Pick Six: Saturday February 11

A total of 12 games are on the Saturday schedule, so it’s not the busiest Saturday night on record. However, all of your players on Canadian teams will be action, since it is Hockey Day in Canada. The Jets, who were an American team last season, are the only Canadian team not to be facing a team north of the border, as they face off against Pittsburgh. No doubt the CBC executives were thinking Sidney Crosby when they scheduled that game!

To help you plan for the weekend:

Teams with two games: Columbus, Florida, Los Angeles, NY Islanders, NY Rangers, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Tampa Bay

Teams with no games: Carolina

All other teams play one game this weekend on either Saturday or Sunday.

The following goalies have been confirmed for Saturday (Goalie Post): Martin Brodeur, NJ; Marc-Andre Fleury, PIT; Nikolai Khabibulin, EDM; Craig Anderson, OTT; James Reimer, TOR; Semyon Varlamov, COL; Brian Elliott, STL; Steve Mason, CBJ.

Fantasy Hockey/Kukla’s Korner League Midterm Report

Let’s study the secrets of the success of… a third-place team.

Okay, so it’s not first place. But it is a 16-team league. And a team that has rattled off ten consecutive wins in head-to-head league competition, following three consecutive losses to start the season.

There is probably no better time than the All-Star break to assess the situation of your fantasy team. That is what I intend to do while I provide my midterm report for the fantasyhockey.com/Kukla’s Korner League midterm results.

Pick Six: Wednesday October 26/Thursday October 27

Here is the latest Pick Six, a goaltending-rich version that covers games for both Wednesday and Thursday. And by mentioning goaltending, it’s important to remember not to read too much into the early-season struggles of certain goalies. Remember when Marc-Andre Fleury went 1-6 to start last season and Penguins fans wondered if Brent Johnson should be the starter? Having said that, there are a few early-season goaltending waiver-wire opportunities, along with some big names that you should keep an eye on, just in case.

A Second Look at Goalies

In my previous preview of the top goalies, I had mentioned Tim Thomas, Roberto Luongo, Henrik Lundqvist, Pekka Rinne, and Ryan Miller as my top five options. Upon reflection and much debate, I discovered many other names that could be considered top 5 (or at least top 10). Many goalies are drafted in the early rounds of fantasy drafts, since top-notch starting goalies can be impossible to find on the waiver wire once the season starts. To help you find the right goalie(s), I have provided ten more goaltending options that could legitimately fall into the category of the NHL’s better starting goalies. And I promise that there will be no commercials while you read this.
