The Sabres are hanging in, in the tough East Division, with a 3-3-2 mark...Although he has yet to pick up a point, Cody Eakin has been great at the faceoff dot, winning 70-of-117...Rasmus Dahlin still has only one assist in eight games with a minus-seven rating. I think he is the best young defenseman in the NHL, better than Cale Makar, Quinn Hughes or Miro Heiskanen, but he hasn’t shown it this season...Jeff Skinner has only one assist in eight games...Jack Eichel is off to a strong start with nine points while Victor Olofsson has seven points including five on the power play...Carter Hutton has returned to the Sabres lineup and gives Buffalo adequate goaltending alongside Linus Ullmark.Ottawa Senators

Just look at some of the early tallies for all the goaltenders. Brian Elliott is 11th among fantasy goaltenders for points this season thanks to one start. Carter Hart has negative value.

Life in the NHL can come fast, and less than four years later, the 23-year-old McAvoy is now the face of the Bruins' defense. The Bruins let Chara and Krug walk in free agency, hoping to retool the blue line on the fly. That left McAvoy, the No. 14 pick of the 2016 draft, as the team's obvious No. 1 option (through six games, he's averaging five more minutes per game than any teammate.)Pittsburgh Penguins
