    I just never know what Minny player to pick. They are all so streaky. But that game will likely have the most goals
    Dub and Andersen are leaky taps. I also remember Eric Staal being a leaf killer. Is this true?

    We could say it is. 47 points in 43 games in career. That being said, he had success against many teams in his career.

    Hi Guys. I’m looking to Staal and Ennis (cheapie) if he is on MIN1 and then I can afford the entire TB1, because as well as Martin Jones has been playing I am looking to the Bolt to electrocute the Shark Tank lol!

  • StPaulMick

    Re: Minny, Matt Dumba (3.3 DK) is on the outskis with Bruce Boudreau right now and I feel like it’s a make or break time for him right now with the club. He and Staal are projecting to be on PP2 so you can get a nice little two-man packet there.

    If Vlasic remains out, it’s a possibility, but I still like our defense to hold it tight.

    Is Matty playing tonight for the Leafs?

    I’m loving NYR L1 tonight. And everybody here talking about MIN but here I am wanting to play Andersen lol For some reason I just keep thinking nobody on MIN can score but much to my dismay they do.

    My guess is yes. The other night when he was a GTD he was merely “sore”, so maybe he’s had a few rubdowns in the interim lol.

    Marchand still out as well.

    Auston Matthews will not play tonight. Upper body.

  • Poochy16

    Any reason you guys are leaning MIN1 over MIN2? I was more looking to target the Koivu line

  • sizzlebeans

    I’ve never used the Line-up HQ tool on here before. It seems to hate the Rangers tonight, lol. I locked Pavelski and Hank and it only gives a few McDonagh LUs and 1 with Kreider.

  • benrocket

    How does Burns have 56 shots and no goals?

    Don’t use it much and haven’t for hockey but that’s a bit weird. I like them a lot tonight. I think that’s going to be my game to target. I like the Rangers side better but will have some BOS guys as well.

    Right? I think it has to do with his youthful partner. He’s playing more timidly this year probably because he doesn’t have responsible Paul Martin helping him out.

    Him and Pavelski are locks for goals tonight. Pavs going for 300…Burnzie going for 1.

    “But that game will likely have the most goals”… after last night’s PIT/ARI, EDM/NYI and MON/VGK all supposed to be high scoring and all ending in relative stinkers, I“m a little spooked.

    Then you have the BOS question. They can be so lethal at times, but then every time you load up on their big boys, it ends up being the Frank Vatrano show. Therefore, I’m going Frankie V with my contrarian lineup tonight.

    Make it the Flying V’s show with some Jimmy Vesey action as he returns to collegiate glory days in Bean Town!

    Edit: game’s at MSG. My bad.

    A Pastrnak – Bergeron – Vatrano line would be lethal. The guy has an average of 1 goal per game (!!) in the AHL for the past two seasons!

    Anyone know which line SJ will put up against TB1?

    see post below…

  • sizzlebeans

    Look like Vlasic is back. Expect to see Vlasic and Braun on the ice when TB1 is. They usually skate with the Couture line, so maybe we put that forward group on TB1.

    EDIT: this article makes it seem even more likely it’ll be the Couture line vs TB1

    http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/11/08/searching-for-offense-sharks-instead-find-a-shutdown-line/

    “DeBoer doesn’t go out of his way to chase line matchups, as he expects whatever line he puts out there to at least hold their own against an opponent.

    Still, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Couture’s line skate against Tampa Bay’s top line more often than not Wednesday night.”
