Back on October 19 I wrote this about Max Pacioretty:¬†“How the Frankenstein is this guy only 17% owned in Yahoo leagues?¬† Concussion concerns aside, 5 Points in 5 Games people!¬† He‚Äôs a Left Winger!¬† Go pick him up before I talk about him again tomorrow‚Ä¶”¬† And that’s¬† me quoting me! (and copying Grey).¬†¬†Well since then his ownership has only gone up 4%.¬† WTF?¬†¬†Are people that set at Left Wing?¬† Hopefully his 2 Goals and¬†1 Assist last night will lead to proper ownership levels because he’s¬†already a huge part of the Canadian offense.¬† Just cross your fingers that some big mean Defenseman doesn’t concuss him again, cuz that could be the end of his season…
Ilya Bryzgalov – G (Phi):¬† It’s not time to panic yet, but¬†if you’re an owner¬†I’d at least be looking up the location of the¬†nearest tall bridge…¬† Last night against the coldest team in the NHL Breezy gave up 5 Goals on 28 Shots.¬† That’s now 3 or more Goals allowed in each of his last 5 games.¬† That’s bad if your name is Steve Mason, let alone Bryzgalov.¬† If you own¬†Ilya (or if you just need a Goalie) I would¬†pick up Bobrovsky.¬† He’s definately getting the start tonight against Winnipeg and don’t be surprised if he stays in net until his next loss.
TJ Galiardi – LW (Col):¬† I had this mexican drink as a sleeper in the preseason.¬† Turns out he likes sleeping more than actually playing hockey.¬† With 3rd and 4th line minutes becoming the norm it’s definately time to drop him (if for some reason you’re still hanging on)
Rene Bourque – LW/RW (Cgy):¬† You know a guy is streaky when the announcers from the Colorado Avalanche point it out during the game.¬† Hang on and enjoy the ride right now cuz it’ll get bumpy soon.
Olli Jokinen – C (Cgy):¬† The Assist last night was on a BS empty netter.¬† Still 6 points in 8 games isn’t nothing.¬† I’m not buyin it though because……………….. wait for it……………… ¬†Olli is a JOKinen!
Brian Elliott – G (Stl):¬† Granted the Canucks look awful right now, but a Shutout is a Shutout.¬† On top of that Halak has looked awful all season.¬† Awful awful awful.¬† Elliott is the starter in St Louis for the time being, so if you need¬†a filler¬†you know what to do.
Kevin Shattenkirk – D (Stl):¬† 2 Assists last night gives him 5 points in 9 games and I think he can keep up that pace.¬† Which means 40+ if he stays healthy.¬† Now if only he¬†would start producing on the¬†Power Play…
Bobby Ryan – LW (Ana):¬† Only 2 Goals and 0 Power Play Points.¬† He’s getting traded alot right now and I definately put him in the “buy low” category.¬† Just don’t go nuts cuz Ryan is still relegated to the 2nd power play unit.
Well there you go on yet another short schedule night.¬† Now shoot me your Q’s and I’ll give you my A’s…¬†Seacrest OUT!
