If you placed in the top 10 of the DobberHockey Olympic Pool, check this topic out!

 

Atlanta acquires Evgeni Artyukhin from the Ducks for Nathan Oystrick and a conditional draft pick. I’ll do a fantasy analysis on this one tomorrow. I’m about wiped today…

 

I’ve been trying to set up a live chat for deadline day. I’ll be doing a live chat with Hockey Utopia Tuesday evening (I’m trying to sync that here as well). Lyle “Spector” Richardson will also partake. It should be a good one.

 

Rankings – up now. I will do a ‘special’ rankings after the trade deadline.

 

Minor deal – Isles send Greg Moore to Columbus for Dylan Reese, a d-man.

 

Breaking news from Bob McKenzie on Twitter – Calgary has re-signed Matt Stajan for four years at $14 million. Nice pay day! The next Daymond Langkow?

 

Steve Ott has reportedly agreed to a four-year contract extension with Dallas according to the Dallas Morning News. Salary is said to be close to $3 million per.

 

Here’s the tool I spoke of: I’ve been working with the good fellas at pickemfirst.com and now that DobberHockey has been added to the Blogs it is ready for you to use! Here’s what I want you to do – go to PickemFirst (watch the 1:54 video is optional). Then download the program onto your toolbar. You can run the program on any hockey news article you are reading. What does it do? It picks off names on the Internet page you are reading and sticks icons in front of each player. These icons are color coded to show you who is on your team, who is in your league, and who is available. Click the icon and a cool player window opens up telling you which league he is owned in, as well as options to click “new” (which gives you Yahoo and Rotowire points) and “blogs” (which gives you DobberHockey points). It’s all at your fingertips – so quick and easy. And FREE. I uploaded my Yahoo Experts League and synched it, as well as my CBSsportsline league in about two seconds. It was far easier to setup than I thought it would be and now on any page I can just go to my tools and run it. I stuck a screenshot of these very ramblings after I ran the program and clicked the icon beside “Danny Syvret”. See it below. I’d love to hear your feedback on this great tool – you know I only recommend the best for you! PickemFirst!

 

The NHL is back underway tonight, but with just one game – Detroit and Colorado. Gold medal game performers who may be tired in this one – Paul Stastny and Brian Rafalski.

 

Tomas Holmstrom and Milan Hejduk were unable to participate in the Olympics due to injury, but with the time off have probably healed enough to get b
