Daniel Alfredsson, right wing, Ottawa Senators
Alfredsson looked to be having a resurgence in mid-March, as he has three goals with seven points in a six-game span from March 13 to March 23, including the game-winning goal in a game against the Tampa Bay Lightning March 23.
That game marked his first multi-goal effort of the season, and also the last time he lit the lamp. He is scoreless in six straight games with a minus-4 rating. It looks like Father Time has finally caught up to the 40-year-old Swede.
Mathieu Garon, goaltender, Tampa Bay Lightning
It appears the time was now for Garon, as his fantasy prospects were looking up when goaltender Anders Lindback went down to injury. But the team acquired goaltender Ben Bishop from the Ottawa Senators at the NHL Trade Deadline, and Garon's fantasy value went up in smoke yet again.
In daily fantasy leagues, he still has a little fantasy appeal, but he can be jettisoned in all other formats as long as Bishop remains healthy.
Brenden Morrow, left wing, Pittsburgh Penguins
Morrow has been a gritty forward throughout his career, and fantasy owners picked him up once he was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins, speculating a potential turnaround. That turnaround never came into fruition despite playing on a roster rich in talent.
He gets about 13 to 15 minutes per game, but he has managed just one assist with a minus-2 rating in his six games with the Penguins. Even fantasy owners in the deepest of fantasy leagues are making sure not to include Morrow in their plans.
