Don’t be shy, if you have any questions about trades or thoughts about who to drop and who to pick up feel free to ask in the comments section.

There are four teams who still have four games remaining this week:
Pittsburgh, Carolina, Calgary and Anaheim.

So if you are looking for a free agent to add why not a player from one of these teams.

Players trending up:
Mikhail Sergachev
Dustin Brown
Jason Pominville
Derick Brassard
Derek Dorsett
Chris Stewart
Vladislav Namestnikov
Jake Muzzin
Morgan Rielly
John Moore
Sean Couturier
Zach Hyman

Goalies that are trending up due to injuries:
Anton Khudobin
Keith Kinkaid
James Reimer

It looks as if both Leon Draisaitl and Mikael Granlund will be returning to their lineups tonight.

I’m a big fan of buying low on a player or if someone dropped a player because they are not playing well. Scoop them up, quite often players will get off to slow starts and you can be the one to capitalize.

Right now I’m a big fan of Brandon Montour as he’s pegged to play on Anaheim’s top power play.

A few depth players to keep an eye on:
Yanni Gourde (second line + secondary PP) [points]
Anders Bjork (first line + secondary PP) [points]
Sonny Milano (fourth/third line) [5 goals 8 games]
Nick Ritchie (second line + secondary PP) [hits + PIM]

Starting Goalies:

Detroit (Howard) vs Buffalo (Lehner)
Tampa Bay (Vasilevskiy) vs Carolina (Darling)
Arizona (Dominigue) vs New York Islanders (Halak)
Anaheim (Gibson) vs Philadelphia (Elliott)
Edmonton (Talbot) vs Pittsburgh (Murray)
Florida (Reimer) vs Montreal (Price)
Los Angeles (Quick) vs Ottawa (Condon)
Calgary (Smith) vs Nashville (Rinne)
Vancouver (Nilsson) vs Minnesota (Dubnyk)
Dallas (Bishop) vs Colorado (Varlamov)
Chicago (Crawford) vs Vegas (Dansk)

*will update goalies

Have a great night of hockey.
