Dobber Nation glitch is fixed – try it now
Love the latest poll Angus threw up there – put me down for Backstrom… (oops, I may have influenced the poll’s results!)
As Banks points out in the comments below, Burke is shopping Pogge. His star is fading fast and I don’t even feel comfortable in saying that a fresh start would turn things around. Thanks to late-blooming Europeans, the goalie market is flooded and even the good goaltending prospects will have a tougher time getting into the NHL.
Regarding Matt Hunwick and Johnny Boychuk, I think that both of them make up risky picks, but I also believe that one of them will get close to 40 points. Is Boychuk a career minor leaguer? We’ll find out this season. The opportunity is there. It could come down to aWideman injury helping Boychuk to explode onto the scene…or with six healthy d-men Boychuk never gets into the lineup and fades into obscurity. Many star NHL careers rest upon the head of a pin just like that. With Hunwick, he was getting scratched at times once Ference came back last season. I don’t trust him. I also didn’t trust Wideman and look what happened with him. Hunwick has proven that he can post a point every two games…but he’s also proven he can get scratched. If you’ve already rolled the dice on a d-man on your fantasy squad, I wouldn’t recommend rolling them again with Hunwick. However, if you have a safe team with lots of sure bets…then he’s worth grabbing and sticking on reserve.
There goes my trade theory. The pressure is off as the Bruins have signed Derek Morris.
Phoenix re-signed checking forward Daniel Winnik. I think his status within the club is fading and he’ll be spending time in the press box.
The Flyers signed MA Bourdon to a ELC. He is still a few years away and is by no means a lock as a future NHLer, despite the monster numbers.
The Bruins will buy out Eaves if he gets through waivers, which I’m sure he will…
