Is this the final dead hockey Sunday of 2008? Hockey drafts are starting to take place now, but the hockey news is still slow. That should pick up when training camps open. All that's out there now is gossip - hockey fans and hockey writers gossiping like a group of old ladies over tea. Schneider to LA, Sundin to wait until Jan. 1, Murray to San Jose, Shanahan 'not' going to Anaheim, zzzzzzzz bring on the games!!
The three-tiered DobberHockey roto-league opens this week with the Expert's Division kicking things off with their draft. All the DobberHockey contributers are involved, plus the two winners from last year's Pro Division. The competitors: Dobber, Angus, Miller (Comish), Ma, Fergusson, Maltais, Goldman, Status, Notch, and from the forum Lanky, Doulos and Repent Tokyo. Results will be posted in the Fantasy Guide, along with my round-by-round analysis, thought process, and strategy.
I also will begin my weekly stint on the Bill Watters Show on Tuesday at 5:40pm on AM640 Toronto.
The Fantasy Guide has been updated as of yesterday. Tell me something - does that fantasy hockey magazine that you saw at the newsstand have the fantasy repercussions of the Meszaros trade or the McCabe trade? Adjustments in the projections for McCabe, Van Ryn, Kubina, Ballard, Carle, Picard and Meszaros? The answer is no, because those magazines went to print in the middle of July. How do I know this? I wrote for two of them. Open up The Hockey News Ultimate Pool Guide and flip to the back page. The article there, The Contrarian Pick, was written by Darryl Dobbs. Now open up the Score Forecaster to the contens page and look at the list of contributors. There's that name again, Mr. Dobbs - aka Dobber. So now you know you can trust my reputation and experience. Spend the 10 bucks, it will be well worth it. SEE HERE for more details.
