I'm happy with my team.. though that could fall apart quickly if I get off to a slow start like last year...

I've got three quality guys on IR for 3-4 more weeks and two more guys who are not playing (or getting way less minutes than usual) due to minor injuries (groin, calf strains).   :'(

I really don't want to see 3-4 of my starters go down to injury again, that was way not cool.    >:(

Don't the teams usually show up right after the draft?  Everything is blank when I try to see them.

You should be fine today.  If you were looking yesterday, your roster doesn't show until the following day on the yahoo scheme.  You can see it, but it's listed for the 27th going forward.  When you look at the 26th (day of the draft) nothing appears to be there.  I do that with every draft in every sport going WTF? until I realize I have to look at the next day.

Weird - all my football teams this year showed up right away.

No big deal though.

Okay, I'm a little confused again... on my Yahoo page it shows that Cammalleri and Visnovsky have games today.  On the Stat Tracker, it looks like they've already put up a bunch of points which is great.  But, it also shows that my entire team has games tonight except for Cole and Bouwmeester.

Are some teams still playing pre-season while others are playing real games?


(Edit:  Nevermind on that 'bunch of points' thing - looks like Cammalleri had a short handed goal taken away from him.  >:( )

Two games in England (Kings vs Ducks) that are regular season, today/tomorrow.  Everyone else is playing pre-season games still.  So (obviously) only Ducks/Kings will accumulate points this weekend.  Other regular season games begin Wednesday with a full slate next Saturday.

I admittedly don't follow hockey as closely as I'd like to, but some teams playing preseason while others are playing games that counts seems bizarre to me.

Booo.  Heatley signed a contract extention tonight :-\  I'm happy for the Sens, but I like players in contract years.  He did ok tonight though, so I'll live with it.

OK, you lost me.  Is an extension somehow different?

No, just crappy spelling on my part.  Extension. 

Anyway, my general rule for players in professional sports is that if they're going to be a free agent at the end of the season, they tend to play harder so they get a better contract.  Guys that get contracts tend to relax a bit (many of them, not all) and maybe underperform.  I was sort of hoping that Heatley would go without a contract extension this year meaning he'd test the free agent waters or Ottawa would have to pay him even more.

I had two before the real season started, that was nice.

Why would I trade Sidney Crosby for Anze Kopitar?

Am I missing something or is that a really lopsided offer?
