Fantasy Hockey: Week Eight Waiver Wire Options!



Week eight of the Fantasy Hockey season begins Monday November 23rd, 2015. If your team is underperforming there is still plenty of time to get your roster right and if your team is doing well there isn’t any harm at peeking at the waiver wire……and if you don’t have time I found some widely available gems for you to consider this week.

Teams with four games this week are the Buffalo Sabres, Edmonton Oilers, New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers,, Washington Capitals and Winnipeg Jets.

Teams with two games this week are the San Jose Sharks, Toronto Maple Leafs and the Vancouver Canucks. Everyone else has three games this week.
