Keeper Trade Prop. assistance required:

need some help.

I barely qualified for the PO's last year - finishing 6th.

I've been chasing Ryan Getzlaf all summer, but can't reel him in. He wants my only surefire thing in net, Hank Lundqvist.

It's a 12 team league, goaltending makes up about 5/12th of the scoring

I have Mike Smith, Marty Turco in net with Corey Schneider coming up.

I also have tending prospects like Mike Murphy, Thomas Greiss and P.Delmas, B.Holtby, S. Stacjer

for centers... I have Bergeron, Hanzal and Conroy and nothing good for prospect other than Brayden Schenn. Marleau has been classified as a LW by Yahoo... so no dice there.

I hope that isn't too much info and just enough - any opinions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks LF.

I offered for Jamie Arniel, Bud Holloway and Kyle Wilson. My offer was rejected.

Countered saying, I am looking for right handed centers that are still prospects. Is he not available at all?

I could replace Holloway with another prospect
.

I am choking with activated prospects hence my offer.

He has countered with: Jamie Arniel and Brian Ihnacak for Ben Hanowski.

I plan on looking for other prospects on other teams that I like before committing to trading Hanowski

What's the opinion here? BTW He would keep Ihnacak.

Sturm

Hey guys, i haven't seen Sturm in the lineup for a couple of days so i was wondering if anyone knew if he was injured. I don't follow Boston that much cause i'm a Hab fan, but i picked him in my hockey pool so now am concerned... Where do you guys see him playing this year? If I remember correctly, he was playing on the second line with Bergeron last year berfore he got injured. Thanks, and good luck with your season!

They have us doing squats at rehab. Tell him to do 10-20 of those holding 20 lb weights. Either the discomfort will be gone or he'll be on LTIR.

Hey, I'm interested in joining but am having trouble getting into the league on Yahoo Fantasy.

I tried the league # and password mentioned above, by get:

There was a problem
The league is not in pre-draft mode. (Error #209)
That league is not available. (Error #450)


Any room left??

EDIT: Looks like there are 2 open spots left. It will be my first time playing on a fantasy league, but I am definitely interested.

I had two drafts over the weekend. The first was for a Yahoo league with people from the Bruins Usenet newsgroup. Most of us aren't over on Usenet much anymore but we've been doing a league for years, so it's kind of become a tradition.

Here's who I drafted for that Yahoo league. It's a head-to-head scoring system. There were 12 teams and I had the last pick of the first round. I think this team is going to be great on PIM and it otherwise pretty well balanced.

C
Jeff Carter
Jonathan Toews
Chris Drury

LW
Scott Hartnell
Milan Lucic
Erik Cole
Chris Kunitz

RW
Shane Doan
Bryan Little
Colby Armstrong

D
Sheldon Souray
Mike Komisarek
Shane O'Brien
Mattias Ohlund
Derek Morris

G
Cam Ward
Henrik Lundqvist


My other league is over at ESPN. It's one I'm doing with people over at EHMTheBlueLine. We did a league at Yahoo last year an did it rotisserie style. This year we're doing head to head. We've also decided to make it a keeper league. We had 14 teams drafting here and I was drafting somewhere near the middle. You'll notice a lot of Bruins on my team. If I didn't see someone I really liked, I said "Screw it!" and just drafted a Bruin of that position. I think this might have been a bad idea for me. I have 7 out of my 17 players on the Bruins.

C
Jason Spezza
David Krejci
Patrice Bergeron

LW
Milan Lucic
Chris Kunitz
Kristian Huselius

RW
Blake Wheeler
Erik Cole
Drew Stafford
Joffrey Lupul

D
Zdeno Chara
Zach Bogosian
Derek Morris
Mark Stuart
Mike Komisarek

G
Evgeni Nabokov
Carey Price

EDIT:
Oh and this morning I got an email from my wife's cousin asking me to join a league he is doing.

Who has more value in fantasy circles?

Just compare their point totals the last few years and even you a Hab fan from Toronto should be able to figure it out if you think hard enough.

