Levine covers baseball, basketball and hockey for RotoWire. In addition to his column writing, he's the master of the MLB and NHL cheatsheets. In his spare time, he roots for the Mets.

This week’s article includes a speedy Vegas forward, a hot young winger in Music City, a pair of backup goalies rolling, Colorado’s top center down and Detroit’s No. 1 goalie in a slump.
