Joe Cutroni provides an inside look at who’s hot and who’s not around the Western Conference to give you the edge you need in your fantasy hockey league.
Jonathan Toews (C, CHI) has started to step up his game of late. He’s posted three goals and five points in his last five contests, and his fantasy value is still lower than what most owners envisioned it to be prior to the season, but Toews may be turning the corner after a dreadful start to the 2008-09 campaign.
The Oilers and Penguins have just swung a deal that has goalie Mathieu Garon going to the Penguins in exchange for Dany Sabourin, Ryan Stone and a 4th round pick.
The most rampant rumours of late have been about Tampa Bay Lightning captain Vincent Lecavalier.
Should he or shouldnt he be moved? There are definitely valid arguments for and against.
As you know, many teams are currently in financial troubles due to either the recession or the lack of a strong fan base.
Here’s a list of teams which should, for the sake of the NHL, be on the move. Sorry to Fans of these teams :
The Islanders have agreed to play an exhibition match against the Kings in Kansas City in September – so what? Well this NBC journalist adds that to the Islanders desperation for a new stadium and the Kansas Sprint Centre owners desire for a hockey team to equal a potential move for the Islanders.
The Globe and Mail is reporting that Pat Quinn is “back on the coaching radar” due in a big way to his recent gold metal victory at the World Junior Championships in Ottawa.
Various sources are reporting that the Maple Leafs are showing a high level of interest in some University standouts.
Many feel to move forward, the team needs to move one of them, gather significant assets, relieve their payroll and take a step back to strengthen their future.
Now we all know that the NHL is having problems right now so i have 5 simple ways to fix them.
Sean Avery is reportedly in talks with the Rangers to take a league minimum salary.
After being sent down and somehow “kicked off the Dallas Stars”
The league is working out a deal with Sean Avery’s agents and advisers so that he can re-join the NHL and come back to the NY Rangers… maybe the only team that would welcome him.
The Ottawa Sun is reporting that the Senators G.M. is anxious to make a move and has interest in a Blue Jackets defenseman.
Boston.com is reporting that the Bruins could make an offer for Lecavailer.Could Kessel be included in a possible deal?
The trading of Jason Williams by the Atlanta Thrashers is just the start of things to come.
A deadbeat team once again, Atlanta should be busy like they were last year at the trade deadline.
The following are due to be UFAs: Marty Reasoner, Eric Perrin, Mathieu Schnieder, Niklas Havelid.
If you add the likes of Slava Kozlov, Todd White, Johan Hedberg and Garnet Exelby, the Thrashers have a wide variety of players available for trade.
