Saad and Toews reunite: After cycling through a variety of wingers 

Men's Replica Majestic Luke Appling Grey Road Jersey - #4 MLB Chicago White Sox Cool Base
 this past season (see: Nick Schmaltz, Richard Panik, Marian Hossa, Ryan Hartman, Vinnie Hinostroza, Tyler Motte, Artemi Panarin etc.), Jonathan Toews is probably grateful to have former linemate Brandon Saad back on his left side. While Saad maintained a similar scoring pace in his transition from Chicago to the Columbus Blue Jackets -- in the neighborhood of 0.65 points/game -- Toews experienced a tangible decline in the two seasons since they last played together. The http://www.authenticchicagowhitesox.com/Luke-Appling-Jersey renewed sense of consistency alone should see the Blackhawks' captain settle around the 65-point mark once again. Also, look for Panik to reach a new productive high of 50-ish points if he manages to nail down a spot on the right side of Toews and Saad. Panarin's departure: Saad isn't the only former Blackhawk forging a path back to Chicago. Signed to a one-year deal, veteran Patrick Sharp is tasked with filling the yawning void on Patrick Kane's line following the deal that sent Artemi Panarin to Columbus. While Panarin and Kane forged superb chemistry as an exceptionally productive duo, combining for 346 points over only two seasons, we're not anticipating too great a drop from the Blackhawks' resident sniper. If anything, Sharp is Adidas Matt Calvert Womens Jersey poised for a serious bout of productive recovery. Coming off the most dismal season of his career, a campaign of just 18 points in 48 games, the 35-year-old veteran has nowhere to go but up. Sharp's numbers should recover as long as that recently-repaired hip holds together. Blue-line youth movement: Behind Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook, and Michal Rozsival, the Blackhawks' blue line is bursting with youthful promise -- and inexperience. So while this young lot, which includes former Arizona Coyotes first-rounder Connor Murphy, is worth monitoring this season and beyond, anticipate some growing pains along the way. Keep that in mind in appraising Chicago's No. 1 goalie Corey Crawford as a fantasy asset. Radulov's http://www.authenticcolumbusbluejackets.com/authentic-matt-calvert-jersey role: Hours after the Stars signed Alexander Radulov to a five-year deal in early July, coach Ken Hitchcock was already hinting at skating the former Montreal Canadien on the top line with Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin. If that's how the cookie ultimately crumbles in Texas, look out. Helping form one the most formidable lines in the league (on paper, anyway) should see Radulov easily better last season's NHL renaissance of 54 points in 76 games. However, it won't shock anyone if Hitchcock opts for a more balanced approach, choosing instead to slide Radulov on the right side of center Jason Spezza on the second unit. While that arrangement should also reap handsome dividends for both experienced forwards, the aforementioned Adidas Authentic Matthew O'Connor Youth Jersey top-line trio boasts the more explosive fantasy potential. Bishop brings stability: The Stars are stronger between the pipes now than they have been in years. Through five seasons in Tampa Bay, Ben Bishop racked up a record of 131-64-20 with a 2.28 goals against average and .921 save percentage. Now he's bringing that reliability to a Dallas squad starved for consistency in the crease. Hitchcock's commitment to defensive play, along with the offseason trade for veteran blueliner Marc Methot, will only strengthen Bishop's chance of putting up impressive numbers as Dallas' undisputed No. 1. The 30-year-old should be a top-10 fantasy netminder in most conventional redraft leagues. Potential breakout year for Eriksson Ek: Selected 20th overall in the 2015 draft, Joel Eriksson Ek notched seven points in his first 15 regular-season games in 2016-17 before enjoying http://www.authenticottawasenators.com/authentic-matthew-oconnor-jersey a brief taste of playoff action. Now, the 20-year-old Swede is expected to take the next stride in securing a full-time gig out of camp. However, tucked behind fellow centermen Eric Staal and Mikko Koivu on the Wild's depth chart, a third-line gig opens only if versatile forward Mikael Granlund sticks on the wing. So, barring serious injury down the middle, we're probably a season or two away from seeing Eriksson Ek truly blossom. Dubnyk's workload: Only Edmonton's Cam Talbot and Toronto's Frederik Andersen played more games than Devan Dubnyk in 2016-17. L.A.'s Jonathan Quick solitarily topped Dubnyk in that category the previous season. Ideally for the organization, that trend ends in 2017-18. After the club fizzled out in the first round of the playoffs after racking up 106 points through 82 regular-season games, Minnesota's bench is likely to reign in their No. 1, if at all possible. Perhaps the Wild give Dubnyk a lighter load of 55 games, rather than 65, opening the door for Niklas Svedberg or Alex Stalock to fill in more often. Fantasy managers targeting Dubnyk should adjust their expectations accordingly.
