Slate Summary

  • Game 6 for 8 teams all with a 3-2 series going into tonight. The Oilers are in trouble while arguably having the top 2 players in the league. However, they still manage to find themselves in a must win situation in the first round. Zach Hyman for 5.1k projects well as he plays on L2 with Leon and PP1 with McDavid. He is a solid player and will get plenty of chances tonight playing around 20 minutes. My next core play is his captain who has all the weight on his shoulders. McDavid has gone past the first round only once in his career so a monster game is needed from the superstar to force game 7. Finally, Sergachev is my last core play at 4k. The former 9th overall pick continues to rack up minutes going over 20+ in 4 out of 5 matchups against the Maple Leafs. With his cheap price tag and other value plays like Barrie or even Mike Smith, it will be viable to go stars and scrubs on this slate.


  • Connor McDavid (EDM) (C) – $10,100
  • Zach Hyman (EDM) (W) – $5,100
  • Mikhail Sergachev (TB) (D) – $4,000
