C and W- Henrik Sedin ($4,300) and Daniel Sedin ($6,100) – Even though they definitely share a toothbrush the twins are still a nightmare to defend against and Henrik is a solid value pick at center. Daniel is a bit more pricey but they both play the entire two minutes of the power play and LA has looked garbage in the first two games of the year.
C – Steven Stamkos ($7,400) – Not much to say. You need a stud on your team and stammertime got his 500th point Monday in Boston and he’s 25 years old. Decent start to his career I suppose. I took 3 members of the dangerous TB PP unit, but it all goes through Stamkos.
W – Ondrej Palat ($4,800) – I never got the chance to play against this kid but he’s a beast. A young Patrice Bergeron. Good value for a skilled guy who hangs around the net on the Stamkos PP unit.
W – Mats Zuccarello ($4,800) – Rangers are rolling and the Norwegian looks great after a fractured skull in last years playoffs. Yes… A fractured skull. Sounds like a real easy injury to bounce back from. Might have been a different story last year in the eastern conference finals if he was healthy.
FYI Incredible imitation of Zuc by former NHLer Patrick Thoresen. Laugh out loud funny how accurate it is
D – Anton Stralman ($3,700) – Was feeding one-timers to Stamkos on PP in Boston. That’s why you see him here. Surprised its not Hedman but probably just a Righty/Lefty thing.
D – Keith Yandle ($5,100) – KY3 has started hot with 3 apples in 3 games. He’s one of the top 5 offensive defensemen in hockey and picks up so many points with crisp breakout passes and getting pucks through from the point.
G – Pekka Rinne ($8,200) – He’s huge, good, Finnish, and playing the offensive juggernaut New Jersey Devils —what else could you ask for in a goalie? Unreal name too. Hi I’m Pekka.
UTIlL – Derek Stepan ($5,400) – Great two-way forward who seems to always end up on the score sheet. Again, I’m loving the Rangers so banking on them getting a win. If they do, Stepan will more than likely have a lot to do with it
