Welcome to the Thursday ramblings. I am in a state of “I have no idea what to write about” and have been like that for a few days, so I decided I will just give some random thoughts. These ramblings might not be very long but hopefully I can spout off something helpful.

 

 

Have you checked these out:

 

 

The 31-in-31 team run through for August has begun, you can find the July 31-in-31 in there as well in case you have missed any: https://dobberprospects.com/Table/feature/31-in-31-series/

 

 

Check out Hayden’s Prospect Ramblings where he gives a Fantasy Hockey Guide sneak peek: https://dobberprospects.com/prospect-ramblings-fantasy-hockey-guide-sneak-peek/

 

 

Speaking of that have you picked up the Dobber Guide that gets updated up until the start of the NHL season? I have used this guide to win multiple pools (but not Yahoo because I have the worst luck on that platform). Buy it here: https://dobbersports.com/product/dobbers-2019-20-fantasy-hockey-guide/

 

 

An aside from that! Did you get the DobberProspects guide from earlier this year!? Do it: https://dobbersports.com/product/dobbers-2019-fantasy-hockey-prospects-report/

 

 

Also a new version of the Dobber Prospects Radio popped yesterday about “Waiver Exempt Prospects, WJSS, Glinka-Gretzky standouts and Interviews from the Draft”, did you listen? https://dobberprospects.com/dpr-episode-60-waiver-exempt-prospects-wjss-glinka-gretzky-standouts-and-interviews-from-the-draft/

 

 

Here is the Bob McKenzie episode too: https://dobberprospects.com/dpr-episode-59-so-you-want-to-be-a-scout-my-fantasy-draft-ncaa-and-europe-players-to-draft-and-bob-mckenzie/

 

Make sure to listen to the DPR show, Peter Harling puts a ton of work in to them!

Alright after that list of advertisements it now it is time for my random thoughts:

 

Jesse Granger (@JesseGranger_) who covers Vegas for The Athletic expects Cody Glass to start the season on line four between Ryan Reaves and Tomas Nosek, and all I can say to that is “Please little baby Jesus, do not let this happen.”

 

 

Cody Eakin is projected to play between Alex Tuch and Brandon Pirri. I sit there and look and this projected list and say wonder why NHL coaches start prized rookies between players who cannot score. If Glass starts on line four I expect him to be scratched often and later sent to the AHL. If the team is smart they will start him between Pirri and Tuch as a sheltered third line… which would almost be as good as a Nikita Gusev-Cody Glass-Alex Tuch third line… Sorry Vegas fans, I am disappointed the G. Knights did not keep him either but as a Devils fan I am ecstatic!

 

If Glass starts on line four I would guess: 18 GP 2G-3A-5P for the season

If Glass starts on the third line I would guess: 70GP 12G-20A-32P for the season

Andrei Svechnikov will score 30+ goals next year as Brind’Amour will finally put him on the first powerplay
