Description: Avalanche coach Patrick Roy is shuffling his top two lines for the Saturday night rematch against the Wild.
Insight: Colorado opened the season against Minnesota and lost 5-0, so Roy wants to shakes things up. Matt Duchene will move up to the top line to play with Ryan O'Reilly and Jarome Iginla while Gabriel Landeskog will move down to the second line to skate with Nathan MacKinnon and Alex Tanguay. All six forwards are very good, so for fantasy purposes, it really doesn't matter where Roy places there guys.

Duchene's assists number could continue to rise with newcomer Jarome Iginla now playing on his right wing. Owners could do a lot worse if they decide to draft Duchene within the first five or six rounds.
