My Fantasy Hockey Curse

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
So, hubby is running a Yahoo Fantasy NHL league again this year, and he wants me to join. I'm not sure that's such a good idea. I joined the league last year, and it was a blast. I got to trash talk his co-workers and learn a lot more about the NHL. I even managed to draft many of my beloved Predators for my team. It is for the sake of the Predators, though, that ...
Yesterday Sami Salo injured his wrist on an innocent looking play. Today it was confirmed by an MRI that he has a hairline fracture in his left wrist and is out indefinitly. Salo was injured during the intra-squad game along with Roberto Luongo and Trevor Linden. Luongo and Linden's injuries were minor in nature. Who now will step up and fill the void left by Salo? Edle...

As you may have already read on Sharks.nhl.com, Devin Setoguchi and Torrey Mitchell were both called into Ron Wilson's office before Saturday night's game "to have a talk about numbers." Mitchell told Sharks.nhl.com, "For a second, I thought it wasn't good news and we were being sent down." Instead, the two were given the choice of what number they want to wear for the...

Kings of Last Place

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
While yes the Kings clearly have goaltending issues that need solving that may not be the big issue. The big issue takes place in front of LaBarbera, Aubin, or one of those rookies who just got called up from Manchester. They onloy have three guys who can score!!!! Kopitar, Cammy, and Brown can put pucks in the net and then no one else comes close except O'Sullivan who c...

The Return of LaBarbera

Posted Monday | Comments 0
Now living in L.A. and reading the spordaic L.A. Times Column on the Kings has taught me one thing I already knew, everyone wants Jason back. I pose you this question, why? Yes he was robbed of AHL MVP last year and yes he is the best goalie we have short of forcing a strike in the juniors ending their season early and getting Bernier back. But without we fell to the l...
Watching the Senators of late has been agonizing - how could a team go from being considered a threat to the Montreal Canadiens of the 70's to a .500 team so quickly? Their play harkens back to that fateful 05-06 season when they exploded out of the gate with a 27-6-3 record by January 1st. That team featured a high octane offense led by Alfredsson, Heatley, Spezza and...
Hey pens fans, The last two games are a bit of a black cloud over the team going into tomorrow's game in Buffalo. Their play previvous to that had been very good, especially when considering all the injuries we have sustained. With the trade deadline approaching, the question is what Ray Shero will do, if anything, to fill these roles? When it comes to Fleury's in...

No Bigger Than This

[b]Games don’t get bigger than this[/b]. Win or go home...it will be written countless times about this game so why not one more here too!

Today the Islanders picked up Thomas Pock, a young offensive minded defenseman who in 59 games played in the NHL has recorded 7 goals and 7 assists for 14 points. In the AHL of last season, he ranked 11th in the league for assists by a defenseman with 37, tallying 44 points overall. Not a bad pickup if you ask me. But what is the meaning behind this? We already had 7 de...

Survival of the Fittest

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
Okay, I'm obviously not some great hockey expert writing about all the little nuances of the game I love. But I do know that finely-tuned athletic machines should not be getting hurt so easily in training camp. Today I wake up to find Adam Burrish's name added to the list of players who will not make the season opener and I am forced to ask, what is going on here? Okay,...
The rate of injuries to significant fantasy hockey players seems to be pretty high this season compared to most years. Many key names have gone down, some of which will be out for a significant stretch of time. This can wreck a fantasy hockey team, particularly if you own several of these players in your lineup. Here's a look at the key injuries so far, and what it mean...
The news came today that Jay Pandolfo and Paul Martin are both expected to miss 4-6 weeks. Pandolfo's shoulder seems more serious, as although a timetable has been given, GM Lou Lamoriello admits he is not certain when Pando will return. Martin's forearm fracture will really hurt the Devils, as they lose, arguably, their best (defensive) defenseman. Cory Murphy will be ...
Tonight's 3-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks is the Devil's sixth consecutive win, tying them for the division lead, while getting them one win shy of becoming .500 at home. The Devils have gone 12-2 since their worrisome 0-2 start, which I acknowledge my frequent bringing up of for good reason. Record aside, it looked as if the two winless games forecasted a long and misf...
Another day, another injury for the Devils, who, despite the growing list of injured players, have remained at the top of the Eastern Conference. This last one, however, may really come back to hurt them. Clarkson had seven goals and eight assists so far this season, and was doing a great job on the Devs' third line (for most of the year, he was on that line). He is goi...
Recent injuries can either wreck your fantasy hockey team's season, or provide an opportunity for you to cash in on another's misfortune. Here is what you need to react to some of the biggest IR news in the NHL: [b]Teemu Selanne (F - ANA)[/b] With Selanne being out of NHL action until after the Olympics, many owners will be tempted to dump him (if they haven't already...

