These six picks for Thursday aren’t lead pipe locks by any stretch of the imagination, but the name of the game is only to fare better than your opponent(s).
Jarome Iginla is not only the subject of trade rumors, but he has also underperformed this season. Should you bench him on a busy Tuesday night? Find out in the day’s Pick Six.
Since Cory Schneider’s win streak has now come to an end, Roberto Luongo should finally get his chance to return on Sunday. But does he make a good start against the Flames? Ian Gooding addresses the situation in the weekend Pick Six.
Perhaps there will be a few start/sit decisions in fantasy lineups on Thursday, but we’ll take the opportunity to identify some unlikely names that could possess some immediate value and some usual names that are mired in slumps.
Can coaching changes have an impact in fantasy leagues? Sure! This version of the Pick Six includes players who could be positively impacted by Monday’s coaching changes.
Just like many NHL teams, the Pick Six is playing back-to-backs on Friday and Saturday. Following a busy Black Friday, which you hopefully you spent more time watching hockey than shopping, Saturday also provides plenty of action.
With the exception of Colorado, Los Angeles, Nashville, and San Jose, all NHL teams are in action on Black Friday. You’ll need to set your fantasy lineups before you head out shopping, though.
As we near American Thanksgiving, we hockey fans have a lot to be thankful for. In particular, we need to be grateful for the return of one Sidney Crosby, the NHL’s marquee player.
A total of 24 teams are in action on Saturday. Rather than listing them all, I’ll just say that all teams except Anaheim, Calgary, Carolina, Colorado, Ottawa, and Vancouver are in action on Saturday.
For the next Pick Six, I’m changing the rules a little. Fantasy owners need to make roster decisions on both busy and non-busy nights; plus, some of the players I’d like to mention happen to play on the non-busy nights.
