Fantasy top 100 forwards: McDavid, Hall excel apart

Tuesday, 11.03.2015 / 12:05 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Pete Jensen - NHL.com Fantasy Insider

Every Tuesday during the season, NHL.com fantasy hockey insider Pete Jensen provides in-depth forward analysis. From updated weekly top-100 rankings to trending players and more, Jensen is your go-to guy for fantasy forward advice all season long.


Entering the season, fantasy owners were high enough on Edmonton Oilers rookie Connor McDavid to risk a third- or fourth-round pick on a player who had never played an NHL game. It was not only because of rave reviews, but also because he'd likely play with proven assets Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle.

The early combinations under Edmonton coach Todd McLellan have certainly not shaken out the way we anticipated, but the chemistry on the Oilers' top two lines has made more widespread fantasy waves than we could have imagined 12 games into the season. Edmonton has three players with 10 or more points (Hall 13, McDavid 12, Nail Yakupov 10) and one with nine (Ryan Nugent-Hopkins) despite Eberle not playing a game yet because of injury.

Going into the season, it would have been crazy to think that McDavid and Hall, if they were apart in most situations, could each produce among the upper echelon of forwards in McDavid's first season. But this proves that the right chemistry, even with players who in the past appeared to have fallen out of favor with a particular team, can lead to magical things in fantasy hockey. Eberle's impending return only sweetens the pot.

Kevin Weekes lists best goalies to never win Cup

Tuesday, 11.03.2015 / 10:00 AM / Game Savers

Kevin Weekes - NHL Network Analyst

NHL Network analyst Kevin Weekes, in conjunction with the new Canada Post goaltender stamp series, provides his insight into the position he played for 11 seasons in the League.

This week, Weekes discusses the best goaltenders to have never won the Stanley Cup.

All of these guys have changed the game in their own way.

Every one of them was great in their own way and have left and continue to leave legacies on the game. Every one of them wants to win the Cup. Two of the three are still active as players and are hoping to one day be removed from this list.

Here are the three best goalies in my opinion to never have won the Stanley Cup:

Curtis Joseph: What I like about him is his story. Joseph was undrafted, went to the University of Wisconsin and was awesome there. He was signed by the St. Louis Blues and was amazingly fun to watch, especially those years where they had those playoff series against the Toronto Maple Leafs. I remember seeing signs "Only God makes more saves than Joseph." Joseph was fun, dynamic, acrobatic, athletic, entertaining and a great competitor.

Red Wings captain Zetterberg one goal shy of 300

Tuesday, 11.03.2015 / 9:30 AM / NHL Insider

Paul Harris - NHL.com Correspondent

DETROIT -- Detroit Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg is set to join select company.

With two assists in Detroit's 5-3 win against the Ottawa Senators at Canadian Tire Centre on Saturday, Zetterberg reached 800 points in his NHL career.

The previous night, during a 3-1 loss to the Senators at Joe Louis Arena, Zetterberg scored his 299th goal.

He is the ninth Swedish player with 800 points in the NHL.

The others are Mats Sundin, Daniel Alfredsson, Nicklas Lidstrom, Henrik Sedin, Daniel Sedin, Peter Forsberg, Markus Naslund and Tomas Sandstrom.

Zetterberg's next goal will make him the seventh Swede to score 300 and the fifth player in Red Wings history to have 300 goals and 800 points, joining Gordie Howe, Steve Yzerman, Alex Delvecchio and Sergei Fedorov.

The Red Wings host the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday (7:30 p.m. ET; SUN, FS-D).

McDavid-Eichel buzz similar to Crosby-Ovechkin

Tuesday, 11.03.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

George McPhee won't forget the electricity generated by Washington Capitals left wing Alex Ovechkin and Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby when they entered the NHL as rookies in 2005-06.

McPhee, general manager of the Capitals at the time, had a front-row seat to one of the more memorable races for the Calder Memorial Trophy as NHL rookie of the year. Ovechkin won after he had 52 goals and 106 points in 81 games. Crosby, who had 39 goals and 102 points in 81 games, was second.

Now a special adviser to New York Islanders general manager Garth Snow, McPhee sees similarities between the rookie seasons for Ovechkin and Crosby and the performances this season of Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid and Buffalo Sabres center Jack Eichel.

"It turns out to be great for the game because the entire League and hockey world is watching, and there's this instant competition between the two guys," McPhee said.

Hall honors Karmanos for efforts to grow game

Tuesday, 11.03.2015 / 3:00 AM / Hall of Fame

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

NHL.com takes a look at each of the seven individuals who will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto on Nov. 9.

When Carolina Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos Jr. stands at the podium Monday as part of the Hockey Hall of Fame Class of 2015, there will be emotions he hasn't experienced since the final seconds of Game 7 of the 2006 Stanley Cup Final were counted down at RBC Center.

"Nervous as hell," Karmanos said. "I was telling [Hurricanes general manager Ron Francis] how nervous I was, and he [was inducted in 2007]. He said, 'You're not alone.' It's going to be interesting. I'm going to have fun."

AHL notebook: Coach's job more than coaching

Tuesday, 11.03.2015 / 3:00 AM / AHL Update

Patrick Williams - NHL.com Correspondent

Manning an American Hockey League bench means being part-coach, part-career counselor, part-psychologist, part-father figure and juggling those roles constantly.

Manitoba Moose coach Keith McCambridge's to-do list this season is especially busy as he works to introduce nine rookies into pro hockey. Helping his players handle the transition to the pro game is McCambridge's job.

"You wear many different caps as a coach in this league," said McCambridge, 41, who is in his fifth season as coach of the Winnipeg Jets' AHL affiliate.

Five Questions: Schneider on Devils' surprising start

Tuesday, 11.03.2015 / 3:00 AM / Five Questions With…

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NHL.com's Q&A feature called "Five Questions With …" runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features New Jersey Devils goaltender Cory Schneider:

NEWARK, N.J. -- The preseason predictions weren't kind to the New Jersey Devils. Is it possible that they also were wrong?

Instead of being thought of as a potential Stanley Cup Playoff team, the Devils were picked to be a potential NHL Draft Lottery team. They've missed the Stanley Cup Playoffs the past three seasons, and there was a general consensus among the prognosticators, regardless of newspaper, website or blog, that the Devils would make it four in a row.

Maybe not.

The Devils have won six of their past seven games after starting the season with four consecutive losses, including the first three in regulation. They are 4-1-0 on the road and 4-1 in games decided after regulation, including 2-0 in overtime.

They're playing teams close and finding ways to win, which typically is what teams on the rise that are trying to become contenders do.
