    Default Erik Cernak

    No mention of him in the 2018 Prospects Guide and only says that hes been cut in the Fantasy Guide.

    Hes putting up great multi-cat numbers and am I wrong to think he can be like Gudas when Gudas was good?

    I had this same thought and added him. Gudas wrecked my league for two seasons in TB so this should be good.

    He was pretty much a trade throw-in when the Bolts moved Bishop to LA. He probably even surprised himself when he had 2g and 5 a in 9 games to start this year in Syracuse since he'd not put up much offensively in past years. Anyway when Stralman went down with injury Cernak was called up and continues to impress. He and McDonagh pair well together and I've mentioned it before, his $700k contract next year practically guarantees him a spot in the line-up. I hope you're right about his Gudas potential.

    He's certainly earning his spot. Considering he was a 2nd round pick, it's not like he's really coming from nowhere but still nice to see the progression in his game.

    have to like whatevers going on with tampa's scouts because they keep finding gems .

    get their core pieces locked up and continue to draft well so cheaper guys on elc's can fill the void with success regularly

    I was always a big fan of Cernak for real life purposes. He's been showing more than expected offensively, though. Had to dig up a couple of my old posts about Cernak.

    This one is from August 2015:
    If you want high offensive upside with risk involved, then go with Saarijarvi. But if you want more of a sure thing and good peripherals but not much offense, go with Cernak.
    This one is from February 2017:
    I'm not so sure about Dahlen being better than Cernak. Cernak is a really good prospect as well. Not for fantasy hockey purposes obviously but for real life hockey purposes. At worst I'd say that Cernak is equal to Dahlen for real life value, and considering how highly D-men are valued in the NHL, his real life value could actually be considered to be higher.
    These comments actually look pretty decent now.

    To clear this part up, the guides favor points leagues because they still represent the majority of leagues out there. Cernak doesn't have any offensive upside.

    Sadly, Cernak was a Kings discovery that Dean Lombardi foolishly traded away in the horrible useless Ben Bishop deal that resulted in Deano's overdue dismissal. Kings could really use Cernak right now.

    interesting that he goes that far back (kings system) and eventually makes his way to the bigs.

    Meh, it’s not a big deal, it wasn’t my intention to callout the guides. Not really sure your post does the guides justice though because you have Dmen like Sautner and Graves in them along with Draft Advice that commonly says “Do not draft unless in Hits, Blocks or PIMs leagues”. If he’s not in the guides, we all know the Dobber Community will find him and share him first.

    I just wanted more info on this guy that seems like he has the potential to win some weeks on his own...like Gudas of old.

    Should I trade my Drake Caggiula for Erik Cernak? It's a 31 team dynasty league where we keep players until they become NHL UFAs or we trade them. The league uses NHL sized rosters (12F, 6D, 1G each week with up to 25 on pro roster and unlimited farm roster) and NHL AAV and the NHL salary cap. We count G, A, +/-, hits, takeaways, blocked shots, PP TOI, PK TOI and faceoff for centers.

    Current Roster
    C: Carter, Turris, Sissons, Bellemare
    W: Hall, Nugent-Hopkins, M Johansson, Jaskin, Granlund, Oshie, Gourde, Coleman
    D: Burns, Chara, Lindholm, A Larsson, Lindholm, Butcher, Heed

    Farm
    F: Boyd, Kuraly, Caggiula, Barber, Fasching, Suomela, Phillips, Steenbergen, Soderlund, Popugaev
    D: M Benning, Djoos, Soucy, Dotchin, Bouramman
