Puck Daddy's Most Disappointing Summer Series: Philadelphia Flyers Edition (Puck Daddy)

Scott Gomez comes crawling back to the NJ Devils on tryout (Puck Daddy)
(Wed, 27 Aug 2014 15:27:03 PDT)
On July 2, 2007, Scott Gomez made a decision that affected the rest of his career. It was a decision made for financial gain, which was his right as an unrestricted free agent, and it was a decision that would adversely affect his relationship with fans that had supported him for seven years -- in that he left the New Jersey Devils for their arch rivals, the New York Rangers.   Devils GM Lou Lamoriello, however, understood that for both Gomez and Brian Rafalski, who signed with Detroit on the same day, it was business. Nothing personal. “They gave us everything while they were here and we'd like to think that we've given them a reciprocal situation,” he said. So seven years later – after Gomez became an overpriced pariah, involved in one of the most lopsided trades in recent NHL history and whose inability to score a goal made him a national punchline – the former Devils center, 34, is now an unsigned training camp tryout for the team. From Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger: "He felt he still had a lot of hockey in him and he's been working out this summer so I told him to come to camp," Lamoriello said. "There are no promises. We certainly know what he has the capability of doing. This is no different than with Petr Sykora." Sykora won a job with the Devils as an unsigned tryout in 2011 and proved to be a valuable addition. "Seeing LeBron (James) go home kind of inspired me to do the same thing. The reception is a little different, but..." Gomez joked. Gomez was bought out by the Montreal Canadiens in 2012 and latched on with the San Jose Sharks the following season, having gone the “unsigned tryout” route with them as well. He was signed by the Florida Panthers last season, scoring 2 goals and 10 assists in 46 games last season.  Lamoriello also addressed the expected fan backlash to the potential reunion: “That's never a concern of mine. A player leaves for whatever reasons.” You know what? Sometimes time does heal all wounds. And while Gomez’s decision to take the money and run to MSG may have forever changed his reputation with some Devils fans, I’d argue he’s been sufficiently humbled since then. To the point where Scott Gomex rejoining the Devils would be a feel-good story; and I never thought I’d type that back on July 2, 2007.  

Yahoo Fantasy Hockey: Ranking goalies will save your season (Puck Daddy)
(Wed, 27 Aug 2014 13:15:46 PDT)
This week, your friends at Puck Daddy are offering a variety of fantasy hockey previews ahead of the 2014-15 season. By  Darryl Dobbs In many fantasy hockey leagues, goalies make up close 10 percent of your roster, but account for 40% to 50% of your categories. Choosing wisely when it comes to netminders is crucial and if you get stuck with a below average group your chances of success are slim. I’ve been using a tiered system for several years and most of the time goaltending has been an asset to my team. Sure, there was the one year where I had one injured and one struck by a case of Masonitis. But for the most part, it’s a position that I don’t have to worry about mid-season. Tiering your goaltenders prior to drafting is a great way to help with decision making. The main thing to remember when setting up your 'Tiers' is that it's not just about skill and production. Often, it’s about opportunity and team strength. Michal Neuvirth is a talented goalie, but splitting starts with Jhonas Enroth on a team that will struggle for even 30 wins makes him next to fantasy useless. Frederik Andersen and John Gibson are two of the better goaltenders in the league in terms of talent, but the likelihood of splitting starts almost down the middle make both of them less valuable than say Corey Crawford – who is on a top team and is the clear No.1. Never start drafting goaltenders until there is a chance that you will miss out on all of your Tier 1 goalies. Then make sure you get one. After that, go back to forwards and defensemen until there is a chance that the Tier 2 goalies will be scooped up. Whatever happens - make sure you have at least one from Tier 1 and one from your Tier 2 (or a second from Tier 1 if one of them falls too far). Tier 1 The cream of the crop. Posting 35-40 wins should be in the cards for this group as well as some great GAA and SV% totals. Unless something happens like a major injury, or they get traded to Buffalo. Tuukka Rask, Boston Bruins After back-to-back pro-rated 36 wins (or more) seasons, Rask is firmly entrenched as one of the top goaltenders to own. Given his GAA and SV% last season (2.04 and 0.930) he's arguably the best. Corey Crawford, Chicago Blackhawks Crawford slipped last year due to a couple of nagging minor injuries and bouts of inconsistency. The latter will probably continue in the season ahead, but it doesn't matter - the Blackhawks will still play the hell out of him and the Blackhawks will still win a ton of games. Sergei Bobrovsky, Columbus Blue Jackets Bob followed up a Vezina Trophy season with a 32-win campaign and some strong supplemental numbers to go with it. For the second straight year he started out slow (4-8-0 to start 2013-14), so if he can fix that issue he'll flirt with 40 wins. But for now you may want to consider benching him the occasional start in October. Carey Price, Montreal Canadiens Pro-rating the lockout year, Price has averaged 36 wins over his last three seasons. His 2.32 and 0.927 numbers last year were career bests and he's only now entering his prime. Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers Lundqvist is about as "money in the bank" as goaltenders get in the NHL, though he sure had our faith shaken a bit last October and November. At the Christmas break he was 10-15-2 with a save percentage of just 0.906. He was back to his old self in the second half, but his streak of consecutive seasons of at least a 0.920 SV% was in jeopardy. Since 2008-09 he never dipped below that number to end a season. Two one-goal games to end the 2013-14 campaign eked him up to 0.920. So yeah, he can continue to hold his head high. Because otherwise a man with his looks and his bank account would have no reason to do that. Marc-Andre Fleury, Pittsburgh Penguins Last I checked, fantasy leagues only count the regular season. And Fleury is a potential 40-game winner any way you slice it. You already know his reputation in the playoffs. Just for kicks, go look at his save percentage each playoff year throughout his career - even going back to junior hockey. Shocking. Ben Bishop, Tampa Bay Lightning While Bishop just has the one big season to go by (37 wins), I'll give you nearly 12 million reasons why he'll at least come close to repeating the effort. That two-year deal was for huge money and he'll see 65 starts if healthy.

Yahoo Fantasy Hockey: The studs and sleepers on defense (Puck Daddy)
(Tue, 26 Aug 2014 13:58:07 PDT)
All week, your friends at Puck Daddy drop some fantasy hockey knowledge on you ahead of the 2014-15 season. Undisputed Erik Karlsson, Ottawa Senators  – Karlsson is still the best defenseman in fantasy hockey. By far. He is the Sidney Crosby of defensemen. Next Up Shea Weber, Nashville Predators  – Weber has always been a good fantasy own, but his value in real hockey is absolutely elite. Now that the Preds have a more offensive-minded coach, Weber could well top 60 points and see his fantasy value match his 'real' value. P.K. Subban, Montreal Canadiens  – If you're not sold already, by the end of the 2014-15 season you'll see why he was given a $72 million contract. Boom or Bust Mike Green, Washington Capitals  – It's rare when a defenseman tops 70 points. That's why Karlsson is so valuable. So when you consider that Green has done it twice and is only now in his prime, poolies will keep drafting him and hoping for a return to glory even five years from now. Kris Letang, Pittsburgh Penguins - One injury after another and just when you figured it couldn't get any worse - last year happened. If Letang can play even 65 games he's a good bet for 60-plus points. The Stars These next few players are the rest of the true fantasy stars on defense. Victor Hedman  – I wouldn't be surprised if Hedman finished second in defensemen scoring this year. His rise in production year after year has been steady and consistent. Keith Yandle, Phoenix Coyotes  – Not only is the 27-year-old Yandle coming off of the second 50-point season of his career, but he also hasn't missed a game since 2009. Duncan Keith, Chicago Blackhawks  – I won't be drafting the reigning Norris Trophy winner this year because I don't value him at the 61 points he tallied last year. The last time he topped 60 points, he followed it up with three years of 45-ish points. Other managers will draft him very, very, very, very early. So I'll let them. Christian Ehrhoff, Pittsburgh Penguins  – I don't have to tell you what Ehrhoff's signing with the Penguins means in fantasy hockey. Do I? Three words: Ca. Reer. High. Ryan Suter, Minnesota Wild  – After averaging 27:16 per game in 2012-13, Suter took it one step further, seeing 29:24 per game last season. If anything, his numbers were hurt by the added workload, but he's still a lock to clear 40 points. Kevin Shattenkirk, St. Louis Blues  – Still only 25, Shattenkirk is coming off of career highs in goals, assists and points. Five of his 10 goals were game winners, too. Alex Pietrangelo, St. Louis Blues  – Pietrangelo hit 51 points for the second time in his career. Even though he's taking on more defensive responsibility and letting teammate Shattenkirk shoulder the offense, he's still putting up big numbers. Niklas Kronwall, Detroit Red Wings  – He may be 33 but he seems to be just getting started. Coming off the second best season of his career, Kronwall should have an easier time of it this year with a healthy Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg, as well as the emergence of Gustav Nyquist. Alex Goligoski, Dallas Stars  – Goligoski managed 42 points last season despite starting off the year pointless in nine games. Add in the fact that the Stars have more firepower now than they did last season and Goligoski is primed for a big year.

