2023-24 Fantasy Hockey Week 11 Waiver Wire

Players to Consider/Drop For Your Squad(s)

2022-23 Fantasy Hockey Week 4 Unsustainable Players

I think it's safe to say we won't see any $700 million contracts like Shohei Ohtani's handed out in hockey ever. With deals in all other sports getting severely out of hand, perhaps salary caps need to be introduced across the board.  Speaking of free agents, let's look at some of my 2023-24 Fantasy Hockey Week 11 Waiver Wire plays.

We are now a third of the way through the season, making waiver wire decisions key.

I hope Ryan Strome's children never learn to read for that slimy knee-on-knee to Kyle Connor. I had to do a double-take to make sure it wasn't Brad Marchand out there in an Anaheim uniform. No suspension being handed down for that was shameful on the league's part.

Week 11 sees every single team play at least three games. Only two have four, the Detroit Red Wings and the Minnesota Wild. Michigan's squad along with the Winnipeg Jets have three games scheduled for off nights.

I also want to reiterate that my drop considerations are for redraft leagues. Additionally, I never consider plus/minus. Do yourself a favor and make your commissioner scrap the asinine category.

Oliver Bjorkstrand, RW, Seattle Kraken (38% rostered)

The 28-year-old Danish sniper is quietly pacing for a career year with 25 points through 32 games played. Although he plays third line and PP2, the Seattle Kraken are a relatively deep four-line team comprised of several top-nine forwards.

Possessing a phenomenal shot, he's a candidate year in and year out to finally pop off. Now in his late twenties, perhaps he's taking that next step with 60 points entirely plausible.

Yegor Sharangovich, C/LW, Calgary Flames (23% rostered)

A few weeks back I mentioned him in my drops section, ending off with suggesting you check back in as he tends to start slow.

Well, the sluggish beginning is over with the former New Jersey Devil percolating. Playing top line and PP1, he has thirteen points over the past thirteen games. His schedule isn't the best but he's too hot to ignore right now.

Marco Rossi, C, Minnesota Wild (9% rostered)

John Hynes behind the bench in St. Paul has seemingly revitalized Matt Boldy. It's also benefiting the young Austrian center who's pacing for 30 goals.

Their new bench boss is well known for spreading ice time out evenly across all four lines so don't expect to see any nights of 20 minutes played. Centering line two and PP2 makes him worth a look coupled with their schedule.

Pyotr Kochetkov, G, Carolina Hurricanes (50% rostered)

This will be the last time I tell you to get on board. If you've read my articles throughout the year, you'll see this is the third time I'm suggesting you add him. With Antti Raanta put through waivers, it's apparent even if he clears that this is now the young Russian's net.

The Hurricanes are seemingly not as strong of a squad as in years past but I still believe they will improve as the season progresses. Teams that start off mediocre of their caliber tend to pick it up.

Drops

Ville Husso, G, Detroit Red Wings

I have a wealth of experience with this porous dumpster fire having drafted him. Even with Alex Lyon potentially missing time, you should cut ties. Use that roster spot for streaming and don't look back.

Erik Gustafsson, D, New York Rangers

A great fallback option for the team but this is Adam Fox's blueline and top powerplay when healthy.

Patrik Laine, C/LW/RW, Columbus Blue Jackets

I had him written in for this section even before the broken clavicle. He possesses all the tools for greatness but never attains it. A certified band-aid boy, you're better off looking elsewhere.
