I thought he looked amazing last night. I only saw the third, but he was always in the middle of the play, he had 3 or 4 solid scoring chances, and had an insane play where he put the puck between his legs, deked around the defensman, and almost beat the goaltender.

How has Murphy looked? I know you guys have a lot of D so he probably won't make the team this year, but do you see his offensive success in the OHL translating into the NHL eventually?

Jokinen

How is Jokinen looking and who will he be playing with? I am dropping Zajac from my fantasy pool (out longer than I thought, no IR spot) and I was thinking of picking up Jokinen. Thoughts?

Looks like he'll start the season on the second line with Ruutu and Skinner. Expect 50-55 points from him.

As far as the pickup, depends on the league, but he's probably similar to Zajac in terms of production (if of course, Zajac was healthy), so it's not a bad replacement pickup...

I think so. He's proved to be quite slippery even at the NHL, which was my biggest concern (him getting worked over by NHL-sized and NHL-fast forwards). We haven't heard a ton about the coaching staff considering him for this year's roster, but it's clear that he's impressing them, otherwise he'd already be in Kitchener. It's hard to be definitive about him being on next year's roster because the only guys whose contracts are ending are defensive defensemen, but my belief is that the team will make room for him (or Faulk) by moving an offensive defenseman before next season begins (if not during this season).

Will Ruutu taking face-offs playing on a second line with Skinner? 55-60 pts is realistic for Ruutu is he play's whole season?

Yes, but don't count on many FO wins from this arrangement. He doesn't win a ton, and he's got two former centermen on his wings, so he'll take chances a lot and get thrown out of the circle a lot. And yes, 55-60 points is realistic, though I'd probably peg him for more like 20-25 goals and 25-30 assists.

Thank you.
Yeah, he wouldn't win a ton, but 300 FOW for LW( he's listed as LW in espn) is huge + we use hits as a category, so Rutuu is very effective in my league.

How's been Kaberle looking? And what your expectation about him?

P.S. Sorry for my english, i'm russian.

I expect ~40 points from Kaberle... He hasn't been great in the preseason but I have a feeling he'll at least put up points... His defense, well, that's another story...

Made Team: Yes

Until about a day ago, it looked like he'd be playing on the 1st line with Staal and Ponikarovsky, but recent speculation has him starting on the 4th line with Nash and Brent. So we really have no idea, but I'd expect top 9 minutes at least from him for the whole year. Once Larose gets healthy the lines will inevitably shuffle drastically again, so I don't expect him to stay on the 4th line for long.

Zac Dalpe

Hearing good things about this kid and was wondering if any Canes fans can give some insight on what to expect from him this year.

Expecting production that Skinner put out last year would be a stretch, but is 45 points unatainable?

A big factor will be how he's used. If he stays on the top 2 lines and sees a little powerplay time, he shouldn't have a problem getting 35-40 points. He's not a natural scoring touch. But will he be allowed to use it?

Well he apparently just went from the 1st line to the 4th line in one day. Your guess is as good as ours.

Haha. I picked that guy up last week expecting him to be a sleeper, now he's on the 4th line before the season starts? Is this one of those "as the coach I will motivate him by putting him on the 4th line" things, or is he really not that skilled? I've always thought Maurice was a little high strung but given your F depth and what people said about this kid I figured he'd be a lock for the Top 6 initially.

The last two games have been difficult to watch, both due to the lack of any streams and the lack of any offense concerning the teams. Couldn't tell you how Dalpe looked in the last two games, but games before that, he wasn't showing any reason as to why he should be on the 4th line.

Frankly, I chalk it up to Maurice being Maurice.

Dalpe was the best player in camp....for what that's worth. There was NEVER any doubt about him making the NHL this season.

hey guy's im in a 20 team league and trying to upgrade my bench it's a rotisserie league:

team is

Centre - Jonathan Toews, Logan Couture

LW - Ryane Clowe, Jussi Joikinen

RW - Phil Kessel, Bryane Little

D pietrangelo, Seabrook, Leopold, P Martin

G Carey Price, N Khabibulin

UTIL - Tyler Kennedy LW/RW

Bench - Bobby Butler RW, Nick foligno LW, Matt D'agostini RW, Brayden Schenn C

i can pick up Scott Gomez C , Mats Zuccarello LW, Zac Dalpe, Marco Sturm LW

i was thinking Gomez because he seems to be playing well with cole and Andrei Kostitsyn and is a top 6 player unlike the rest... maybe a bounce back year and drop Foligno but will that be ok to have 4 centres 3 LW?

any other thoughts or advice?

4 of 10 categories are scored by goalies anyways

Not a keeper. Also, Philip McRae was drafted 11th overall.

Jamie McBain

How was this guy in the preseason and will he suffers or benefits from the acquisition of Kaberle?

Kinda of scared for his icetime time and PP time..

Is this REAL hockey discussion or fantasy? I wouldn't have McBain on my fantasy team, no upside.

He's in danger of losing his top 6 position to Faulk. McBain is known as as low starter. Hasn't looked good at camp or in preseason games.

Id be shocked if Mcbain was the one to lose a spot to Faulk. For better or worse, Joslin and Harrison sit.

At least to start.
