April 27, 2009 – Matt Duchene…and More…

by Dobber Sports on April 27, 2009

 

Detroit prospect Dick Axelsson has returned to Sweden. He was unable to get into an AHL game due to a finger injury. He is ranked 96th on my prospects list.

 

Both Sergei Samsonov and Jamie Langenbrunner returned to the NJ/CAR series last night. Samsonov has just one point in five playoff games and he played 14 minutes.

 

Here is an interesting article evaluating some Nashville prospects (such as Spaling, Franson and Jessiman).

 

Anders Eriksson will likely replace Phaneuf tonight, who is officially day-to-day. Eriksson…he's no Phaneuf 😉

 

Because the Pens won a playoff series, the pick that they gave up to get Bill Guerin goes from a 5th rounder to a 3rd rounder.

 

2009 draftee Matt Duchene, who I compare to Steven Stamkos in terms of immediate impact and long-term potential, scored a hat trick last Friday to eliminate Belleville. His Brampton Battalion will play Windsor in the OHL Final, which begins Wednesday.

 

Regarding the Frozen Pool section of our site (a fantastic tool that can be accessed via the "Fantasy Tools" tab at the top), it will be free for 6-10 weeks, and then it will be a paid service. Those who buy a package (Keeper or Ultimate) will get a large discount on this paid service. I won't be making it available on my Shop page until it actually requires paid access.

 

On the latest Dobber Nation Podcast, Guy Flaming of Edmonton's "Pipeline Show" and Hockey's Future will be on to discuss the Oilers and some prospects; Paul McCann hosts Preds weekly show on AM560 sports radio in Nashville; DobberHockey's Jeff Angus will be on to give his take on some of the playoff action. That's tomorrow. As always, if you want to a) have a banner on the Dobber Nation page for over 10,000 sets of eyes to see, AND b ) Have a 30-second ad for 10,000 sets of ears to hear – all for $50-$80, \n \n email Rob here This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it .
