Angus here – my fantasy hockey mailbag is open. Ask your questions here.

 

Fantasy Guide and Draft List were updated on Sunday. iPhone draft app too. Next update is Wednesday…and there will then be one final one on Friday. Also, regarding the occasional person who has problems with a "corrupt file" – it's not. It's your browser, the file is fine. Some versions of Firefox struggle opening some versions of Adobe, or so I've learned over the past month.

 

Chicago cut Alexander Salak and signed Ray Emery – potentially big implications. Emery may be worth stashing until December.

 

The Devils cut Matt Taormina, Alex Urbom and elected not to sign Steve Bernier. Rod Pelley and Matthew Corrente were waived along with Zharkov. No word yet on Petr Sykora and Anton Stralman. Adam Larsson has made the team. It would seem that Adam Henrique has as well.

 

Ryan Ellis was cut by the Preds today. Hillen is in.

 

The Sharks cut Justin Braun and Benn Ferreiro

 

Uh oh – Harding injured again. Ankle swollen – deets here.

 

Brunnstrom’s deal is a two-way agreement.

 

The Preds have placed Kyle Wilson on waivers.

 

No surprise – the Red Wings have signed Fabian Brunnstrom.

 

The Penguins have cut Joe Morrow. They also sent Jason Williams down and placed Sidney Crosby on the IR. Crosby, as such, can’t play the first three games.

 

The Devils have waived Vladimir Zharkov.

 

I am shocked that Keith Aulie has been cut by the Leafs. Jake Gardiner just beat him out for a roster spot, plain and simple. Matt Frattin also made the team. Gardiner is in a good situation, though, as he will be behind Liles and Phaneuf in terms of PP time. I didn’t expect Gardiner to make the team this year – not at all. His 3YP is 42 points, which pushes him just off the chart (to answer a question in the comments). His preseason performance obviously will cause some adjustments – next update is Wednesday morning.

 

📢 advertisement:

Chicago has cut some more – including Marcus Kruger and Brandon Pirri. It looks as though Brandon Saad has made the team. Another job well earned! But if he stumbles at all in the first nine games, he’ll be sent down I’m sure (similar to Niederreiter last year). Still to come – the announcement regarding the winner between Salak and Emery.

 

RDS is reporting that Jonathan Huberdeau has been cut by the Panthers.

 

The Jets have signed Mark Scheifele to an ELC. No big shock, given his tremendous play in the preseason. I still have him penciled in for nine games this season.

 

Dobber favorite Cam Atkinson has made the Blue Jackets. And what's more – he's
