    The chalk is going to be stacking 4 Vegas guys again, just have to choose them properly. Although, I guess some will start Lehner allowing them to only roster 3 on FD. So i guess that’s an option for an edge- take a chance on a goalie besides Lehner. Last time Vancouver and the Knights played Markstrom was like 30% owned, I don’t get it especially on FD where the win is so important unless you can manage an extra 15 saves and not allow a stupid amount of more goals compared to the other guy. I feel like Varlamov is going to be the most common pivot, he’s my early lean, Hart will be the best contrarian play IMO that has a good shot at a win. So I guess the best edge, as far as my 8 am brain can think after working a night shift, is to fade Lehner to have 4 Vegas skaters and then choose whoever you think will win the early game. Taking a look at the prices I’m surprised Hart is so cheap, the inept Flyers offense is probably the reason for that. As far as Flyers skaters go, I will likely need value plays to make the Vegas guns fit. Konecny’s price continues to drop as does Hayes. JVR is another guy who presents solid value. And to meet the requirements of 3 different teams of FD, I would consider Edler, Virtanen, Pearson and Gaudette as they all have solid value. Petterson is interesting as well!

    Saw a stat yesterday that Giroux has just 1 goal in his last 25 playoff games, and just 8 points over that stretch. No wonder I keep losing when I pick Flyers…

    Lindblom expected out, but he’d be a nice GPP play if he’s in.

  • bfogarty4

  • bfogarty4

    Seriously!? Bad streaks happen in hockey, but that it is something else!

  • Iceman10000

    Wow only 1 page of hockey talk! Dog days of the season I guess? Who is Sharp Play going to be tonight?

  • zovyn

    I’m expecting Tuch to get one tonight – love the way that kid plays.

  • zovyn

    Also, there’s only one page of MLB chat tonight too… that is unusual. Lots of people focused on schools starting up everywhere I imagine.

    Yea. Everyone might be gearing up for next season. Not many options in a 2 game slate :/

    Demko is in net for Canucks tonight so that should be interesting……..

    It was announced early though so I don’t expect any edge there. It just makes me want to play VGK even more.

    In every VGK win, Edler was in the perfect SD lineup. Stone, Pacio, Tuch, Schmidt and Lehner were all in 2/3.

    Giroux goal!

    All the offense coming from the PHI/NYI game, like we all called it, hahaha!

  • yisman

    wow

    15:36 Goal scored by Brock Boeser assisted by J.T. Miller and Quinn Hughes 1 1
    15:12 J.T. Miller won faceoff in neutral zone
    15:12 Goal scored by Shea Theodore assisted by Reilly Smith and Mark Stone 0 1
    15:07 Giveaway by Thatcher Demko in defensive zone

  • Southie777

    Haha, crazy! That Theodore goal was SICK!

  • yisman

    Game 5: Kucherov plays 9 minutes before departing. Lightning win in OT without him.

    Game 5: Couturier injured in the second period. Flyers win in OT without him.

  • Southie777

    Weird night, but still so up in the air. I’m certainly not winning anything big tonight. But half a period left and I could still easily end up with 0/10 lineups cashing or 6/10 min. cashing/a bit better than min. cashing. Such is life with a two-game slate, I suppose!

  • goldengoat29

    That Horvat empty netter crossed the line before the horn. I watched it in Slo-mo. Sucks they won’t bother to get it right for the degenerate gamblers out there.

  • Southie777

    Kind of crazy to not go to the tape on that empty-netter, even though it didn’t affect the outcome at all. If you’re going to have legalized gambling, DFS, etc., you kind of need to actually tie up loose strings like that and make sure you officially get it right. It doesn’t affect me really, I had a couple of Horvat lineups and didn’t even see who would’ve gotten assists, and I won my money back and wouldn’t have done much better either way, but I would be going nuts right now, if I could have shot up the standings in a big GPP. Maybe the ref really got it right live, but that definitely seemed like a good goal from watching on TV. The NFL irritates me with a lot of things, but I will give them credit that they always finish things out to the end, too much money on the line!

    Haha, yep, glad someone else gets my rant!

  • Southie777

    Wow and, judging from Twitter, plenty of people were affected. Yikes!

  • yisman

    Yeah I watched the replay of the third and I was amazed they didn’t give it another look

  • Canuckage

    Apparently the TV broadcast clock isn’t official. Someone posted a clip and it doesn’t look like it made it in the net on time.
