Matt Cubeta - NHL.com Fantasy Insider

Now that Thanksgiving has ended here in the United States, it's time for everyone to prepare for the holiday shopping spree that is Black Friday. And what better way to tie this crazy day into fantasy hockey than to give you a list of some of the best fantasy bargains.

I'll start by looking at three players (a forward, defenseman and goalie) that have provided the best bang for their buck to this point in the 2015-16 season, and then I'll give you three players (all available in at least 70 percent of Yahoo fantasy leagues) that can be potential bargains for the remainder of this season.

As the 2015-16 NHL season enters its second quarter, some may feel trends have been firmly established.

Not so.

A short 20-game sample can fool many into thinking what they are seeing is reality, whereas oftentimes it is simply an indication of a team or player either needing some time to warm up, or some time to come back to earth.

Here, then, are 12 bold predictions of what is absolutely guaranteed to happen in the second quarter of this season. You can take these to the bank. They are guaranteed.

Super 16: West teams have faced longer road trips

Friday, 11.27.2015 / 3:00 AM / Super 16: NHL Power Rankings

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

By in large, the challenge of playing and making the Stanley Cup Playoffs in the Western Conference is considered to be greater than playing and making it in the Eastern Conference because of the strain of long travel created by the considerable distance between cities.

The Eastern Conference may have more competition (two more teams), but travel in the Western Conference literally creates a longer road to the playoffs.

The stress of playing in the West has been magnified a quarter of the way through this season by the duration of the road trips and the amount of games outside of the Central, Mountain and Pacific time zones the majority of the teams have already completed or are currently going through.

Eight of 14 teams in the Western Conference have already had road trips of five games or longer, including recently completed seven-game trips by the Colorado Avalanche (4-3-0) and Vancouver Canucks (1-4-2), and the perfect six-game trip by the San Jose Sharks (6-0-0).

New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault put the pressure on goalie Henrik Lundqvist in their exit meeting after last season by telling him to be prepared to be better at the start of the season. It was a message based on Lundqvist's recent history of starting poorly.

Lundqvist has done better than just respond to Vigneault; he's put himself on pace to win the Hart Trophy as the NHL's most valuable player. He is off to arguably the best start of his 11-season career with 12 wins, a 1.94 goals-against average and .939 save percentage through 18 games.
