Got some time on your hands? Why not build a roster tree for your favorite hockey team, much like Fear the Fin did here! Every player on the squad and where they came from. Bet you didn't know that Pat Falloon actually turned into, in a roundabout way, Jamie McGinn!


It’s looking like Bud Holloway, a Kings’ prospect with some upside, may sign a deal to play in Sweden next season. After losing Moller, and probably Voynov if he doesn’t make the team (although I think he will – hint hint fantasy guide, ahem), it is clear that some of the great prospects in their system are getting a little anxious about their lack of opportunity. Pittsburgh and Boston may soon get this problem as well. Sometimes it’s okay to not sign the Ponikarovskys or the Dupuis’ of the world, and save a spot for the 23-year-olds to fight over.


I think people are 50/50 on loving/hating the new Jets logo. I like it, and I like the color scheme. Some of the objections I see make me laugh. I have two thoughts that come to mind on that: 1) Some are even naming what the model of jet is. Who, older than the age of 12, knows that stuff? And 2) If the jet on the logo is too much like the army or like Air Canada…what would you suggest be on the logo of a team named the Jets? Monkeys?


Andrew MacDonald, who underwent surgery for a torn labrum, is working towards a full recovery in time for training camp. He’s a Band-Aid Boy though, and I would be surprised if he made it to 70 games.


Stefan Elliott, rookie of the year? That’s Adrian Dater’s early pick. Can’t really come up with any big argument on that call, but he is one of a dozen for sure.


Nate Gerbe, from Sabres Nation, the tenacity here is fantastic, starting at around 5:12 …




Keep firing me YouTube clips!

Holloway Holloway, shout out to Wapella SK, has indeed signed to play for Skelleftea in the Elitserien. The same team Moller is playing for next year.

... The Canucks have signed Byron Bitz..

And I posted a link and call-out to CDC to made a canucks roster tree so it will almost definitely get done. The first few posts are probably going to attack me for not making it myself but then someone will make one.

... Huuuuuge shocker that Adrian "Biggest Homer Beat Writer In The History Of Sports" Dater thinks Stefan Elliott will win the Calder. He can't possibly get more predictable.

Jets logo and kids I do not like the logo and its because I think the retro look is so nice. I think they shoulda went back to the old one.

I personally think teams try to keep old spirits alive too much. I like to see new blood come into the league. I also think they recycle the same old coaches over and over and I think it would be nice if teams would give some new blood a chance.

Off Topic Question Oh man, I'm antsy to get my hands on the Dobber Fantasy Guide.
Why isn't it August 1st yet... are we there yet, are we there yet, are we there yet?

Any chance there could be a "private forum" where those of us that buy the guide can go and discuss the numbers and comments? I would really enjoy this!

... I have a feeling Boston and Pittsburgh are content winning 2 of the last 3 Stanley Cups and aren't too worried about the possibility of losing a few prospects. Then again, the Pens/Shero have a nice track record of giving spots to players on merit no matter age (Staal, Letang, Kennedy to name a few), and they LOVE to have an unheralded/undrafted player or two make the team out of nowhere each season (Lovejoy, Letestu, Conner, etc).

... I like the Jets new logo as well - but the color scheme...? That's already the FIFTH team going with RED, BLUE, WHITE... MTL, NYR, CMB, WSH - and now WIN as well. Maybe hommage of American teams to the Stars and Stripes but why a Canadian team as well? I don't get it.
