We’re back in full force recapping all of the recent news.  We start off in the Western Conference highlighting the amazing comeback by the Ducks before the Oilers destroyed them in game 6, then discussing the series victory by the Predators.  Afterwards, we hit on the Senators somehow being up 3-2 on the Rangers before talking about the domination of the Capitals even if the scoreboard hasn’t always showed it.  We wrap things up looking at recent news around the league, notably a signing by Vegas, before making our Three Point Challenge picks.  Be sure to make your picks in the comments section below.  All of that and more in the latest edition of the Razzball Hockey Podcast brought to you by SeatGeek!

    You are following the world championships a bit ?
    Have you recognized or seen something there interesting enough for fantasy next year?
    Have you seen Gusev play ?

      @Saints: Sorry for the late response, jury duty has taken almost all of my free time this week. I’ve been limited due to that jury duty but I have seen some. It has solidified my love for Clayton Keller in dynasties going forward and I’ve liked a bunch of the secondary Russian players. Gusev is a player that I like but I acknowledge the downside. There is a lot of upside there but it’s far from certain he ever pans out.

        @Viz:
        Nice Takeaways 🙂 What are those other “secondary Russian players” you liked ?
        I thought Gusev played well enough but wasnt blowing me away. At least he got the shot at the first Powerplay Unit in this team which is somewhat impressive. With Kuznetsov coming over this couldnt be the case anymore in the next few games.

          @Saints:
          Another aspect i saw is that Panarin is way more hyped and used than Kucherov in this Russian Team which is kind of weird for me with Kucherov being the better Player in the NHL

            Ok thanks a lot 🙂
            US Team played a pretty good game and won. I thought the russian guys were pretty pissed about that 🙂

              @Saints: Yeah that was a great performance by USA. Gusev really stood out again but from what I gathered, he doesn’t have much interest in coming back to Tampa unless you give him a one-way contract. Larkin looked great and I could see him being a value next season given how badly he burned people this year. Antipin stood out again, I think the Sabres will have a really nice player.

                Yeah one day after i asked i read an article about gusev and the bad chances off him playing in Tampa. But i dont get why Tampa wouldnt give him that one way contract. I think theres not much to loose for them.

                I will go hard after Antipin in my dynasty. Because he hasnt played in the NHL hes eligible for my dynasty draft and i think i will try to get him in the 2nd or maybe 3rd round (14 Team league). Thoughts about it ? Would you even consider him in the 1st ? .

                  @Saints: I’d have to see who else is available but I would probably wait for the 2nd or 3rd round. He’ll probably be off the radar a bit since he’s 24 already.
