NHL Cash Core, December 1st
I’ve been on vacation for the holiday so I’ve neglected the NHL for a bit but I will still be trying to get up articles on the full slate days. A lot of the new money is drying up already in the NHL pools/leagues so I’m concentrating more on the NBA. NHL articles may become more sparse as the season continues and I focus more on GPPs.
Dylan Larkin – LW – 5.3k
Larkin’s great start to his rookie campaign continues and he’s now tied for the lead league in even strength goals with 10. He’s scored six goals in his last seven games and he continues to play on the top line and on the second PP unit. He plays with all of Detroit’s top offensive talent and is still extremely underpriced.
Patrick Kane – RW – 8.4k
Somebody needs to explain his price to me. He’s one of, if not the, most talented player in the league and currently leading in points with 37. Been (10.5k) and Seguin (8.8k) are right behind him, but he’s $400 cheaper than Seguin and 2.1k than Benn! What!? Play him. Play him every slate he’s in right now. 15 points in his last 10 games, and a 10+ game point streak. No need to spend up on Benn when you can get this elite talent for 8.4k.
Tyler Seguin – C – 8.8k
Like Kane above, Seguin is also underpriced for the season he’s having. He also has a wonderful match up tonight against the struggling Flames and has a great chance to extend his eight game point streak (and 13 in his last 10). I’m not spending up on Benn but playing Seguin has just as much upside and he can benefit from assisting on Benn’s goals.
Mike Hoffman – LW – 6.3k
Hoffman is in a positive match up against Philly and he’s having a solid season following up on his great rookie season. He has 22 points in 20 games and is averaging 4.4 FP per game. Not too shabby for 6.3k. He has 7 points in his last 4 games and he’s still on the top line and playing point on the 2nd PP unit. He’s a nice mid-range player to fill in around Seguin/Kane and will still leave you some salary left to work with and use a mid-priced goalie.
