The Eastern Conference playoffs are going to be a bloodbath, In particular, the Atlantic Division is unbelievably stacked. Within the last few days, the Toronto Maple Leafs have fallen from 2nd place into a wild card spot, while the Boston Bruins have taken over that spot. The Tampa Bay Lightning were briefly in that wild card position, but with a win yesterday they moved past Toronto and have regained third. It does not even matter which of them is in fourth place, as any of them could be second in every other division. For all the legends of the past, the competitiveness of this league as a whole is unparalleled and is still only getting better.

Here’s a Broadway lineup For DFS Hockey 3/27/22 (using DraftKings Values)

CenterM. Zibanejad$6,400
WingC. Kreider$6,700
GoalieI. Shesterkin$8,400

Mika Zibanejad finds a way to factor into what feels like every single point the Rangers are scoring. He is everywhere on the ice and his motor never stops. We are actually surprised that he is only just over a point per game given his production. Everytime we look at their scoresheet he is there. His pairing with our next guy can find holes in any defense.

Chris Kreider is ahead of Alex Ovechkin and in striking distance of Auston Matthews in goals scored. We knew he was piling them on but that is prolific. One of the most impressive parts is that he is a wizard on the tip in. Just get in front of the net and slightly deflect someone else’s shot and BAM! Goal. They don’t ask how, they ask how many.

Igor Shesterkin is one of the best goalies in the league. Yes, he has had a bit of a rough stretch, but he is one of the main reasons the Rangers are where they are in the standings and he deserves a little leniency. It is time to tune things up and get ready for the gauntlet. If he is not ready, the team will not even sniff the second round.f

Are we talking about attractiveness or skill on the ice? The answer is yes. Jack Hughes is good and looks good doing it. Another multi game effort is under his belt and he is not slowing down anytime soon. We are not advising to swap out Zibanejad here, stack these two together for maximum impact. We need to go binge some highlights of these two afterwards, they are exactly who you want leading the team on and off the ice.

We will have to go a little bit cheaper on wingers today to make up what we are paying our centers but that is fine because we know where all the diamonds are buried. One more Ranger should be taken and it could be either Frank Vatrano or Andrew Copp. The most recent additions have already scored at least one goal each and are in much better spots than they were on their previous squads. They are energized and ready to help this team to the promised land. 

If you do take Vatrano that will help your bottom line the most and all he does is score goals. Speaking of scoring goals, Cole “Goal” Caufield is on an absolute heater right now. We have said it before and we will say it again, the man behind the bench coaching him is the perfect inspiration for someone who needs a step stool to get to the top shelf in the cupboard. His average fantasy points reflect the garbage way he was being deployed by the former headmaster and are not an indication of future success.

One word of warning is that Adam Fox is showing signs of playing injured. That would be terrible for both the team and hockey fandom as a whole. If he needs some time off, he deserves it so they can make the final push. Instead of him we are going for Mackenzie Weegar or Devon Toews. The last couple picks help our budget but we still need to be thrifty here. The Panthers are playing a vulnerable Leafs team and Weegar is the number one with Ekblad out. Toews continues his dominance even if it is not Cale Makar dominance.

Our secondary defenseman is going to have to have a super high floor to build our confidence so look towards Damon Severson or Ben Chiarot. Severson is on a three game point streak and the last two were goals. He is heating up fast on a team that knows they are not going to the playoffs but are happy to spoil others dreams. Chiarot is saddled up next to Weegar and he is ready for the big time.

The utility position is in no way a throw away pick. It should still be focused and have an impact. We took Joel Eriksson Ek yesterday and he rewarded us with an assist and a few shots. Note that his time on ice has gone up three minutes a game since last week. The coaching staff has a renewed confidence in him and so do we. We also just really like Shayne Gostisbehere and are glad he has found his way in Arizona.

March is already almost over? Where did it go!? We are looking forward to some April showers to kickoff some wildflower growth and to make the cactus near us bloom. Are you following us on Twitter (@FantasyDFSX)? Have a great Sunday and we will see you tomorrow.
