Clear pictures of potential roles this season are beginning to take hold, which means we have to start considering the negative end of the spectrum with some of the players we drafted. Thats right, its time to consider cutting bait with guys you have have invested a pretty penny in during your draft. We spend so much time looking at potential free-agent additions, but the other side of that equation is someone who needs to be dropped from your roster to make room.So who can give up the fantasy ghost and why?Scott Hartnell, LW, Columbus Blue Jackets: The youth movement is in high gear for the Blue Jackets, and Hartnells usage is perhaps the clearest indicator. Down from 15:35 in average ice time per game last season to just 12:33 through eight games this season, Hartnell has only seven shots on goal so far. Hartnells five points belie his real potential if that kind of usage keeps up this season for the veteran.Robby Fabbri, C/LW, St. Louis Blues: With everyone getting healthy for the Blues, Fabbri is being pushed out of a scoring-line role. Hes only played around 14 minutes of ice time the past four games, while he was flirting with more than 19 minutes at times earlier this season. What about his lowly 16 shots on goal through 11 games for a supposed scoring-line player? The harsh reality is that Fabbri doesnt look like a top-six winger, especially not when stacked up against the following list: Vladimir Tarasenko, Jaden Schwartz, Alexander Steen and David Perron. With Nail Yakupov also set to battle Fabbri for the odd look in the top six, its time to get off the Fabbri train in re-draft leagues.Leon Draisaitl, C, Edmonton Oilers: This is a case where we might point you to our Pacific Division fantasy preview prior to the season and tout the eerie accuracy of the trending down tag we applied to Draisaitl. To sum it up, we said Draisaitl would be relegated to the third line, get fewer minutes and lack chemistry with his linemates. Check, check and check. After a solid start in the first two games of the season, heres what hes done in the past eight games: one assist and 10 shots on goal. Injuries in the Oilers top six would make Draisaitl a hot commodity, but unless you can afford to stash him, its time to bail in shallow and standard leagues.Andre Burakovsky, LW/RW, Washington Capitals: The difference between playing in the Capitals top six and bottom six is not just the quality of players dropping significantly, from the likes of Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom. In Burakovskys case, the difference is also about four minutes of ice time per game and a real role on the power play. This talented winger still has breakout potential this season, but with Marcus Johansson on fire and T.J. Oshie also fighting to get back to a scoring line, its fair to set Burakovsky aside for now.Fantasy Forecaster: Nov. 7-13We are starting to see signs that the Fantasy Forecaster formulas have enough data to chew on from this season in the ratings now. How can we tell? Even going against one of the worst possession teams this season Monday in the New York Islanders, the Vancouver Canucks only score a 1 on offense. That sounds about right for a squad with a grand total of 16 goals this season.Only seven teams have the advantageous four-game schedule, while only the Calgary Flames have the disadvantage of just two games on tap. Most importantly, we have our second white whale of the season, begging the question of just how rare and occurrence a five-game week is going to be this season. Read on below to find out where you should dig for your fantasy starters.Download the forecaster chart PDF hereFor those new to the Forecaster chart, here are some explanations: O (offense) and D (defense) matchup ratings are based upon a scale from 1 (poor matchup) to 10 (excellent matchup) and are calculated using a formula that evaluates the teams season-to-date statistics, their performance in home/road games depending on where the game is to be played, as well as their opponents numbers in those categories. The Ratings column lists the cumulative rating from 1-10 of that weeks offensive (O) and defensive (D) matchups.Team notesBoston Bruins: Another five-game week to take advantage of as the Bruins play two back-to-back sets next week around a Thursday matchup. First things first, make sure both David Pastrnak and David Backes are back in your lineups after they sat out this past week with a suspension and elbow injury, respectively. Pastrnak scored a goal in his return to the lineup Thursday, and Backes is eyeing a Saturday return from injury, putting them both on track for a big week. The second move to make in shallow leagues is to check on the availability of Torey Krug. Some owners are giving up on him, but that is entirely too premature. He leads the Bruins in shots on goal and ice time on the power play. He finally earned his first point of the season Thursday, and a busy schedule should help him break out of his funk. Lastly, check the lineup Saturday with Backes back in action, as whoever joins Backes and David Krejci on the second line is a great free-agent target for next week. The leading candidate is Ryan Spooner, but Danton Heinen could surprise with another chance in the top six.Dallas Stars: The Stars are our secret road warriors so far this season, leading the NHL by a healthy margin in shot attempt ratio on the road. Next week has them on a four-game run through western Canada, which also means some pliable defenses, including the Calgary Flames and Winnipeg Jets. The Stars are still plagued by injury up front, but broke out for a six-goal night Thursday. One of next weeks best pickups would be Patrick Eaves, who has struggled on the top line with Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin, but can only struggle there for so long. Benn and Seguin have been struggling in their own right, but busted out with seven combined points Thursday. Eaves is available in almost all ESPN leagues, and has managed 20 shots in his past five games.Goalie notesMike Condon wasnt an ideal fantasy option on the defensively sound Montreal Canadiens last season, so hes not going to be an every-night option for the less defensively sound Ottawa Senators this season. That said, Condon will get some time between the pipes in the near future as Craig Anderson takes personal time to be with his family, and Andrew Hammond is hurt. Shutting out the Canucks on Thursday isnt something to write home about, given their lack of scoring this season, but its a good sign Condon can have spot start value for however long Anderson is away.As something resembling a straight rotation begins to take hold for the