I'm playing fantasy hockey for the first time. The draft was tonight and while I missed out on a bunch of my targets (always right as my pick was coming up too) I'm pretty happy with my team. However, since I'm a noob I'm not really sure. Any opinions/thoughts/advice? It'd be much appreciated. Thanks!

Yahoo!
10 team head to head

Goals (G), Assists (A), Plus/Minus (+/-), Powerplay Points (PPP), Game-Winning Goals (GWG), Shots on Goal (SOG), Faceoffs Won (FW)

Wins (W), Goals Against Average (GAA), Save Percentage (SV%), Shutouts (SHO)

My team: "PK's Right Testicle"

C: Mark Savard
C: Olli Jokinen
C: Anze Kopitar

LW: Daniel Sedin
RW: Jarome Iginla
W: David Backes
W: Brad Boyes
W: Alex Burrows
W: Blake Wheeler

D: Shea Weber
D: Kevin Bieksa
D: Ryan Suter
D: Keith Ballard
D: Mathieu Schneider (out for at least the first 10 games)
D: Willie Mitchell

G: Niklas Backstrom
G: Tomas Vokoun

BN: Dan Hamhuis
BN: Daymond Langkow
BN: Brooks Laich
BN:Mark Rechhi
BN: Jonathan Quick

Obviously my team is very heavy on Vancouver, Nashville's D, St. Louis, Boston, Calgary, Florida and to an extent LA. These are all teams that I expect to do well and I think these will all be plus players. I really like my goaltending, even Quick, although my target was to have Luongo instead of Vokoun. I love my D although I wanted to get the production of Wideman or Morris in there. Sturm was supposed to be my secret weapon off the bench. In case of an early injury I already have my eyes on FA's David Moss, Dustin Byfuglien, Rene Bourque, Adrian Aucoin, Robyn Regehr, Dennis Seidenberg, James Wisniewski, and Mike Smith.

Any thoughts?

A friend from work bet me 1 dollar that Bergeron will have more points this year. I drafted Krejci on my fantasy team, and I think he will have more points, but Bergeron will be on the 1st PP.

Joseph LaMonica... your league doesn't using PIM in their scoring? That's a shame. You've got a few guys on your team that strike a really nice balance of points and PIM. Still, overall it looks like a decent team to me. You guys went with large rosters though.

Yeah, it was a custom league and the commissioner left out PIM and added an "extra line" of starters. David Backes particularly stands out in regards to the PIM, but I still like his game.

Oh yeah, and I've been meaning to say this whenever I got a chance without making a seperate post, but your avatar makes me laugh every time I see it.

Thanks! I get that remark a lot about my avatar. My dog is a funny girl.

So how come your commish left out PIM? IMO, it makes you think more about how you draft. Without PIM, there are a lot of defensemen that are useless. It also makes you think more about what type of forwards you want to have.

anybody got a league with spots left? I know it's last minute but I was hoping someone might be doing a draft tonight. I'm on the west coast though, so the later the better.

Couple of players

Going around and checking on different boards for the status of a few players on my fantasy team...

Whats the status of Mark Stuart? Did he make the team? Is he a fifth or 6 dman?

Also, Zach Hamill. How did he look in training camp? Has he been sent down?

Mark Stuart is pretty much a veteran Bruin now. He's probably a 4-5 guy who hasn't reached his ceiling.

Hamill did well in camp but he was sent down -- he needs more regular playing time but seems to have taken a step forward in development over the summer.

Many suggest M-Stu is a full fledged top-4 guy at this point, but he's been a regular for like 3 years now...so yea, he made the team.

He's a solid d-first defender, and probably the second strongest bruin behind big Z. His shot is really underrated, if he used it more he might be good for more than the 15pts he usually puts up...though he admittedly has never sniffed the Power Play.

Hammill needs to build more body mass, and improve his skating; but despite a somewhat up and down first year pro, he had a strong camp. Last cut along with Brad Marchand. His skill level is probably NHL, but his confidence and body need time to develop.

There is a fantasy hockey sticky up top, btw.
