My biggest hit has been William Nylander. I drafted him in the 9th Round (105th Overall). He's currently ranked 15th in Yahoo, after scoring twice against the Flyers last night.

My biggest disappointment has been Brayden Point. I selected him in the 2nd Round (16th Overall). He's currently ranked 114th in Yahoo. I expected him to score 90+ points this season with Kucherov back healthy. I could've taken Ovechkin (19th Overall) over Point, which really kills me. Yes, Ovi at 19th OA is a crime against humanity.

Also, who's been your best Waiver Wire pickup? Mine are Dylan Larkin and John Gibson.

Thx for sharing!

Biggest hit so far has been Jesse Puljujarvi, 15th round, 253rd overall. Shot up to 62nd.

Gonna say my biggest L has been taking Grubauer in the 3rd round, 37th overall. Passed over the following guys for him: Campbell, Andersen, Markstrom. He's doing better than his pre-draft ranking but he's also cost me points. McAvoy has also been a disappointment.

The league I'm in has 18 people so waiver wires are farther down the depth charts. I've gotten Compher off waivers as my best pickup.

Best pick: Round 22 ( last pick ), Elvis Merzlikins, he has 5 wins in 6 appearances and has allowed less than 2 goals in every one of his wins

Worst pick: Round 4, Ivan Provorov, I don't like going for the point dependant players and I thought Provorov's hits, blocks and shots would be a steady source of points, he's been pretty hit or miss so far, my round 2 Pick Pastrnak, or my 1st pick Mackinnon are also in consideration as Pasta hasn't had any high point games and has been unnoticeable on the scoresheet some times and Mack hasn't played as much as you'd want your 1st pick to have played

best waiver pick-up: Getzlaf, the man has been doing great so far

Compher could be huge while MacKinnon is out for the next 3 weeks. And in fairness, not many people had Markstrom and Freddy doing this well. Campbell would've been a sweet pick, but drafting goalies is usually the toughest part of fantasy, imo.

I'm not sure any Ducks players were even drafted in my draft. I got Gibson on waivers. Maybe Zegras or Drysdale were picked late, I don't remember. Elvis has been a stud and he's a huge reason for CBJ's success so far. I think the biggest mistake most people make is placing too much value on goals and assists and not nearly enough value on hits, SOG, blocks, etc...That stuff can win you a lot of matches.

Yeah, I like players who get me a good amount of fantasy points consistently and Faceoffs, shots, blocks, hits, etc are usually more consistent than hoping your guy gets points

Biggest hit: Either Elias Lindhom (9th round, 98th overall) or Zach Hyman (11th round, 122nd overall). Both have been terrific.
Biggest disappointment: I drafted Nathan MacKinnon 2nd overall, ahead of Leon Draisaitl. MacKinnon missed the first couple of games with COVID, and now is out for 3 weeks, though I suspect he'll come back strong once healthy. Therefore, I'd have to say Taylor Hall (7th round, 74th overall), who has been a real letdown so far. I really hope he finds his groove with Krejci gone, if not I quite possibly will try and trade him.

Lindholm is a huge hit. The fact that he plays in the Pacific against relatively weak defensive teams really boosts his numbers. I saw Hyman score last night in Boston. You see how much the Leafs miss him. Once MacKinnon comes back with Makar and Mikko at 100% his numbers will explode. Taylor Hall, on the other hand, doesn't have much value. But, Lindholm and Hyman far outweigh his failure.

I also picked Buchnevich. If he hadn't missed a handful of games his numbers would be solid. I'm holding him for now.

Also sucks that I passed on William Nylander who was picked right after I took Buchnevich

At least Kyrou is doing well

Buchnevich has probably become my best fantasy player. He scores a lot, especially on the PP. He shoots the puck and he's usually a plus (+/-) player. Along with Nylander, he's saving my season.

I’m also lamenting picking Jordan Greenway over Timo Meier……

Meier is currently ranked #10 in Yahoo. His category coverage is unreal and he wasn't even on my radar in the draft. Now, I'm banking on Tuukka Rask.

I picked Daniel sprong 60th overall. That was a bad idea. I got Kuzy in the 10th round.

I also picked Point in the 2nd round. He's gonna go off in the second half, especially with Kucherov back.

I got Sam Bennett as an 18th round pick, not bad. Heck, I'm even going to consider Draisitl at 3rd overall a steal since he's ranked first in the league.

As for the worst, probably Alec Martinez. I'm pretty sure he was auto drafted, as my 3rd round pick. I dropped him (though that's mostly because he was injured and I had better injured players).
