The Hockey Pool Question and Advice Thread (Your thread missing? Likely merged here)

Recommended Posts

Remember to pick up MA Bergeron if you need an extra D.

I'm considering dropping John Carlson but I keep thinking he's going to eventually put up big points.

I am a current GM of a fantastic keeper league. It is a unique stats league that not only includes goals and assists, but PIM, plus/minus, shots on goal, Game winning Goals, Hits and blocked shots. It is a diverse league with currently 28 GM's and require 2 more. We are in our 2nd season of the league, so it is relatively new. If you are interested in taking over one of the 2 vacant teams, you can email me at chadle87@yahoo.com. The website is http://home.cogeco.ca/~pshlhockey/. Boston and Buffalo are the 2 vacant teams without a GM, and in our innagural season, a fantasy draft was done to disperse players amongst teams.

soo it doesn't look like people really give a crap about this thread, but if anyone wants to share their thoughts on this, i'd appreciate it.

I have BRODEUR and MILLER in my pool. brodeur has been playing pretty well i guess, and i'm actually thinking about dropping miller. i just see brodeur being more steady for the dying days of the season

so, here are some goalies that are available for me: BOUCHER (PHI), BOBROVSKY (PHI), ELLIS (TBL), ROLOSON (TBL), HILLER (ANA), RINNE (NSH), NIEMI (SJS)

THANKS!!

wow i'm guessing there's not a whole lot of teams in your pool. I personally would keep Miller, but if you're really considering to drop him, then I would go for Roloson or Hiller. Roloson's been on fire since heading the bolts, and Hiller is having a pretty good season. Although the Philly goalies might get you more wins, they don't have a clearcut no.1 goalie, so you won't get as many starts.

Wow. no dude, especially the first trade. I see you're looking for goalie help. I'm pretty sure Bobby Ryan can get you a better goalie than that.

I might be interested

Also sitting in 2nd place only a few points out of first place, but I had Edler in my pool and now he is done for the season. So I wanted to try and upgrade my defense to fill Edlers spot.

I was thinking either

I get Weber and Doan for Couture and Fowler

I get better this year and the other guy gets solid rookies, I am not really keen on giving up Fowler though

Other one was

I get Burrows, Neal and Ehrhoff for Couture, Clowe and Frolik

I already have both Sedins so having Burrows would be nice.

Other people asked if I was interested in Goligoski, Liles and Carle

I want to decide this by next week sometime and this is a keeper league.

Thoughts?

Weber is a stud. I say yes for sure. and since you're looking for an Edler replacement, Ehrhoff is definately a great candidate since he plays on the no.1 PP unit. and plus you get the best team in the league's number one line. I would definately do that deal as well. Except the downside to that is that you have a lot of players from the same team, which could be a bad thing sometimes (ie. if team gets shutout, or the line is held off the scoresheet). But i would still do it.

Hey guys, any idea whether or not Kevin Poulin (G for the Islanders) has been reassigned to the AHL? He's listed as NA (not available) in Yahoo's fantasy league, but it doesn't say why.

I would just stay away from Isles goalies altogether.

Who should I drop for Nabokov?

-Neuvrith

-Lindback

-Rask

Neuvirth, easily.

Any advice on what to do with Pavelec?

He's been stinking it up lately. I've been benching him the last few games.

Oh, and someone dropped Malkin in my 3 player keeper league. I managed to get him off waivers :D The guy that dropped him is pretty much out of the playoffs and has Perry, Getzlaf, and Kovalchuk. But I would rather have kept Malkin IMO. Oh well, lucky for me I guess. I got him today and just stashed him on my IR. My 3 keepers were going to be H.Sedin, Thornton and Zetterberg, but I'm gonna keep Malkin now. Who do you guys think I should keep between Big Joe and Zetterberg? Zetterbergs having a much better year, but we all know what Big Joe can do (the only kicker is his SOG).

I give: Eric Staal, Mike Richards

I get: Steven Stamkos, Phil Kessel

Point system is pretty basic...

Goals (G) - 3

Assists (A) - 2

Plus/Minus (+/-) - 1

Penalty Minutes (PIM) - 0.5

Powerplay Points (PPP) - 1

Shorthanded Points (SHP) - 2

Shots on Goal (SOG) - 0.4

Kessel's inconsistency scares me, but I do get Stamkos...

I'd take Stamkos + Kessel, though it's a close one

Reason is because if Carolina makes the playoffs, they'll have to face a team like Tampa or Philly, which wont last too long.

Stamkos will get you a large sum of points because Goals are worth 3 and there is SOG counted.

Kessel has second most Shots in the league with 243, and Stamkos has the most PP points, and the 3rd most Game winning goals.

Yeah. This is just a regular season pool, so at this point I'm not really thinking about the playoffs...

Kessel scored tonight to, so it would be nice if that were a sign of things to come.

GM's don't seem to be interested, so it's hard to judge if this game can last.
