Just saw these news https://www.nhl.com/...ahl/c-282528052 that Ondrej Pavelec will be send to AHL. Was not surprise, i made my Winnipeg Jets news ready long time ago, and i did predict Hellebuyck as starter so look like i guess rigth this time, even that i thought that they keep Pavelec as back up. I think Shark could take him or Toronto. I think if Pavelec will clear to waiwers he will move to KHL instead of AHL.

 

I has been waiting news from Vancover that if they will keep Tuomo Ruutu or not, i really wish that they keep Ruutu so i can take him back to my fantasy team. Will make my fantasy team ready tomorrow. I need back up goalie when NSH sent Saros to AHL.

Nah, the Sharks don't have any cap space. And Ruutu was released by Vancouver today!

Dam it :/ i so did hope that Ruutu will get second chance in new team.

 

Just made Wild calender ready for me. (I copy and past Wild calender to my own NHL folder so i can see when is games without visitin in NHL site) and realised that we have very hard schedule for end of season in march we have 16 game and in last 20 games we play every alternative days or double games, meaning only one day rest or not rest days at all. It will be difficult last 20 game when you dont get any rest when there is 4 double game also. We play only one game in 8 day period in start of November, its our biggest break, biggest home streak is 8 game long. We have totall of 14 double games, what is not huge amount and only 9 EU time game, latest EU time game start 23:00 Finnish time, last year if i remember corretly we had 14 EU time game. 9 from 82 is very less, why NHL cant take account EU fans more. They just dont respect us EU fans :/

 

I am so so excited about new season, i keep thinking our lineups and powerplay/shorthanded units, and how good team we have and how we finally got good coach. Gabby has won 7 division tittle in last 8 year, so he is great coach, division tittle is harder to win in our division than he had in those old divisions, but i really think that this can be our season, we can finally see Koivu and other players to win individual trophies too and we can finally win Cup. We have roster what can do it and now we have coach too which can win it :)

 

Will start make my fantasy team ready now.

Got final updates ready for NHL fantasy team.I did take only one extra defender this time, but if NJ call Auvitu from AHL i will take him as my second extra D. My back up will be Raanta, but if Rämö get new contract i change back to him, but now i go with Dubnyk and Raanta, i wait good and solid season from Dubnyk, overall he played ok season last year, over avarage in all the categories. Saros will get games if NSH call him from AHL, i hope that they dose, but Saros will be my future goalie for sure. I am about one milj under salary cap, but i am still sad to let Vanek go, i did take couple new young fins in roster and when season progress i decide who i keep and who not, Pulkkinen is mystery for me, but i decide give him chance after R. Carter and Ruutu didnt get contracts. Didn't remember that i was planned to take Chris Stewart, so updated my rosters and did take Stewart after this photos was sent.

Look like Auvitu will start in NJ roster :) Pulju did make one goal also against CGY what did show again that it was not they goalies fault that they allowed so much goals in last year, they should start defence better. Today(tomorrow for me) Wild season start :), most of my work day i was just thinking my Wild team and how good we can be and will be in this season, hopefully i am able to sleep in coming night and i am lucky that in my work time fly fast, so my 7 hour work day will go fast tomorrow, but it could feel little bit slower when i have to wait to get to home to see Wild game. Hopefully i dont hear results from radio, i want to keep it open when i drive so driving wouldn't be so poor. I usually listen Aalto radio, but tomorrow i probably change to Loop because there is no news or talking, its only music radio station.
