So the next few days will be all about wing-men, and no I’m not talking about this kind. (And speaking of that movie, how was there never a sequel? If it had been made 5 years ago is there any doubt it would have turned into a trilogy at least? “We’ve got a hit! It made money! […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The wingers are all that’s left of the rankings but today I’m gonna do an NHL news hit. There’s nothing funny about what happened in Russia yesterday (for those of you living under a rock here you go). All I’ll say is that it’s a damn shame and on a personal note I probably watched […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
So this time of year is the calm before the storm in the sports world. Sure we’ve had preseason NFL and a few important college football games, but the preseason sucks in the NFL and I went to Cal State Fullerton – I don’t give a flying F about college football. But a month from […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
So before I wrote this post I went back and looked at the Top 30 and realized 13 of the 30 are Centers. At first I questioned my own logic for ranking players, but then I rationalized that (almost always) the guys with the most talent and playmaking ability end up as top line Centers. Every player […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Penalty Minutes are a somewhat controversial category in fantasy hockey, but I love it. In fact I won’t ever play in a league that doesn’t count it. Fighters (tough guys) are the gladiators of the NHL. It’s up to them to protect the franchise player and it’s up to them to light a spark in lopsided games. […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’ve already voiced my feelings about Defenseman, which means many of these lower-tier guys will be drafted by me. I like some more than others, but for the most part I wouldn’t have a problem with any of these D-men. I like to have a list of 10-15 guys who I think will be available […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
You wanna know a big problem with the NHL that nobody talks about? 2 intermissions. Sports fans can really only tolerate 1 major stoppage during a 3 hour event before they lose interest. The easy solution is to just split every game into two 30 minute halves, but a hockey rink doesn’t work that way. By minute 22 or 23 […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
“The D will set you free!” Hey thanks Vic the Brick! Do you have anything else to add or is that pretty much the range of your analytic abilities? “You must play like your hair is on fire!” Yeah that might be a problem on the ice. “You are like the bamboo, you bend but…” […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Tuuka Rask (who looks like the love child of Cindy Lou Who and the Grinch) was all the rage going into last year’s draft. He took over for an injured Tim Thomas the previous season and went donkey-kong crazy with a 1.97GAA, .931SV%, 5 Shutouts and a 22-12 record (He won 20 games! He should’ve won the Cy […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Goalies! As I intimated in the Strategery post there are alot of good goaltenders out there. Different leagues start drafting Goalies at different times, so the more you know about your league the better. If you forgot the Top 6 goalies, go here and scroll down slowly, they’re in there. There will be more about Goalies […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
