    Default Boqvist upside

    Iíve been interested in Boqvist for a while now. Is he going to be as good as advertised? 50-60 upside? The PP should be his to lose now.
    12 teams, points only keeper. Keep 9 any position.
    6 prospects. D even strength points worth 1.25, 1.75 PP. Forward even strength worth 1. 1.5 PP.

    After reading the title, I said 50-60 pt upside. Maybe more. PP1 is his now.

    Your estimate is good. There is a definite path for Boquist to become a 50-60 point player.

    Is Ian Mitchell a potential threat to Boqvist’s fantasy potential?

    No. He's gonna help him to reach it.

    Mitchell only usurps Boqvist if Boqvist is given multiple chances and falls on his face each time. I don't think we'll see a situation where Mitchell is such a dynamite producer that he affirmatively pushes Boqvist out of the way.

    I doubt it. Mitchell is more of an all-around defensive player while Boqvist is pure offense.

    One thing to keep in mind is that Boqvist may not get the power-play time right away. When Erik Gustafsson was scratched and then traded, Duncan Keith took over the power play. In those 10 games, Keith had seven power-play points while averaging 4:38 of power-play time per night (76.1 per cent of all of Chicago's power-play minutes). He also had 11 points, a plus-10, 26 shots and 18 blocked shots.

    I don't expect Keith to be a dominant power-play guy next season, but he should get first crack, and then multiple chances throughout the season if Boqvist goes through a rough patch.

    This is just a long way of saying that don't assume that "The PP should be Boqvist's to lose now."

    Writer of the weekly Top 10 column.

    12-team Keeper pool, straight points for forwards & dmen. Goalies get: 2 points per win, 3 per shutout, 1 point per assist & 1 point per shootout loss.

    League champ in 2013, 2015 and 2018.

    Top 8 forwards, 5 dmen and 2 goalies count.

    We keep 15 players (any position) plus two rookies.

    Forwards: Eichel, Marchessault, Pacioretty, Kyle Connor, Couturier, Stone, Tatar, Dadonov, R. Strome, J.T. Miller, E. Staal, Zegras, Heponiemi
    Defence: Hamilton, Suter, Krug, Pionk, Morrissey, Ellis, Ekman-Larsson,
    Goalies: Hellebuyck, Rinne, Rask
