C Mike Fisher, OTT

He has never been a major fantasy producer, but Fisher is certainly capable of scoring in bunches, and he’s on a tear right now, with six points in his last three. Rumblings of his inclusion on Canada’s Olympic team should provide plenty of motivation for him to continue to produce.

 

D Sheldon Souray, EDM

I had him listed in the "hold" group the last time around, preaching patience as he returned from injury. He’s looked good, putting up three points in three games, and the Oilers' power play seems to be back on track. See if you can snatch him before his value shoots back up.

 

C Vincent Lecavalier, TB

Lecavalier’s game has started to round into form, and this could be your last chance to trade for him before his value goes sky-high. He’s a fantasy stud and is once again starting to play like one.

 

Hold

C David Krejci, BOS

If you have Krejci, he probably isn’t tradable seeing as his season totals are horrid. He has four points in his last four games, though, and let’s not forget that he was recovering from hip surgery at the start of the season.

With Marc Savard returning and Patrice Bergeron playing well, it will be interesting to see just how Krejci fits into the Bruins' plans.

 

Sell

C Scott Gomez, MTL

Gomez has been supplanted as the Habs’ No. 1 center by Tomas Plekanec, who is on pace for the best season of his career. Add to that the fact that Gomez is currently out with a lower body injury.

If you were banking on Gomez to produce for you at center, you really need to start looking for other options.

 

LW/C Vaclav Prospal, NYR

Prospal has always been a bit of an enigma, following good seasons with bad ones. I just don’t think he can possibly maintain this 85-point pace over the rest of the season. His trade value probably won’t ever be as high as it is now, and if you have him, odds are you didn’t draft him high.

See if you can deal him to address another need.
