Welcome once again to “An Expert’s Audit”. This audit will be posted here as well as on my fantasy hockey blog at Hockey Analysis . During the season I also do weekly reviews of teams for people who email in to me for a look-see, they’re less indepth but just as much fun. Dobber audits will continue to appear here monthly and if you’re interested in having your keeper team “worked over” then you can begin by emailing Dobber about it BEFORE February 19th.

 

This month, and every month through March, not only does a lucky entrant get his or her team audited, but he or she also receives a FREE book courtesy of Firefly Books . The winner will receive either "Shooting From the Lip " or "Hockey Now! "

Let’s take a look at Nothing-man.  (*) is your 8 keeps.

C Derek Roy * BUF – I think he has 90 pt upside.  He’s on pace for 79 pts as I write this but I honestly think there’s more here that he brings to the table.
C Shawn Horcoff EDM – he provided pt/game production last year and he could still provide that.  At his present pace he won’t even reach 60 pts on the season but I think that 70ish is still possible if he puts some chemistry together over the 2nd half.
C Ryan Kesler VAN – when the nucks matched that offer sheet a couple years back my reaction was that it was an