Detroit Red Wings, watch the starts next week for who gets the middle one. If Jimmy Howard and Petr Mrazek are trading off the crease, one of them will face two of the top-five scoring offenses in the NHL next week, while the other catches the 30th-ranked Canucks in between the difficult bookends.Peter Budaj remains available in just shy of 75 percent of ESPN leagues and he absolutely shouldnt be. The Los Angeles Kings give him a chance to win and post decent -- if not great -- ratios every time he steps on the ice. The Kings are on a road show through eastern Canada next week with four games, so Budaj has a good shot at earning three wins for the scoring period.We should begin to see more starts from Cam Ward in the ilk of his 30 saves and only two goals allowed from Tuesday night. The Hurricanes are winning the possession battles, posting the sixth-best shot attempts ratio per game this season. This team is doing the right things, the results just arent coming yet.The New York Islanders are getting annihilated in the possession department, sporting the second-worst shot attempts against per game in the NHL this season. Jaroslav Halak or Thomas Greiss? It doesnt really matter if the Isles keep allowing a whopping 49.7 shot attempts per game, nobody in this crease will have much fantasy value.Player notesOne door closes, another opens. Scott Wilson was sent to the Pittsburgh Penguins third line Thursday, with Carl Hagelin replacing him on the top line with Sidney Crosby. Hagelin, who should be on waivers right now in your league after a horrible start, finished at plus-2 on the night.The San Jose Sharks lines were all over the place Thursday, but one obvious takeaway was that Mikkel Boedker wasnt in the mix for the top line anymore. Melker Karlsson spent most of the first two periods with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski, while Tomas Hertl was there for most of the third as the Sharks shortened the bench. We were giving Boedker a pass because he was still playing on the top line, but its hard to keep doing that now.In their third game back, Henrik Zetterberg, Tomas Tatar and Justin Abdelkader finally combined on a goal Wednesday. This line was the Red Wings best trio last season and should get at least a little more time to re-establish chemistry. Green World Cup Colombia Jerseys . Rob Manfred, baseballs chief operating officer, testified last week during the grievance filed by the players union to overturn Rodriguezs 211-game suspension. A person familiar with the hearing, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press on Saturday that Manfred testified the sport wasnt concerned whether Bosch distributed performance-enhancing drugs to minors because MLBs interest was his relationship with players under investigation. Colombia Yimmi Chara World Cup Jersey . -- Aldon Smith believes he is on the path to being sober for good. http://www.cheapworldcupcolombiajerseys.com/colombia-davinson-sanchez-world-cup-jersey/ . Booth picked up 65 caps after making her national team debut in 2002 at the age of 17. She most recently played for Sky Blue FC of the National Womens Soccer League. "It just felt like it was my time to move on," she said in a phone interview from her hometown of Burlington, Ont. Colombia Teofilo Gutierrez World Cup Jersey .Y. - Jerome Samson scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the St. Colombia Ivan Arboleda World Cup Jersey . "Theyve both been real good," said Babcock. "Havent changed our minds." A decision has seemingly been made - Sundays Group B-deciding tilt against Finland ahead - but it could not have been an easy one. Price opened the tournament with a sturdy 19-save performance against the Norwegians, yielding just one goal. James Sutherland, the Cricket Australia chief executive, has narrowed his focus on high performance failings as a reason for the national teams dire recent displays in Asian Test matches, adding scrutiny to the roles of the team performance manager Pat Howard and the selection panel.In response to repeated questioning about Australias three-nil hiding at the hands of an unfancied Sri Lanka in their recent Test series - a result that cost Steven Smiths side their No. 1 ranking in the longest format - Sutherlands rhetoric has shifted from patience to a more urgent tone.His latest words, on the day CA announced an additional $500,000 in funding for the Growing Cricket for Girls fund, followed a raft of criticism from former players, including the ex-CA Board director Mathew Hayden and the recently retired captain Michael Clarke, about the decision to rest Smith from the latter limited overs portion of the Sri Lanka tour. While Sutherland defended that decision as a matter of necessity, he was more questioning of how Australias players did not appear to be adding the requisite adaptability to their games.Are some of the fundamental things that we are doing to prepare our players to perform well and be highy competitive in subcontinental conditions passing the test? Sutherland told The Sydney Morning Herald. I think thats where the review gets a little bit more meaty and challenging and more fundamental, going right down into questioning our high-performance systems as well.To be a bonafide international cricketer in thiis day and age, you need to be able to adapt to conditions in Australia, conditions in England, conditions in the subcontinent .dddddddddddd.. wherever you play, he said. And that adaptability is something that needs to be reviewed because some are adapting and some arent.Speaking about the longer term, Sutherland stated that Australian cricket had to reach a point where in 10 years time when we tour India there is a pool of hundreds of players that could be on that tour. These words will not be lost on Howard, out of contract next year, or the selection chairman Rod Marsh, also with a deal due to expire in 2017. CA recently hired Graham Manou to manage the junior talent pathway.On the subject of Smith, Sutherland described the captains imposed rest as a product of the games increasingly cluttered schedule. Its obviously far more preferable for him to stay and see that through, he said, but the nature of international cricket today and the calendar is that at times we need to make decisions that are in the best interests of the individual and the team.In coming weeks at the next round of ICC meetings, Sutherland will re-embark on a task he has championed for some time - that of changing crickets global structures to allow more room between matches, and greater context so each contest has an easily understandable reason for existing, and by extension greater value for fans and broadcasters.
