While the San Jose Sharks may not be reaching the promised land as a team, the talent at the top of their depth chart gives them lots of value for fantasy owners. Roma Jerseys . Top Picks: There is a changing of the guard in San Jose, where C Logan Couture is emerging as a more productive option ahead of C Joe Thornton. Couture has 84 goals over the last three seasons, tied with Patrick Marleau and Jonathan Toews for seventh spot. At 24, hes just hitting his peak years and could be considered as a low-end No. 1 pivot, though hes outstanding if hes your No. 2. Thornton is hardly put out to pasture. Even in the last three years, when his point totals have declined below the point-per-game threshold, his 141 assists ranks fourth. LW Patrick Marleaus production has tailed off -- last years 0.65 points per game was his second-lowest since 2002. Even so, Marleau has 166 goals since 2008-2009; only Alex Ovechkin and Steven Stamkos (both 208) have more. Consistency is part of the reason for RW Joe Pavelski being so valuable. That, and his ability to play wing and centre. Pavelski has 268 points since 2008-2009, ranking 45th (his 117 goals ranks 32nd), so hes a reasonable low-end No. 1 option on right wing, so long as the Sharks dont move him into the third-line centre role too often. In three seasons with the Sharks, G Antti Niemi ranks seventh with a .919 save percentage and is tied for third with 93 wins. Easy pick as a fantasy starting goaltender, though he might come at a premium price after a career-best season in 2013. Veteran D Dan Boyle played 22:38 per game last season, his lowest ice time since 2003-2004 and his scoring (0.43 ppg) was at his lowest level since 2001-2002. Hes 37-years-old and could be slowing down, or he could be a veteran player who didnt play anywhere during the lockout. As it is, hes San Joses best option on the blueline and probably worth of a No. 2 spot in most fantasy leagues. Value Plays: Theres an ongoing back-and-forth between the Sharks and RW Martin Havlat about whether or not Havlat will be ready to play at the start of the season, following offseason groin surgery. Even if he is, Havlat isnt a stranger to missing time with injuries (though hes been healthier in recent seasons). He has 45 points in 79 games in two years with the Sharks, which is underwhelming, but that production would be enough to generate some fantasy interest, particularly considering his upside, as a seven-time 50-point scorer. Sleepers/Breakthrough: RW Brent Burns may be a sleeper in some respects, because hes moving to right wing for a full season, but hes on everyones radar after last year, so youre going to have to pay full retail prices. With nine goals and 20 points in 24 games on right wing last season, Burns offers the potential for, perhaps, a 30-goal season while skating on the wing with a setup man like Joe Thornton. 25-year-old D Matt Irwin didnt ease his way into the lineup last year, playing more than 19 minutes per game as a rookie, but he acquitted himself well and his bomb from the point gives him power play value. He may not have draft day value in anything but the deepest leagues, but hes one to watch. Rookies: The 17th pick in the 2012 Draft, LW Tomas Hertl is going to have a legitimate chance to crack the Sharks top six forwards after scoring 18 goals in 43 Czech League games last season. Given the quality of San Joses top forwards, thats a great situation for a skilled young forward and one that makes Hertl worth a try as a No. 4 left winger, if only for the upside play.

After two months of mediocrity, perhaps the Washington Nationals have turned the page. Strasburg struck out 11 in seven innings Wednesday night and the Nationals kept the Philadelphia Phillies bats quiet yet again in an 8-4, rain-interrupted win.PORTLAND, OREGON – Vancouver Whitecaps FC claimed their second straight win at the Rose City Invitational on Wednesday, defeating San Jose Earthquakes 2-0 on the strength of a first-half Kenny Miller marker and a late Darren Mattocks penalty. Making his first start of the preseason, Miller put the ‘Caps ahead in the 26th minute and Mattocks added an insurance marker – his second goal in as many matches – to carry the ‘Caps to victory. Recently acquired goalkeeper Paolo Tornaghi looked sharp when called upon, making a pair of saves to earn a clean sheet in his first appearance with Whitecaps FC. After opening the Rose City Invitational with a 5-1 win over Portmore United on Sunday, Whitecaps FC head coach Carl Robinson made a full squad change for Wednesdays tilt with San Jose. Eleven new players – most of the youthful variety – drew into the starting lineup. In addition to Miller, who wore the captains armband and played in an attacking midfielder position behind lone central forward Omar Salgado, one of those players was Christian Dean . Just as he has all preseason, the 20-year-old impressed again on Wednesday – both on and off the ball. Robinson opted to use Dean at left back, which moved Sam Adekugbe up to the left wing. And it was the Homegrown defender who created the first goal of the match in the 26th minute. Adekugbe, who made his way over to the right side of the park, ran onto a perfectly-weighted ball by Salgado and laid it into the box for Miller, who hit it first timee into the back of the net. Andrea Romagnoli Jersey. Aside from the Scotsmans tally, there wasnt much room for either side in the opening 25 minutes. One player who looked lively for the ‘Caps was Salgado, who was very active in the lone central forward position. At the other end of the park, the Quakes had a pair of great first-half opportunities. But a sliding Carlyle Mitchell clearance off the goal line in the 12th minute and a sprawling save by Tornaghi on an Adam Jahn break just moments after Millers marker kept them off the scoresheet. Vancouver made one change at the half, as Residency midfielder Marco Bustos replaced Miller in the attacking midfielder position. Robinsons side got off to an encouraging start after the break and Salgado was once again involved. First, Dean whipped in a low cross to Salgado in the 52nd minute, but the 6-foot-4 strikers first-time effort just missed wide of the near post. A few minutes later, Salgado let loose another left-footed effort from inside the box but this time substitute goalkeeper David Bingham made a sprawling fingertip save to keep the game within reach. Vancouver received a boost around the hour-mark, when speedsters Erik Hurtado, Kekuta Manneh, and Darren Mattocks entered the match. The trio created a number of opportunities and finally, after a late Quakes charge, they found the back of the net. After midfielder Bryce Alderson was hauled down in the box, Mattocks stepped up to the penalty spot and sealed the deal with a cool finish to give Vancouver a 2-0 victory.
