Pick Six: Saturday March 10/Sunday March 11

Is a Sidney Crosby return finally around the corner? Perhaps, but one player who has nearly the pedigree of Crosby has his own concussion issues, but is not receiving the attention that Sid the Kid is. I’ve included both players in my Pick Six for the weekend.

But first, here’s what you need to know heading into the weekend.

A total of 22 teams are in action on Saturday, while 16 teams are in action on Sunday.

Teams with two weekend games: Boston, Columbus, Carolina, New Jersey, NY Islanders, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Toronto, Washington

Teams with no weekend games: Winnipeg

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

Pick Six: Saturday February 4

If a player can accomplish the highest single-game point total since 1988, then he should at least be worthy of mention in this little blog.

On Thursday, Sam Gagner shocked the hockey world with an eight, count ‘em, 8-point game against the Blackhawks. Suddenly Sam finds his name alongside two other names that probably ring a bell – Wayne Gretzky and Paul Coffey – in the Oilers’ record book. If he happened to be in your lineup, go buy yourself a lottery ticket. If he happened to be on your bench or you “almost” picked him up from the waiver wire, hopefully you had a box of tissues nearby.

Yet Gagner has slowly trickled down the Oilers’ depth chart in recent seasons, as the Oil has drafted clone-type forwards in Jordan Eberle, Taylor Hall, and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Gagner had even been pushed down to the third line, often playing less than 15 minutes per game. Slowly he had turned into the forgotten man in the rebuilding effort - but not anymore.

I’ll return to Gagner in a moment as one of my Pick Six players for Saturday, but first here’s what you need to know for this weekend as you plan your lineup.

Pick Six: Saturday October 15

Even though Sidney Crosby is not one of my Pick Six players for Saturday, the big news of the week has to be his official clearance for contact by the Penguins. If you asked me when he will return, I would have to place the over/under at three weeks. I think he’ll be back in two weeks, but why rush him now when a return is now officially not far off?

Even though Crosby is not on any of my fantasy teams this year, I will be ecstatic to see him return. Most hockey fans will no doubt feel the same way (except for maybe Philadelphia fans, but apparently they don’t like Santa Claus either). Let’s cross our fingers … but until that day comes, let’s concentrate on what’s on the schedule for Saturday, a day in which all but two teams are in action.
