Need some help with your fantasy hockey team?  You’ve come to the right place.  Try these hot players on for size. 

Center
Brandon Dubinsky
- Last year Dubinsky had 40 points in 82 games (0.49/gm). He has 9 points (3 Goals, 6 Assists) in his first 9 games to start the season.  He has three games with a pair of assists and two three-point games already.  He’s a good bargain in Sporting News’ Salary Cap Hockey at $3.21M.

Winger
Aaron Voros 
 - Dubinsky’s linemate Voros is off to a fast start as well.  After scoring 14 points in 55 games last year (0.25), he also has 9 points (5 Goals, 4 Assists) in the Rangers’ first 9 games.   Voros has a pair of 2 Goal games already.  He’s an exceptional value at $1.64M.

Defenseman
Shea Weber  - Nashville’s Weber is off to a hot start with 7 points (3 Goals, 4 Assists) in 6 games (1.17).  He had 20 points in 54 games (0.37) and 40 in 79 games (0.51) in 2006.  His four-point effort against Columbus helped him get off to the hot start.  He’s a good value at $2.50M.

Goalie
Stephen Valiquette  - Another Ranger finds his way into the Blue Line Specials.  This time it’s their backup Goalid Stephen Valiquette.  He has been between the pipes twice this year and has a 2-0 record, a 1.45 GAA, and a 0.939 Save Percentaage.  He is the 15th highest scoring Goalie in the Sporting News Salary Cap league despite having only two starts.  His $3.27M figure makes him a great bargain.
