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?
Drafting to me is like the 1st time you have sex with someone you’re interested in having a relationship with. As it’s happening, you feel great and you’re certain you’re pushing all the right buttons and making all the right moves. Then immediately after it’s over, you can’t imagine how perfect everything went. You’re a STUD. […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Alright, all 12 of you have been eagerly awaiting my Top 10 (okay okay, all 5 of you). I hate being so corny with the “Top 10”, but cut me some slack my degree is in finance. I originally had a whole diatribe about draft strategy, but I was distracted by the SpikeTV show “Repo Games” (strategery will come later). […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
So the NHL Network is replaying every game from last year’s playoffs. Why you ask? They’re lazy. It’s lazy programming. It’s the equivalent of a sports talk show host doing nothing but 4 hours of listener call ins. Is anyone outside of Boston interested in watching their team fail miserably in the playoffs? I didn’t think so… […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
