Welcome to Buy-ville

The Nashville Predators, buy a bunch of them. That includes Martin Erat, Patric Hornqvist, Mike Fisher. Since they are Predators they already have the fortune of being under the radar. In fact they may even be on your waiver wire. The case for Patric Hornqivst is the guy takes a massive amount of shots (129 shots this season), they are bound to start going in (14 goals on the season already). Martin Erat should be the hardest to get from the bunch as he's had a fairly steady season collecting 35 points this season in 42 games. While Mike Fisher has had an awesome start to 2012 with 13 points in 12 games in 2012.

Sell Seabrook

If you're in a salary cap league, you don't own Brent Seabrook. If you're like most leagues and have a standard scoring system, you also should not own him. He's a bigger name on D so that's all the reason to try and shop him around for someone who can actually be big on paper. 18 points in 46 games is hardly impressive for a guy who plays nearly 24 minutes a game for the Chicago Blackhawks. He's got 3 points in 4 games, that may be as good as it gets.

Don't be singin' the Blues

There's two players that could be undervalued currently but worth inquiring about. Patrik Berglund and David Perron are top six forward type of forwards but they haven't exactly produced those type of numbers this season. Berglund before the last Blues game against Pittsburgh (where he scored 2 goals), hadn't scored since January 7th. He's a lot like Hornqivst in that he shoots the puck a lot. He's sitting at a mere 20 points this season, but expect a bigger second half. As for Perron, he's only played 24 games this season, but in those 24 he has 17 points. Even though it's a Hitchcock ran team, there is reason to believe that Perron also will pull in a big second half as it's taking him some time adjusting to the season itself, but also a new coach.

Post-game Review

Last weeks trade targets featured Jonas Hiller who was a must buy. He's gone onto win 3 of his 4 games since, losing the one game 1-0. If you haven't traded for him already, that buy-low period has passed. Then there's Michael Ryder, who I suggested buying but hasn't had a point since. Pay attention to me, sometimes.
