Hello, I hope you’re doing well and laying low at this time. A special shout out to all the health-care workers working the frontlines of this pandemic, plus anyone else who is working extra hard during this time.

Ramblings: Assist-Heavy Forwards – O’Reilly, Duchene, Dzingel (Mar 21)

In yesterday’s Ramblings, I ran a report on Frozen Tools on players who had scored at least 15 goals, then downloaded it to Excel to add a column that would allow me to determine the players who had highest number of goals per assist. I called this Cy Young award winners because of how the [...]

Ramblings: Cy Young Candidates in Hockey – Acciari, Pageau, Neal (Mar 20)

I hope you’re doing well and managing to adjust to these difficult times. Not just with the lack of hockey, but also other changes to your day-to-day life, whatever they may be. Who knows, maybe you’ve even been able to pull out a positive or two from this situation. For me, that involves being able [...]

Top 100 Roto Rankings – March 2020

The coronavirus has halted the season at a point where fantasy teams are doing whatever it takes to compete for a title.

Ramblings: Allowing Adds and Drops, Rinne, Forsberg (Mar 15)

Hopefully you were able to find alternate ways to pass the time on Saturday instead of watching hockey. Something to consider while we wait for the season to possibly resume is the status of injured players. Rather than try to speculate on injured players that may return if NHL play resumes at some point, I’ll [...]

Ramblings: The Current Situation and Fantasy Leagues, Schenn, Radulov (Mar 14)

Man, a lot has happened in the past few days, so I don’t know where to begin. Maybe I’ll start by reminding you to stay safe out there. The usual stuff you’ve been hearing a lot lately, like washing your hands, coughing or sneezing into your arm, and staying home if you don’t feel well. [...]

Ramblings: Another Saros Shutout, Hedman Injured – Opportunity For Sergachev? (Mar 8)

A handful of early games allows me to get a head start, so let’s start there for our Saturday recap. Since the Ilya Kovalchuk trade, Richard Panik has been moved down to the fourth line with Garnet Hathaway and Nic Dowd. The funny thing is that move has actually helped Panik, as he is on [...]

Ramblings: Hellebuyck Big Shutout, Gibson Injured, Saturday Goalie Starts (Mar 7)

In a game with massive playoff implications for the Jets, Connor Hellebuyck stopped all 29 shots he faced in a 4-0 win over the Golden Knights. Hellebuyck has now earned shutouts in two of his last four games. He’s also put together an impressive run of quality starts, with 11 quality starts over his last [...]
