NHL Waiver Wire: Pickups of the Week

NHL Waiver Wire: Pickups of the Week

This article is part of our NHL Waiver Wire series.

Sundays are usually exciting when it comes to weekly fantasy matchups, but it's tough to follow the late games when you're old and can't stay awake past 9 p.m. That's where the excited early Monday boxscore check comes in to announce your fate. Did your wishing help? Or did your opponent eke out a win thanks to a last-second goal/assist/save/hit/non-appearance?

Hoping won't bring you success. It's the regular planning and detail/media attention that provide a solid base. A random guess may eventually stick or a missed move could somehow turn the tide, but your best chance to do well is to be aware of what's going on and apply that to your teams.

And what better way to prepare than with the latest player news on RotoWire and our hockey content to set your lineups and manage your rosters.
