    Yup got to love the hometown announcers. Some are homers and others are big time homers.

    Haha, I like to go back and watch this every now and then, this is after the B’s beat the Habs in OT in Game 7, the year they went on their Cup run. Apologies to any Canadians/Brits on here, all in good fun!

    Colorado went from -254 to -213 after the news broke.

    This is my first time playing NHL tonight and I’m doing the showdown in 30 minutes, anyone have strong advice for a double up without giving out your secrets? My initial thought is a goalie at captain, thanks

    Don’t play Kane or Tuch or Karlsson as Captains and you will be way ahead of the game!

    I see what you’re doing. Reverse psychology. No seriously they look like good double up plays thank you

    Goalies are almost always optimal. You almost always need one, but rarely need two. If you’re playing a double up, it might be a good idea to play a lot of Ds as they have good peripherals. You can also play volume shooters such as Pacioretty or Evander Kane.

    It’s confirmed on twitter too.

    Huge edge in SD for those who are in contests that are full already. Of course Dansk could get crushed, but Fleury will probably end up at 20%+, which is an edge in itself.

    VGK-SJ with Dansk and Jones in net might be a rare exception though. It could get ugly with a lot of goals!

    They are great plays – but not when I play them.. 2 or all 3 of them will bust. You should actually play the opposing Goalie!
    You play them at your own risk now.

    I hate nights like tonight. I took a stand playing Berg-March without Pasta, which turns out to be the correct move, and then I have Raanta messing everything up with -9.10.

  • NextSignal

    OK, guess I’m rolling with 30% Dansk. Hope it turns out better than the inevitable piles of dead Fleury lineups.

    We’ll see. Right now I am misgruntled. My Colorado and Vegas lineup stacks have been messed with. And Vasilevskiy has given up 3 goals to Chicago in the third.

    Thanks for the advice, I got Hague,Tuch in my doubles and like no one besides me has them so I know I did something wrong with Marchessault at captain lmao but thank you

    I hope he gets lit up. A big negative number will go nicely with all the snowflakes I am causing.

    SD is highly volatile anyway. It’s very hard to do well constantly with only one lineup.

    I would have played a lot of Holden since he ended up playing on top pair with Pietrangelo today. I assume he was minimum price.

    Another tilt. I had Carter-Athanasiou but moved off when I replaced MacKinnon by Kadri.

    You shouldn’t take jayzee too seriously. This is his shtick…everyone he picks ends up with a snowflake ❄️.

    yes, minimum price

    he was a healthy scratch a few games ago

    I need Anaheim to somehow beat Colorado…

    You actually should take me seriously. If I list my plays in all sports I play and people actually didn’t play them, Ppl would have a lot less busts in their LUs. I unfortunately kid you not.
    I have 2 goals over the span of all the games played tonight and I didn’t play obscure players. This is a good night for me.

  • cplatt87

    Figures that the night i put 0 thought into my lineup it smashes. DFS is weird!

    Hopefully my Schtick helped you avoid the busts.
    This is what I am good at.

  • yisman

    nightmarish night

    needed either Ducks or Sharks to win and both lose in OT. Very costly.

  • ifthethunder

    Max Pacioretty saved my ticket. 133 points was 958 / 17,647, in spite of ❄️ Oscar Dansk.

    (Also known as $20 back for a $10 ticket, but I’ve done worse.)
