The Minnesota Wild finished under .500 at the end of this past season. They ranked 27th in the Powerplay and dead last in both Goals Per Game and team name. Things looked glum, but Minnesota just went Minnepop, and not because they say pop instead of soda. The hockey future is bright up in the Twin […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The National Hockey League draft came and went while I was on vacation, but I heard no one took my future boyfriend Mikhail Grigorenko until the 12th pick. What? Oh, I’m sorry, I guess the Islanders don’t need offense, my bad. Well, to be fair to the fake New York, they need everything. Don’t worry, there’s only […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Oilers continue to fill themselves with talent. After seemingly every other team wasted their first round draft pick on Defense, Edmonton went ahead and signed the most sought after free agent, the soon to be 22 year old Justin Schultz. At 6′ and 185 lbs, Schultz is the rare and beautiful offensive defenseman. He […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Today is the start of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, so maybe now would be a good time to discuss another prospect? Sure! As long time readers of this blog (Hello inmates at Rockview State Correctional Institution, keep those letters coming!) know, I dislike Defensemen (for fantasy purposes) the same way Hitler avoided drafting Jews […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Tall and thin, Mikhail Grigorenko is an 18 year old stud from Khabarovsk, Russia. He is perhaps too young for someone like me to project, although Patrick Roy (yes, that Patrick Roy) traded up to grab him for the Quebec Remparts in the Import Draft last summer. He rewarded Roy and the Remparts with 85 points in […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Detroit Red Wings just obtained Andrew Murray, a 32 year old with 40 points and -7 rating in 220 career games. Whoo! Okay, so, the real meat of this trade was that Detroit sent Brad Stuart to San Jose in exchange for a 2014 pick. There’s no point in speculating about a pick that […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Alexander Semin becomes a free agent this year, but you shouldn’t care. Even presuming the 28 year old doesn’t return to Mother Russia, Semin has left a stain on fantasy stats for two years running. The conclusion of this season marked back to back 54 point campaigns, and this time around he played 17 more […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s always interesting to take a look at players who exceeded expectations with career years (or even returning to past glory). Here’s three of ’em: Radim Vrbata – In 77 games, he scored 35 goals (8 above his prior career high), tallied 27 assists and put up a +24 (17 above his prior career high). His […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I recently marked the occasion when I escaped from my mother’s womb (by which I mean built in a factory). This year it’s a milestone: I turned 30, which means hippies can no longer trust me. You may not trust me, either, because that Fantasy Hockey Degree from Razzball University is actually a phony. Nevertheless, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Telling you about Russian phenom Nail Yakupov is like telling you about Sidney Crosby in 2004. If you know anything about hockey, chances are you know about this 18 year old stud from Nizhnekamsk, Russia (yes, he was born after the fall of the Soviet Union…feel old?). Well, regardless, I’m going to tell you a little […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
