The choices are not so obvious this time around for DraftKings selections for Tuesday. Bound to be quite a bit of variance, so perhaps GPP’s is the way to go tonight. My top game to target is Washington at New Jersey followed by Toronto at Nashville, and Columbus at Calgary. Here we go! Continue reading →
Two surprise teams sit atop the top three spots in the Metropolitan Division, the New York Islanders and the Carolina Hurricanes with the Washington Capitals right there at the top with them.

The Columbus Blue Jackets continue to make huge splashes in the trade market as the team announced today that they have acquired goaltender Keith Kinkaid from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for a 2022 fifth round pick. Also today, the Blue Jackets acquired defenseman Adam McQuaid from the New York Rangers in exchange for defenseman Julius Bergman, a 2019 fourth-round pick, and a 2019 seventh round pick.
The Blue Jackets continue to improve upon their trade deadline success as they announced yesterday that they have acquired center Ryan Dzingel, along with a seventh-round pick in 2019 from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for left winger Anthony Duclair, and two second-round picks in 2020 and 2021, respectively.
The Columbus Blue Jackets have been at the forefront of most trade rumors this deadline season due to them holding the hottest commodity on the market: Artemi Panarin.
It seemed to be a matter of when the Jackets traded the 27-year-old winger, not if. However, due to recent events, Columbus seems more content on keeping the pending free agent as their own rental player and going all out on a playoff push.
