Panthers have an easier path than most

NHL: New York Islanders at Florida Panthers Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to this week’s Fantasy Hockey Forecaster! In here, you’ll find:

  • Each team’s ranking for goalies, forwards, PK and PP against the other teams in the league. These stats are as of 10/23.
  • Three players who are on fire (this might not even be points wise, it might be an uptick in play that signals to me they are on the cusp of some point production
  • Three players who are cooling off (this will also include players that aren’t materializing the way we expect)
  • Three free agent pickups (among all players under 50% owned, preferably some in the single digits and some that are close to 50 to feed all different sizes of leagues)
  • The schedule which will show each team they play and what the individual rankings are for each matchup, this is more useful in the daily leagues where you are looking at individual matchups

Let’s begin!

3 players who are on fire

  1. Ryan McDonagh (78% owned). On fire over the last two weeks with a goal and 7 assists to go with a +8, 2 power play points and 22 blocked shots.
  2. Elias Lindholm (79% owned) nine points including 3 goals and 5 power play points over the last two weeks

3 players who are cooling off

  1. Brad Marchand (100% owned) if you are in a league where PIM hurt you his 20 PIM and -4 is not helping.
  2. Erik Karlsson (100% owned) until he has a halfway decent week, he stays on this list.
  3. Joe Pavelski (93% owned) two goals and -6 over the last two weeks is not that great.

3 free agent pickups (under 50%)

  1. Luke Glendening (3% owned). Sitting on the Red Wings third line doesn’t sound appealing but Justin Abdelkader and Tyler Bertuzzi are grinders and they are seeing point production from it. He has 7 points in the last two weeks.
  2. Mikko Koivu (14% owned). He will always be a good source for faceoffs won but once in a while he gets a few short handed points (he has one in the last two weeks) and he has five assists, +2 and 2 power play points to go with it.
  3. Derek Stepan (15% owned) Arizona in general is playing well lately they’ve won five of their last seven games and Derek has three goals and three assists over that time to go with 63 faceoffs won and two shorthanded points.
