Ramblings: Early Values for DeBrusk, Bunting, and Marchment; Kempe and Vrana; Updates on Suzuki and Talbot – October 4

It is hard to believe we're just a week away from the regular season but training camp is truly getting short on runway. There are a couple games in Europe this weekend before the rest of the league gets going, but I think most fans have October 11th circled on the calendar.

It is a reminder to double-check your fantasy hockey schedule in your particular league. As Ian mentioned in a Ramblings on the weekend, it could be an opportunity to roster some depth Sharks/Predators players for their European vacation. Just be sure you're in a league whose schedule includes those Nashville-San Jose contests because it'd be a shame to cut players you drafted, even those at the end of a fantasy team, for guys that can't be used.


On Sunday, the good fellas at the Keeping Karlsson podcast had me on to do commentary on their KKUPFL Tier 1 auction draft. I sat with Brian as he and I discussed the values of the players, team composition, guys going for cheap, and a whole lot more. Head on over to the Dobber Podcast section to hear what we had to say about dozens (hundreds?) of fantasy options for the season.
