We have been busy here at Dobber Hockey over the last month. First, we are coming off what we fondly called Bubble Keeper Week, where we discuss players and answer questions about those guys at the bottom of everyone's potential keeper list. To get started, be sure to check out all our Ramblings from the last eight days or so. Dobber, Ian, Alex, and I replied to a lot of questions sent in via social media or found on our Forums. There were also a lot of articles from our writers covering this as well so be sure to check out what was written about some bubble keepers from across the league.

We also released our 2022 Dobber Hockey Fantasy Guide. This will be updated all through the offseason and training camp so that our readers get constant access to up-to-date information. It is a great way to support what we do all year long so go grab your copy!

Despite it still being August, we are gearing up fast for the 2022-23 NHL season. Be sure to go through everything we have already because there's a lot more to come. Thanks for following along, everyone.

Two guys we won't be discussing are Evan Rodrigues and Sonny Milano. I have talked at length about both of those players already t