(Fri, 15 Aug 2014 14:00:36 PDT)
(Ed. Note: There’s entirely too much sunshine in the summer. So your friends at Puck Daddy are offering a month of thrown shade and perpetual gloom. Behold, our Summer of Disappointment series, in which we ask fans of all 30 teams to recall the biggest bummer moments, teams and players in franchise history! Please wade into their misery like a freezing resort pool, and add your own choices in the comments!) By Greg Wyshynski, Puck Daddy Editor (and Jersey native) Most Disappointing Team: 1995-96 New Jersey Devils I was tempted to put the 1988-89 Devils here, which was a team that followed their first-ever playoff appearance with a fifth-place clunker that saw their point total drop by 16, with mostly the same roster. But at least that playoff team was one that needed to qualify in the last game of the season. It’s not like they, you know, won the Stanley Cup or anything ... The 1995-96 Devils were, on the other hand, defending Stanley Cup champions and hence their failure to make the playoffs the following year – becoming the first NHL team to go from top of the playoffs to out of the money since 1970 – was the franchise’s greatest disappointment. Devoid of the chemistry they showed in 1995, lackluster seasons from key players and a Cup hangover that lasted through December. Just an ugly season, and not just because they traded for Esa Tikkanen. Most Disappointing Devil: Neil Brady I wanted to keep this one to homegrown Devils and not ones acquired in trades, because, seriously, Esa Tikkanen. So the most disappointing Devils is then an indisputable bust named Neil Brady. He was awesome in juniors with Medicine Hat, including 83 points in 72 games one season. The Devils saw him as a dynamic forward that could slot behind Kirk Muller for years to come, and drafted him No. 3 overall in 1986. As one Devil at the time once relayed to me: Brady showed up in camp and was winded during the most basic drills, and the veterans let him know about it. Confidence shattered, Beef O‘Brady would play 29 games with the Devils before being shipped to the expansion Ottawa Senators. He scored their first-ever goal had a career-high 29 points in 57 games. Alas, he would play only 89 games total in the NHL, spending the majority of his veteran playing days in the IHL. So he was a huge bust, but no biggie – it’s not like Vincent Damphousse or Brian Leetch were on the draft board at No. 3. Oh, right, they were. Le sigh … Most Disappointing Moment in Devils History: Niedermayer leaves No, not the Stephane Matteau goal. Three Cups, including one the following season, should have stitched up that pulsating wound. Not to mention Adam Henrique in 2012. No, not Parise leaving for Minnesota, but it comes close. No, not Kovalchuk leaving for Russia, because at the end of the day, cap recapture is a thing and the Devils got out under a contract that was toxic in the new CBA.  No, the most disappointing moment was Scott Niedermayer leaving to play with his brother. To set the scene: It was after the lockout. Scott Stevens was likely headed to retirement, due to post-concussion syndrome. Niedermayer was about to inherit the mantle as the Devils’ franchise defensive player. They offered him five years and $1 million annually more than the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim did. ($7.8 million per season!) But they couldn’t offer Rob Niedermayer. So Scotty left to play with his bro and won a fourth Stanley Cup with the Ducks in 2007. The Devils have yet to win one without Scott Niedermayer on the roster. Most Disappointing Devils Transaction: The Doug Gilmour Trade The word is “disappointing,” not worst. Worst could be Sean O’Donnell for Willie Mitchell, in hindsight. Or, you know, Esa Tikkanen. But for many of us, getting Gilmour was the first time the Devils were ever the belle of the trade deadline ball. It was the first time the Devils acquired a star offensive player near his prime (with due respect to Peter Stastny, Bernie Nicholls and Neal Broten). The full Feb. 1997 trade was Dave Ellett, Doug Gilmour and a 3rd round selection (previously acquired - Andre Lakos) from Toronto to the New Jersey Devils for Jason Smith, Steve Sullivan and the rights to Alyn McCauley. Ellett was a pylon. Gilmour played 83 games for the Devils, scoring 75 points. But he had four points in 10 playoff games in 1996-97, before scoring five in six games in the 1998 loss