Looking Ahead: Week 24

Bob Fisher



Five players to grab for Week 24.

Here are some teams to target and avoid for the next week or two, several players to target that may be available in your league as well as teams that play a light schedule in the upcoming week.


San Jose Sharks = Target


Games: 6 (3H/3A)

Favorable Matchups:

    – vs. Washington

        > 8th worst defensive team

        > 10th worst penalty kill

        > 4th most shots allowed per game

    – @ Edmonton

        > 3rd worst defensive team

        > 6th most shots allowed per game

        > C'mon, it's Edmonton

    – @ Colorado

        > 7th worst penalty kill

        > 5th most shots allowed per game

        > 18 goals allowed in last four games (4.50 GAA)

    – vs. Edmonton

        > See above


The Sharks snapped a six-game winning streak in which they scored 23 goals on Tuesday with a 3-2 loss to the Panthers.  That's a 3.83 goals per game average, almost a whole goal over their season average of 2.94.  I'd expect them to put up something in between those two numbers for the next couple weeks.  So you can count on Logan Couture, Brent Burns, Joe Pavelski,
