NHL Entry Draft Fallout – The Fantasy Perspective

By Darryl Dobbs

Yesterday’s NHL draft put a lot of pieces in place for a lot of teams. The next couple of weeks, with the pending unrestricted free agency season, will put more pieces in place. Here is the fantasy hockey impact of the last day’s events.

Oilers and Leafs Closing on Blockbuster!

Toronto Trades Gone Unrepported

I’ve been watching the results come in from the draft on NHL.com. As a Toronto fan I’ve been paying attention to their picks (all of which seem to be unknown, brutal Europeans besides their first round pick…I’d say they wasted the rest of them). However, it seems two of their picks, which NHL.com had marked down as being Toronto’s picks until the draftee was posted, ended up being exchanged to different teams. Searching through all the hockey news sites I can’t see any report of a trade having taken place. As well, I there does not appear to be any draft picks from the teams in question going back to Toronto.

Leafs Close To Aquiring Pronger!?

The Toronto Star is reporting that the Maple Leafs and Edmonton Oilers are closing in on a deal which should involve Chris Pronger and Tomas Kaberle!

Laviolette staying in Carolina

ANAHEIM DUCKS!!!

The Anaheim DUCKS have officialy changed their name as well as their colors…

UFA Goalies

After watching this years playoffs, I have come to realize that you don’t need a proven starting goalie to win the cup or even go far in the playoffs.

RANGERS OFF-SEASON REPORT

Who won the cup!? oh.. ok.. so anyway here’s a full look at the NY Rangers Salary’s, Free Agents, and Top Farm Prospects. With some help from… http://thefourthperiod.com

Now Since the news of the cap being raised to $44 Million (and the NHL not making that well known to it’s fans) each team now has some cash to spend.

The NY Rangers have a lot of players to resign, bring up from the farm, let go, and look to UFA’s.

Nashville Predators News

The Predators are gearing up for a very busy couple of weeks.

Domi a Hab?

Toronto Maple Leafs tough guy Tie Domi was recently seen dining with Habs blueliner Sheldon Souray. Domi is rumoured to be on the verge of having his contract bought out by the Leafs and Hickey claims Domi is a character player Gainey and Carbonneau covet.
