Ramblings – 12 Western Conference Players to Keep an Eye On, The Fantasy Guide Release Date and more (July 13)



If you haven't already, pick up the Fantasy Prospects Report (14th Edition)! This is now fully updated, other than the Mock Draft which we will put in once the final draft order is set. A great summer read, to replace your usual summer reading of, uh, actual fantasy hockey guides. And thank you for supporting the Dobber Sports Network of fantasy hockey sites. All of the sites are fully funded by the sales of the Guides.


And speaking of which, now that the NHL has a (hopefully, somewhat, as best as can be given the circumstances) 'firm' schedule of dates, I can set my own.

NHL Dates:

August 1 – NHL play-in and round robin

September 22 – Cup Final

October 2 – Latest date for Cup win

October 6 – NHL Draft

October 9 – Free Agent Frenzy!

November 17 – Training camps open (46-day offseason is usually around 86 days)

December 1 – Start of 2020-21 82-game NHL season

DobberHockey Dates:

October 11 – Analysis for the 15th annual Fantasy Hockey Guide can begin

October 23 (Friday) – I will release the Fantasy Guide with what I am targeting as 16 teams complete, to cover off any fantasy league drafts for that weekend. It is my hope to re-release this guide each day with two more teams done.

October 30 (Friday) – I will hopefully release the Fantasy Guide with all the teams done. If a couple of teams are still not quite complete, I will work around the clock to polish it off within a day or two. A few features may not be complete yet, but again the updates will be fast and furious over the ensuing week.

I've been doing this for 15 years now. I am an expert at putting quality fantasy hockey guides together and have a system in place to get this done well, and done quickly. Nobody can match me here – those who have worked with me can attest to this. I have all the tools I need all arou