to the Ottawa Senators, proving you can take the boy out of the Battle of Ontario, but yadda yadda yadda … The other side of the trade featured Smith, who would go on to have a solid NHL career as a stay-at-home defenseman; Sullivan a spark-plug offensive player for the next decade; and McCauley, while never reaching his potential due to concussions, ended up as a serviceable forward for the Leafs and the Sharks. In hindsight, it was a move the Devils still should have made. But Gilmour simply never fulfilled the promise of that jaw-dropping acquisition. Most Disappointing Devils Coach/Executive: John MacLean He went from scoring the most important goal in Devils history to being its most hapless head coach, lasting 33 games and nine wins before getting the axe in 2010-11. Most disappointing, overwhelmed, terrible … really, pick your poison. Most Disappointing Devils Fashion Choice: No Black Jersey

Canadiens owner had final word on P.K. Subban, to shock of no one (Puck Daddy)
(Mon, 11 Aug 2014 10:34:04 PDT)
There are some signings that a general manager makes that don’t need a tremendous amount of discussion with his team owner. If Marc Bergevin wants to throw $850,000 at Manny Malhotra, we’re sure Geoff Molson wasn't burning the midnight oil going over faceoff stats from the AHL Charlotte Checkers.  But P.K. Subban is going to make $72 million over the next eight years as an employee of the Montreal Canadiens. That Molson would take an active role in those negotiations is understandable, logical and in the end not all that out of line with what’s expected from an NHL team owner that doubles as the franchise’s president. Ted Leonsis negotiated Alex Ovechkin’s 2008 contract. Jeff Vanderbeek was active in the New Jersey Devils’ acquisition and subsequent contract debacle with Ilya Kovalchuk. Ed Snider was an aggressive catalyst for the Flyers acquiring Ilya Bryzgalov, even if he’s revised his role a bit in the aftermath. And so it goes with many, many NHL owners. And so it went with Molson, who was the final word on the when and "how much" for P.K. Subban’s contract. Unfortunately for Molson and the Canadiens, this is being portrayed as some type of power struggle. Jack Todd of the Montreal Gazette writes that “it was indeed Molson who overruled GM Marc Bergevin, when it appeared that the club might be saddled with a single-year arbitration contract and a disgruntled star.” From Todd: It was Molson’s call to sign P.K. long-term and it was exactly right. Which doesn’t mean Bergevin was wrong. Both men were doing their jobs: Bergevin’s task is to make an evaluation based on his salary cap and his evaluation of a player’s performance. Molson has to take the wider view and consider factors like fan-base reaction that really aren’t Bergevin’s problem. This notion from Todd has been spun in some circles as an indication that Molson and his GM aren't on the same page.  The idea that there’s a power struggle between a general manager fighting for a short-term deal and an owner stomping all over him to hand Subban a long-term deal is a juicy one; because any inkling that an activist owner and his stubborn GM aren’t getting along, or that the GM has been reduced to puppet status, is especially sexy when it involves hockey’s most sacrosanct franchise.  But the problem with that idea is … 1. It relies on a theory that Bergevin didn’t want to lock Subban up long-term (he did) and that the arbitration process wasn't something the team was simply leveraging against Subban in the hopes of getting a favorable deal (it didn’t financially; it did in buying up extra UFA years). 2. That Molson didn’t endorse the team’s hard-line approach with its star player, despite having taken an active role in player personnel since 2012. 3. That Molson didn’t have the final call in these talks regardless of the timing or circumstances. Subban was in constant contact with him throughout the process, and clearly something in the dynamic changed after the arbitration hearing. Bergevin could advise and consent; only Molson was going to cut the check.   Which, again, should be rather obvious when dealing with a star like Subban and an owner like Molson. Perhaps he pulled the trigger on the deal a little sooner than his general manager hoped he would, especially with Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher up for new deals soon. But in the end, Geoff Molson’s the guy who buys the bullets.
