Eight games on a MONDAY!? What is this. Oh well, I like it.
For those of you who have used this site for years, you have almost certainly seen my Daily Goalie rankings before. For those of you who are new, here is a little blow-by-blow.
On evenings where there are eight-plus games on the NHL schedule, I rank every goalie from 1-to-x (x=number of goalies playing that night) to help you decide which goalies to start that night. I take into account all standard Fantasy Hockey goalie statistics such as Wins, GAA and SV%. This is a fantastic tool for both year-long and daily fantasy players.
For year-long players, I am constantly faced with the questions: Pick two between Goalie X, Y or Z. Or something along those lines. Instead of answer each question individually, I have made it simple for anyone who has goalie questions to see who I would start. So, if Goalie X is ranked fourth, Goalie Y is ranked 2nd and Goalie Z is ranked 9th. Then you would start Goalies X and Y that night. Simple enough right! Good. Moving along.
For Daily players, I have listed the prices of each of tonight’s starting goalies from DraftKings. If you’ve built your roster and you have $8,200 left, then pick my top goalie under $8,200. Or if you start building your roster with the best goalie that night, pick my top goalie or upper-tier goalie with the best value.
- Sergei Bobrovsky - @ PHI – $8,200
- Jake Allen - @ LAK – $7,500
- J-F Berube - vs. CAR – $7,900

- Mike Smith - vs. COL – $8,000
- Jonathan Quick - vs. STL – $7,700
- Marc-Andre Fleury - @ CGY – $7,600
- Pekka Rinne - vs. WPG – $8,100
- Steve Mason - vs. CBJ – $7,000

New York Rangers: With Henrik Lundqvist out and Antti Raanta coming off of a nice performance last night, Raanta should be back between the pipes.
Boston Bruins: Tuukka Rask should absolutely get the nod as the Bruins are in the thick of a playoff race in the Eastern Conference.
Colorado Avalanche: Who knows? Who cares? I could get the call-up for the start tonight. Truthfully, it should be Calvin Pickard.
