The 2020-21 NHL season is less than a month old and we have already been treated to electric performances and a blockbuster trade. All of that means fantasy managers have had to paid even closer attention to the daily pulse of the league. Here at Rotoworld, we're providing up-to-date information with the latest injury news and fantasy insight, as well as offering premium tools to help give you an edge over the competition.

As we can see, Theodore and Connor have similar fantasy numbers to this point in the season. Though Theodore has the slight edge in fantasy points to date, managers trading him would be betting on Patrik Laine's departure to create more goal-scoring opportunities for Connor, who so far has four goals and five assists. Having this type of information can help build your roster decision-making skills, highlighting the risks and benefits of any potential deal.
