No Goalie Starters 10/18/2009


Hey guys,

So there are no games tonight but I thought I would take this time to address my loyal following.  It has always been my dream to both help people and write about sports, with nhlhotstove I am able to do both and I cannot tell you how enjoyable it is. 

I am committed to checking every possible source from every team in order to get it right and so far I think that this has been acheived, at least with 98% accuracy.  I want to thank everybody who has visited for their support and would like to encourage anyone and everyone to spread the word.

In the upcoming couple of weeks there will be some changes.  I plan on moving the site over to nhlhotstove.com, which is reserved and currently under construction.  The new site will not only be goalie starters but trade rumors, in-depth analysis, weekly and monthly articles  as well as fantasy advice. 

Check out the new layout here, and check back bright and early tonight/tomorrow for your starters tomorrow!

Thank you all for your support and feel free to leave some feedback.

Quick Picks – Week of 10/5/2009


Quick Picks will be a weekly feature here at NHL Hot Stove.

Quick Picks lists the top players that are 50 percent or less owned and what makes them valuable to your fantasy team.

Wojtek Wolski:  Wolski just barely makes the cut at 43%, however his role on the top line in Colorado will surely raise that.  As long as Paul Stastny stays healthy, Wolski has value.

Brandon Dubinsky, Vaclav Prospal:  See Gaborik, Marian.  Seriously, this line is in great shape and again if Gaborik can maintain his health these two will be just fine.

James Neal:  This promising sophomore looks to improve on his impressive 24 goals just a year ago.  He already has three playing on a line primarily with Brad Richards and Loui Eriksson, not bad company if you ask me.

Ryan Whitney:  Just under 30 percent owned.  He hasn’t gotten much hype after being shipped out west but I feel he should regain the form that labeled him a keeper just 3 years ago.

Drew Doughty:  Doughty has been the top D-man in LA to start the year and don’t look for that to end anytime soon.  Playing heavy minutes with guys like Frolov, Kopitar, Brown and Ryan Smyth should keep up his statistics.  Not bad for a #4 or even a #3.

These five should produce more than draft favorites Ryan Clowe or Steve Montador, but I would consider most of these guys quick fixes who should be ridden often and early and then most likely discarded should their circumstance change.
