    Hi there, My name's mike and I am from Boston,MA I have been following hockey for close too two decades. I have no real favorite team. I am more of a stats and trends kind of guy. That is not to say that I go just purely on stats. I know the keepers in the league and the underachievers.

    So I have some free time and decided to help some Yhoo Hockey fans out. Poset your questions ehre and Ill be sure to reply ASAP.
    I will have thorough explanations to all my responses. With numbers and Exc.

    • I'd love your advice!

      Here are my 5 rostered goalies.
      I know. FIVE? Drafting error of a rookie manager.

      W-L-OTL / SV% / GAA / SO

      Henrik Lundqvist (NYR - G) 8-5-1 SV% .918 GAA 2.52 SO 1

      Jaroslav Halak (Mon - G) 5-2-0 SV% .893 GAA 2.85 SO -

      Jose Theodore (Was - G) 3-2-4 SV% .907 GAA 2.92 SO -

      Marty Turco (Dal - G) 4-2-3 SV% .917 GAA 2.26 SO 1

      Cam Ward (Car - G) 2-7-3 SV% .898 GAA 3.07 SO -

      I think that Lundqvist is the easy keeper.
      How would you rank the other 4 in order to keep and who is going to be a bust?

      I need to cut 2 or 3 to start making up some offense in the non-goalie catagories.


    • Hi

      Right now I have Smith who is on fire, but I just can't fit him in my line up and concidering packaging him in a trade. Also I have 2 centers on the bench (Spezza and Pavelski who should make my top 2 since Kesler is a machine these days) ( I would like a few option since I won't trade with team a head of me in ranks)

      C -Ryan Kesler
      C- Antione Vermette (filler until eithe Spedza or Pavelski is back)
      D-Dunca Keith
      D-Kyle Quincey
      D-Jason Demers
      D-Zach Bogosian
      BN-Joe Corvo
      BN-Ryan Smyth (I put him last week and he burned me and now thsi week he shows up, argh)
      IR-Joe Pavelski

      G-Ilya Bryzgalov
      G- Chris Mason
      BN- Jose Theodore

      My Goaltending won me alot but it feels a bit shaky. My Head to Head loss are mostly in Goals, +/-, PIM and PPP.

      Overall right now I'm doing good in my league (ranked 3) but that's after playing againts the bottom feeders in my league and having the best team bashing each other a few times.

      Since FW is key in my league, once Pavelski comes back, I fear Marleau will get alot less FW which will hurt me alot.
      What would be your sugestion on my roster? Wait it out, Bench Kane for Smyth? Trade either Spezza or Pavelski for a power play D man?


    • i have Toews (DTD) Hossa (IR) Kovie (IR) wondering if i should pick up any of the good FA's aval. in my league.

      the FA's are Samuelson Plekanak Peverly Borrows MoulsonOkposo dubinsky. Thats the top ^ available i am 2nd in my 12 team roto league and 12 points back of first.

      would it be smart to pick someone up or just wait and be patient

    • my team is 3 and 0 (CBS league) but i still think my team can be better. i was gunna offer my zetterberg, brad richards and cam ward for his M.A. fleury and kopitar. Note goals are worth more than assists and richards is on my bench. my team looks like this:
      Marleau F
      Cammalleri F
      Parise F
      Perry F
      Penner F
      Zetterberg F
      Boyle D
      Phaneuf D
      Erhoff D
      Barker D
      Ward G
      Lundqvist G
      Richards Bn
      Selanne Bn
      Bieksa Bn
      Hiller Bn

      Another offer is maybe richards, penner and ward for fleury and kopitar. This way i trade them while they are hot and get to keep zetterberg. Another trade i know is in my favor but am not sure he will accept. My zetterberg, penner, richards and bieksa for his crosby, Alfredsson and doughty. would this even possibly get accepted? any help is greatly appreciated. thanks.

    • Hey I am winning my league as of now my team is:
      C Joe Thronton
      C Henrik Sedin
      LW Alex Ovechkin
      LW Brendon Morrow
      RW Justin Williams
      RW Ales Hemsky
      D Aucoin
      D Chara
      D Visnovsky
      D Empty
      Bench van Remsdyk
      Bench Gonchar (IR)
      Bench Weber (hurt)
      IR Hossa
      G Thomas
      G Pavelec
      G Raycroft
      Empty roster spot

      I am dead last in PIMs just dealt Khaberle and Alfredsson for Chara
      Now I got an offer: I deal Hossa, I get Pronger and Sammeulsson.
      This helps my PIMS and once my D is healthy I can deal one of em.
      Does dealing Hossa make this worth it. I am leading G A PPP and SOG, middle of the pack in Gstats and dead last in PIMs and 3rd in +/-. What do you think?

    • offered a trade. my dusitn penner for his alex kovalev. Penners had a good start, and kovalev a slowo ne. do you think there production will change ?

    • How does my team look?

      12 team H2H

      C- Malkin, Datsyuk, Kesler
      LW- Hartnell, Ericksson, Michalek
      RW- Semin, Kessel, Hemsky
      D- Boyle, Niedermayer, Erhoff, Doughty
      G- Lundqvist, Anderson, Khabibulin

      How does my team look and what upgrades need to be made? I'm not too sold on my LW as a whole.

    • Tim Thomas and David Krejci for Devin Sentoguchi and Pascal Leclaire.

      Who wins this trade?
