    Default Dobber - Ask Your Questions Now! - Easter Edition

    Happy Easter!

    Crunch time. Playoff time in a lot of leagues. Fire away with your questions. I'm at the computer for most of the day as I lay the groundwork for the Fantasy Prospects Report and jot down some notes for tonight's Ramblings, as well as set up the Interactive Playoff Draft List. So while I'm here, I'll pop onto the forum and try to help you win your final weeks


    One request - I don't get asked which goalie to start tonight. I'm no better at one-day goalie picks than anyone else. I'm better at averages - the longer term, the better. One-day guesses are just dart throws! At least for me. So your best bet is to take a poll and start your own thread on that.

    Everything else is fair game, though I likely won't have injury information you need because teams hold that stuff tight to the chest these days...

    Thanks Dobber! I've got 3!

    How do you think Dubnyk will do next year?

    How do you think Nichushkin will do next year and in 3?

    And the toughest, if Trouba does not get traded... Do you think Provorov could be fantasy relavent earlier? ( I might have to choose between them)

    Happy Easter!

    I'm in a dog fight for first in my league and my goaltending could make or break it for me. I own Rask and Mrazek and also picked up Darling recently. My opponent who I'm battling with has Holtby and Jones. Should I outright drop any of my goaltenders and pick up someone else like Smith, Allen or Pavelec for the final 2 weeks or should I trust what I have?

    Hey Dobber,

    Happy Holidays!!

    Anyway looking ahead to next week's finals (gotta win today though!!) and there are some players I want to add.

    ATM I have an open roster spot and the best available options are Reinhart, McGinn, Couterier and Rakell. In addition, I could drop Eakin or Hagelin to pick up 2 of those guys, but then I'd already be down 2-3 of my 4 adds before the week even started lol.

    McGinn and Rakell seem like great choices, but I already have Scorey and Hamp Lindholm so I'm worried that might be just a bit too Duck heavy, though they play on soft game nights and have a pretty juicy schedule. So they might not be the worst team to stack up on. Saving my adds is pretty important because my goalies are Luongo and Allen so I might have to look for some spot starts as well.

    Offensive categories are G,A,+/-,SOG,PPP,SHP,GWG.

    Any advice you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    JL

    Happy Easter Dobber,

    This upcoming week is the last week in my 1 year league (Ive gotten to the finals!) the team in my sig is the one. Now out of all those players in my sig who should I drop for a hot free agent this week Was thinking about dropping Pelly (doesn't fit with my schedule) Coture (has been bad) and Silferberg (Piri is a better option?). Who in your opinion should I drop this week and for what free agents?

    Allen on the wire btw drop Greiss for him this week?

    Thanks for all the help this year and hope you and your family have a great Easter!

    Happy Easter to you and your family!

    1) will Bobrovsky be a top 10 goalie next year?
    2) how good is J. Vesey? Better than Mantha?

    You're waiting five years on either one, but Blackwood is more talented - and Nedeljkovic is the better goalie to own in fantasy hockey (there's a difference)

    Great! Very bullish on him - 40 wins.

    How do you think Nichushkin will do next year and in 3?
    I'll say high 40s next season and then a nice little breakout into the high 60s the year after

    And the toughest, if Trouba does not get traded... Do you think Provorov could be fantasy relavent earlier? ( I might have to choose between them)
    I would take Provorov regardless. I think Trouba will be about five years away from breaking through, given how WPG is using him and their other options for offense

    I wouldn't waste time with Darling. Too up and down. Could hurt you. Whereas Allen in the odd spot start will be gold. Sure, he'll only start about three more games, but each one will be great for you and worth spot-starting.

    I'd put all my eggs in one basket and roll with the Ducks. McGinn is your best option, as he's on fire and could easily keep it up for another week or two.

    Happy Easter!

    I'll throw one at you, and it's more of an opinion question than an actual fantasy one. Just a good ole fashioned hockey question.

    Who do you think the Oilers end up moving this off-season (RNH?, Eberle?, etc) and who do you think they target in return?

    And also, what's your take on Stamkos this off-season? Do you think he re-signs in TB or is he on the move?
