Whether you are in a keeper league or a one-year league, knowing who the reliable elite goaltenders are is often a must. Since last season it seems apparent that there is a switch in which generation of netminders should be considered the top tier of pack. It was not long ago the best goaltenders in the league were regarded as being Ryan Miller (now 32), Ilya Bryzgalov (now 32), Miikka Kiprusoff (now 35), Niklas Backstrom (now 34), Roberto Luongo (now 33), and Martin Brodeur (now 40) among others.

The fantasy hockey draft season is fast approaching. It is the time of year to set your keeper players, pick up the latest edition of your favorite magazine and start scouring for that pool buster pick. The ever elusive pick which will make you the envy of your peers and elevate you to the stature of equally liked hockey minded greats such as Bob Mackenzie, Scotty Bowman, and Ken Holland.

Catering to the lighter side of Fantasy Hockey

You DONíT wanna be that guy!
Itís almost fantasy hockey draft time if thereís a season and the trash talk has already started and many of the proposed rule changes are being bandied about like politicians filibustering to get their legislative changes through the House of Commons. Hearing all this double-talk and non-sensical jibber jabbering about something
Most hockey fans realize that a quality goaltender is an important piece to any success both for actual NHL teams and in fantasy hockey. Stability in net is a key to nearly every team that reaches the elite level of play.
A few friendly conversations with FHC's own Kevin Gesterling had me thinking about how we as fans and as fantasy GMs assess netminders. We all have the same statistics from the same players to judge but come to different conclusions.
Here are mine about
The Rangers have traded centers C Artem Anisimov, C Brandon Dubinsky, D Tim Erixon and a 1st round pick to Columbus for W Rick Nash.
The Rangers add scoring, and Columbus in my mind gets 2 good centers, a prospect defender and a 1st round pick.
This just begs the question, what is the price for Bobby Ryan? We'll see.
