    86 last night, a few points off of the cash line with a -2 whatever from my goalie. 2nd night in a row picking a bad or nonexistent goal tender so going back to kuemper tonight and hoping he’s not getting tired. 4th game in 6 days seems like a pretty hefty workload especially with all the shots aimed at him

    Made one lineup for that game. Beauvillier’s my captain, and I got Nelson too. Then it’s four Panthers :(

    Damn! Well we never know. There’s still a period left. My strategy for SD is normally:

    Goalie captain – full correlated line – correlated D – one-off from the other team. Then I make one with each guy from the full correlated line as captain. So that’s 4 lineups for every line you take. If you really like a line, you can enter it a few times with a different D and/or one-off.

    Full correlated line – full correlated line, with each guy captain. That’s 6 lineups for every line combo. If there’s an obvious weak player, I can switch him for a D.

    Also, when I don’t want to enter too many lineups, I just keep my lineups that have the best captains.

    I don’t feel great about it but I“m rolling Jarry in net.

    It didn’t show up as much in the last game but I like EDM a lot less in general when they are the road team because of line changes. McDavid and Draisaitl are good enough that it’s hard to shut them down completely but I like the CHI side of this game more. Obviously the last game doesn’t reflect what I just said and it wouldn’t be at all shocking to see EDM score 5+ goals but I’m siding with the home team here.

    If you’re going to play EDM, I’d go with the Draisaitl line. If AA moves up he’s really cheap too.

    Thanks. I put together a lineup with both McDavid and Draisaitl, and a lineup with just the latter. LET THEM FIGHT.

    I stacked up EDM/CHI for the FD main slate.

    DK main slate had a little overlay but I decided to skip.

  • mr_papageorgio

    Ok Kuemper, you aren’t this good. Start letting some goals in.

    A full correlated line is like W-C-W of the same line? If so how can you fit all of these plus a D guy and a one off into $50K. I tried PIT as an example and had 1.1K left for a one off. Maybe it doesn’t work with the pricier teams?

    hautalak and I will see you in Habville when the Canes come up for the Cup!

    Indeed, for more expensive lines, it doesn’t always work. Your D needs to be cheaper, so let’s take the PIT-MTL game for example:

    Jarry captain – Crosby-Guentzel-Sheary – cheap D – cheap Habs one-off
    Crosby captain – Jarry – Guentzel-Sheary – cheap D – cheap Habs one-off
    Guentzel captain – Jarry – Crosby-Sheary – Schultz (or cheap D) – minimum price Habs one-off (or decent priced Habs one-off)
    Sheary captain lineup is not necessary, but if you make it, you can plug in better D and one-off

    The second strategy won’t work for PIT1-MTL1 with Crosby captain, but you could fade Sheary and take a cheap D instead to make it work.

    Okay I used a more expensive PIT D (Schultz) and that’s why I only had 1.1K left. I just couldn’t ignore his recent periphs.
    Thank you Felix and great luck this afternoon/evening!

    Thanks! I actually found the new PIT lines in time, but didn’t have time to post them here as I was tweaking my 14 lineups. I hope no one else noticed. Top 3 are:

    Guentzel-Crosby-Rust
    Zucker-Malkin-Hornqvist
    Marleau-McCann-Sheary

    MTL has new lines too. Top 3:

    Tatar-Suzuki-Gallagher
    Drouin-Kotkaniemi-Armia
    Lehkonen-Danault-Byron

    Belzile is making his NHL debut on MTL4.

  • Felixxberg

    Good luck to you too panters. I hope you do better than Panthers!

  • mr_papageorgio

    Josi out there just racking up shots and blocks like he usually does now that I didn’t play him.

  • OttawaCityMadman

    nice. Osterle was my main D punt today with Keumper. Now if my Top guys can get er done

  • Felixxberg

    I really need Kuemper to hit the bonus! Also, a full ARI1 goal would be fine!

    I punted with Hjalmarsson so I’m thrilled with 5 blocks. Now need some Sid/Jake scoring.

  • OttawaCityMadman

    Apparently they get to be on every TV channel while I don’t get to watch the Penguins. I’m so pissed right now.

    I know the feeling. Ive missed Wings games because they had to show some other crappy game. Least I dot have to worry about that this year lol

    I think there’s a decent chance this game duds for DFS purposes,

    I truly hope everyone took my advice and faded this snoozefest even though I’m too stupid to listen to myself.

  • CheetosAddict

    Josi finish the game with 14 shots wow

    they should have a 2nd bonus for 10+ shots! It is a fairly rare occurrence…
