Hey everyone!  Reid and I rundown the latest news around the NHL over the last 5 days.  That includes some injuries (thankfully less than there has been), Montreal’s thrashing of the Avalanche, Jakub Voracek‘s back to back four points, Brayden Schenn‘s hat trick, the potential revival of Evgeny KuznetsovPatrik Laine‘s own goal and much more!  Then we do an extensive breakdown on goaltending.  We look at the red hot Antti Raanta before we rank the top 10 goalies for the rest of the season.  From there, we each give goalies that we are looking to buy low on and others that are sell high candidates.  As always, we wrap things up with the Three Point Challenge.  All of that and more on the newest edition of the Razzball Hockey Podcast!

Edit: The December RCL update can be read here.

Three Point Challenge Standings:

Tuesday Streamers:

Teuvo Teravainen (11.2%) – The minutes are peaking, he has three points in the last three games and Carolina hosts the Canucks.  Perfect spot for Teravainen to build on his recent success.

Martin Hanzal (14.2%) – Yes, Arizona is a smushmortion at the moment but Detroit isn’t exactly a powerhouse.  Hanzal’s minutes are massive with the roster thinning out and there’s PIM upside here along with the points.

Drake Caggiula (2.7%) – He looked like he’s getting a fair number of shifts with McJesus and honestly, that’s enough to stream Caggiula for me.

    I’ve joined the No Halftime league but never see any of the challenges. Am I doing something wrong?

      @Rob: Well the only challenges that end up going to the group are from Reid and myself which we usually take each other. There should be a Getzlaf vs. Skinner up at the moment. You can post any of your own as well, either in the group or outside of it.

        @Viz:

        Got it.

        I’d be in for the five if I could go getzlaf. Too bad you can’t add your picks both ways for gen pop to bet on. More like we’re betting for youbor Reid

          @Rob: You can challenge everyone, you just need to post it outside of the group or click public on the bottom when you post it.

    Niemi hasn’t played in a while. Can I cut him for a streaming spot?

      @Scott: Yeah I would feel pretty safe doing so.

    I will pick jaden Schwartz for 3! I like that he is playing with vlad and fabbrI. Also someone with the same name as will smith’s son is bound to be successful.. jadens ftw

      @Shitwolf: Agree, he’s definitely in a good spot and given how up and down Nashville is, I like the pick. Good luck!

    I’m going Jeff Skinner. With as many shots as he puts out, there’s gotta be some going in on an awful Canucks D.

      @Scott: Definitely a good spot as Reid broke down on the podcast; good luck!

    Thanks,
    I think you would start Darling tonight instead of Lehtonen wouldnt you ?

    • Saints says:

      @Saints:
      And what do you think about Nesterov.
      He was scratched (?) 3 games came back the last one and had a pretty amazing game (counting hits and blocks)

      • Viz

        Viz says:

        @Saints: No problem! Yeah, I’d go with Darling and with Stralman back, Nesterov’s value has significantly diminished. Outside of deep leagues, I’d let him go.

          @Viz:
          Thank you 🙂 Your Thoughts on Pesce and Auvitu ?

          • Viz

            Viz says:
            (link)

            @Saints: I don’t think there’s enough there for either of them in 12’ers right now. With Faulk back, Pesce’s role has diminished and Auvitu is being used less by the Devils lately as well.
