Fantasy – Rosters locked and loaded, prepare for battle
Fantasy rosters should be set and everyone should be feeling good about their team. If you are not, don’t sweat it, there will be some injuries, breakouts and some fizzles. It happens every year and in every position possible.
Quick got injured game one of last season, that was a real game changer for myself and anyone else who had him in their fantasy pools. Sometimes it can be a blessing in disguise losing a player to injury so that you can toss them on the IR or IR+ slot and pickup someone who is red hot and ride them out.
In some cases you will end up keeping that player and dump someone else when your injured player returns, and in other cases you flip flop that player and ride hot players until your player is healthy. It’s not all that bad of a scenario, you just have to be on the ball and go with your gut (or mine).
I’m here to help, so if you have fantasy questions feel free to ask in the comments section or private message me if you don’t want others to see your inquiries.
This is the third year I will be covering fantasy hockey on Hockeybuzz and there has been a lot of positive feedback over the years and I plan to keep it that way.
I love fantasy hockey, I’m in five pools and each is different than another so I have a firm grasp on who’s worth what, who’s trending up and down and I will give you my two cents on any trade thoughts you want to discuss (very common someone will inquire about a trade).
Each week I hope to start off the Monday with a weekly outlook. Which teams play how many games, injuries, hot players I would scoop for the week if you are looking to slot in a player or players and of course the starting goalies.
Enjoy the ride, here we go!
Toronto (Andersen) vs Winnipeg (Mason)
St. Louis (Allen) vs Pittsburgh (Murray)
Calgary (Smith) vs Edmonton (Talbot)
Philadelphia (Elliott) vs San Jose (Jones)
(italics is probable, bold is confirmed)
Good luck, be sure to sign up for the HBSL if you haven't yet!
