SUNDAY MORNING COFFEE: HUNT FOR RED LIGHT OCTOBER

Posted by ray on Sun, 2017-10-22 10:35

SMC 10/22/2017

Interesting week with some injuries to key fantasy players, some not so major and then some kinda returning soon.

Tuukka Rask goes down, as does Roberto Luongo. And then there was M-A Fleury in Vegas.  A minor scare for John Gibson, who always seems to get injured. That’s why you need to draft their backups in fantasy.  Golden rule.

Jimmy Howard-G-DET (56.4% ESPN), Will Butcher -D-NJD (57.2), Samuel Girard-D-NAS (4.5), Sean Couturier-C-PHI (16.6), Vladislav Namestnikov-LW/RW-TBL (45.9), Alex Killorn-LW-TBL (32.2), Tyler Johnson-C-TL (60.7), Dylan Larkin-C-DET (61.1), Scott Hartnell-LW-NAS (49.8).

There have been quite a few hot starts this season, so if you are one of those fantasy teams already playing catch-up, or are hit with the injury bug, here are a few players to consider for the upcoming week that may be available in your fantasy league.

SUNDAY MORNING COFFEE: HOCKEY IS BACK!

Posted by ray on Sun, 2017-10-15 11:06

OCTOBER 15, 2017

Hockey is back!  And so is Sunday Morning Coffee! 

With just over a week into the season and already things seems to be turned upside-down more than usual. Vegas as more wins (3) than Montreal and the NY Rangers combined (2).

Los Angeles is one of only 2 undefeated team at 3-0-1.  There is a Dustin Brown renaissance it seems.

You just knew that Kings G Jonathan Quick was going to rebound this year.

UNDER THE RAYDAR: 2017 SEASON

Posted by ray on Sun, 2017-10-08 12:53

It's been a while since I posted in this section, but I feel it's a very important section for those in Keeper Dynasty leagues, or deep fantasy leagues in general.  I have a few names that you should be aware of. With some teams off to a quick and explosive start, things should settle down and the cream will always rise to the top as they say.  So let's drop some 'not-so-known' names.

I was going to update the WHO'S HOT, WHO'S NOT section but with it being a short week, I'd just slip in my thoughts here.  Sort of like a hybrid SUNDAY MORNING COFFEE piece.  

DAILY PRIME: OPENING NIGHT EVE

Posted by ray on Tue, 2017-10-03 19:59

My apologies for being MIA over the last week and a half! 

We have a few signings and such so let's get down to it.

The Calgary Flames signed the ageless wonder, RW Jaromir Jagr, to a 1-year deal as had been rumored for weeks.  Even though e doesn't possess world-class speed, his control of the game is unparalleled and will help the Flames just like he helped the youngsters in Florida during his tenure there.  Don't expect anything more than 45-50 points but he will make those around him better. Good signing by Calgary.

DAILY PRIME: SEPTEMBER 7th, 2017

Posted by ray on Thu, 2017-09-07 20:33

Some quick updates...

Sam Bennett signed a 2-year contract with the Calgary Flames ensuring he would be in camp in time and ready to resume his NHL career.  Don't expect anything more than mid-30s production from the 3rd line center  Drafted 4th overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, the 3rd year NHLer is entering a breakout season but unless someone suffers a lengthy injury, Bennett will, in all likelihood, be relegated to 3rd line duty. 

W.W.O.R.D. - MATT DUCHENE: THAT 70's SHOW

Posted by ray on Wed, 2017-09-06 19:58

Where Will Matt Duchene End Up?

In this year's initial installment of What WOuld Our Ray Do?, we tackle the incessant articles revolving around Colroado Avalanche Center Matt Duchene.  The trade rumors have been persistent and consistent from right before last season’s trade deadline up until, well, a few moments ago.  The constant, daily blurb or news item that Matt Duchene is somehow, presumably, most definitely on the trading block but somehow is on and off it still depending on the day.

FANTASY PREDICTION COMPARISON

Posted by ray on Tue, 2017-09-05 21:10

I wonder how we compare to some of the big wigs in the industry.  Although our Fantasy Hockey Guide has only been around for 7 years, I have over 20 years experience in fantasy hockey. So I guess that makes me an old man!
