Fantasy Pool Look: Fantasy Potpourri

It's another one of those days – nothing specific to highlight, so I'll give you a little bit of everything…

Dick Tarnstrom going to Edmonton will not be the fantasy boon you might think. He's just not a Craig MacTavish-type of player. If I own him, I'm listening to offers from fellow owners. He may have an impact for a couple of games, but I think that will fade awayÂ…

Jaroslav Spacek seems to be a better fit in Edmonton. I can see him getting a point every other game now that he's on the OilersÂ…

Mike Sillinger is quietly having an amazing season in St. Louis. The Blues have little choice but to rely on Sillinger for offense, since they are so thin up front. He has 38 points in his last 38 games and 11 points in his last sevenÂ…

The Penguins may be losing, but Mark Recchi is heating up again. The 37-year-old has seven points in his last three games, after a one-in-six droughtÂ…

Speaking of Pittsburgh, I think you may see Sergei Gonchar waking up from his slumber. The 31-year-old rearguard has four points in his last three games and the trading of Tarnstrom could shake things up enough to get him goingÂ…

Minnesota defenseman Kurtis Foster has five points in his last five games. At 24, Foster is still getting minimal ice time, however he is getting more time quarterbacking the power play than any other blueliner on the Wild the past few gamesÂ…

Tampa Bay goaltender John Grahame has won three straight games, including back-to-back shutouts. He is still platooning with Sean Burke, but his hot streaks tend to last five to 10 games and should be activated in all fantasy formatsÂ…

Injuries, from a fantasy pool perspective: The injury to Buffalo's Tim Connolly has opened things up for some other players to step in and take on a more offensive role. Jochen Hecht has already picked up a couple of points and rookies Jason Pominville and Thomas Vanek are also stepping in with power play and even-strength pointsÂ…

Farm Report: San Jose prospect Steve Bernier has 21 points in his last 16 games for the Cleveland Barons of the American League. The 20-year-old has some NHL offensive potential and actually started out the year on the big club…The Hockey News's annual Future Watch magazine is out in stores now – still the best tool for evaluating prospects for your keeper league in my books.
