Sam Gagner (EDM)
Gagner is riding a
big two game point streak. In case you
missed it, last night's game featured 4 goals and 4 assists from the Oiler
center. Gagner was a first round (6th
overall) pick in 2007, who has since been overshadowed by all the other young
studs in Edmonton. Perhaps this is a
sign that he's ready to be part of that conversation as well.
Martin St. Louis (TB)
St. Louis continues
to be red hot, riding an eight game point streak. During that span, he's racked up 13
points. He and Stamkos are back to
dominating the opposition, while the rest of the Lightning roster lags behind.
Mikhail Grabovski (TOR)
together a couple of monsters games before and after the All Star break. He has 3 goals and 6 assists over the last
Dany Heatley (MIN)
He's a shadow of his
former self, but the former sniper has woken up in the past two weeks. He has points in four straight, including 3
goals and 4 assists.
Logan Couture (SJ)
Yes, he was left
alone on the stage during All-Star pickup hour, but that hasn't slowed up down
in the real world. He has a five game
point streak running, including 4 goals and 4 assists.
Marc-Andre Fleury (G-PIT)
If Fleury's in net,
there's a darn good chance that the Pens are winning. Despite being unjustly left off of the
All-Star roster (Price???), he has put together wins in 8 straight games.
Pekka Rinne (G-NAS)
Not to be outdone by
Fleury, Rinne has pieced together wins in 9 straight games. Over that stretch, his GAA is an amazing
1.56, including 1 shutout.
Milan Michalek (OTT)
registered an assist in his last game, after going four straight without a
point. He has just 2 points in the last
8 games and is a -5 over that span.
Henrik Zetterberg (DET)
Is the offense dead
in Zetterberg's game? Another three
games without a point. More telling: He
has just 1 goal in the last 21 games, putting him on pace for a lousy 14 this
season. Perhaps it's time to label him a
defensive forward, as a opposed to a 2-way threat.
Thomas Vanek (BUF)
Buffalo's last game with an upper body injury.
At least he now has an excuse for not scoring. 7 games played and counting without a point
Johan Franzen (DET)
Mr. Streaky is back
at it. Three games without a point, and
just 1 in his last five. All that means
is that he's probably due for a 5 goal game.
Corey Crawford (G-CHI)
victimized for 5 goals in the Sam Gagner show on Thursday. He's dropped four straight games, averaging
4+ GAA in that time. The door is open
for Emery if he can step it up.
- Jason Blake (ANA) - lower
body injury. Does this mean the
rally in Anaheim is over?
- Nathan Horton (BOS) -
concussion - day to day
- Adam Henrique (NJ) - groin
- Marc-Andre Bergeron (D-TB) -
upper body, day to day
- Ryan Malone (TB) - upper body
- Danny Briere (PHI) - close to
Value Picks of the Week
Here are some guys
currently undervalued on Fanduel that you should cash in on in the short term:
Mike Fisher (NAS) - $6,100 - 2.8 FPPG
Fisher is the man in
Nashville right now as far as goal scoring is concerned. He has 6 goals in the last 6 games and is
priced at just $6,100.
Ryan Whitney (D-EDM) - $4,500
Whitney has been
hammered by injuries over the past few years (ok, his entire career), so
expectations are low right now. So is
his salary. He found the scoresheet
twice in the Gagner show, giving him 3 points in 3 games since returning from
his ankle injury.
Thomas Greiss (G-SJ) - $6,100
He doesn't get a ton
of action playing behind Niemi, but when he gets the chance, he delivers at a
value. Greiss is 3-0-1 in 2012 with a
1.22 GAA. Few goalies linger around 6k on
Fanduel, so grab him when you can.
Andrew Shaw (CHI) - $4,600 - 2.9 FPPG
The rookie has seen
a ton of playing time on the top lines in Chicago. Occasionally, he's even popped in some
points. Can't beat that price right now.
Joe Thornton (SJ) - $6,700 - 3.2 FPPG
Thornton is quietly
creeping back to a point-a-game level for the season. He's even started to see some entries in the
goal column. He has 7 points in the last
Taylor Hall (EDM) - $6,400 - 3.6 FPPG
Hall just can't get
any respect from the salary setters at Fanduel, despite being on pace for 30
goals in his sophomore season. He has 3
goals and 4 assists over the last three games.
