Interview: Bernie Nicholls

March 20, 2018 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
Bernie Nicholls had a nice playoff run with the New Jersey Devils in 1993-94.
Bernie Nicholls (centre) scored twice in Game Five of the 1993-94 Eastern Conference Final.

We recently had the opportunity to talk to former NHL star Bernie Nicholls, who scored 1,209 points in 1,127 career games over 17 seasons with six different teams, mostly with the Los Angeles Kings.

Nicholls recently got involved with The Global Finance Sports Financial Exchange, a stock market powered by blockchain technology that, instead of selling shares in companies, allows investors the opportunity to buy “shares” of professional sports teams. Stock prices fluctuate based on wins/losses, draft picks and trades.

The company is headed by actor Zack Ward of A Christmas Story fame.

Nicholls told us all about the business and shared with us plenty of juicy details about his playing career. Among the highlights of our discussion:

  • How investors can use their sports knowledge to make money in this stock market;
  • Nicholls says you’ll get just as much excitement using their platform as you will gambling on games or playing Fantasy sports;
  • What was different during his historic 70-goal, 150-point season;
  • How many talented players he was fortunate enough to play with over his career, including the criminally underrated Scott Niedermayer;
  • His pet peeves in today’s game such as the little elbows to the head or cheap shots from behind; and
  • His picks for this season’s Stanley Cup champ, including his sleeper pick — the Kings.

The Wire Troll: Al Jefferson Can Still Ball

March 17, 2018 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
Brewer went off Friday for 22 points, six steals, three assists, two treys and a block with zero turnovers in 31 minutes. His three-point shooting has been off the charts lately (8-for-16 over the last five) and his touches are way up this month. Brewer has never been a star, but the veteran seemed to have bottomed out with the Lakers. Since being signed OKC, he’s mostly been used as a starter, revitalizing his career. Wasn’t Brewer just going to be a depth player for the Thunder? This has been a shock, but we’ll give him props: he knows how to win, having been a key cog for Florida’s NCAA championship back in 2007.

The Wire Troll: Nick Bjugstad on Fire in Florida

March 10, 2018 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
Playing on the top line with Panthers, who are red hot, has helped Bjugstad turn it on of late. He’s recorded points in every game so far this month, scoring four goals (all in the last two) and four assists with a whopping +10 rating. Bjugstad started ramping up his play in February, matching his season high with nine points, but he’s taken that to a whole new level this month, making him a must grab player. He’s already surpassed his game total from last season and looks poised to set a new career high in points. Bjugstad has ripped 11 shots on goal over the last two games, but his ice time has fluctuated. If he can regularly start seeing over 19 minutes of action as he did Tuesday (albeit, in an overtime game), he’ll really take off. It’s clear that Bjugstad is starting to use his massive frame (6′6″, 218) — especially large for a centre — to his advantage.

The Wire Troll: Montrezl Harrell Coming of Age For Clippers

March 3, 2018 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
Adebayo really showed us something Thursday in a blowout loss, canning 6-of-7 from the floor and 3-of-4 from the line for 15 points with 10 rebounds (including six on the defensive end) and two blocks in 30 minutes for his first double-double in nearly three weeks. The rookie hadn’t really been seeing enough PT recently to be on the Fantasy radar prior to this, but needs to be watched now given that he’s been playing at nearly a top 100 level over the last week. Note that he’ll miss Saturday’s game while dealing with a personal matter, but it’s only expected to be a one-game absence. It’s important to note that after several DNP-CDs early on, he’s appeared in every Heat game since late November. Adebayo has no outside game at all, but he did see a bit more PT in February, and if that continues, he’ll be a sneaky asset down the stretch if you need rebounding help.

The Wire Troll: Ondrej Kase on the Rise in Anaheim

February 24, 2018 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
In his return to the lineup Friday after missing over two weeks, Rutta wasted little time making an impact, scoring one goal and adding an assist while going +2. His penalty minute total has dipped each month, but he’s enjoying a very fine rookie campaign and a few more games like Friday will take him out of the minus (he’s currently -5). An UFA this summer, Rutta has plenty of incentive to finish strong, so if you need a blueliner, give him a look.
