Fantasy Hockey March 8, 2015

Ian Gooding


Well, this is officially my debut with DobberHockey, taking care of the Sunday Ramblings. I'm thrilled to be a part of what is a solid team here at DobberHockey, which is a site that you need to visit if you have sights on winning your fantasy league.

So who am I, exactly? I current write fantasy hockey articles for Today's Slapshot, a new, up-and-coming hockey website. I was at one time the content editor of, and I've also written for Kukla's Korner. I'm gooding74 in the Forums – the guy with the Gary Bromley mask. Let's chat us some fantasy hockey. 

Steve Mason owners (such as myself, who recently added him as a "rental" in one keeper league) were left wondering what could have been on Saturday against Boston. Mason and the Flyers were clinging onto a 2-1 lead when Wayne Simmonds was called for a penalty which would essentially cover the final two minutes of regulation. Mason almost secured the win, but he allowed a goal to Brad Marchand with 15 seconds left in regulation. Marchand was able to score his second goal of the game to secure the win for the Bruins. Despite the loss, Mason was solid in making 34 saves. Steve Laidlaw had some interesting analysis in his most recent Ramblings about how Mason might be affected with the departure of goalie coach Jeff Reese.

Speaking of that little pest Marchand, he is officially hot right now with a three-game goal streak. During those three games, he has four goals and one assist.
