    Wow it’s a serious home team madness. Contests are insanely horrible as always, but this time, I’ll play the $11 anyway. I’ll just limit my number of lineups. Structure is laughable.

    Yep, get in before it fills.

    Didn’t realize these contest can fill and you can get 🔒‘ed out.

    Found out the hard way with golf yesterday 😭

    Finished my iron man, so I’ve lost most of my motivation to play NHL DFS for the rest of the season unless they really juice up some prize pools for the playoffs.

    I’ll still play a small amount each night just to have something to pay attention to, but my nights of playing high volume are over for this season

    We’re live now! I was off by just a bit.

    Weird thing is I’ve only got more than $3 back on NBA so far. Jury still out on PGA

    Haven’t played NHL in a while, but I got in on the risk free contest. Thinking about keeping it simple with Matthews and McDavid, and filling in the rest with whatever fits.

    Also like Thornton at the minimum back on the Leafs top line.

    I like the Caps but the Rangers just got screwed!!! 250K fine for calling out the disaster that is “NHL Player Safety”?!!! Really… how about you do something about the actions not the criticism aftermath. What a joke!!!

    Bettman is a clown. At least he was finally smart enough to get a deal back with ESPN and also Turner.

  • yisman

    Hate myself. Missed the NHL risk-free today after missing the NBA risk-free on Monday.

    As for Wilson, he should’ve been banned from the league years ago. The NHL has enabled him his entire career. He gets to do what he likes and he either gets a small punishment or nothing.

    Parros should be fired and Wilson should be sent to Siberia.

    they make them small so they always fill quickly

    each one of them has filled WAY before lock, and usually within 2-3 hours of being posted

    this NHL one filled in like an hour.

    I don’t go that far but understand the sentiment. Obviously the dude hasn’t learned. Team wouldn’t keep him if he didn’t score though.

    Absolutely and I hear in Siberia they don’t handle this the same way lol But I sure wouldn’t want the “Player Safety” role!

    It’s at least the 20th time in his career he’s been involved in dirty play and attempt to injure. That’s not an exaggeration.

    If the league cared at all about player safety, they would’ve done escalating suspensions for Wilson upon each offense and then told him he’s out of ****ing strikes. Next one and you’re gone.

    Kind of get the feeling that’s where he’s at now. Or at the very least longer than 20 games (maybe a year?).

    Also can’t stand the guys defending this type of behavior in the media with the ol’ “it’s a scrum thing”. I don’t think most did for the punch but for the body slamming of Panarin some didn’t care about, which I personally thought was a lot worse. Gonna be an even more heated Metro next year!!!

    NYI1 is the ultimate revenge line!

    And yes, I’m also getting tired of Tom Wilson. It’s the same thing every season.

  • Mccurds13

    The Wilson saga is ridiculous. The NHL keeps promoting that circus act that was last night’s game over the skill of guys like Panarin and then wonder why there game doesn’t grow. Best sport, but the worst league.

    And I’m with you Felix, love NYI1 tonight to get up to the studs.

    agree with all of the Wilson comments but have to disagree on the league comment. NBA is the WORST league and it’s not even close. At least with the NHL, you don’t have to worry about players actually wanting to play nor all of the extraneous BS that goes on which has absolutely nothing to do with basketball.

    Lots of options tonight.

    I would agree with this.

    With the NBA, the league/association apparently encourages the teams to lie on the injury reports, because the teams keep doing it.

    And yes, in the NBA the players sit all the time even when they’re perfectly healthy and well. Infuriating to fans.

    I do agree with this side of it. But the NHL just seems so stuck in the past all the time. Refusing to open up the game to more of the speed and skill which is what sells. Just maddening.

    Fair enough. No disagreement there.

    I don’t understand why both my optimizers are all over the Sabres tonight.

  • zovyn

    Ultimate waffle lineup… McD/Pulju, AM34/Thornton, Pasta/Lauzon, Rust/Dumoulin – I should probably have committed to a full stack somewhere. Koskinen/Smith in net.

    GL everybody!
