Slate Summary

  • We have a massive 13 game slate with a lot of great value. Definitely a lot of ways you can attack this main slate and to start it off, Thomas Chabot for min price is a lock for me. He has already played a game after missing a good month due to a broken hand. In his return, he played 20 mins posting 3.2 fps. If they are willing to throw him in right away with that much ice time, I will gladly play him again for 3.5k. I am going to play 4 players from the Wild today and the 2 must plays are Fiala and Eriksson Ek. They both play on the top power play unit which gives you a positive correlation and a good way to stack, even in cash games. My last core play is Conor Garland for 4.9k. He has really picked it up near the end of the season who has recently been promoted to play on L1 as well as the top PP unit. The Canucks have a less than 1% chance of making the playoffs so they pretty much have to win every game that’s left. The last player I will mention that isn’t a core play but definitely someone that I am considering playing is Auston Matthews. He has 58 goals with 2 games left in the season. I am sure he will try a little harder to hit that 60 mark.


  • Thomas Chabot (OTT) (D) – $3,500
  • Kevin Fiala (MIN) (W) – $7,500
  • Conor Garland (VAN) (W) – $4,900
