Thomas Greiss (G), Islanders

FanDuelDraftKingsOpponentGAASV%QS%Opp Goal TotalMoneyline

The New York Islanders have Thomas Greiss starting in net, and he is a very serviceable backup. The Islanders are -180 favorites, and Greiss' salary frees up a ton of room for skaters. He has a ton of upside with the Islanders allowing 33 shots per game, and the Hurricanes averaging 30 per game. I have been picking on Carolina for this reason, because they do generate shots, but are just scoring 1.89 goals per game. Greiss stands a good chance at the win tonight, as well has racking up a ton of saves. He is a safe GPP play.

The wings are stacked tonight with great matchups, but I am turning away from those Canadiens and Stars players real quick. Patrick Kane has been electric this season, ranking fourth in total points. He skates with the second line, although they would be first line quality on many of the teams in the league. He also does his fair share of damage on the power play. He has only failed to record a point in two games this season, making him one of the safer plays, yet he still carries plenty of upside.

For the price here, it can not get much better. He is averaging a point per game on the hottest team in hockey. He is on the first line of both even strength, and the power play. Montreal has a top ten power play rate, and are scoring 3.60 goals per game. Edmonton is one of the non-threatening defensive teams in the league, much like last year, and are allowing just over three goals per game. Fire up your Montreal stacks tonight.

With the absence of Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook has really stepped his game up. He has five points in the last three games, and is on the top power play unit. The Jets are allowing 2.78 goals per game, and I believe you can get top defensive production with Seabrook at a discount from the other big names. He is shooting the puck more, and has taken on a bigger role. Take advantage of the price while you can.

Mike Cammalleri (W), Devils

The Devils' winger is one of the more underrated fantasy players, and his price shows it. He has 11 points in nine game this season, and is tied for sixth with guys like Jon Tavares, and Henrik Zetterberg. Philly has a middle of the road defense, allowing 2.75 goals per game. New Jersey has a top ten power play, while Philly has a bottom ten power play killing rate. The Devils should be overlooked among offenses.

Value Plays

Josh Bailey (W - NYI) FD: $5,500 DK: $4,000

New York has switched up their lines, and Josh Bailey is now on the first line with Tavares. Any time we can move a bottom line up here, we usually have a sweet value play. He has five points in the last five games, and takes on the Hurricanes, who are allowing almost three goals a game.

Colton Parayko (D - STL) FD: $3,800 DK: $3,300

With some injuries, Colton Parayko took advantage of the expanded ice time, and made an impact. He is a second line defenseman, and is playing on the top power play unit. He is a cheap defensive play, with volume to land a point or two.

Cody Eakin (C - DAL) FD: $4,500 DK: $4,400

Cody Eakin is skating with Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin, which means points will come his way. He is entirely two cheap, and I am looking at him for value in a lot of my lineups tonight. The Stars are scoring 3.44 goals per game, and this top line is one of the best in hockey.

Patric Hornqvist (W - PIT) FD: $7,300 DK: $5,700

This is a DraftKings specific play, because the Penguins' prices have me biting still, despite their offensive struggles. They have shifted lines again, and Hornqvist is on the top line, and on the top power play unit. Buffalo is allowing over three goals per game.
