Week 12 – Holiday Edition

RAMBLINGS

Despite fewer games, Fulty had a solid week (34pts), while Stifler brought up the back-end (9pts)

Fulty is on a 14-0 run (and doing it with 3 Oilers!)

After a rough start, Erty is quietly going about his business

T-Man fit to be tied: 5 ties this year; just like an EPL team

TRADES & TRANSACTIONS

Lots of players moving around this week:

  • Fasth ED goes to JBR (your goaltending situation just got worse!)
  • Hodgson BF goes to Fulty (still not too late for Cody, but Orv and the Sabres might have wrecked him)
  • T-Man adds a top 6 player in Spooner BO (top 6 in the AHL)
  • Orv grabbed Campbell FL to solidify age his defence
  • Bouwmeester ST naturally went to Team Holland and switches from Blues to Oranje
  • Colborne CY takes his rich-boy act to Haukster
  • Sproul DT gives Vinny a young player that is ready to crack Detroit’s roster (in 2021)
  • Rynnas DL goes to Fulty…..and the song remains the same
  • Martin PT goes to Cordy.  Vinny lauds the trade as “Cordy gets a role player. And that role is ‘Player-to-be-cut.'”
  • Rolphy “sent a message” in releasing and re-selecting Smith-Pelley-Smith AH.

TRADE: T-Man sends Trochek FL & 5th in ’16 to Rolphy for Kuemper MN

  • ANALYSIS: Lose-Lose-Win — Kuemper might be a decent goalie, but The Wild have a habit of cursing their goalies with various maladies (Backstrom, Harding), plus, they have no museums (Bryzgalov).  Trochek is a decent centreman but he’s buried in the depth chart behind 4 C’s who are his age or younger.  The only win here is the 5th, which Rolphy has traditionally used to pick up such players as Orlov, Henrique, & Dickenson (Angie)

TRADE: Orv trades Pietrangelo ST, 2nd ’16, and C’s 5th ’16 to Cordy for JJohnson CBJ, Barrie CO & 5th ’15

  • ANALYSIS: Win-Win — (see below)
