Marc-Edouard Vlasic took a tough hit Thursday, but returned to the game and scored a huge goal for San Jose. It wasn't enough though, as San Jose lost in the closing minutes of the game. With two points in six games during the playoffs, don't look to Vlasic for big fantasy numbers. (Updated 5/17/13).

Pickles is underrated. His game doesn't stand out in any real way and you rarely hear his name. Such is the life of most super-effective, shutdown defenders. He gets a new partner this year in former Red Wing, Brad Stuart, and this new duo could be one of the best shutdown duos in the Western Conference. Marc-Edouard Vlasic isn't a head hunter; he uses exceptional positioning and a great stick to frustrate his opponents, and he'll probably end up with close to 25 points, too. Oh ya -- don't forget about all those blocked shots. He stopped 171 last year; he could easily approach 200 this time out. (Updated 8/14/12)
