Pre-season Cup Odds out of Vegas

Here are the odds, out of Vegas, for the 2002 Stanley Cup Championship.

Update on Berard

Berard again played well on Sunday night’s game against the Bruins, finished 3-0 win for New York Rangers. Berard played 22 shifts, about 17:41 minutes of ice time, 4 hits, 2 blocked shots, 1 shot and a +1. Seems as if he will just get better and make a good comeback, a decent one.

These were Sunday night’s Line Ups of the Rangers:

Nedved – Messier – Dvorak

Ciger – Lindros – Fleury

Johansson – York – McCarthy

Heisten – Malhotra – Grosek

Leetch – Berard

Ulanov – Malakhov

Van Impe – Karpa

MP's HTR Fantasy Hockey Pool Guide

I like the previous Top 50 Fantasy Player, this is more like a guide with deeper advices. I will list the players of each field, and I will tell you who could be the surprising players:

European Invasion
