    Default Fiala

    Wtf? I drafted him for 60 plus, and by plus, I mean possibly over 70. I used to own Laine, and traded him because he was being poorly used. This is reminiscent of that.

    Did you think Fiala had a better supporting cast in Minny?

    Better than Johansson and Bonino? Yes.

    Even outside of Johansson and Bonino it's not like MN has a ton of options offensively. So I'm not sure exactly what you were hoping for. He busted out last year playing mostly with vets like Staal/Koivu/Parise and 2 of them are gone. He's playing top PP and should continue to get plenty of ice time. He's averaging 19 min per game...and it's only been 4 games. Personally I thought the Fiala hype got out of hand considering the current Wild roster, so it wouldn't surprise if he disappoints a lot of owners this year.

    Edit to add that Fiala has looked good so far in the 3 games I've seen. Shooting the puck a ton as well. He'll get his points.

    He's had a ton of shots also so he's due. I don't think he outscores Laine, but are you seriously worried about him after 4 games? Bobby Ryan leads the league in goals, last I checked. Don't see him staying there.

    Fiala is a bit snakebitten. He will start putting up points soon. I think he still scores about 45 + this season.

    Agreed his supporting cast is not the most seasoned, but there are some great young players around him.

    We are only 4 games in and he is getting loads of opportunity. The points will come.

    Haha definitely. Just hoping for continued moderate production and a trade for some picks.

    As for Fiala....it's a week into the season here. Don't rush into anything.

    You'll need to be more patient.

    I drafted Fiala last year. Same exact thing. He was awful for the first month. Not sure if you didn't know that or have forgotten, but I'd suggest brushing up on what happened next.

    Not too worried, Parise also has 0 pts. Minny has only scored 1 powerplay goal and it arguably should've been callled back due to a hand pass. Only Kaprizov i would say has racked up the points.

    Zuccarello coming back will change up the lines. I am hoping they eventually stick with Kaprizov and Fiala together.
    One day I will quit fantasy hockey, today is not that day.

    Fiala has 19 SOG in four games and five or six posts hit. Top of the league in xGF. He's going to pop any day now.

    Someone dropped him in my pts only league the other day and I used my first waiver to grab him. Going to be a literal steal for me this season.

    I love him as a player I really do but I did not keep him because of the team around him. The likes of MoJo as a #1 center was something I could not look past.

    I have Kapirsov & Fiala in all my leagues this year, and my faith is not waivering. It has only been a couple of games; even though the season is compressed in real time, it still may take a few games to get into the groove. As others have said, hes getting the ice time and shooting the puck. They have alot of firepower and do not have serious expectations from fans/ownership to win now.
    I'm hoping Fiala starts a bit slow then elevates to the 2pt/game he was putting up last year before the stoppage.
