Anyone interested in Jason Spezza?  I've got too many C's and need a RW or a Defenseman.  I never seem to be able to use up all the extra games that we have allotted in this league...


I'm interested Rob.  Peruse my roster and make me an offer.  Probably best to get the D guys off my roster before they get hurt.   :-X

I have to say I couldn't be happier with Ryan Smyth so far - 4G & 4A so far.  He's certainly a pleasant surprise.

Dammit - Thomas had a shutout for Boston tonite and I had him on the bench, instead picking Kiprusoff.  That was a 6pt mistake.  >:(

3rd, 6th, 9th and 10th round picks are out, two on IR, third headed that way ...

Add my 4th round pick to that mess: Savard out 4-6 weeks with a broken left foot.  Whee!

I propose 4 IR slots next year. ::)

I don't know if any of you picked Gonchar, but he went down in last night's game with St. Louis, didn't come back, and the Pens are off today so no media word I've noticed yet on the outcome.

Just incase anyone picked him and was thinking he was healthy...  he may not be.  :-\

Nix that, he's out 4 to 6 weeks with a broken wrist.  Just FYI.

Gee, whadda shock.  He's on my roster.   :'(

That would now make it:

3rd round
4th round
6th round
8th round
9th round


My 10th round pick played tonight for the first time in 10 days.

Both IR spots are full and my three bench spots are taken up by guys on IR as well.  Yippee!

Sorry Brent.

The Pens hurt without him too, I figured I'd break the news to whoever since it's not huge hockey news, but it is big locally.  However we've got Goligoski and Letang both this year, and both healthy and playing well, so it's not a HUGE concern to us, yet.

I used to be a huge Gonchar detractor but he's blossomed the last couple years...  I really felt Whitney was the better all around player, but everyone agrees that Gonchar has picked up his defensive play tremendously, plus he's a good leader whereas Whitney was not. 

I'm eating humble pie on Gonch now, and it hurts when he goes down because he QB's the powerplay.

Sheesh, without bad luck, you'd have no luck at all Brent. 

However we've got Goligoski and Letang both this year, and both healthy and playing well, so it's not a HUGE concern to us, yet.

I just added Goligoski to my roster tonight in hopes that I could find a defenseman who wants to actually score a few points.

He's a beast, and good defensively.

Paul Coffey told one of our announcers last year, "Have you seen that Gologoski kid?  Keep an eye on him, he's one of the best I've ever seen".  And everyone likens him to Coffey though we've not seen it totally yet...  He's stronger defensively than Letang though, and every bit a scorer that he is.

There ya go...  Good defensively, offensively very capable as well, and a golden gopher.

The trifecta.

Just another day in paradise.  Look in this morning to see I'm dropping like a stone, which comes as no surprise.  But the best part?  Yeah....#1 pick Alexander Semin is listed as DTD.  Now it could be minor, but do you really think I believe that right now? :-\

Three weeks into the season these picks are either IR or have missed games on DTD status:
1st round
3rd round
4th round
6th round
8th round
9th round
10th round

Well holy crap.  Kovalchuk is not, repeat NOT on my roster.  Forgive me for rejoicing in someone's else's roster loss but I feel like sharing the pain.  >:D
