Boston 1– What more needs to be said at this point? Best line in hockey and its not close. In theory the matchup here is tough with the Dylan Larkin line most likely shadowing Boston 1, but right now it doesn’t matter. These guys are in a zone. Jake DeBrusk is out and Charlie Coyle is currently penciled in on the top PP unit. Confirm that is still the case before lock. If so, he is a tremendous value. Top play- David Pastrnak- 13 points in 7 road games.
Edmonton PP1- A little deja vu here as we highlighted both of these lines on the last small slate. Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid are essentially unstoppable at home. McJesus has a whopping 17 points at home in 8 games and amazingly, Leon also has 17 points in 8 home games. We will once again need to monitor final lines here as Sam Gagner was the wing for the top line last game. If that is once again the case, you can go right back o him as an elite value. Top play- Connor McDavid- 17 points in 8 home games.
Winnipeg PP Values- With Bryan Little headed to the IR after a nasty injury, Winnipeg has had to shuffle the lines a bit. The result? Some decent value. Jack Roslovic is now skating on the 2nd line wih Nikolaj Ehlers and Blake Wheeler while also receiving power play time on the 2nd unit. Mathieu Perrault is also still viable as he is once again on the top PP unit and has also moved up to the 3rd line from the 4th. Top Value- Jack Roslovic- 1 point in 8 home games.
Winnipeg has shuffled their PP units up a bit! They have gone with a more balanced look, putting some of their top end talent on both units. I would expect both units get a fairly even split of PP time tonight to start and then they lean more on the unit that looks better. Huge boost to Andrew Copp.
This is a pretty tough slate with not a lot of hot mid range skaters. The move here seems to be to load up with as many studs as you can while utilizing the few punt value plays on the board. Good luck!
