Fantasy hockey forecaster: Jan. 15-21


Rare is the week in the NHL when there is an argument to start Timo Meier over Johnny Gaudreau, but here we are.
Bye weeks continue to make the schedule itself the biggest story heading into next week. While last week featured 13 teams on their five-day break from action, this week has more games on tap with only five teams on a bye.
However, the schedule is thrown out of balance even more with some heavy scheduling for some of the teams that are in action. Nine teams are due for a four-game week, while the San Jose Sharks boast the elusive five-game week.
