NHL Cash Core, November 20th
I play NHL primarily on FanDuel, but will include Draftkings pricing.
Patrick Kane – Blackhawks – RW (8.4k/8.6k)
If you’re going to spend up tonight, Patrick Kane is the star to target. After scoring a goal in seven straight games his streak was finally snapped but he still managed 2 assists – oh, darn! He’s arguably the most talented offensive player in the league and he’s facing a team that gives up more goals than any other. It’s a hefty price tag, especially on Draftkings but you can’t find a more consistent scorer right now plus the awesome match up.
Artemi Panarin – Blackhawks – LW (4.3k/5.7k)
I’m sticking with the same game and target – the Flames. Artemi is having a sensational rookie season and playing on a line with Patrick Kane is a major reason. He’s greatly benefitting from being paired with a top talent playmaker and as mentioned, this is a prime match up. Panarin is also paired with Kane on the first PP unit and I expect the Hawks to score plenty tonight. He has 10 points in the last six games and tonight that streak should be extended. He’s incredibly underpriced still on FanDuel and should be a lock if you play there.
James Neal – Predators – RW (6.4k/6.5k)
Neal is having a solid start to the season and runs into a solid match up against the Blue Jackets. The Jackets have been playing better they have been giving up goals and the Predators are playing great hockey. Neal plays on the top line and on the top PP unit and he’s been producing. He has five points in the last four games and gets close to 18 minutes on the ice per game. He has great potential for the price.
Pavel Datsyuk – Red Wings – C (6.6k/5.3k)
Datsyuk is an elite talent and due to missing the beginning of the season his price does not yet match his level of play. He’s currently on the 2nd line and 2nd PP unit but Detroit shuffles lines frequently and he could be with the first unit at any time. It’s not the best match up against the Kings but the Magic Man is pretty match up proof and most of Detroit’s limited scoring comes from the top 2 units. His price is quite good on Draftkings and it will surely rise as he plays more. He’s getting 20 minutes a night and shooting the puck – the points will come.
