Greetings everyone. We have a great 6 game slate tonight. Let’s take an early look and see if anything stands out. The ‘First Look’ will use the lines listed on Daily Face Off early on in the day. These will change, so keep an eye out for another article closer to lock which will include updated lines.
We can start off looking at the recent corsi events that each team have been generating and allowing. This will start to give a general idea for the teams in a good spot for puck possession (CF vs CA). The team corsi data is pulled from Natural Stat Trick and it has the last 15 days for this chart. It is showing that WAS against NSH has the highest combined CF and CA (opponent) on the slate.
Now we will take a look at the forwards that are priced lower but in a decent situation to pay off their salary. Specifically these are players that are currently listed on Line1 or Line2 AND PP1 or PP2 along with a salary of $3400 or less on Draft Kings.
There are some good value plays with lower salary players are on the top two lines even they aren’t on a power play unit. These players are priced at $3200 or less and are on either Line 1 or Line 2 but no Power Play.
There are 3 players that meet the criteria for this list of value plays on defense. They each have a salary of $3400 or less and are on a top two defensive pairing and a power play unit.
