I’d like to start off by saying thank you for the amazing feedback in regard to last month’s Roto PDF (Volume 3.0). It is much appreciated and fuels the flame to bring another collaboration of sorts down the road. That said, with the lockout in full effect, this month’s guide will focus on some odds and ends in the hockey world.
Recently, DobberHockey had its experts draft and boy, was it a dandy. The competition was great, the jokes were flying, and for a few hours, it really did feel like we had a season around the corner. This time, each manager handed in a report on their thoughts on the draft, their team and the opposition. If you missed it, check out Part I, Part II, Part III and Part IV.
As for the Entry Divisions, all leagues have started their respective discussion threads in the DobberHockey forums, and you can find them here. Well respected forum member, Pengwin7, went one step further and created a Top 50 Players Report based on the draft pick average. This is a great reference check.
In other news, the DobberHockey team proudly welcomes Rick Roos (Holding Court) and Terry Campkin (Geek of the Week) to the fold. If you missed their work thus far, click on their names above.
Wondering about the NHL players playing overseas (and for farm teams)? DobberHockey has you covered: lockout player tracker.
This month features the top 25 players who excel at A / +/- and PIM / PPP, several player profiles and my Trade Fever influenced final thoughts.
This Friday (10/19), I will be attending the Hamilton Bulldogs home opener via press pass, acquired through DobberHockey & DobberProspects. Over the course of the season, NHL or not, I will report on the attended AHL games.
