SUNDAY MORNING COFFEE: AHO! AHO! ITS OFF TO WORK THEY GO!

Glad to be back on somewhat of a routine again! 

Looks like RW Sebastian Aho from Carolina, not to be mistaken for the defenseman Sebastian Aho from the NY Islanders-although he may be a good one someday, seems to be heating up.  Kudos to those sticking with him through his rather slow start.  Grab him if he’s available.  The Carolina player, not the Islander one.

Chicago’s Brandon Saad has really crashed and burned since his hot start.  I believe he will start to score more consistently going forward.

SUNDAY MORNING COFFEE: TOUGH WAKING UP!

I think I said last week or the week before that wait until the 15-game mark to see where teams are positioned in the standings.  Well, we see teams like the NY Rangers and Montreal Canadiens are in more familiar territory while teams like the Las Vegas Golden Knights and New Jersey Devils are still holding onto to their early season good start.

Pavel Buchnevich is playing with a lot of confidence and hitting the twine quite regularly of late.

SUNDAY MORNING COFFEE: ESPRESSO & CAPPUCINO

Dustin Brown had a reverse resurrection.  Coming alive early in the season then dying out quickly.

Is Adrian Kempe for real? He really wasn’t that prolific of a scorer in the AHL but has 10 points in 14 NHL games this year.  I say, ride him while he’s hot, then drop him like a hot potato for the next player who is getting hot.

SUNDAY MORNING COFFEE: HUNT FOR RED LIGHT OCTOBER

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.

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!

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.
