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 [...]

Ramblings: Answering very specific questions

With regards to hockey, there are many more questions than answers right now. Sports, as a general concept, need to take a backseat to everything else at the moment. What it does let us think about is questions relating to the game we love. Let’s try to answer some of those burning questions.   Which [...]

Ramblings: Social Distancing, Draft Lottery, Playoff Alternatives, Caufield, Newhook, & Kotkaniemi (March 18)

I’ve been playing and watching hockey for over 25 years. I began writing about the sport in 2015. I don’t think I’ve ever been in a situation where I didn’t know what to say. That has all changed. With the impacts that we as an entire society are facing at the hands of COVID-19, my [...]

Ramblings: Looking back on fun players to watch

Well, here we are. The NHL has shut down, along with basically everything else in North America, and it doesn’t look like that situation is going to change in the near-term. In fact, the restrictions are probably only going to get more severe. The CDC said they’re recommending two months with gatherings of no more [...]

Ramblings: No Hockey? Then Let’s Field a Bunch of Your Fantasy Q’s… (Mar 16)

I took to my Twitter peeps for today's content. Here we go! * This is a great question, and it’s obviously brought because of one man – Sergei Bobrovsky. Last summer, to me, he was the third best goaltender to own. Florida was a great, underperforming team that just got a lot better with [...]

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. [...]

Dobber Ramblings: NHL season suspended; IIHF announcement; primary points – March 13

The NHL started the day by cancelled all morning skates, given the COVID-19 pandemic that has spread globally, and the NBA’s suspension of its season on Wednesday night. The writing was on the wall: college games are being cancelled, NBA games suspended, mass gathering outlawed, people getting sick seemingly in real time on television, and [...]

Ramblings: Slew of Avalanche updates; Tuch setback; COVID-19; primary point producers – March 12

Andre Burakovsky, Matt Calvert, Nazem Kadri, and Philip Grubauer were all skating before Colorado’s practice on Wednesday. That’s a good sign, but it’s obvious there’s still a little ways to go before that quartet returns to action. Nathan MacKinnon was not skating with the team, either before or during practice, and is expected to miss [...]

Ramblings: The Rocket Race, Saros Rolls On, Malkin, Shesterkin, Lundkvist, & Covid-19 (March 11)

Morgan Rielly returned to action on Tuesday night to face the Lightning after a lengthy lay off. It was a welcomed sight for fantasy owners as he could provide an immediate impact on playoff lineups. He may even help the Leafs too. I guess. Rielly skated 21 minutes while seeing time on PP2. Tyson Barrie [...]
