Waiver Wire Watch - Week 2

by chewy 14. October 2013 09:12

We're now just about 2 weeks into the season, and already, we've seen some significant surprises pop up on the waiver front.  Here are a few guys to jump on before their swiped up in your league:

 

OFFENSE

 

Alexander Steen (STL)

Steen often kicks off the season on fire, and it's come to pass once again.  He has scored a goal in each of the first four games and has totaled four assists in those games as well.

 

Jussi Jokinen (PIT)

With James Neal out, Jokinen has slid into the sweet spot with Malkin.  The results netted him a hat trick against Carolina.  He has done nothing but score goals since joining the Pens late last season.

 

Michael Grabner (NYI)

The speedy Grabner has gotten off to a quick start with the Isles, registering 2 goals and 5 assists through the first four games of the season.  He has gone on similar hot streaks in the past, so ride him now and drop him later.

 

Tomas Hertl (SJ)

You've probably missed the boat on this rookie, given all the attentional that swell fourth goal garnered him.  If he's still available in your league, snap him up now.

 

 

DEFENSE

 

Jonas Brodin (MIN)

Brodin should have been drafted in your league, but probably wasn't.  He put together a strong rookie season last year and is looking even better in season 2.  He should be a solid fantasy contributor all year.

 

Brent Burns (SJ)

If you're playing on Yahoo, or some other site that can't seem to fathom that Burns is no longer a defenseman, take him now.  You can slot him in on defense and take advantage of a decent forward's production.  Even as a winger, he's worthy of consideration.

 

Hampus Lindholm (ANA)

Keep an eye on this rookie over the next several weeks.  He's seeing plenty of ice time for the Ducks and is starting to produce.

 

GOALIE

 

Josh Harding (MIN)

With Backstrom on the shelf (again), Harding once more finds himself with the starting job in Minnesota.  He performed admirably in the same situation during the playoffs.  Backstrom isn't expected to be out long, but either way, Harding should get his fair share of starts going forward and is worth stashing.
