Trading Joe Pavelski
If you’re a Joe Pavelski owner, you might be happily accruing points in your fantasy hockey league as San Jose climbs their way up the Western Conference standings. Pavelski has 5G and 8A in 10 GP this season; he’s third in the league in PPA.
If I were a Joe Pavelski owner, I’d be looking to trade him this weekend. Why?
- Joe Pavelski’s SH% – his current SH% is significantly higher than his career SH% (read more about that here). So, we expect his goal scoring rate to decrease going forward.
- Patrick Marleau’s SH% – Pavelski’s most common line mate is Patrick Marleau. Marleau’s SH% is also significantly higher than his career SH%. When Marleau’s goal scoring rate drops, Pavelski’s assist totals will fall as well.
Pavelski is that rare fantasy hockey player with goal and assist totals that are both currently inflated by luck. His trade value in your fantasy league is at its peak; use this to your advantage while you can.
