Slate Summary

  • The NHL 2022 Playoffs are officially starting with 4 games for the main slate. For cash games, Mike Smith is a lock for me as he faces off the surprising LA Kings who have made the playoffs this year since 2018. He is the most expensive goalie but has the best odds to secure the W at 65%. I will take this and find value else where. My next core play is Kevin Fiala for 7.2k. I am prioritizing EDM and MIN in both cash and gpp contests. With my last core play of the slate, I have the best player in Connor McDavid. This is a big year for him and has to perform every night to advance in the late rounds if he wants to take the next leap in his career. For value, Raanta can be another option in net to save you $400 from Mike Smith. Another player that is popping for me is Zach Hyman who not only plays on L2 with Leon but also plays on the top power play unit with McDavid to give you positive correlation.


  • Mike Smith (EDM) (G) – $8,400
  • Connor McDavid (EDM) (C) – $9,900
  • Kevin Fiala (MIN) (W) – $7,200


  • Antti Raanta (CAR) (G) – $8,000
  • Zach Hyman (EDM) (W) – $5,800
