Matt Cullen or how I learned to stop worrying and start loving being on Crosby's line.

Weekly NHL Forecaster 2/6 - 2/12

Below is the average of ‘CORSI For per 60 minutes' on the Home team and Away team to tell me if this is going to be a shot filled matchup. The graph below is sorted from the most offensively oriented games to the least offensively oriented. To put it in a nutshell, if you want goals scored -€” look at the top teams, if you want to see where your goalie will be seeing few shots and have the best opportunity look to the bottom.

Ten Notes:
1. Vancouver Canucks. Well their week of favorability is over (wasn't that fun) back to benching and avoiding them. 4 games on the road all far from home against a myriad of styles and goalies.

2. Edmonton Oilers. IF you are in a league that locks in for a the week -€” they have one game, vs. Chicago, avoid at all costs.

3. Minnesota Wild. Their opponents are a combined 16-17-7 over their last 10 games. It's a good time to be facing Winnipeg, Chicago, Detroit and Tampa Bay.

4. Detroit Red Wings. I think it's about time to admit that my bullish estimates on Detroit for January were wrong. They went 4-9 and now have to face three of the toughest teams in the league (Columbus, Washington and Minnesota), I'm running far from Detroit players AND benching their goalie this week.

5. Calgary Flames. Similar to the Oilers they have one game this week and it's at Pittsburgh. With the exception of Johnny Gaudreau, I'm benching every Flames player I have.

6. Dallas Stars, they have four games and on the surface some of it seems good until you realize every team they are facing is .500 or better over their last ten games, some are as high as .700.

7. Columbus Blue Jackets. They face a "rivalry"? which is now in Columbus's favor this year against a reeling Detroit team and also get a chance at Vancouver at home. Scott Hartnell (21% owned) has 8 points in his last 13 games to go with 12 PIM, +2, 8 hits and 5 blocked shots.

8. Pittsburgh Penguins. They face the two worst teams in the league (Colorado and Arizona) and Calgary not too far ahead of them in the standings. Matt Cullen (1% owned) is now on the top line. With Sidney Crosby. Pick him up. Seriously.

9. Montreal Canadiens. They have 3 of their 4 games on the road but they face the two worst teams in the league and then Boston and St. Louis who are both below .500 over their last 10, I think there is a chance for them to go 4-0 this week.

10. San Jose -€” the team that is 8-2 right now faces four teams at .500 or below over their last ten. I think they could keep a strong win % going, a lot of porous defenses as well.
