We have one game today for NHL DFS action and it features two teams with a ton of value. We find ourselves in a Game 7, where just about anything can happen with the craziness of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Dallas Stars are heavy favorites to win, but Seattle could cause *another* upset. Will this be the year the two most recent expansion teams face off in the Conference Finals?

If you played the Saturday Showdown slate, then the Playbook may look very similar to that one and it’s for a good reason. We aren’t going to reinvent the wheel tonight in a Game 7. We know what team is *expected* to win, but there is more than enough value on both sides to go around.

The one main change we are making from Saturday is we aren’t playing a goalie in the CPT spot. This series have been filled with goals and I am done with getting burned by Jake Oettinger. The Seattle Kraken have an elite offense and we need to respect that. I’ll have either Joe Pavelski or Yanni Gourde in that spot because I think both players are likely to have a big night. 

As for the rest of my lineup, It would be wise to target a superstar. Jason Robertson is the guy you’ll want to own, even if he’s struggled to find the back of the net in the playoffs. I’ll also look to lean on veteran guys who have been here before. Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin are two more names that you should consider when building your lineup. If you want to be different, Miro Heiskanen is someone to really consider. He may be a defenseman, but he can contribute offensive and block a couple of shots.

On the Seattle side, Jared McCann and Tye Kartye are my two favorite options. Both come in at different price points, so you can easily fit them into your lineup. It’s hard to know where the offensive is going to come from, but both players have done a good job of generating score chances and we know that the Kraken can really shoot the puck. I don’t know how much more exposure I’ll want to the visiting team, but I could get behind someone like Eeli Tolvanen, who is $5400 on DraftKings and is skating on a very good third line. He’s not Morgan Geekie cheap, but he still has a better chance of finding the scoresheet.
