We're half way
through the NHL campaign already. With
most of the hockey world caught up in debating the snubs for Team Canada, this
is your chance to snatch up a gem or two off the waiver wire while their backs
are turned. Here are a handful for your
Max Pacioretty (MON)
Pacioretty got off
to a very slow start on the season; however, recently, the goals have been
coming in bunches. He has 7 points in
his last 4 games.
Brayden Schenn (PHI)
4 years into his NHL
career, the 5th overall draft pick is just now starting to show some offensive
flash. He scored in 4 of Philly's last 5
games, despite 3rd line minutes.
Mark Scheifele (WIN)
starting to emerge into a powerful offensive weapon for Winnepeg in his
sophomore season. He has tallied 18
points in the last 20 games.
Chris Stewart (STL)
Nobody is an
inconsistent as Stewart over the past several years. After a horrid start, Stewart went on rampage
in December, but fell cold over the past two weeks. He has
been dropped in many leagues. He scored
again last night, so he may be on the verge of another roll.
Alexander Barkov (FLA)
Barkov is making his
case for rookie of the year. Since
mid-December, he has averaged more than a point a game, but goes largely
unnoticed, toiling in the hockey misery of Miami.
Nathan MacKinnon (COL)
The one man who is
likely to ruin Barkov's claim to the Calder Trophy this season is coming on
strong as well. 6 goals in the last five
game, include back to back 2-goal efforts have him disappearing from waiver wires
Jussi Jokinen (PIT)
Malkin is back, and
thus, so is Jokinen. Three straight
multi-point performances since Malkin's return.
