While the June Edition of the Top 100 may not have changed that dramatically since last month, the spotlight is turned to an excellent piece on how to “Avoid Rebuilds – Keeping a Contender on Top” by DobberProspects contributor Eric Daoust (@DH_EricDaoust).
“There are so many reasons to avoid rebuilds. Generally, they are executed poorly. How often have you seen a GM try to do a rebuild, only to lose interest and eventually quit? How many times have you seen a GM move a guy in his prime just to get prospects under 20 years of age?”
If that sounds familiar, you will love the read.
Congratulations to the Los Angeles Kings and the Norfolk Admirals for their record setting performances. The Kings won the Stanley Cup as the lowest seeded team in league history, while the Calder Cup champs won 43 of their last 46 games played, including a regular season 28 game win streak. Both Cups were the first in each of their respective team history.
The NHL Entry Draft list is set, barring trades, meaning Dobber’s 2012 Fantasy Prospect Report now features an in-depth mock draft of the first three rounds by prospect guru Brendan Ross.

If you haven’t checked out Jeff Angus’ blog (Angus Certified), you are missing out on some gems like this recent article regarding advanced statistics. Like Jeff, I also believe that it is only a matter of time before fantasy hockey pools start using these statistics. Understand them, and get ahead of the competition!
