Fantasy Hockey Roundtable: Struggling Centres

December 20, 2009 | by Steven Ovadia | Comments (0)
Olli Jokinen is struggling for the Calgary Flames.
Olli Jokinen is making plenty of Fantasy owners frown as well.

This week’s Fantasy Hockey Roundtable was right up my alley — multiple choice: “Which of the following struggling centres is most likely to find his scoring touch by the end of the season? The least likely?”

The centres to select from were Pavel Datsyuk, Vincent Lecavalier, Eric Staal, Olli Jokinen, and David Krejci.

Here’s how I weighed in:

My money is on Vincent Lecavalier regaining his scoring touch mostly because it seems coach Rick Tocchet is coaching game-to-game, trying to keep his job. I think a new coach will ignite Lecavalier. And if the Lightning happen to move Lecavalier, the change of scenery will also probably do wonders for his stats. So basically, left to his own devices, I don’t think Lecavalier will hit 15 goals. But given how unstable things seem to be in Tampa, I think any change could inadvertently help Lecavalier score.

I don’t think things will turn around for Eric Staal. He’s got no one around him in Carolina and you can see it in his numbers. Also, perhaps more interestingly, Staal is getting plenty of shots off, so it’s not like he doesn’t have the opportunity to score. The shots he’s taking just aren’t lighting the lamp. And that seems to signal he might have lost a step or two.

Fantasy Hockey Roundtable: Drop Them While They’re Hot

December 13, 2009 | by Steven Ovadia | Comments (2)
The hot player I’m considering dumping is Stephen Weiss from the Florida Panthers. He’s coming off a December 2 hat trick and has five goals in his last five games. He’s got 13 goals and 11 assists in his first 31 games. Weiss is having a career season. Amazingly, he’s never scored more than 20 goals in a season and he’s never had more than 48 points. One school of thought says Weiss will continue to sizzle, but I’m guessing, as the Panthers continue to struggle, his production will return to his usual low-to-average levels. There’s nothing in his history to suggest he’s about to evolve into an offensive superstar. Weiss is doing well right now, and some Fantasy owners are probably cashing in on his recent hot streak, but I’m betting this is all just an illusion.

Fantasy Hockey Roundtable: Waiver Favours

December 5, 2009 | by Steven Ovadia | Comments (0)
His pace through 21 games was 16 points and 133 PIMs, which was far behind last years total of 54 points and 165 PIMs. With six points and four PIMs in his last four games, Backes looks to have turned the corner and he could break the 45-point and 150-PIM barriers again. His RW status is also bonus as it is the hardest position to fill.

Fantasy Hockey Roundtable: Whose D Reigns Supreme?

November 23, 2009 | by Steven Ovadia | Comments (0)
Jovo finished last season with just 36 points in 82 games. It was a decidedly disappointing season for him and I expected it to continue. But this season, he has 13 points in his first 16 games and a 15-goal campaign doesn’t seem out of reach.
