NHLHS Endorsed Pickups

12/08/2009
Boston Bruins v Phoenix Coyotes

Any player written about is under 50 percent owned in Yahoo! leagues.

Here are today’s picks:

RW: Chris Stewart, Colorado Avalanche – Over the past week we have discussed Stewart at length.  A player this young usually would be on our Keeper Watch, but his stats over the last week are simply too good to not play in all formats.  Playing regularly on their top PP and with Paul Stastny will keep him this hot or at least relevant.

Prognosis: I’ve said enough, get this guy on your team.

C: Stephen Weiss, Florida Panthers – An NHLHS star of the week, Weiss has been incredibly hot over the last few weeks.  In the previous seasons we have seen spurts of production similar to this so it is not a surprise.  Also in previous seasons we have seen his production drop off the map completely.  Still with a healthy Nathan Horton and David Booth expected back around Christmas things look good for the 26-year-old.

Prognosis: If you need a depth center, stream Weiss until he fizzles.

Daily Fantasy 3 Stars 12/07/2009

12/08/2009
Blue Jackets vs. Avalanche

In this section, I break down the top three fantasy hockey performers every night and cite why I chose them in particular. In addition, I will track the amount of times the players have received this honor and tally them at the end of the season. For the sake of clarity, I will be using Yahoo! standard categories (Forwards – G,A,+/-, PP, PIM, SOG; Goalies – W, GAA, SV%, SHO) and thus exclude player’s salaries.

Last night was a great night for hockey with 18 teams in action.

THIRD STAR: Matt Stajan, Toronto Maple Leafs (0-0-1) – This may come as a bit of a shock, but Stajan has 13 points in his last 13 games.  Playing primarily with Phil Kessel and last night’s hero Alexei Ponikarovsky the soon to be 26-year-old seems poised to break last year’s career high of 55 points.  The Mississaua, Ontario native scored a goal and an assist in his teams 5-2 victory over Atlanta last night.  An overall solid effort, he also gave his owners two penalty minutes, three shots on goal and a nice plus two rating.  If you need a depth C, you could do a lot worse than this Leafs pivot.

SECOND STAR: Alexander Semin, Washington Capitals (0-1-0) – If this guy can stay on his skates he will win you a fantasy championship.  There is no doubt in my mind he will be a consensus first rounder next year.  Including last night’s game Semin now has 8 points in his last 3 games! Last night he assisted on two goals, one of which was a powerplay tally, and took a whopping seven shots on goal.  In addition, the 25-year-old sat two minutes in the box while maintaining a perfect plus one for the evening.
