Slate Summary

  • Can’t get any better than these two games, especially the battle of Alberta which will be must see TV.
  • I am still confused as to why Raanta is the cheapest goalie at 7.5k. Feels like Igor and Raanta should have swapped prices. The Canes are going into tonight with a 60% expected win rate and should be the more dominate team to secure the win. This is an easy play at goalie and I don’t plan on playing anyone else in cash games. You can definitely go a different route by stacking NYR and playing one of the goalies in Alberta.
  • Tyler Toffoli was one of the best acquisitions for the Flames this season as he provides a scoring punch as a top 9 forward. His price is slowly creeping up and I just wish he was projected to play as a top 6 forward. That being said, he should still play on their top power play unit which is a huge boost and grades out as the best mid-tier option.


  • Antti Raanta (CAR) (G) – $7,500
  • Tyler Toffoli (CGY) (W) – $5,400


  • Antti Raanta (CAR) (G) – $7,500
