- To start my build, I will be locking in Kopitar for $5,500 on DraftKings. The Kings captain lead his team last season with 67 points and will look to continue his production this season. It helps that they traded for Kevin Fiala who will bring the scoring and playmaking which was desperately needed. Both play on the top line as well as the top power play unit.
- Speaking of Fiala, the newly acquired Swiss will look to impress his new teammates. He scored a career high 85 points with 33 of them being goals. For 6k, it’s really hard not to play Fiala today in cash games.
- Sticking with the same team, Arvidsson at $5,600 is a solid mid tier option when you are trying to look for value. He provides a safe floor but the only downside is that he is projected to play L2/PP2. It would be the perfect line stack if he were to be moved up before the game or even during.
- Igor is the best value in net as he is affordable in the small 2 game slate. The reigning Vezina Trophy winner will look to battle it out against Vasilevskiy who are the top 2 goalies in the league. NHL did a great job with the 2 match ups and both games will be exciting to watch.
