If you haven’t heard the news, then just keep reading!¬† ZING!¬† If you haven’t heard, the Wayne Gretzky of the KHL is set to make his triumphant return to North America.¬† Alexander Radulov was last seen on this continent back in 2007-2008 when he put up 26 Goals and 32 Assists as a 21 year old.¬† And that was playing for the Trotz.¬† Who, as we all know, sucks the offensive life out of every player he’s ever coached.¬† Granted Trotz is still in Nashville, but Radulov is a guy¬† you have to pick up if you¬†need help on the Wing.¬† His numbers in the KHL the last 3 seasons have been RAD, culminating in 2 KHL MVP’s.¬† Admittedly though, winning an MVP in the KHL is like winning a beauty contest in Alabama, so if you do pick him up don’t expect him to carry your team during Championship week.¬† If you’re in a bind however, or are just looking for a weekly spot start, there is no downside to being Rad…
Daniel Sedin – LW (Van):¬† Ruh-roh.¬† Sedin took an elbow to the head on Wednesday and is out tonight with an “undisclosed head injury”¬† (Cough……concussion…..Cough).¬† This is possibly devastating news to the Canucks but then again, who the F cares about them?¬† The only reason this matters is if you own him and are lucky enough to still be in¬†your playoffs (or near the top of your Roto league).¬† If you own him then run and grab:
Mason Raymond – LW/RW (Van):¬† Mayson Ramond (which is how I imagine his name would be spelled if he were a black guy) should get bumped to the top line with¬†the other Sedin¬†and maybe even get a shot on the top Power Play unit.¬† And even if you don’t own Daniel Sedin, Raymond is someone to grab if you need help on the Wing.
Ryan Miller – G (Buf):¬† And Miller gets his 6th Shutout of the season on Wednesday giving him a career high.¬† Yes even in 2009-2010 when he went bonkers he only had 5.¬† I know I find it hard to believe myself.¬† It points to the fact that just like Miller beer, Ryan Miller¬†can make you nauseous…
Eric Staal – C (Car):¬† Hey hey hey what is going on here?!?¬† That is exactly how I feel towards this clown right now.¬† I’ve been telling all you underachievers this year to KEEP UNDERACHIEVING!¬† How else am I supposed to get you at a discount next season?¬† Now his horrible season has been staaled after back-to-back 2 Goal games and I couldn’t be any angrier with him.¬† I’m crossing you off my Christmas list Staal!
Jason Blake – LW (Ana):¬† I’m always amazed when I watch Ducks games at just how fast a skater Blake is.¬† I often find myself going “Hey, who is that super fast guy with the puck?!?”¬† Then my heart sinks when I realize it’s just the same old¬†Jason Blake (AKA Smeagol from Lord of the Rings).¬† Nice Goal on Wednesday, but you still suck.
Okay programming note:¬† In case you haven’t noticed my posts have been few and far between and well, bottom line, my¬†home computer is kaput.¬† I am remedying (remediing? remedie?) the situation but believe me I’m still about 24,000¬†empty beer cans¬†away from¬†the¬†laptop I want.¬† I appreciate the lack of hate messages and in the meantime just bear with me and my sporadic posts por favor!
