Players you should be drafting in all standard formats:
- Zdeno Chara: Easy argument for a top-3 defenseman.
- Tyler Seguin: Should lead the B’s in points… again.
- Tuuka Rask: This is Rask’s tryout. We’ve seen flashes of brilliance as Thomas’ backup and he could easily end the season as a top-5 goalie as the main guy.
- Patrice Bergeron: Finally topped 60-points and could easily do it again with a similar lineup.
- Milan Lucic: 30-goals, 60 points, and plenty of PIMs is still on the table.
- David Krejci: The B’s know how to rotate all three of their top centres into fantasy relevance so Krejci is still a solid option in the deep centre position.
Players you’ll take as a flier at the end of your draft or in deeper leagues. Think 12-16 teams with multiple forward and util spots.
- Brad Marchand: If he’s not on the powerplay, you don’t want him. Should get your first look if there are any injuries to the top-6.
- Nathan Horton: He’s cleared to play but the injuries have started to pile up. Let someone else overdraft him and take the risk.
