DobberBaseball’s Top 150 Pitchers list is up. I personally am getting back in to the swing of things (har har) this year after taking a brief hiatus from fantasy baseball. Check the site out!
Stay tuned tomorrow for the official announcement of the prizes for the Olympic Pool… How do you feel about signed Canada jerseys?
Brent Burns is IN tonight.
Ho hum, another shutout for Marty Brodeur. That makes seven on the season.
If you haven't already, make sure you join the DobberHockey Olympic Pool. It is being run by the fine folks over at ArmChairPools. Check out the pool here. We are in the process of securing sponsors, but there are some rumblings that a signed Team Canada jersey may be involved. The pool is free to join, and in addition to the prizes we secure you will get bragging rights over your friends and the entire community here at DobberHockey.
You can change your picks whenever you want right up until the games begin, so don't fret over your selections right now. Just register for the pool and check it out!
Also – buy the Midseason Guide. I personally have used the guide to make two trades since early January. For example, I made a move to acquire Tomas Vokoun (a notorious second-half goalie).
Nick Palmieri had an assist in his NHL debut last night with the Devils. He skated with Parise and Zajac at times, as the Devils will have to make due without Patrik Elias for the forseeable future. He doesn’t have much offensive upside but could be worth a look if he can stick with the big guns for a few weeks.
Alex Steen has 17 points in 16 games. I have caught the Blues a few times and he looks like a much improved player offensively. He has always been a great skater, but his insticts were often lacking. He’s played great lately and may be finally developing into a solid offensive producer.
Johnny Oduya’s return hasn’t affected Andy Greene all that much, as Greene saw over 24 minutes of ice time.
Paul Kariya has three points in his last two games. Hey its a start…
With Willie Mitchell out, O’Brien, Ehrhoff, Edler, and Salo all saw heavy minutes.
Devan Dubnyk is still looking for his first NHL win. He was great last night but the Oilers were unable to hold on to a 2-1 lead. Dubnyk had a particularly nice save on Ryan Kesler in the second period on a cross-ice feed.
It may get lost in the box scores, but over the past three or four games Mason Raymond has simply been dominant with the puck for Vancouver. Kesler has slowed down a bit (I think he is playing with a slight injury), but Raymond has been all over the ice. Even knocked Ladislav Smid down with a big hit last night.
Benoit Pouliot continues his great play with the Habs. He had two more goals last night, and now has more goals with Montreal then he had in his ENTIRE career with Minnesota. Talk about a win-win.
