that I would consider for every game and player choice. That seems a bit over the top…

    Humididty – yes. Certain arenas seem to have better ice than others. TicketRaven thinks the difference is the hardness of the ice. Rinks in Canada are well known for the quality of their ice. Panthers skaters will flourish tonight. These Florida players tend to make a safe plays at home rather than a finesse play when “slow ice” or “bad ice” conditions exist. Florida skaters LOVE these games on the road.

    Look into which arenas use Jet Ice, if you don’t already. It’s able to withstand higher humidity without breaking down as easily as ice made without any special prep. Not quite sure that this info belongs in a DFS thread, but whatever.

    Guys. Is this a joke?

    You cannot be taking these troll comments seriously.

    It’s harder to keep good ice in places like Florida & Arizona because of outside temperature….it costs more and needs more equipment. Also the ‘ice men’ in Canada are just the best, it’s a religion up there.

    From what I’ve heard, Edmonton is the consensus best ice amongst the players. But SJ has crap ice apparently and it doesn’t stop guys from scoring.

    If you would have just said ice factor instead of humidity people wouldn’t be giving you shit haha, all good man.

    Edmonton was always considered the best ice but they moved into the new arena so I’m not sure what they are saying yet.

    Isles Ice at Barclay has been shit all season and wasn’t good end of last season. Once it gets colder it should be better. Just another reason as to why the building not fit or built for hockey.

    As for tonight, I like Pit1, Fla1, LA1, and like Min1. Trying to fits Burns and Pavelski in where I can.

    Oh yeah I was totally sleeping on the new arena, thanks for the reminder

    For the record I don’t take ice factor into consideration at all….well I guess outdoor games because that is the trap of all traps.

    And the only time I’ve heard of ice truly being really bad at a professional arena is if the crew had to do a real rush job because there was an event there hours earlier.

    The ice at Barclay’s center for the isles is trash because they use PVC piping for the coolant, which isn’t what the rest of the NHL uses. It’s actually in violation of regulations I think.

    That being said, none of this really means shit guys.

    Stop wasting your time.

  • julieduke33

    Couldn’t help but comment…NHL rinks are suppose to be fairly consistent… Barclays center has been so bad this year that NHL network did a piece on it on NHL tonight yesterday… but here’s an article an NHL ice conditions…

    By the way unless I read something on the ice being horrendous I never think about it when constructing LUs… except outdoor games…

    Lol, You beat me to it as I was going to post the same thing.

    Edit: Good thing the predators aren’t playing at home here in Nashville as the humidity is a little high today. And apparently that makes for bad ice and low scoring games.

    The Preds need to worry more about keeping e coli out of their Frosted Flakes than worrying about humidity.

    Having to shit on the ice equates to low scoring as well.

  • goldengoat29

    Is Brent Burns not appearing as an option on DraftKings for you guys? All the other Sharks are there, but not him. Give me a break.

  • goldengoat29

    Oh nevermind he was already in my lineup. Carry on.

  • bleacherbum099

    DK cash better G option Martin Jones or Steve Mason?
