Ramblings – Goalies: who’s going where, top RFA signing sheet candidates, and more of your questions (Oct 01)

I relaunched DobberProspects.com on Friday! Now go on and enjoy a cleaner, slicker site in time for the upcoming 2020 NHL Entry Draft. Still a few tweaks to go, and a couple of cool widgets I want to ad, but much of it is done. And please turn off your ad blocker. Any popup issues I may have had in the past are either gone, or easily squashed if any return. The player pages are pretty sweet (see Nick Robertson here), and we'll have the team pages looking just as sweet very soon.

The Fantasy Prospects Report was re-released on Tuesday. Updates, new profiles, the Mock Draft – it's all there, check it out!

So the offseason is always a bit of a chore trying to come up with good fantasy content for the Ramblings, but at least we have a few days to prepare. I'm always jotting down notes, I have sources I check for topics, and each week I have something nice for you. But Cliffy had a last minute issue crop up and I was asked to pinch-hit late Wednesday, no preparation. As usual, I turn to you for help. Over to you, Twitter!

To land anyone of substance it's going to be very costly. I love Oliver Ekman-Larsson as much as the next guy, but the price I've heard for him makes me shudder. But if they make the deal happen, then OEL and the rest of the team benefit huge. But I tend to believe that these deals have better odds of not happening than happening. So if they don't land OEL and they can't sign a Torey Krug or an Alex Pietrangelo, then I hope they don't 'settle' for someone worse like a Justin Schultz or Sami Vatanen (who I respect, but gets hurt so much he'd be useless in helping a team like the Oilers). External help, to me, is limited to those first three names I noted. After that, just look internally. Ethan Bear was awesome last year. Darnell Nurse is awesome every time Klefbom is on the shelf! Is
