Slate Summary

  • Last nights games were fun to watch but I just can’t wait to see another game of the Battle of Alberta. The Flames look very confident, especially at home where they are now the bigger favorites on this slate. I am looking to grab as many players from this game and most likely play Raanta from the Canes with 0 exposure to the Rangers in cash games and very little in GPP.
  • To start off my build, I am locking in Tyler Toffoli. He only registered a point in 9 goals his team scored which is surprising but Toffoli has a chance to produce a ton this series. He is a skilled forward who brings upside and a safe floor. Playing on the top power play unit, he is the perfect mid-tier option on a 2 game slate like today.
  • My next core play is McDavid who I will also be locking in. In his last 3 games, he has averaged slightly over 25 minutes and the Oilers captain has really done as much as he can on his part. It’s clear that he is the best player every time he steps on the ice but if he wants any shot of beating the Flames, he will have to be even more, which is crazy to imagine. At the form he’s in, he should be priced a lot higher so this is an easy play.
