Nobody really getting claimed on waivers even though some fairly talented players came available.


Injuries are going to hit inevitably so he may still have a shot.  In one of my dynasty leagues in Fantrax I currently have 10 red flag players(injured).

Many of those waivered players will find their way back for opening night even in a reserve status I'm sure.

Fantasy pools have come a long way from the days of pen and paper and checking the sports section in the newspaper every morning and not having the late game stats.

The Ottawa Senators have signed star forward Bobby Ryan to a seven-year $50.75 million contract extension.

And Erik Karlsson has been named the team’s eighth captain at the same time.

The announcements were made at a news conference at Canadian Tire Centre.

The Ryan deal is something of a surprise as the forward had said he wanted to wait to see how the season would unfold before contemplating a new contract. Just Tuesday the head coach of the team had announced a power play plan that would see Ryan on what would be the second unit.

“Bobby Ryan extension was down the list of probables when this day started. 7 yr deal expected to be announced. #sens

— Wayne Scanlan (@HockeyScanner) October 2, 2014


Ryan, 27, is from New Jersey and was to be a free agent following the season. In 70 games last year, he scored 23 goals and 25 assists before injury forced him to the sidelines.

Ryan was acquired by the Senators in a deal with the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for Jakob Silfverberg, Stefan Noesen and Ottawa’s first round pick in the 2014 NHL draft.

The appointment of Karlsson comes after a lengthy debate in training camp about whether the C should go to a veteran like Chris Phillips or whether the young Swede was ready for the task.

Previous Senators captains:

Laurie Boschman, 1992-1993

Mark Lamb and Brad Shaw, 1993-1994 (co-captains)

Gord Dineen, 1994 (March­April)

Randy Cunneyworth, 1995-1998

Alexei Yashin, 1998-1999

Daniel Alfredsson, 1999-2013

Jason Spezza, 2013-2014

I certainly hope so. Rogers is now in charge of HNIC so it remains to be seen if there will be any major content changes.

Did Elliott Freidman make the transition to Rogers? To Me, He was the best part of the studio crew.

From his wiki - After Rogers Media secured a 12-year exclusive contract for NHL rights, under which Rogers' Sportsnet would produce game broadcasts for both Rogers channels and CBC, Friedman joined Sportsnet full-time and will participate in its hockey broadcasts

It's going to be an interesting year trying to follow your favourite NHL team on Canadian TV. The Bruins home opener on October 8th is being shown on FX Canada. :? This year Rogers will be airing regular season games on regional Sportsnet channels, Sportsnet One, Sportsnet 360, CBC, City TV and FX Canada.




Here's a look at the new $ 4.5 million HNIC set:

The FX thing bugs me because having Bell I can't get that channel. I have no idea how that will translate in terms of whether the FX games will be available on Center Ice or not. I suspect not.

If it translates into me having to watch Hawks games on the computer when I'm specifically paying for Center Ice to make sure I get all their games, I'll be exceptionally pissed.

All I can tell you is that that for the Bruins game on FX Canada ( it's actually on the 11th vs Washington ) it's not showing up anywhere on my Center Ice listings so you might be out of luck for any Chicago games airing on FX Canada.


EDIT - According to the TV schedule at NHL.com it looks like there is only 1 Chicago game airing on FX Canada:  http://www.nhl.com/ice/schedulebyseason.htm?team=CHI

October 25 - vs St. Louis

Of all the players placed on waivers this past week this is the one guy claimed so far:


D-Nate Prosser



http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=732690


Minnesota Wild claim defenceman Nate Prosser off waivers from St. Louis BluesThursday, 10.02.2014 / 2:55 PM /


ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota Wild have claimed defenceman Nate Prosser off waivers from St. Louis.
The Wild announced the move Thursday. Prosser became a free agent last summer and signed with St. Louis, only to be waived by the Blues this week.
Prosser scored two goals and had six assists and 58 penalty minutes in 53 games with the Wild last season. The 28-year-old from Elk River, Minnesota, has totalled 21 points — three goals and 18 assists — and 127 penalty minutes in 126 games during parts of five seasons with the Wild.
The 6-foot-2, 203-pound defenceman first signed as a free agent with Minnesota in 2010.

that game will air on WGN so I'll have it.
Still a pisser for Bell subscribers if the FX games are exclusive to that channel and can't be seen on CI....even if you want to buy the channel to see them. :(

I watched the Bruins vs Islanders pre-season game the other night... the B's looked scrappy, and I I think they are going to be decent this season... I can't wait til Wednesday night, and the season starts.
