DAILY PRIME- JULY 10, 2014: DUCKS SNAG HEATLEY;ARBITRARY LEAFS

Posted by steve on Thu, 2014-07-10 07:34

Former 50-goal scorer Dany Heatley has found a new home as the Anaheim Ducks have signed him to a one-year/$1M deal. The 33-year old has been on a downward spiral since his first season for San Jose, where he recorded 39 goals and 82 points in 09-10'. His 28 points for Minny last seasons allowed the Ducks to snag him at a discount price, giving them another veteran addition to possibly round out the top-six.

DAILY PRIME- JULY 8, 2014: TYLER MYERS TO DETROIT?

Posted by steve on Tue, 2014-07-08 07:39

Interesting article from The Detroit Free Press a few days ago, suggesting that the Red Wings are heavily interested in trading for hulking Buffalo defenseman Tyler Myers. While this is pure speculation at this point, Detroit's failure to land an impact blueliner during free agency should have them seriously considering other options.

DAILY PRIME- JULY 5, 2014: FANTASY FALLOUT FROM LATE UFA SIGNINGS

Posted by steve on Sat, 2014-07-05 11:10
  • Maybe the most underrated acquisition after the first wave of key free agents were signed, was winger Radim Vrbata being inked to a two-year deal by Vancouver. The 33-year old was courted by many NHL clubs looking for a proven top-six scorer and should have plenty of "gas left in the tank" in his new home north of the border. Fantasy owners should expect a rebound from Vrbata, considering he was signed with the explicit purpose of helping the Sedin twins revitalize the Canuck's slumping power-play.

DAILY PRIME- JULY 3, 2014: NOT MAKING A CASE FOR NISKANEN

Posted by steve on Thu, 2014-07-03 10:17

As we enter the third day of free agency, most of the coveted UFA's have been signed and whisked away by the highest bidder, including defenseman Matt Niskanen. He was signed by Washington to the tune of a 7-year/$40.25M deal. However, I need to issue a word of caution to all fantasy owners who think that such a financially lucrative signing automatically signals Niskanen's ascent to the upper echelon of fantasy d-men.

DAILY PRIME - JULY 2, 2014: THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE UGLY and THE MAYBE

Posted by ray on Wed, 2014-07-02 13:23

At the end of the Stanley Cup finals all eyes turn towards the NHL Entry Draft and then soon after, the free agency period that begins at noon on July 1st.  Teams, after just completing their season either by being one of the 14 teams not making the playoffs, or those who fell short during their quest for the coveted Cup, know where they stand in regards to the top NHL teams.  Playoff teams, and non-playoff teams alike, take stock of their team makeup and plan accordingly knowing what will be needed in the future and what their immediate needs.  Future, and perhaps some current, Read more about DAILY PRIME - JULY 2, 2014: THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE UGLY and THE MAYBE

DAILY PRIME- JULY 1, 2014: FREE AGENCY NOTES

Posted by steve on Tue, 2014-07-01 14:10
  • D Anton Stralman signs with the Tampa Bay Lightning for 5-years/$20M.
  • Great low-risk addition as the Devils sign the talented, but oft-injured Martin Havlat for a one-year/$1.5M deal. Hasn't been a fantasy force in many years, but is well worth a late-round gamble in most drafts.

DAILY PRIME UPDATE - JUNE 30, 2014: PARENTEAU BECOMES A HAB; GAGNER WEST

Posted by ray on Mon, 2014-06-30 14:58
  • The Minnesota Wild have been in contact with impending free agents Thomas Vanek and Jarome Iginla. The Austrian sniper has been strongly linked to the Wild because of family roots in Minny, but Iginla could be more helpful for a strong playoff push in 14-15'. Either addition would be firmly entrenched on the top power-play, so there would be fantasy implications.

DAILY PRIME- JUNE 30, 2014: FEW DRAFT NAMES TO CONSIDER

Posted by steve on Mon, 2014-06-30 05:39

Not the most memorable NHL Entry Draft I have ever covered, but there are a few players chosen that could make a fantasy impact in the near future. Obviously, we won't stray far from the first few picks, but there are two names drafted outside the top 10 that warrant plenty of attention.

DAILY PRIME - JUNE 27, 2014: SIGNED AND TONIGHT'S DRAFT

Posted by ray on Fri, 2014-06-27 13:46
  • The St. Louis Blues have signed C Patrik Berglund to a 3-year deal ending speculation that he would be sent off to Ottawa in any type of Jason Spezza trade.  Perhaps there are other players that could be substituted in any attempt to acquire the star Senator.  Perhaps we will find out by tonight’s NHL  Entry Draft.

DAILY PRIME - JUNE 25, 2014: REAPING THEIR REWARDS

Posted by ray on Wed, 2014-06-25 17:00
  • Marian Gaborik signed a 7-year deal with the Los Angeles Kings, clearly benefiting from the chemistry he built with C Anze Kopitar after being acquired at the trade deadline.  Gaborik finished the Stanley Cup playoffs with 22 points, 14 of those were goals which led the playoffs.  Gaborik has always been known as a prolific scorer, but he is also known for getting injured quite often.  That’s why the 7-year deal is a rather risky investment.  If he stays healthy, and that’s a big IF, and shows the kind of chemistry with Kopitar that he displayed upon h

DAILY PRIME - JUNE 23, 2014: LET THE TRADES BEGIN!

**The Philadelphia Flyers sent LW Scott Hartnell to the Columbus Blue Jackets for Center R.J. Umberger and a 4th rounder in 2015.  Hartnell goes to a team that could use his leadership qualities while Umberger returns to where he started his NHL career.  The question about Umberger is how will he be used considering the Flyers are set down the middle?  This trade doesn't make any sense to me.
