Dobber Sports



In a Head to Head league? As part of a special "Roto-Look Ahead", I added a chart at the bottom that gives you the teams with the best – and worst – schedule from March 10 through the end of the season. Apparently, in Yahoo! the playoffs for H2H leagues start March 10.


Ottawa has fired coach John Paddock. Bryan Murray takes over. This should get the Sens going, if nothing else. As an Emery owner in one league, I'm pretty happy with the move. 


One trade missed yesterday – the Ducks traded prospect RW Brandon Segal to the Lightning for 28-year-old career minor leaguer Jay Leach. Neither are remotely close to my fantasy prospect list.


The Ducks returned Andrew Ebbett to Portland, so it looks like Weight will be back in the lineup shortly.


Chris Pronger had surgery to repair his jaw after getting a stick in the mouth. It may cost him a couple of games, but the Ducks have Bergeron now and would like to see what he can do. 


With all their trades, sots of space opened up in Atlanta. So the team recalled Bryan Little and Colin Stuart. Little played 14:14 and 1:59 on the PP last night and was a minus-1. Stuart was a minus-2 and played even less.


Alex Tanguay did not dress yesterday because of his neck injury. He is day to day.


Mark Parrish missed last night's contest with the flu.


Columbus assigned Derick Brassard to Syracuse and recalled Derek McKenzie.


Carolina assigned Jeff Hamilton, who had cleared waivers a month ago, to Albany. This was to make room for the return of Patrick Eaves and the arrival of Tuomo Ruttu. Eaves played 6:42 and Ruutu played 15:31 and notched an assist. Line combos below:


Carolina line combos: Staal with Cole and Whitney, Cullen with Ruutu and Samsonov, Eaves was like a rover – playing shifts with Cullen and Samsonov, as well as with Brookbank and Ruutu. He even saw a shift with Staal.


Detroit assigned Jimmy Howard to the minors. Hasek expects to play on Friday.


The Kings sent Teddy Purcell to Manchester.


📢 advertisement:

This is sort of implied… but the Habs recalled Jaroslav Halak.


The Isles recalled Jeff Tambellini


With the arrival of Prospal, the Flyers sent Steve Downie to the minors. They also sent down Ryan Parent.


While they await the arrival of Hossa and Dupuis, the Penguins had to recall Connor James and Nathan Smith.


The Blues recalled Jeff Woywitka.


The Maple Leafs recalled Jeremy Williams – he is worth keeping an eye on as he may see more ice time this time around.


The Canucks recalled Rick Rypien and reassigned Luc Bourdon.


Viktor Kozlov missed last night's contest with the flu. Chris Bourque was recalled in his stead. He played fewer than 10 minutes and did not see the PP.
