Nedeljkovic and Greiss, fantasy hockey ‘persona non grata’

ESPN’s Victoria Mataiash examines the fantasy hockey impact made by the past week’s worth of trades and free agency moves, and she suggests that fantasy hockey poolies avoid the Red Wings’ goaltenders at all costs:

Alex Nedeljkovic, G, Detroit Red Wings: This is a tough one. Small sample size, sure, but Nedeljkovic still presents as a gifted and skilled NHL goaltender capable of shouldering a heavy workload. No 20-plus gamer bettered his league-leading 1.90 GAA and .932 SV% for Carolina in 2020-21. But the rebuilding Red Wings remain a ways from winning more games than they lose. Thomas Greiss ain’t no slouch either and he only won eight of 34 appearances this past season. Anyone starting in Detroit’s crease should be avoided in fantasy leagues where victories carry significant weight. For now.
