    Default Early Lineup Projections for the 2021 World Juniors

    The 2021 World Juniors are still a long way out but I was bored, so I started making lineup projections already. Prospects who make it to the World Juniors usually gain value in fantasy hockey leagues, so it's a good idea to start stockpiling possible players early on and then selling them after the tournament when their perceived value is very high.

    Part 1 focuses on Group A which includes Canada, Finland, Switzerland, Slovakia and Germany. Part 2 should be coming out over the next couple of days.

    I hear a lot of good things about Tuukka Tieksola. Wager a guess on what his ceiling could be in the NHL?

    Top six winger with 70+ points. I ranked him in the 2nd round pre-draft. Hugely talented offensive player and a great skater. Very underdeveloped physically but once he adds some man strength to his scrawny body, he'll be on everyone's radar. But that'll take time, so he's more of a long-term project but one whose upside makes it worth the wait.

    He can be a No. 1 goalie pretty quickly, let's say in 2-3 years. But the goalie situation in Florida is a bit of a mystery as to what they'll end up doing with Bob signed for another 6 years at $10M. I guess it depends on which Bob we see over the next 2-3 years.

    A kid to keep an eye out for a one of my buddies sons who plays for the Mooseheads; Cameron (Cam) Whynot. He was a rookie this past year for the Moose and after they traded away most of their vets to rebuild, he assumed a ton of icetime and it was noticed around the league. He really stepped up on the blueline and played in most situations. Not too shabby for a 16 year old.


    10 Team, Points Only, Cash League

    25 Man Roster (no position), top 20 point getters count at end of month
    Keep 20/25 at seasons end, Cut 5 to FA for redrafting
    Goalie points W=2pt L=-1pt SHO=2pt

    Stamkos, Tavares, Eichel, Couture, Wheeler, Lee, Gusev, RThomas, Kucherov, Nugent-Hopkins, Burns, Zuccarello, JBoqvist, JSchwartz, KPalmieri, KConnor, Necas, Yandle, Point, Konecny, TBertuzzi, NSchmaltz, Vrana

    G- Vasilevskiy, Bobrovsky
