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
