Pirri's potential piqued interest of Panthers' Tallon

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 2:20 PM / NHL Insider

Alain Poupart - NHL.com Correspondent

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Almost five years later, Dale Tallon remains a fan of Brandon Pirri.

In his last year as general manager of the Chicago Blackhawks, Tallon selected Pirri in the second round of the 2009 NHL Draft. Sunday, he acquired him for the Florida Panthers in a trade for a 2014 third-round pick and a 2016 fifth-round selection.

Pirri may not have panned out in Chicago, but Tallon likes the 22-year-old center's upside.

"I think it's a great move for our long-term future," Tallon said. "We're adding some tremendous knowledge and skill. [Our] hockey IQ has increased dramatically with this acquisition."

The Front Line: Blues-Sabres swap may spark moves

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 12:00 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Matt Cubeta - NHL.com Fantasy Insider

Last week I addressed the NHL Trade Deadline from a fantasy perspective with a three-part series, breaking down players that could be traded and how it affects their fantasy value, plus some buy-low and sell-high fantasy candidates.

Since that time, two relatively fantasy-relevant forwards have been traded: Chris Stewart and Steve Ott.

Prior to the trade, Stewart had been ranked 89th among my forwards. Now a member of the Buffalo Sabres, Stewart slips down to No. 96 in my top-100 forward rankings. Of course moving from one of the best teams in the NHL to the team that scores the fewest goals per game (1.93) is going to hurt his value.

Stewart had been struggling with the Blues and was even demoted to the fourth line, so the fact he's now a top-six forward in Buffalo is the main reason he still remains within the top-100. He's actually ranked 119th among all players in Yahoo leagues, thanks largely in part to his 112 penalty minutes, which is the eighth most in the NHL. But outside of his PIMs value, there hasn't been much reason to own him in fantasy leagues since the new year -- Stewart has just two goals and four points in his past 20 games.

Owned in 49 percent of leagues, stick with Stewart for now to see if he can put up some more points with the Sabres while continuing to provide plenty of penalty minutes. On Monday, he skated on one of the team's top lines with Cody Hodgson and Matt D'Agostini -- he finished with a minus-2 and one shot on goal in 17:25 of ice time. His rating is sure to take a hit and if the points don't start to come within his next four or five games, it may be time to cut ties.

Capitals' pick Burakovsky developing rapidly in OHL

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 3:00 AM / In the Pipeline

Joe Yerdon - NHL.com Correspondent

ERIE, Pa. -- When the Washington Capitals selected forward Andre Burakovsky at No. 23 in the 2013 NHL Draft out of Malmo, Sweden, they may have wound up picking their next great superstar forward.

Burakovsky was ranked as the sixth-best international skater by NHL Central Scouting and is playing in his first season with the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League, his first campaign in North America. For some players that transition is difficult.

That hasn't been the case for Burakovsky, who has 32 goals and 68 points in 48 games with the Otters and is leaving a big impression on the Capitals.

Stars' Ruff has little time to celebrate milestone win

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 12:30 AM / NHL Insider

Steve Hunt - NHL.com Correspondent

DALLAS -- With the Dallas Stars' 3-2 win against the Buffalo Sabres on Monday night at American Airlines Center, Stars coach Lindy Ruff became the 12th coach in NHL history to reach 600 career victories.

However, Ruff had little time to savor his milestone win.

After hanging on to beat the Sabres, the Stars boarded a plane and will visit the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday.

"I had some real good teams … a Presidents' Trophy team [in 2006-07 with Buffalo]," Ruff said. "Those wins for the most part belong to the guys on the ice who go out and get them for you. To me, we needed that two points to help move up the standings. It was the most important thing."

I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
