Jordan Eberle RW (Edmonton) - $5,900
Eberle should be pretty good value at that price point, but I'd hold off on taking him tonight. He missed the first month of the season and that's seemed to take its toll as he has three goals and no assists in 11 games now. Combine that with a minus-nine rating and he hasn't been worth picking up on most nights. I think there's still a good chance he'll turn things around at some point this season, but I can't recommend rolling the dice on the idea that today might be that day.
Carl Soderberg C (Colorado) - $5,900
Soderberg has actually done well lately with four points in as many games. But when you factor that in, you're still left with a player that has four goals, nine assists, and a minus-nine rating in 23 contests. That's not great value for your investment. Soderberg has recorded 48 and 44 points in his previous two campaigns, so his recent hot streak isn't a case of a player that's bouncing back over a slow start. Rather it's more likely just part of the normal ebb and flow of a campaign. If he was a bit cheaper, that would make him a decent value play in my mind in the hopes that his hot streak would persist a little longer, but given his price there's better options out there.
Anders Lee LW (NY Islanders) - $6,300
Lee has been somewhat hot-and-cold this season with all but four of his 12 points occurring during point streaks of three or more games. That makes him a little more risky given that he's been held off the scoresheet in his last two contests, but even if you're inclined to dismiss that, his price point still makes him someone you should pass on. For $6,300, you should expect more than an average of 0.5 points per game from a forward.
Jonathan Bernier G (Toronto) - $6,900
With James Reimer still hurt, you might assume that Bernier starting tonight is a given. That's not the case though as Garret Sparks will make his NHL debut. Sparks has gotten off to a great start in the minors (1.90 GAA, .936 save percentage), but this still emphasizes just how far Bernier has fallen this season as this likely has more to do with Bernier's season-long struggles rather than a desire to give Sparks a shot.
