The DobberBaseball Fantasy Guide is out now and fully updated – tell your baseball fan friends, I promise they’ll love this guide and how thorough it is.

Hey, look what’s back – Brent Burns playing forward! I didn’t see the game, but judging by the screwed up line combos for San Jose over at Frozen Pool, it looks like he played with Logan Couture and Joe Thornton. He scored (and Scott Gomez drew an assist so I assume he played shifts with him as well). He may be given W/D eligibility.

No Malkin, no problem. Beau Bennett, the subject of my Hockey News article Monday (read it here) picked up another assist to give him six points in his last eight games.

Dammit! I turned off the TV with about nine minutes left in the Penguins game. They were getting stonewalled and I wanted to get a jump on the ramblings. I go back and see that they stormed back from 2-0 to win 3-2. Hate when that happens, I get so restless if it’s low scoring.

Teemu Selanne picked up his first point in six games last night and has just three in his last 12. The Ducks may give him the odd night off going forward – something to watch.

*

The ridiculous and crazy Shawn Horcoff stat continues – he’s been back for two games and the Oilers have won both of them. What is it about him that makes such a difference? Suddenly, I think he’s worth that contract!

Magnus Paajarvi has five points in six games, with his two last night. He’s shooting the puck now – 18 shots in his last six games – and he’s plus-5 in that span.

*

Jake Muzzin has seven points in his last five games. I picked him up last week and have been enjoying it – in fact, I did a trade on the weekend and told the guy I accept his offer but had him take out Cam Fowler from his offer because I didn’t want to drop Muzzin. He has nine points in his last nine games.

*

Andrej Sekera has four points in his last three games and we’ve seen him post big numbers during a 20-game run before back in 2011. It teased us into thinking he would be a big producer, but then the Sabres ruined it by signing Ehrhoff. The point is – Sekera could be starting a nice little run here, and don’t think he can’t do it.

*

Sergei Bobrovsky: 4-0-1, 0.81 GAA and 0.973 in his last five games. His numbers are now very good overall. I’ll leave Flyers fans alone, other than to say I’m sorry.

Derick Brassard has points in four of the five games since his return from a brief UBI.

Riley Nash is starting to show what both Edmonton and Carolina saw in him. Frankly I had my doubts, but the Canes felt he could b
