Slate Summary

  • As for now, I have only 1 core play which is Connor McDavid. I always update my core plays throughout the day and will put my final players closer to lock. McDavid for 8.7k is just too cheap for a player who provides a safe floor but also a slate breaking ceiling. He has hit double digit fps in 4 out of 5 matchups against the Kings and in an elimination game, I am confident he shows up and has a monster night. There are a lot of good value plays like Saad and Schenn from the Blues that aren’t needed in cash games but definitely a route to be different. For both sites, I am still deciding who I want in net but for now, I have Mike Smith. Hopefully that post game interview by McDavid will wake up the 40 year old netminder.
