GPP thoughts for 1/7 DraftKings Slate:
Tonight’s slate features 7 games and sets up great for GPPs. With the one most obvious play (Dallas) having questions with their recent line changes, the goals can come from anywhere and if you can figure out where they will come from you will be in good shape. This is easier said than done but on a night like tonight do not be afford to ride your hunches and fire multiple lineups.
Top Stacks for 1/7 DraftKings Slates:
Dallas – Winnipeg’s penalty kill has been dreadful at 77% and they lead the league in times shorthanded at 152. Dallas has a top four power play and leads the league with 3.45 GF/G. While Dallas’ ownership and price usually makes it hard to stack in GPPs the news from yesterday that Benn and Seguin were spilt up during practice might scare some people off. A stack of Benn, Spezza, Nichushkin, and Klingberg is preferred because it gives expose to both power play units at a cost of $24,300. Make sure to monitor the status of the lines as they could be just a practice experiment.
NY Islanders – Washington is playing their fourth straight on the road and the Islanders have scored at least 5 goals in three of the last six. While the likely hood of a 5 goal output against Holtby is slim, it could happen and if it did could springboard you to the top of the leaderboard. A stack of Lee, Tavares, and Bailey for $16,400 is the direction I lean here.
Detroit – The Red Wings have struggled as late only scoring more that 2 goals once in their last five games, But I could see them getting back on track at San Jose tonight. Martin Jones has struggled at home with a .890 save %. I want exposure if the Red Wings can exploit Jones’ home struggles with a stack of Abdelkader, Zetterberg, and Nyquist for $15,500.
Cheap defenseman to use to fill out your stacks:
Niklas Kronwall ($3,200) Washington – Gets power play minutes and faces a team that struggles at home.
Connor Murphy ($2,800) Arizona – Gets power play minutes and is in the top pair.
Christian Ehrhoff ($2,900) Los Angeles – Gets power play minutes and gets a great matchup.
