    So do they use Lindholm as like “closer”, not doing nothing til the final period or something? A half point would be nice to add to my score

    That makes sense. Plus, I’ve become used to watching points pile up quickly playing NBA. This is just…different.

    It’s a lot more fun in larger slates. These smaller slates are pretty awful. Add to that nobody scoring and it’s double the pain.

    Omg in 28th place on Yahoo single entry. Sorry for the sarcasm, but just need some action.

    Man, if we received points for shot attempts without actually getting it in, I would roster Camelo’s ass every night

    I was like “why is nothing happening” then I realized it’s probably half time.

    Guess i am going to shut up now. I am sure the NHL guys are tired of us. I mean i did cash last night in my 2 quarter lineups, so i am trying.

    Going to be so pissed at myself when Bjudstad scores. Only ran 1 lu. Lindholm and Dubinsky have done jack squat

    …or hits. Buddy Hield would have got 2 pts instead of an ejection the other night :^ /

  • lloydjv1

    I can say though im close to cashing in most lineups. Not complaining. The silly Nba game is on now. Good luck all.

    LOL hope you rostered Hield tonight.

    Is it weird to think that if I want points out of my goalie, I actually have to hope that his defense fails him and allow the other team to take a bunch of shots at him? When he stops them all, I’ll get points.

    A good defensive team will force its opponent to take poor quality shots. The best case is that the opponent gets frustrated, and just starts flinging pucks at the net as soon as they cross the blue line, or takes desperation shots hoping to create a rebound or a deflection. Even the best goalies usually won’t hold up if his opponent keeps getting quality chances.

    Well….no, but I’ve got several equally as lame picks unfortunately.

  • dragon1952

    Wait…..I think my score just moved :^ O

  • lloydjv1

    Whats amazes me is how one shot or save in NHL makes such a big difference in your scores.

    Best NHL advice i have seen all week. I will remember that.

  • Darkman33

    hoe long is the break between periods? Seems like forever

    Been thinking about that post since I saw it. Only have Dubinsky and Jones in that game, somewhat because of that post. Should’ve gone for Serg Bob too. He was Rotowire’s favorite goalie tonight and i wish I looked at their optimizer before I rode the chalk with Ward. Carolina is last in penalties and Avs are on a b2b. Seemed to good to be true

    Skinner potting that goal could spell death for me. At 30 and one of the only goals scored I’m far behind largely because of that. Also Atkinson with 4 dkp is looking like a really good pick. Still wishing I played Skinner over Huberdeau but I’m hoping he has something to say about that later!

  • Darkman33

    Hey, last night I saw one team pulled the goalie… Gave up a goal then pulled him again.. Why would they do that? Trying to understand the sport a little more
