I Look Good

Stephen Weiss got a hat trick tonight. Scroll down and you will see him on my list of players to pick up. Booyah.

Also in the League tonight; screw the fact that Marc Savard is back, Patrice Bergeron notched three in a 4-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning. I would take a long, hard look at some of the wingers on Boston.

After three games with the Wild, Guillaume Latendresse now has two goals and one assist. Other newcomer, Andrew Ebbett scored the winner for Minnesota in overtime. I was confused as to why they didn’t pick up Ebbett the first time he was put on waivers by Anaheim, but oh well. Hopefully these guys can find homes with this team.

Alexander Edler is on fire as of late, with eight points in his last four games. Welcome back the Alex Burrows we knew from last season. He is back on a line with the Sedins; his grit compliments their skill very nicely. Sorry, what’s that Mikael Samuelsson? You were playing way above your head in October? He is back down to Earth now and probably won’t crack 45 points for the season.

Back to the Panthers, what a month for Steven Reinprecht, Nathan Horton and Weiss. They have been carrying this team on their backs. Speaking of streaks, Matt Duchene had his second straight multi-goal game tonight, potting two goals and adding an assist. He also had seven shots on goal; not bad for a rookie. Paul Stastny continues to rack up assists, he had three tonight. That ties him for fifth in the League with 23. And now we have a Stewart family member who actually should have some fantasy value. After Anthony Stewart teased owners with good play on his way up the ranks, his brother Chris has been making an impact early on this season. After posting 19 points in 53 games as a rookie, he has already put up 15 points in 24 games this season. Add that with the 19 PIM he had tonight and there could be a new fantasy force on the horizon.
