The Shot Dude: Best Things Come in Pairs

What is the old saying?

Sometimes the best things come to those who wait.

Well, your favorite Shot Dude agrees!

NHL schedule 8 nov 2015

The way to be a winner in your daily fantasy games today is by taking pairs of players from a few teams to maximize your team's score.

Here's who I think gives you the greatest shot at ca$hing in with FanDuel prices listed:

My pair from Dallas: Forward Jason Spezza ($6400) and defenseman John Klingberg ($5800).

I like that these two mid-range priced dudes who both play on the Stars' No 1 power play unit. Their opponent today, the Detroit Red Wings, ranks 10th in the NHL in commiting minor penalties, so this Dallas special team should be quite busy. Spezza has launched 40 shots and scored 5 goals, while Klingberg has 2 goals on 23 shots with 11 assists to date.

My pair from the New York Islanders: Forward Anders Lee ($5900) and  defensemen Nick Leddy ($4800).

I'm sticking with the pair of power players and project first place for you. Say that quickly ten timest! Isles' first liners Lee and Leddy have combined to take 50 shots this season and produced 6 points during their power play time. Boston won't enjoy today's trip to New York because of the havoc these two will cause.

My pair from New Jersey: Forward Michael Cammalleri ($6700) and goaltender Cory Schneider ($8800).

If we were giving out team MVPs for play so far, the Devils would have a tie between these two. Cammalleri has taken the most shots (37), scored 4 goals, and assisted on 8 others. He's the leader of the team's top even-strength and power play units while averaging over 20 minutes of ice time per contest. Of New Jersey's 13 games, Schneider has started 11 of them, winning 7. He has a strong .923 save percentage and gets to face a pooped out Vancouver team that just played up in Buffalo yesterday.

Your Shot Dude was happy to pare down some pairs of players that will help you claim victory in your NHL fantasy matchups.

As always, you can't win unless you take your best shot!