Ben Lovejoy is a likeable guy. That almost sounds like I am trying for a joke...but I'm not. Last night Lovejoy went awkwardly into the boards during a collision with a Sharks player and immediately you could tell something was wrong. The grimace on his face...the reaction of the trainer on the bench while feeling Lovejoy's wrist...the quick exit he made to the t...

The Excuse- Injuries

Posted Monday | Comments 0
For once, and I can’t believe I’m saying this, Garth has a decent point. Buffalo brass does need to sit down and have a nice long evaluation of the direction that the Sabres are headed in at this point in the season. However, I can already tell you the excuse that the brass will use to explain the recent play of the Sabres. Injuries. Thats it. I can hear Da...
The Minnesota Wild are in the midst of their worst slump of the season. They have lost their last seven games, and have only scored nine goals in said games. The word I’m seeing thrown around the internet the most is “Regression,” and it is usually followed by some nasty words, some smack talk, and some praise for the Canucks. The Wild have seen their lead in the Wes...
How would you feel, if someone came up to you, and said how happy they were that your favorite player was hurt? Probably, not too good. After reading Garth’s latest, I couldn’t ignore this. This happens to be an issue that I feel very strongly about. “The Sabres just got a shot of positive news as their trek to grab the eighth and final playoff spot rages on. In M...
Okay this current Red Wings slide just never seems to end. After they broke the NHL record for the most consecutive home wins, it seems like an entirely differently hockey, well in most part it is because it is. Let's take a quick run down of players that have missed a game of late: Pavel Datsyuk, Nick Lidstrom, Jimmy Howard, Todd Bertuzzi, Patrick Eaves, Dan Clear...
After defeating the Phoenix Coyotes, the Ducks had 2 games left on their 3 game homestand against the Buffalo Sabres and the Vancouver Canucks. They came away with victories in both games, extending their home record to a perfect 8-0 and extending their league leading point total to 31 with a record of 15-3-1. Frederik Andersen played in both games and improved his record ...
We are losing a lot of good players to injuries from fights. I think there is a simple solution to stop most injuries in hockey fights. How about a 5 game suspension for grabbing jerseys during a fight. If you hold a jersey during a game you get a holding penalty (if the ref catches it), so why not a penalty if you do the same during a fight? If you look back at a lot of ...
Through 36 games, the Ducks have played a league high 21 road games with a record of 11-7-3 away from the Pond (versus having only played 15 games at home, tied for 29th in the league). Those 11 wins are topped only by 2 other teams (Los Angeles and Chicago) and no team in the Eastern Conference has more than 10 wins. While the Ducks are not as good away from home (13-0-2)...
As the season draws into its home stretch, I am once again struggling to come to grips with how the Penguins continue to lead the league in injuries on a yearly basis. While all teams go through a stretch of injuries, the Penguins run borders on the insane, given that they have had not just one but several important players out since the Winter Classic in 2011 when Crosby ...

CBJ- The Injury Report

In the late stages of Tuesday night's game against the Los Angeles Kings, Sergei Bobrovsky sustained an apparent lower-body injury. According to Torts, he is "day to day". The Jackets recalled Joonas Korpisalo from the Lake Erie Monsters. He apparently ranks 7th in save percentage at 0.913 save percentage. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets a game in this week during B...

The Red and White game yesterday was fun (ish) to watch. Guys working hard to get jobs. Noticeably absent were Dylan Larkin and Mike Green. Andreas Athanasiou left about halfway through and didn’t return. Coach Blashill is calling it “tweaks” and “precautionary measures”. It leaves a bad feeling in the stomach all around. So far, we’ve seen injuries to Alec...
