Ramblings – Free Agent Frenzy 2021! Dobber Sets You Up (July 28)



The Fantasy Guide is out August 14, which is a very fast turnaround (fastest ever). Since I can't project anything until tomorrow after the free agent craziness starts dying down and rosters begin to take shape. All I could do in advance was study and analyze last season. Pounding at this to make sure it gets done by that August 14 date, we're talking 65-plus hours per week and frankly I'm pumped to successfully complete that accomplishment!

By the way, I just re-uploaded an update for the Fantasy Prospects Report. In it, I put in all the teams for the draftees and when they were taken – with links for easy navigation. Simply re-upload the FPR to get the updated version.


I am pinch-hitting for Alex MacLean today because on the weekend he and his wife had their first child, a healthy baby girl! Congrats to the MacLean family. Alex got a great deal here – a long-term contract at a perfect AAV that is sure to bring him years of glory 😉


With all the activity of the past two weeks, plus free agency starting today, chances are many of you have questions about your fantasy team or players in general.  If so, you can submit them for Rick Roos’ monthly mailbag, which is set to run a week from today, and where he has room for a couple more questions.  To submit your question to him either private message “rizzeedizzee” in the Forums or send an email to [email protected] with “Roos Mailbag” in the subject line.



It feels like normalcy started to creep back in on Friday with the NHL Draft. Only "started" because it was still being done remotely. Today, however… today it feels right! FA Frenzy – the buildup, the action, the day itself feels like any other FAF. We're back baby! Cliffy and I will be breaking down all the signings today so keep DobberHockey open on one of your tabs. Follow me on Twitter for links to my breakdowns as they are posted.

I'll also update the below with the minor signings that have little fantasy impact, and if I get time I'll also leave a quick thought about each one.

We’ll kick things off with the top one, so not a minor signing, but he is staying put – Gabriel Landeskog has re-signed with Colorado. Eight years at $7M per yea
