Fantasy hockey mailbag: Pettersson's potential, MacKinnon's scoring and buy/sell candidates

Here's the thing about fantasy sports… It's just like your vivid, nightly dreams in that people are maybe interested in hearing about them for 5-10 seconds. Tops. After that, the eyes glaze over and the fidgeting begins. 

It sucks, but literally, people care just as little about your dream of a giant lobster who recited Shakespeare as they do about your most recent waiver wire pickup, the unfortunate injury to the star you just traded for or how you're en route to a third straight championship and legendary status amongst your group of ramshackle comrades.

Except for me. I care. At least for today anyway.

The time had come for me to open up the mentions and request as many fantasy hockey questions as humanly possible. I've waded through the requests and landed on several ones that I hope will serve to provide insight and analysis not only to the question poser but to everyone reading. 

And so, without further adieu, let's dive into the questions.
