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.
Patrick Kane (RW, CHI) has started to turn around his play of late as he looks to snap his long offensive slump. Kane is plus-3, has registered one goal, four assists and 11 SOG in the last three games. Fantasy owners who’ve held onto Kane could see a big week from the young forward as he faces Nashville, Pittsburgh and Los Angeles.

The Vancouver Canucks officially have full support of this Leafs fan. Please do what Toronto never could, give one of the best players ever a Stanley cup. I believe that with Sundin clicking, with Luongo healthy, and with the Sedins doing what they do, Vancouver has a legitimate shot at winning the cup. Not a long article, just a notice. Nucks Nation, you have full support of at least a portion of Leafs Nation.

Rumor has it that the Flyers and Atlanta Thrashers are discussing options. Apparently, there is talks of Van Riemsdyk for Kari Lehtonen!?! This could not be a bigger mistake for the Flyers! Why in the world would they trade their top prospect who has yet to emerge, for an overrated goaltender no more of an upgrade from their current duo of Nitty/Biron?? Not to mention, with the goaltending talent out there that is pending to be UFA’s such as Backstrom (my first choice) Fernandez, and Khababulin, why would the Flyers choose Lehtonen at the cost of their future? The Flyers could trade for a UFA at the deadline for a much smaller price and resign in the offseason…Both Biron and Nitty are UFA’s and only one will return next season.
16 teams make the playoffs. 14 teams do not. Ideally then, there would be 16 buyers and 14 sellers. This is rarely the case, as sub playoff teams look for a boost, while some 7th or 8th place teams wonder if its worth while to buy a player.
This season seems to be more of the prior. Sellers are falling off the board left right and center, meaning this Deadline could very well be slim pickings.
