The Goods on Fantasy Hockey
Entries with the tag: lubomir visnovsky
Friday’s draft came and went with no Rick Nash or Roberto Luongo trade… yet. For those inevitable trades to occur there’s always the free agent frenzy period and the weeks following. In other words, hockey player news during the summer seems to happen in large doses that force us into information overload, followed by long periods of dry spells which include delusional excitement over the signings of the Danny Syvrets and Brad Winchesters of the hockey world.
Here are the most significant names to change addresses on Friday, along with the resulting shifts in fantasy value.
After a five-day layoff, it’s back to fantasy hockey mode on Tuesday. All teams are back in action, with the exception of Dallas, Florida, Los Angeles, and St. Louis. With the other side of the All-Star break signaling the stretch run, roster decisions become that more important for fantasy teams who have an eye toward a league championship.
Here is your Pick Six for Tuesday, the last day in January:
Brendan Morrison, C, CHI – add/start
Even with Jonathan Toews set to return to the Blackhawks’ lineup for Tuesday’s showdown with Vancouver (ESPN), new acquisition Mo could see top-6 minutes against his former team. He recorded only 11 points in 28 games this season for Calgary, but trades more often than not increase a player’s short-term value. Morrison is expected to center the Hawks’ second line alongside returning All-Star Marian Hossa. If you have the roster space in a deep league, he’s worth a flier.
