Joe Sakic has been activated from the IR and will play tonight. TJ Hensick was sent down to make room. 

 

Alex Tanguay left the game after a few shifts. Neck injury.

 

Sergei Zubov underwent surgery to insert a screw into his foot. He will be off the ice until the end of March 

 

Alexander Radulov missed yesterday's contest with the flu. They don't play until Wednesday so he should be fine by then.

 

David Legwand was reportedly charged with DUI last week.

 

Another Florida game, another Olesz injury. This time it is his foot. When he does play, it is clear that he is progressing. But he could be a future member of the Band-aid Boy executive committee.

 

Joe Corvo's value, as I predicted when the trade went down, has shot way up now that he is 'the man' in Carolina. He had a goal and two assists last night and the team scored four times on the PP. Next year I would expect 50 points or more.

 

Dallas has removed Antti Miettinen from the big line. He is a 35-point player when not on that line and is a dropsy in keeper leagues.

 

Jochen Hecht's injury is to his leg muscle. He is day-to-day. Roy, Vanek and Gaustad were all in the lineup. More headgames by NHL teams. Not very fantasy friendly, this league, eh?

 

Sidney Crosby did not skate yesterday as originally planned and will not skate this morning. Start getting worried now - he has had five days off the ice in the last six. Did he aggravate it a little? Start assuming two more weeks - possibly three - instead of one.

 

Atlanta scratched Alexei Zhitnik yesterday. Huge disappointment this season for poolies.

 

It turns out that Wolski missed Friday's contest because he was scratched. I have been saying for two years and in both pool guides - he is too inconsistent to be as good as his fantasy value dictates. If I owned him I would have traded him long ago - people would pay a lot for this guy so I will gladly accept their overpayment.

 

Joe Sakic will be a gametime decision today.

 

Patrick Thoresen played fewer than nine minutes in his first game as a Flyer and saw just 10 seconds on the power play. I guess they weren't impressed with the big Norwegian.

 

Good article on Gilbert Brule . Let's not give up on 21-year-olds, okay? Buy-low candidate.

 

Detroit has offered Darren McCarty a contract. If accepted, expect seven or eight points and 25-30 PIMs for the rest of the season.

 

Oops. That Dan Cloutier experiment was short and not-so sweet. A desperation move on my part that set my comeback back by weeks...ouch.

 

Chuck Kobasew, out with a groin injury, is expected back Tuesday.

 

The Leafs signed Alex Steen to a two-year extension worth $1.7 million per.

 

Despite what you read and hear, I am unwavering in my belief that Mats Sundin will play his last game of the season for Toronto on Monday. His next game will be in October. In between, he will play for another team. If you didn't read my theory on Sundin, Fletcher and the Leafs, it is here .
