Waiver Wire Watch - Week 1

by chewy 7. October 2013 13:40

Just about a week into the 2013-14 season, and we already have a fired coach.  With NHL GM's quick and desperate to make a move, you ought to be just as alert in the early going in managing your fantasy squad.  Typically, a handful of top notch fantasy options get swept up in the first few weeks of the season to early waiver watchers.  With a few games played, here are some early waiver options to consider adding to your lineup, if someone else hasn't snatched them up already.

 

OFFENSE

 

Lars Eller (MON)

Through the first two games, Eller tallied 3 goals and 5 points, earning #2 Star honors.  He won't keep this pace up all year, but he may provide decent value on the year.  It's about time the Habs got some return on the deal that sent Halak away to the Blues.

 

Mikail Grabovski (WAS)

Grobovski started the season in fine fashion, tallying a hat trick in Game 1.  He put up an assist in the game 2 and has now has 5 points in 3 games.  Given a helping of solid playing time with Ovechkin could mean a career year for the castoff Leaf.

 

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (EDM)

The young Oiler center wasn't expected to start the season until November, but made a surprise early recovery.  He's expected to play this week, so snag him, and hope he's what Edmonton needs to get the offense on track.

 

 

DEFENSE

 

Jason Garrison (VAN)

Garrison has displayed streaks of fantasy gold in the past, but has never been a go-to guy over the long haul.    He has 2 goals and 2 assists through 3 games for Vanouver.

 

Matt Niskanen (PIT)

It's uknown how long Letang will be out, but as long as he is, Niskanen will carry some value as a depth defenseman.  He's filling that gap on the potent Penguins as a key puck carrier on the back end.  He registered 3 assists through the first two games.

 

 

GOALIE

 

Jaroslav Halak (STL)

I have been touting Halak as the solution for the Blues all pre-season, so it's not surprising to see him off to a hot start.  What is surprising is that he's still available in many leagues (just not any of mine, as I drafted him…).  Get him now.
