    I did one team tonight:

    Crosby, Turris
    Stone, Forsberg, Drouin
    Karlsson, Stralman
    Elliott
    Can't remember my utility.

    I'm hoping to win a big $2 tonight.

    Playing the $1 game to learn how it works.

    I'm basically playing the money I paid for the guide.

    I think we'll need to clarify which site we're using.
    Seems you both are in Fantasy Kings? There's no UT spot in FanDuel.

    I'm getting rocked tonight in the lineups I set.

    I went with Palat/Kucherov - seems lineups I'm facing opted for Callahan/Drouin
    I was excited to see Hoffman get in on the Sens's goals -- but seems lots of folks had Stone and Turris too.

    Ugh.

    Some early bargains I think:
    Klingberg -- seems he's nowhere near some of the other PPQBs
    Hoffman -- linemates make the difference
    Panarin - was dirt cheap
    Franson is cheap too -- PPQB
    Callahan and Drouin are good value
    Points-only, Full Keeper Dynasty League
    Active roster (no starts, just total points): 12 FW, 6 D, 1 Goalie

    Forwards: Kucherov, Hall, Pacioretty, Couture, Johansen, Nichushkin, E. Lindholm, W. Nylander, Hoffman, Pavelski, Eberle, E. Kane, Mi. Granlund, Arvidsson, Little, Jarnkrok, Koivu, Ty Johnson, Palat,

    Defense: Gostisbehere, OEL, Hamilton, Josi, Krug, Vatanen, Pietrangelo, Vlasic

    Goal: Holtby, Darling, Varlamov

    Farm: Juolevi, Borgstrom

    Niemi has 8.6 points and the game isn't even over yet!
    Fabbri is helping a couple of my teams with 1G and 1SOG, he was 0.7% owned

    The guy in 1st in a couple big $10,000 pools is a guy by the name of I_Slewfoot_U who is pretty well known in NHL fantasy contests, at least on draftkings but I believe he plays them all. I see him in almost every single contest with anywhere from 10 to 80 entries per, he is usually in the big money ones too!

    These three were with the same player line-up, note how the field of play greatly determines standings and payout
    34/1150 = $25 ($5 entry)
    13/575 = $12 ($2 entry)
    1082/30,612 = $11 ($3 entry)

    I went 3/3 on the $1 double-up contests, 18 teams, top 9 get $1.80 (I finished 3rd, 4th, 5th in three leagues) (these seem like easy money)

    Tonight: $46 in, $71 out.

    I won my first dollar last night. Finished 5/23. My utility was Zibanejad.

    I entered an other $1 contest for tonight. Hoping to double up again.

    Went with:
    Tavares Carter
    Toffoli Okposo Nyquist
    Boychuck Green
    Schneider
    R.Strome

    Nice!
    I am thinking about an all Winnipeg lineup, I think they can do to NJ what they did to BOS!
    LA might be on fire after getting smoked by the Sharks too.

    Almost a complete goose-egg for me last night.
    I didn't take any DET players and the LAK completely messed up the majority of my lineups (except Toffoli he was great haha).
    Doughty and Nash were my biggest flops.
    Abdelkader was a BEAST for those who drafted him.


    I have 6 lineups in 61 contests tonight!

    I won $6 last night. I replaced Abdelkader and Howard at the last minute (to fit Tavares into the lineup) and went with Hutchinson as my goalie - woulda, coulda, shoulda.

    Keith Kinkaid is in net for the Devils - I'm betting my money on WSH tonight if I can fit them into the lineup.

    Good luck fellas.

    Hemsky - 4

    Obviously picking the best value players from each team is the way to win but the chances of nailing that are obviously pretty low.
    I might spend some time looking at what a lineup from a team that had a blowout win would have looked like for earnings.
    Example, a florida last night could have been huge money, however, you cant fill the whole team with FLA players; 1. they don't have too many good players lol 2. draftkings wont let you!
