Why Do You Trust Mike Knuble?

Mike Knuble was held scoreless for the tenth time in his last thirteen games Saturday against the Kings.

Analysis: Knuble has only 22 points in 52 games this year after 53 points in just 69 games last year. His age, 38, has apparently caught up to him. This is his worst season in ten years and he’s still owned in over sixty percent of fantasy leagues. Knuble’s ice time and power play minutes have dropped a bit over the past few weeks and don’t expect anything more than he’s shown this year. Knuble is minus 5 in his current thirteen game three point stretch and it’s time to cut your losses and move on.

Projection: Knuble isn’t worth keeping unless you’re in a deeper league where I would expect a maximum of ten points in his remaining games. Consider the red hot Michael Grabner who has 6 goals his last four games at right wing instead of Knuble.
