Let’s make this short. Get on Twitter and follow me: @Razzballhockey. Have other people do it too. I promise nothing less than my worst effort.
Not alot of anything goin down last night other than Montreal losing to the juggernaut Florida Panthers at home to improve to 1-5-2 on the season. Pathetic. And to rub salt in the wound their leading scorer Max-Pac hurt his shoulder and did not return. What does this all mean? I’m not sure but if I owned Carey Price I’d be worried. Montreal is short a #1 and #3 Defenseman. And an elite Center. Don’t go trading him though unless you can get full value.
Jacob Markstrom – G (Fla): Has only given up 3 Goals in 3 games and last night he had 40 Saves. Get on board now if he’s on your waiver wire (and you need a Goalie). This is the #1 Goalie prospect in the NHL here so it could be lightning in a bottle.
Jaromir Jagr – RW (Phi): Scored his first 2 Goals of the season and added an assist. I’m not sure what to think of Jagr right now. I’d like to say sell high but watching Teemu Selanne the last 2+ years it makes me think old (super talented) guys can still get it done.
Scott Hartnell – LW (Phi): Welcome to the Party Pal! 2 Goals and an Assist last night after 0 Goals and 1 Assist in his first 4 Games. The 6PIM’s is highly disappointing too but I think he’ll catch up quick on that. If he was dropped in your league and you’re short on PIM’s go pick him up now.
Henrik Lundqvist – G (NYR): Supposedly it’s been confirmed he left the game on Saturday with nothing but an equipment defect. Good news for you King Henrik subjects…
Dan Girardi – D (NYR): 3 Assists in the last 3 games and is worth keeping an eye on. If you’re in a deep league you could probably do worse at your #4 D spot.
Mathieu Garon – G (TB): Will get the start tonight against Buffalo. It’s a good test for Garon as Buffalo has scored 3 or more Goals in 6 of their first 7 games. This will go a long way in determining how much longer Garon will be the #1 Goalie in Tampa.
That’s it for now. ‘Twas a slow night on North American Ice Sheets… And don’t forget to follow me on Twitter! @razzballhockey
