Fantasy Hockey Puckcast: Northern Division Preview

Fantasy Hockey Puckcast: Northern Division Preview

This article is part of our Fantasy Hockey Puckcast series.

Due to COVID issues, the NHL has realigned into four divisions: North (Canada), East, West and Central. This week, Statsman and AJ preview the fantasy issues for each team in the North. Specific topics include:

  • Calgary Flames – Jacob Markstrom steps in to bolster the netminding
  • Edmonton Oilers – Leon Draisaitl's flexibility makes this arguably the best forward tandem in the division 
  • Montreal Canadiens – Adding Jake Allen may not drastically lower Carey Price's workload 
  • Ottawa Senators – Despite drafting Tim Stuetzle and acquiring Matt Murray this team is still bad Toronto 
  • Maple Leafs – Jumbo Joe Thornton set for his Maple Leafs debut anchoring a much improved third line Vancouver Canucks – Loui Eriksson continues to eat up all the cap space
  • Winnipeg Jets – Connor Hellebuyck is poised to lead the league in games played

Enjoy either the audio or video versions.  Here is the traditional audio podcast:
