SMC 3/5/2017 SEASON DWINDLING DOWN

Got my cup of coffee and ready to write on this extremely cold day in NYC!

The trade deadline came and went and in my honest opinion, it wasn’t as exciting as some past ones. 

Okay, the Shattenkirk one was a doozy, but only for the Washington Capitals, who just got even stronger.

ADD’EM 2/26/2017 THE HEAT IS ON!

The weeks are winding down and it keeps getting tougher and tougher to make up ground.  So, some fantasy teams need to take some more chances, more risk for them to close the gap and quick.  Fantasy owners must look for players that are hot and hope they remain hot.  Today’s theme is hot, hot, hot!

SMC 2/26/20017 QUICK RETURNS AT TAX TIME!

Goooooooooood morning Hockeynam!  Got my coffee and ready to go!  My apologies for not writing last week as I was away with the family on a ski weekend. Back now with about 6 weeks remaining the regular season.

Jonathan Quick is back and that means the LA Kings should be rolling on all cylinders to gain a playoff spot, barring any key injuries of course.

The Arizona Coyotes play 4 times this week so both Radim Vrbata and Martin Hanzal make for great short-term plays. In particular, the former is riding a five-game assist streak and has displayed great chemistry with the budding Max Domi. Both are rumored to possibly be traded at the deadline so no lasting fantasy solutions here...

SMC 2/12/2017 CATS REVIVAL!

Recovering from the storm the other day, it’s nice to sit with a hot mug of coffee and peruse the hockey sites!

Patrice Bergeron has turned around his season very nicely and has 9 points in last 5 games.  You just knew he would.

ADD'EM: HUBIE RETURNS EARLY

Let's begin our week's focus on solid waiver wire bait with a veteran winger who has seen his production wane over the last few years. Ever since erupting for four goals six games ago, Patrick Marleau has rewarded the San Jose Sharks with a six-game point streak and ten points.

Good morning!  Warming up my hands to a piping hot cup o’ joe!

The Caps are rolling right along and there is no stopping this locomotive.

Nicklas Backstrom doesn’t always get the credit he deserves.  It feels like he’s been around forever and he’s only 29.

SMC 1/22/2017 OLDIES BUT GOODIES!

Good day my fellow hockey addicts!  Got my fresh brewed cup of coffee and ready to tackle the day. Oh wait, that’s a football term.  I’m ready to rush up the ice!

The early afternoon tilt for Saturday was a Jet-Blue affair.  St. Louis was the one feeling blue after with a 5-3 loss.  Trouble in St. Lou?  Perhaps they are missing David Backes a little more than originally thought.

SMC 1/15/2017 HEATING UP!

Lazing on a cold Sunday morning in January with my hot cup of coffee and lots of hockey to talk about!

Hottest teams right now in the coldest part of the season; Washington, Minnesota and Toronto.  Didn’t think TO would be this competitive this quickly. The Matthews Effect!

ADD’EM 1/8/2017 CALL OF THE WILD PENGUINS?

Here we are at the midpoint of the season, so it’s all downhill from here.  And we all know what happens when we reach the crest that is the halfway mark?  The season starts to pick up speed as we near the playoffs, with teams fighting harder, playing harder and faster to earn a right to play in the dance come April.
