Buy, sell or hold? A stock report on the forwards from FLA, MON, NJ, NYI and NYR.

 

With more than one third of the NHL season complete we are starting to see a clearer picture of how things will ultimately play out. Still, there remain plenty of anomalies throughout the league that require further analysis. Specifically, some players are capable of producing more than their current rate which puts them in “buy low” territory while others are likely playing above their means putting them in “sell high” territory.

Many factors help determine a player’s buy/sell status. Various percentages and advanced stats help paint a more accurate picture of the situation. Also, historical production, ice time and opportunity also play a role. After looking at Boston through Detroit last week, the focus now shifts to Florida, Montreal, New Jersey and the two New York teams.
