W. W. O. R. D. (What Would Our Ray Do?)

We are in the homestretch as the season starts to wind down.  Hopefully your team is battling for a top spot in your fantasy league or have yourself so far out in front, it’s just a matter of waiting out the days until April. We are introducing a new feature article that will take permanent hold next season as we try and switch things up.  We hope you like it and will gladly listen to your comments and/or suggestions to make PrimePucks™ better.

ADDEM: ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN

Posted by steve on Mon, 2016-02-15 09:57

Threes a charm for this week's fantasy slate as we recommend several note-worthy potential waiver wire additions:

Jori Lehtera

Remember how dominant the STL line has been for St. Louis for long stretches. Well, Schwartz is back and with him and Vladdy being owned in all leagues, take a flier on the third member of this potentially dominating unit.

Good morning everyone and Happy Valentine’s Day! Got my coffee and raring to go!

We are getting into the homestretch and there are some tight playoff races going on already.

Philadelphia needed that 2 points against the Devils.  It will just be harder to make the playoffs now.  Too many better teams ahead of them.

Cory Schneider is having a sensational year.  If only the Devils had some consistent scoring.  The Schneid is carrying this team.

Good morning everyone!  We hope everyone enjoyed the All-Star break and the festivities. Got my cup of joe and ready to go!

The new All-Star format was a hit with the 3-on-3 competition.  The All-Star play-in games showed the typical All-Star offensive talents like in a typical All-Star game while the Finals game was more true to form of a regular season style of play.  Kudos!

The All-Star break hasn’t slowed down Patrick Kane who has points in three straight games since.

BETWEEN THE PIPES: NOW THE TIME IS RIGHT FOR

BTP: NOW THE TIME IS RIGHT FOR……

Steve Mason to take control of the Flyer’s crease with Michal Neuvirth out with injury.  Neuvirth was a godsend early on in the season when Mason couldn’t seem to get his footing down.  Mason has started the last 3 and has gone 2-0-1 with the Flyers power play becoming a force to be reckoned with.  We all know that Mason has the ability to be Vezina-like in net and that is what Philadelphia is hoping for down the stretch so as not to miss the playoffs again.  Look for a stellar second half from the former Rookie of the Year.

ADDEM: FANTASY HOTBED IN COLUMBUS

Brandon Dubinsky
Simply put, the top unit anchored by Dubinsky had been tearing it up for the Columbus squad. The only word of caution regarding Dubie is that usually his torrid scoring streaks come to an abrupt halt due to injuries and he fails to live up to the previous hype. But he can absolutely help all fantasy teams right now...

Good morning!  The Northeastern United States got zonked with 2 feet of snow on Saturday but after the big dig, I’m raring to go with my hot cup of coffee.

We have not seen the like of this Jonathan Drouin situation since the Eric Lindros debacle.  I just hate to see this get ugly when it didn’t have to be.

Ryan Johansen seems to be enjoying life in Nashville so far.

The Penguins have come alive of late and people will start calling this the March of the Penguins soon enough.

Andrew Shaw has been reaping the rewards of lining up with Jonathan Toews and Marion Hossa, picking up five points over the last four games. Chicago is on a crazy roll, winning 10 straight and here is to hoping coach JQ keeps his lines intact. Shaw is only fantasy worthy when playing with stars,...

Good morning hockey lovers!  With a tooth pulled an hour ago, I’m on the ice but without the coffee. 

This is the time of year when players and teams start to put it into a higher gear as they try to reach their stride heading into the playoffs.

There has been a little bit of a Dallas fade lately while Chicago has picked up their game and now have taking over the lead in the Central Division.
