Fantasy Guide is updated through September 01. At the end of the Anaheim Ducks section, there is a 60% off coupon code to pick up the DobberFootball fantasy guide and/or playbook. It makes the football stuff cost less than "chump change".

Jeff Angus takes a look at why the lockout will benefit the Dallas Stars here. It's a nice little series of articles he's doing, here are the others he has done so far:

Lockout Beneficiaries, Part I: Long Island

Lockout Beneficiaries, Part II: Philadelphia

Lockout Beneficiaries, Part III: Vancouver

In case you missed my series on Puck Daddy over the past week, here are the links:





Free Agents

Mile High Hockey wonders if Jamie McGinn can top 20 goals again in the year ahead. They smartly answer 'no', but leave the door open with a few reasons for hope. Keep in mind, there are six forwards ahead of him for power-play time. A great guy to have on the third line, adding an extra dimension to the offense - 15 or 17 goals from a third liner with no PP time is a huge boost. But I don't think I'd draft him before a bench round.

How good will the AHL be in October? Think of the players who will play in that league. Hell, think of Minnesota's farm team in Houston. Mikael Granlund, Brett Bulmer, Charlie Coyle, Johan Larsson, Jason Zucker and I'm not sure but I think Zach Phillips could be eligible as well - he turns 20 on October 28. I think Jared Spurgeon and Marco Scandella are eligible as well - but since Spurgeon didn't see AHL time last year…I'm not certain about him. I'll look through the rules on this one later today, or maybe a reader who knows offhand can post a note in the comments and I'll update this blurb accordingly. The point is - AHL quality skyrockets.

In case you missed it Saturday, Rich Dillon runs through some Hobey Baker candidates over at DobberProspects.

... I'm hoping we get some Binghamton games up here this season on Sportsnet.

the roster will be pretty damn good with Zibanejad, Silfverberg, Stone, Da Costa, Lehner, Cowen, Wiercioch, Prince, etc.

OHL/CHL Dont forget that our CHL leagues will benefit greatly too. I've caught Galchenyuk, and Faksa in OHL preseason action and both will dominate this year. Big, confident and well rounded players who ooze confidence. Also caught Tampa's Namestnikov in action and continue to question his NHL likelihood. He is very skilled but doesnt bring it enough comsistently for me to get excited...yet. He will be playing in the AHL this year too
