Pick Six: Tuesday February 28

It seems as if the much-hyped trade deadline day is becoming less and less exciting every year. The days of the blockbuster trades in which teams are either clear buyers or clear sellers are a thing of the past, thanks to the salary cap and its resulting parity. Fantasy teams will experience little to no effect from the day that was; nonetheless, I’ll break down the day that was (or wasn’t) from a fantasy perspective as far as the most significant names are concerned.

Pick Six: Thursday October 6

It’s officially go time in fantasy hockey leagues, which means it’s time for our first Pick Six of the season. A new feature at Kukla’s Korner, the Pick Six will list six players of interest that you should know about as you set your fantasy lineup. Players listed will be worth a start or a sit because of hot/cold play, injuries, matchups, favorable line combinations, or just because they are in the news for whatever reason. But more than anything else, I will provide a fantasy hockey take on whatever I write, which I hope will make this article both interesting and informative.

Drum roll, please… my Pick Six for Thursday will include one player from each of the teams in action on Opening Night.

Sizing Up the Sleepers

In order to win a fantasy league, it’s not the early-round picks that matter (unless you choose Sidney Crosby and he misses half the season). The difference between winning and losing a fantasy league lies in making savvy mid to late round picks whose production level matches that of earlier-round picks.

With that strategy in mind, I’ve listed twelve players that I believe have the potential to exceed their current ranking on Yahoo, ESPN, CBS, or any other sites that host fantasy hockey. I’m not suggesting that you draft all of these players. But timing is everything, so these are names that you can consider if they appear at the right spot for you. I no longer enter drafts thinking that I must draft a particular player, since I could end up drafting the player earlier than I need to. Rather, I ensure that the player fills a particular need on my team (positional, statistical) before I add to my roster. Understanding player values is a critical component in winning any fantasy league – whether it be hockey, baseball, football, or fishing (yes, there is such a thing).
