It has not been an easy time for daily fantasy hockey league players with the ever increasing amount of injuries, the trade deadline, and just some skittish overall play. However, the thing is this, there are only a few weeks left in the hockey season. All daily leagues and DraftKings especially will be quite the challenge and then there is the injury to Sidney Crosby and so many others to consider. There were over 120 players out of your lineups hockey fans. Honestly, it may seem nearly impossible to construct a daily team but in some ways it may be easier than ever.

WOW! We didn’t even include the Derek Roy trade in our list of notables because it was pretty much a 2nd and a lower level prospect but because of space constraints as well. There really was only one trade using salary to move salary. So far Ryane Clowe with three points leads the way in post trade production but hey that is only one game. Marian Gaborik had a nice two point effort on Thursday night.

Pittsburgh’s moves really have not panned out but were a decent insurance policy with the injuries to Paul Martin, Kris Letang, and Sidney Crosby. Crosby’s injury is the most serious as he is likely to miss the rest of the regular season. Jarome Iginla has to produce a point a game or damn close or else. One wonders why some teams did not dip deeper in the pool and the reason partly was the asking prices.

Just take note of the new addresses because value is going to be affected by injuries, playing time, and of course location. Location, location, location is the most important aspect ladies and gentlemen!

Cheaper than a large cup of coffee?

That is correct! Also, DraftKings gives you much better odds at winning some cash. If you have just one dollar, you can get in on the NHL Daily Dollar contest. The guaranteed payout is usually around $75 and first place could net you as much as $12.50. For a small investment, that is a pretty nice return for just one “George Washington”. It is as easy as signing up for an account, pony up some money (there is a surprise for that too), set your roster, and just let it ride. It’s that easy! The payout structure was outlined in our piece from two Fridays ago right here. Get on it while you can. Those entries fill in fast especially on the weekends.


Multiply The Fun By Dos?

Do you want to double your money? Yes, we all do! DraftKings gives you that chance right when you first sign up. With the ability to double your first time deposit, they give you a competitive edge most daily fantasy sites just cannot compete with. If you deposit $100, they give you $200. Would you like to put $200 into that new account? That turns into $400! That is easy money any way one slices it. All a person has to do is go register today. It takes all of a few minutes and you are ready to make some dough as they say.


That is it for now. See you next week for more from the daily fantasy hockey realm. Thanks for reading!
