The pickings are getting slim
on the waiver wire heading into week 3.
Still, there is some value to be found:
Kyle Okposo (NYI)
Okposo took a long time getting
there, but he has finally emerged as the go-to guy on Tavares' Right Wing. That
has translated nicely into 3 goals and 5 assists, over the last 6 games. His ice time has likewise steadily climbed to
a season high of 23 minutes in his last contest.
David Clarkson (TOR)
Clarkson has nearly finished
his 10 game sentence and is poised to make his Maple Leaf debut later this
week. For leagues that value a mix of
points and PIMs, take a look at adding Clarkson to your lineup before other GMs
Jay Bouwmeester (STL)
I personally drafted
Bouwmeester late in most of my drafts with the expectation that he would pick
up where he left off late last season with the Blues. He has managed to contribute 5 assists in the
first 7 games, while clocking some serious ice time for St. Louis. The last few years have been hard on him
fantasy wise, but he has started to reemerge as a serious fantasy option on
Ryan Murphy (CAR)
Rookie defensemen are tough to
trust, but circumstances have given Murphy the opportunity to take the wheel in
Carolina. He has supplied a steady
stream of fantasy value so far in the season.
Ben Bishop (TB)
There's a good chance that
Bishop has already been claimed in your league, but it's worth a look. He has clearly surpassed Lindback as the
goalie of choice in Tampa. Despite a
rough go in his last game against Boston, his streak to start the season is the
best display of goaltending the Lightning have witnessed in recent years.
