Start and Sit the Blue Liners
START: These goofball Blue Liners.
You have the face of the Canes defense in one line with Jaccob Slavin and Dougie Hamilton. Yes they were a bit shaky the other night but let’s keep the faith. These are our boys, and they will bounce back.
Both of these guys already have 11 points or more each on the season, and the Canes have only played 16 games. Hamilton actually has 17 points this season, averaging over 1 point per game. That is at least 2 fantasy points a game!
The boys will get back in stride tonight lighting up the scoreboard, fantasy, and our hearts.
These two will get you at least 6 fantasy points tonight.
SIT: The whole third line
Whomever pays down here tonight; Haydn Fleury, Trevor van Riemsdyk, or Joel Edmundson. This line is full of defensive skill, but again, we need offense in terms of fantasy. Edmunson is one of the best lock down D-men and great at forechecking. But this line has not been offensively productive. They will hurt your fantasy team.
To be stated again, this line is a great line defensively. They just haven’t been putting the puck in the goal. Now if they do should we complain? Absolutely not. But we are talking about guys that will get you 2, 3, 5 fantasy points tonight and these guys will not. They will protect Mrazek till they are blue in the face but they have not been able to get rolling offensively.
