10/23/21 NHL Main Slate Analysis and Breakdown

Favorite Targets Elias Pettersson (6900), Quinn Hughes (5300), JT Miller (5500), Brock Boeser (5600) Seattle has been one of the worst defenses in the league this year, which isn’t terribly surprising considering they are an expansion team. They are bottom five in Expected Goals Against at even strength, which doesn’t bode well for tonight. The… Continue reading 10/23/21 NHL Main Slate Analysis and Breakdown

San Jose vs Toronto One of the most fun surprises thus far in the early stages of this season is that the Sharks look like a good team. The kids, William Eklund and Jonathan Dahlen (among others on the roster), have really propelled the scoring for the Sharks and have had a great start to… Continue reading 10/22/21 NHL Main Slate Analysis and Breakdown

10/19/21 NHL Main Slate Analysis and Breakdown

Colorado vs Washington So there are two very important additions to the lineups of this game. The first, and the biggest, is that all-star center Nathan MacKinnon should be good to go. He’s an offensive juggernaut that could absolutely have 100 points in a full season. It’s an expensive price in a good matchup though.… Continue reading 10/19/21 NHL Main Slate Analysis and Breakdown

Toronto vs NYR The biggest news of the night is that superstar Auston Matthews is back in the lineup for the Leafs. He’s the closest player in the league to McDavid, but instead of speed, insane vision, and playmaking, Matthews uses an insane wrist shot and soft hands all around the ice to score at… Continue reading 10/18/21 NHL Main Slate Analysis and Breakdown

10/16/21 NHL Main Slate Analysis and Breakdown

Dallas vs Boston I would like this game a bit more on a smaller slate. But on a twelve gamer, this is a pretty gross spot. Both Dallas and Boston are above average defensive teams and I wouldn’t be surprised if this stayed under five total goals. I probably wouldn’t full stack anywhere in this… Continue reading 10/16/21 NHL Main Slate Analysis and Breakdown

Chicago vs New Jersey This game should have a fair bit of offense opportunity with Bernier in net for the Devils and the Blackhawks still likely being a team with a poor defense. Henrik Borgstrom moves to the top line center position in lieu of Tyler Johnson. I love pairing him up with Patrick Kane… Continue reading 10/15/21 NHL Main Slate

NHL Analysis 5/5

WAS vs NYR After the District’s Dicknose Tom Wilson took a cheap shot at Pavel Buchnevich and put Artemi Panarin on season-ending injured reserve, we will certainly have a fiery bout between two teams that want to rip each other apart. The Rangers offense is significantly worse without Panarin in the lineup, however we will… Continue reading NHL Analysis 5/5

NHL Analysis 4/19

Detroit vs Dallas I don’t love this game all too much. While Detroit is still a bottom third team in the league, they’re one of the best at limiting quality. They just have shit goaltending and no offensive pressure. Dallas should be able to control this game for the most part so I will only… Continue reading NHL Analysis 4/19
