Now that we’re getting to the short strokes of the 2017-18 campaign, with only a handful of games remaining, we have a number of “season-ending” injuries playing havoc with our fantasy rosters. This week’s fantasy focus player has been known to miss a game or two dozen in his short career.   Fantasy Focus   [...]

  With less than three weeks remaining until the start of the post season, it’s going to be tough waiting until April 8th before being completely immersed in so many awesome playoff skirmishes. Until then, we’ll have to settle for the battles by teams trying to punch their playoff dance cards.   Fantasy Focus   [...]

  With the pressure off of those teams who are out of the playoff race, many teams are playing all loosey-goosey. I love that Jimmy Vesey had a hat trick for the Rangers last night and that Seth Jones add two big power play points as Columbus fights for a playoff position. The Sens Magnus [...]

Fantasy Hockey Oscars

  Inspired by Sunday night’s Academy Awards, which I didn’t watch, I will attempt to put a fantasy hockey spin on the old classic. There will be no red carpet fawning or lists of the best and worst dressed players, that stuff is for The Hockey News.   Costume Design   Rest assured, those awful [...]

  Now that we’ve got the trade deadline in the books for another year, it’s time to focus on the playoff races. Like last season, it’s going to come down to the last day, which makes for some exciting hockey heading into the post season.   Fantasy Focus   Evgenii Dadonov has followed an interesting [...]

  It’s good to be back after more than two weeks away (on vacation) from pretty much everything, including hockey. I did manage to catch a few games late last week, but I’ve got nearly a two-week hockey black hole to catch up on.   For a while, I’ve been thinking about putting this weekly [...]

Five Players You Must Own for the Second Half

By |2018-01-29T23:00:55-05:00January 30th, 2018|Eastern Edge|

  This week, the Eastern Edge will take a look at some Eastern Conference players who are very likely to help you win your league with a sweet second half.   I wrote in this year’s DobberHockey Fantasy Guide that the Flyers Travis Konecny was one of my Sleepers in the East. That prediction didn’t [...]

The Puck Stops Here

  This week, the Eastern Edge will take a closer look at the goaltending in the Eastern Conference. Just looking at the numbers between East versus West and it is much more preferable to own a Western Conference goaltender if your league counts goals-against averages and save percentages.   All the statistics that follow are [...]
