Dobber’s THN column on some home-ice performers who are notably weak on the road so far this year. Tomorrow – the Road Warriors. Also, here is his bi-weekly mailbag, posted Wednesday.
Only one game on the schedule tonight – flip me an e-mail or a tweet if you want me to discuss a player/team/trade in tomorrow’s ramblings.
If you aren’t using the Game Planner tool (just click on the Fantasy Tools section on the left hand menu to access it), you are missing out. Edmonton vs. Colorado tonight – get the details of the matchup here.
I have posted a few new wallpapers over on the hockey forums. Check them all out here.
Craig Anderson left the Avalanche game last night after re-aggravating his lower body injury.
Jeff Tambellini looked great skating on the second line with Raymond and Kesler. He should have never been sent down in the first place.
The DobberBaseball Prospects Report is out!
Semyon Varlamov started for the Caps last night – as a Neuvirth owner, I am glad he is my third goalie. I expect a lot of frustration from Varlamov/Neuvirth owners for the rest of the season…

Ovechkin was goalless, but he had three assists and finished the game with 10 shots on goal.
I hammered him when he was struggling, so time for me to give him his due – Marc Andre-Fleury is playing very good hockey for the Penguins right now.
The Flyers are 12-2-1 in their past 15 games.
Patrick O'Sullivan scored the lone Minnesota goal last night. The Wild originally drafted him back in 2003 – he was traded to Los Angeles for Pavol Demitra before ever playing a game with the team.
The Wild recently claimed him off of waivers from Carolina. I have zero expectations for him – he has been a huge disappointment too many times.
Andreas Nodl has eight points in his past 10 games. He has gone pointless only twice during that span. A nice complimentary player who will always play with talented linemates – the Flyers are incredibly deep up front.
I rarely pick up a player solely for plus-minus purposes (Jeff Schultz last year comes to mind), but I have done so this season with Andrej Meszaros (plus-15).
Andy McDonald is quietly on pace for close to 25 goals and over 60 points.
Buy-low candidate – Shea Weber. On pace for less than 10 goals and only 30 points.
Mark Recchi recorded his 1500th career point in the NHL last night. I am continually amazed with how effective he still is at his age.
Horton was not surprisingly booed a lot by those (few) in attendance for the Boston/Florida game last night.
