Start and Sit on the Wing
Teravainen has been making some quite, consistent noise among these losses. If anyone is going to step up and fill in for this tough goals that Niederreiter usually makes, it will be Teravainen.
They both play on the same line so they have to feed off of each other. But if Niederreiter keeps just blasting the goal like he has been expect Teravainen to get the clean up goals. Teravainen is a very smart and also physical player. He will use this skill set to make plays and to turn some mistakes made by others into opportunities for the Canes.
Expect Teravainen to take care of the nitty gritty goals the Canes need tonight and get you at least 5 fantasy points.
Nino Niederreiter has gotten back on the struggle bus. He will get off this bus eventually but for now, there is no telling when.
Niederreiter seems to still be caught up in being “the guy.” Which is OK to an extent, we want him to play well. At a certain point he has to understand that this hockey club has a lot of impact players and everyone has a job. While yes the combined job is to win, everyone needs to forecheck and make smart passes. Shots on goal are great, but smart shots on goal are what we need.
As stated before, Niederreiter will come around, it’s only a matter of time. But for now, you probably want to sit him and look at another forward option to be an impact player for goals tonight.
