Pete and Rob catch up after another huge NHL slate to break down all the storylines heading into a busy weekend of games. The guys discuss some fantasy waiver wire options from the Capitals, including defenseman Justin Schultz and rookie goalie Vitek Vanecek, and the impact of the eventual returns of Washington’s top players and also elite Bruins forward David Pastrnak, who’s in the top 10 overall rankings on NHL.com/Fantasy. The guys discuss teams with multiple games in hand early in the season (Stars, Hurricanes, Lightning, Panthers, Flames), some of the Oilers’ flaws and throw around some potential fantasy trade offers and targets. Other topics include Alexandre Texier being an early season standout for the Blue Jackets and potential beneficiary of the Patrik Laine trade, Carter Verhaeghe’s value on Florida’s top line with Aleksander Barkov and the fantasy appeal of Kaapo Kahkonen (compared to Vanecek), Joel Eriksson Ek and Jordan Greenway from the Wild.
