weekes

 

As Brodeur's injury shakes the fantasy world, it is interesting to look at the New Jersey Devils schedule for that time period. If you assume he would be back to play on March 1 the Devils will have 50 games to play without counting the games he missed up until November 7. It is an even split with 25 home games and 25 road games. During that stretch they have 11 back-to-back games.

 

 

Four teams play New Jersey four times during that time the Islanders, Penguins, Rangers and Panthers. The Blackhawks Coyotes, Flames and Wild will not play the Devils during the estimated Brodeurless period.

 

On to shorter term injury replacements for your fantasy squad. Looking at a team's schedule may help your chances of finding a good one. Here are some of the high and low ratings for teams over a two, three and four week period starting November 7. The rating is shown in brackets.

 

Two weeks

High ratings: Canadiens (8.19), Capitals (6.95), Hurricanes (6.92)

Low ratings: Predators (4.45), Blues (4.19)

 

Three weeks

High ratings: Canadiens (11.25), Hurricanes (11.02)

Low ratings: Wild (7.80), Predators (7.69), Blackhawks (7.60)

 

Four weeks

High ratings: Canadiens (15.56)

Low ratings: Senators (10.51), Blackhawks (10.34)
