Fantasy hockey rankings: What’s behind Mikhail Sergachev’s rise?

Since the change, the Bolts advantage has gone six-for-19 on the advantage (31.6%). On the surface and certainly by the statistics, Sergachev is beating Hedman when it comes to fantasy value. But don’t be so hasty now. Sergachev deserves to push up these rankings. His offense off the power play has leveled up, with 10 […]

Why the New Jersey Devils are dominating the NHL

Lindy Ruff had reason to smile. Not just because the New Jersey Devils were in the midst of a winning streak that would reach 11 games, but because the same fans who had called for his dismissal at the start of the season had audible apologized: “Fire Lindy!” had become “Sorry, Lindy!” That happens when […]

NHL season preview: Power rankings, best- and worst-case scenarios and bold predictions

The 2021-22 NHL season is being called a return to normalcy.

Fantasy hockey draft prep: Single category specialists

All of three players collected 40 or more goals back in the dark scoring ages of 2016-17. Only four the previous season, followed by eight in 2017-18. No small wonder we all scrambled to jam Alex Ovechkin onto our fantasy squads back then. Thankfully, today’s NHL boasts significantly louder scoring fireworks. Not only did 17 […]

Bouncebacks: Can Chychrun, Pastrnak, Hamilton find their past scoring?

While expectations are one thing, I wanted to quantify exactly what we are looking for here. Taking the fantasy production put up by all NHLers over the past three years, I took the average fantasy points per game (FPPG) and per 60 minutes (FPP60) from the first two years and looked at the difference compared […]
