Unlike Wall Street, there are some fantastic value buys right now in the fantasy hockey world. Every year GM’s frantically look to sell off undervalued and under performing players much too early. There are also a number of players who have a current value much higher than where it should be. (Aaron Voros, anyone?) It is time for you to capitalize…
Roberto Luongo. Luongo has gotten off to a bit of a slow start (he tends to do this every year), and it is the perfect time to throw out an offer for an undervalued keeper league stud. Instead of costing the usual arm and a leg, you may be able to snag him for just one limb.
Chris Drury. With a measly two assists through 10 games for the Rangers, Drury is slumping. He has been pushed to the wing by the emergence of Brandon Dubinsky, but he is much too clever (and hardworking) to let the slump continue for much longer. Look for Drury to catch fire soon.
Joe Corvo. Slumping after many predicted a big year. With Pitkanen out for at least a month now, Corvo has no more excuses for his lack of production.
Milan Michalek. With only one goal and four points through seven games, Michalek is slumping. The Sharks have a good record but have been a bit inconsistent as they get used to a new coach and new game plan. Michalek will break out very soon.
Kyle Wellwood. Has looked great in the two games that he has replaced Pavol Demitra on the second line in Vancouver. He will continue his point-per-game ways if he keeps up the solid two-way play. Wellwood is an absolute magician with the puck, especially on the powerplay.
Filip Kuba. Leading defensemen in points with 11 (through Sunday). He is the only viable option for the Senators right now, but they will make a trade at some point. His value is only going to go down.
Martin Havlat. Highlight reel goal, check. Havlat has accomplished what he tends to do each year before getting hurt. And since he is still healthy, time to sell!
Keith Tkachuk. Looks revitalized playing with the young talent in St. Louis, but he does not have the legs anymore to keep up the torrid goal-scoring pace.
Todd Bertuzzi. Bertuzzi has made me eat my words (so far), but his bad back and the physicality of the Northwest division will eventually catch up on him. He will produce as long as he is both healthy and able to skate with Iginla, but he has not played a full season since 2005-2006 with Vancouver.
Aaron Voros. Solid role player with good hands, but this one should be obvious.
