Ryan Miller G (Vancouver) - $8,300
It looks like four of the top eight priced netminders are not going on Saturday but Ryan Miller should be between the pipes and he looks to be a poor play. He has given up three or more goals in five of his last six games and he has won only two matchups in his last six. He has been mediocre all season and it should continue against San Jose.
Victor Hedman D (Tampa Bay) - $5,900
Hedman finally picked up a point on Thursday and it was his first one since February 18, a span of eight games. Hedman had a breakthrough season last year and has good stats this season with six goals and 37 points but he has been in a slump of late and that should be considered if you want him in your lineup.
Brian Campbell D (Florida) - $4,500
Campbell scored in his last game but had only one assist in his previous six games. He has six goals and 26 points in 64 games which is not great but his plus-23 rating is. Nevertheless, Campebell does not score like he has in the past and his lack of penalty minutes (16) and lack of shots on goal (80) make him a poor play on most nights.
Jordan Staal C (Carolina) - $5,400
Staal has been in a mini-slump of late as he is pointless in his last four games. He plays with Elias Lindholm and Joakim Nordstrom and while Lindholm was drafted fifth overall in 2013, the line does not strike fear in the eyes of poolies. Staal was hot before the slump but look for him to continue to struggle for points Saturday.
Nazem Kadri C (Toronto) - $6,100
Although he is now Toronto's go to center, the Maple Leafs do not score very often and Kadri is a prime example of that as he has only 12 goals and 35 points this season. His minus-seven rating does not help. He was pointless in his last game but did have a goal and seven points in his previous six games. Don't expect a lot from him against Andrew Hammond of the Senators and it should be a surprise if Toronto scores more than two goals.
Matt Beleskey LW (Boston) - $6,000
Beleskey has not garnered a point in his last three games, but did have five goals and an assist in the four games previous to that. He is a streaky scorer this season but he only has 13 goals in 63 games thus far, with 19 assists. Beleskey is seeing ice time with David Krejci and David Pastrnak on the second unit as well as second line action on the power play so he does get plenty of chances despite his lack of scoring.
Brendan Gallagher RW (Montreal) - $5,900
Gallagher has scored three goals in his last seven games but has not had an assist in that time frame so it's hard to compile fantasy points with just the occasional goal . He has 18 goals and 35 points this season despite being out for 17 games with a couple of broken fingers. He has a goal in his last four games.
