Jack Hughes being out for the rest of the season due to an MCL strain is a big bummer, but we will take the moment to appreciate his breakout season and we wish him a speedy recovery so we can take him next year. This season is going to have five or six 100 point seasons and the number of highlight reels grows nightly. It is truly a special time to be a fan and we hope you are enjoying this along with us.

Here’s a Nashville hot lineup For DFS Hockey 4/7/22 (using DraftKings Values)

WingF. Forsberg$7,200
DefenseR. Josi$8,900
GoalieJ. Saros$8,300

Romi Josi may pull out a 100 point season. Are you kidding us?! That is an insane pace and this team would be nowhere near where they are without him. It will come down to the last game, but we are rooting for him. Ottawa is a great place to score goals so load up on the Preds today.

Juuse Saros is the exception to that last rule. He and Josi should split MVP for the team. Saros is having an incredible season and is a special talent at keeping pucks out of the net.Only one other goalie in the league has played as many games as him. He is a true workhorse, which is a dying breed.

Filip Forsberg, like everyone we are grabbing these days, is very close to a significant milestone. Forty goals in a season is no joke and he needs two more to get there. He has 70 points in 56 games, putting him in the top twenty of average point scorers. We already mentioned who is facing today and we like those odds.

Ryan Strome is a more consistent presence on the ice and the scoresheet than he gets credit for. There is always this desire from the fanbase to get a point per game, which is a great goal, but it’s not everyone’s role. Furthermore, the hate that he gets for only getting .75/game is silly. His cost is too low. Throw Scott Laughton on the too cheap pile. He may look like a dud, but he just came back from concussion and will see his ice time continue to climb as he becomes more comfortable.  He is one of the best players on the team right now and with Elvis Merzlikins being named starter for the remainder of the season, look for Philly to take a ton of shots.

While he is not as super cheap as we would like Sean Durzi is finally making an appearance on our list. For $4,700 you get a guy who is playing 25 minutes a night and blocked 9 shots against the Flames last week! That was a divisional game with the top of the mountain on the line. The Edmonton Oilers are climbing that mountain and Durzi will be putting his foot down and body on the line to stop them. Save another grand and take Calvin de Haan. If you want to talk about putting the body on the line, this guy does it with aplomb. 

More sub $4,000 players? Yeah, we got those. Evan Rodrigues made the most of his time centering the second line in Evgeni Malkin’s absence and has still managed to produce on the third line. Part of it is the sneaky second power play unit time he is getting and the other part is his sheer tenacity. Yegor Sharangovich is still scoring goals and no one seems to care. 

Go treat yourself to a Bo Horvat or Roope Hintz for your main course center. Sit back, relax, sip some wine and enjoy the evening. May we suggest the Pittsburgh Penguins vs New York Rangers matchup as your matinee?

The Wild smoked the Roadrunners last night but it was still a blast seeing the boys live. We’ll be back there in a few weeks for the end of the season. Thirsty for Twitter (@FantasyDFSX)? We are thirsty for that and for Thursday! See you tomorrow.
