There is a game between two juggernauts today. The Colorado Avalanche are facing the Boston Bruins and it will be a huge test for each team. Our expert advice is that the Bruins so far this season have taken care of business against weaker teams but have definitely struggled against the cream of the crop. They have better than a snowball’s chance in hell but will likely come up short.
Here’s a snowy lineup For DFS Hockey 1/26/22 (using DraftKings Values)
Success starts in net and Pavel Francouz is getting the job done. He is only letting in two goals a game which is fine when you have the firepower the Avs do in front of him. We do not think he fully steals the starting job from Kuemper but it is a conversation that the coaches are probably having.
Nazem Kadri got the call that he is now an All Star. He was voted in after the initial round and frankly he deserves it. He is not our favorite player ever but his skill is evident.
Gabriel Landeskog is the Captain of this team which we forget about sometimes. It might seem like Nathan MacKinnon would be the one with the C on his chest but Landy is a fantastic leader and brings it every night.

For your top D man pick save a bit on Makar and go after Seth Jones or Charlie McAvoy. Jones costs a bit more but is more likely to get you an assist or two. McAvoy on the other hand tends to step up big in these games and put his body on the line.
Ryan Getzlaf will see his numbers in the rafters in Anaheim in a few years time. We thought he was done after last year but he has proved us wrong and is leading a resurgent Ducks group. He just got himself a goal and assist last game and will be pushing to take more points from Eastern teams on this cross country road trip.
Get one more Duck in today. Troy Terry is also going to be an All Star and has earned the heck out of it. He is a league leader in goals and there is no reason to think that the young man will be slowing down anytime soon.
We are trying to decide between Moritz Seider and Rasmus Andersson for our second blue liner. Andersson gets top marks for blocked shots this season and that gives you a very nice floor to work with. Seider costs a bit more and does not have the same peripherals but he has been having a stellar rookie season and he has a lot more wow factor.
For a smorgasbord of wingers to fill up the rest of your roster we found a nice little package of Taylor Hall, Tyler Bertuzzi, and Alex Debrincat. Apologies to Bertuzzi who our old fart brains called Todd the last time we took him. Todd Bertuzzi was an NHL player a long time ago and is in fact Tyler’s uncle, but is not in the league anymore.
