This Karlsson is still playing with the “two Joes” (Pavelski and Thornton) and until Logan Couture comes back, he will see some decent power-play time also. His price will start creeping up. On a twelve-game slate, there are more centers as this is the deepest daily fantasy position. Karlsson just represents the best projected pivot play here.


Shane Prince $2,600 – Yes the Ottawa Senators have temporarily vaulted Prince back up into the top six and he responded with a two-goal effort on Wednesday night against the Colorado Avalanche. His price is still very low and if he even sees 5-on-5 time with one of the top two lines that will simply mean more and more chances. It is better than him serving the fourth line blues.


David Savard $3,600 – Please note that this is kind of out of desperation. Savard will not get you a ton of points but at his price point, a few blocks and shots may be all you need.
