A little added rest will be the norm in the preseason before the long grueling season starts and time off the ice is less affordable.

2014 Draft Prep: Busts for Draft Day
Not every player is created equally. That also goes for expectations placed upon them. Dan Pennucci examines those he thinks are lining up to disappoint Fantasy owners.
|Many have derided Thomas Vanek's postseason performance in Montreal or even his season totals, crying out that Vanek is in decline. If anyone in your league believes that, all the better for you. Many people will have been fooled by Vanek's so-called decline, but not you. His 2013-14 was nothing but exhausting -- he switched teams twice and played in the Olympics, all in the same season. Who wouldn't be tired by the end of the year? And sure, his slow feet were exposed playing in Montreal. But Vanek will skate on one of the best lines of his career (outside John Tavares, of course) and Minnesota's top six is deep enough that even as line shuffling takes place, he'll be playing with playmakers like Mikael Granlund, Mikko Koivu, Jason Pominville and Zach Parise. Vanek stands to have a solid year in his new home and come close to 30 goals and 70 points. Don't draft him too high, but don't shy away from him when his time comes in your draft, either.
