Its so frustrating, because any of these guys could have a great season(if there was a season) if they could just stay healthy and get icetime. Pierre-Marc Bouchard is easily one of the most underappreciated players in all of fantasy hockey right now. The guy oozes offensive instinct, great vision, stickhandling, speed...hes just been messed up due to concussion related stuff.
Anyways...I'd steer clear of Markov. Nikitin isn't a bad choice because whenever Wisniewski gets hurt or suspended(which both are high probabilities), he'll receive a bump in PP time.
Me, I got a soft spot for PMB because hes a really good guy with a ton of talent, and I want believe he can beat this thing.
Stamkos was asked today in Tampa how he can top last season:
"Well, get into the playoffs. That's the big key and that's our goal here."
