After two weeks, Reid and I are back!  We start off with a injury rundown focusing on a bunch of goalies that went down on top of Patrick Eaves being diagnosed with an extremely rare disorder.  Then we talk about teams that have started off very well and whether we’re buying or selling the hot start.  The opposite end of the spectrum is looked at next with how high our panic level is for five teams that started poorly.  We do another buy/sell with regards to individual players before making our picks for the Three Point Challenge.  Be sure to make your pick in the comments section below.  All of that and more on the latest edition of the Razzball Hockey Podcast!

    Hey viz,
    So I’m still tweaking my squad. C.atlinson was just dropped in my league. Would
    You drop
    Any of J.Guemtzel, N.Niederreiter, A.Lee, V.arvidsson to pick him up?
    Also Luongo and Schneider were both dropped. I get some degree of satisfaction out of that being a suffering Canucks fan. Would you pickup either over S.Darling? Or any of the above? I should
    Mention that I am pretty stocked at RW with kucherov/pastrnak. Currently
    Starting Ehlers/Kane at LW.

      @Jj: Hey JJ, hope all is well. I would grab him and drop Nino since Nino is out for at least two more weeks, potentially longer. I’d probably have rather Atkinson anyways so might as well grab the healthy guy.

      I’m probably just holding Darling although Schneider is close. Luongo is out for a while so I’ll ignore him. Schneider is supposed to be back on Friday although that’s not confirmed. Let’s see how Darling looks in his next couple games before making the move. At least your Canucks look like they’re building towards something!

        @Viz:
        I currently have Nino in my IR slot so would have to drop either Lee or 2 players to grab Atkinson/Schneider.
        Tempted to grab both and drop Lee/Nino. What do you think about that? Either that or drop Lee for Atkinson.

          @Jj: Ah okay, makes sense. Hmm, that’s tough but I would lean towards doing both.

    What’s your opinion of Lindholm. Own in 12 team league?

      @ashtray: He’s right on the fringe. I’m okay with the spec add although I’d rather grab Montour if he’s there instead.

      @Fungazi: also, why am I always awaiting moderation? Is it because I created an account with this ID or my comments too scandalous?

        @Fungazi: Good luck! I have no idea about the moderation to be honest, you’d think by now it would instantly post for you. It could be the account, could be a different email if you type one in? That’s not my department, I only approve the comments.

    Couldnt listen to the pod yet but im making my pick for tonight. I pick Benn once again Dallas and especially Benn is on fire against Colorado its not a bad spot 😉

    Other question who of those young guns do you trust the most for the next few weeks and this season ?
    Rantanen,Kempe,Barzal,Tuch
    I’m debating which guy i should promote into my active roster.

      @Saints: I like it, good luck! Umm, can I see how many minutes Kempe gets tonight with Carter done? I’m torn between him and Rantanen. I would lean Rantanen unless Kempe gets a big minutes boost.

        @Viz:
        Thanks 🙂 i got a little lucky with benn beinh involved in all 3 goals. But how could you miss the 3pt ? With those obvious choices of comeau and nieto on the board ? 😀

          @Saints: Eh, that’s what superstars can do. I’ll be sure to consider Matt Nieto in the future haha

      @Maccer: Give me Montour since he’s on the first power play unit.
