Fantasy Hockey Mailbag: Surprising Teams; Kaprizov; Avalanche Goalies; Blackwood; Byfield; Rossi & More

Rick Roos


Welcome back to another edition of the Roos Lets Loose monthly mailbag, where I answer your fantasy hockey questions by giving advice that should be useful to all poolies even if they don't own the specific players being discussed. As a reminder, if you want your fantasy hockey question(s) answered in the next mailbag, check out the end of the column, where I explain the ways to get it/them to me as well as the details you should provide when sending. The earlier you send a question the more likely it is to be included in the mailbag, and the deeper dive I can provide with my reply.

Question #1 (from Dwayne)

My team has been in an extended rebuild since I entered this league 2+ seasons ago. The league is a dynasty 10 team, H2H with categories of G, A, Pts, +/-, PPP, SOG, HIT, BLK, W, GAA, SV and SV%. Rosters are adjustable daily with 3C, 6W, 4D and 2G active, plus 5 Bench, 7 minors (minors are eligible to move to the active roster; if they are minors at the beginning of the season, they remain so for the entire season), and an IR of up to 3 players. As I write this, I have the following roster:

C – Dylan Cozens, Mason McTavish (M=minors eligible), Vincent Trocheck, Marco Rossi (M), Alex Newhook (M), Cole Sillinger (M)

W – Jesper Bratt, Roope Hintz (also C eligible), Alexander Holtz (M), Kirill Kaprizov, Clayton Keller, Jack Quinn (M),
