Friday's Daily Dosage - Carter, Ladd, Dubnyk

Me and you and you and me...No matter how they toss the dice, it has to be...The only one for me is you, and you for me...SO HAPPY TOGETHER!

I'm sure you heard this by now but the big trade of last night was the Blue Jackets sending Jeff Carter to the Kings for Jack Johnson and a 1st round pick. I think the trade may actually benefit both players' fantasy value. Jack Johnson, like every other player on the Kings, has really been slumping so I'm not sure that this could really hurt his fantasy value. He'll likely play the point across from James Wisniewski on the powerplay so he may be able to get some points that way. Jeff Carter was obviously unhappy in Columbus. He was playing uninspired hockey and you have to wonder if his only real motivation to play hard recently (he had a hat trick last game) was to get out. Well he got his wish and he'll be reunited with Mike Richards. He may not like Darryl Sutter's coaching style much, but there's no denying that he'll be surrounded by better players. The Kings are also tied for the eighth playoff spot, so playing meaningful hockey has to do something for him. Right?

Andrew Ladd had 1+2=3, 2 PPP, and 7 shots last night. The goal gives him 20 on the season and he also had points in four straight games to the tune of 4+4=8, 4 PPP, and 19 shots. This run makes his season look that much less disappointing.

The Blake Wheeler show continued last night as he chipped in two assists, 4 PIM and 5 shots. His is a scalding hot streak with 1+10=11 over 5 games.

Steven Stamkos with 1+1=2 last night and he has 6+4=10 over a four game point streak. That puts him tied at 73 with Evgeni Malkin for the league lead.

Don't look now but Teddy Purcell is loving life with 1+1=2 and 4 shots last night. You'll find this hard to believe but going back to February 7th, only fellow teammate Steven Stamkos and Jason Spezza have more points than him (3+11=14).

Goal and an assist for Dustin Byfuglien last night including the GWG and he he's on a five game point streak with 2+7=9. He has really been a beast this season.

Devan Dubnyk made 35 stops en route to the shutout over the Flyers of all teams. That's two wins in a row for the kid as he plays with little to no pressure.

That's two straight multipoint games for Jordan Eberle as he finished with 1+1=2, plus-2.

Two assists for Mike Ribeiro and he's riding a five game point streak with 2+5=7. He's been over a point per game in his last 16 with 7+10=17.

Michael Ryder with 1+1=2, plus-2, 2 PIM, and 4 shots. He's been very productive with 3+5=8 over his last eight games. He loves playing with Loui Eriksson and Mike Ribeiro and who wouldn't. He's the perfect compliment to those two.

Jiri Tlusty with another point (assist) last night and he's run his streak to nine games. Just one of the nine is a multipointer so he's at 4+6=10 for the streak.

Eric Staal also extended his point streak with an assist. His is at 7 games with 6+6=12.

Not a lot of Cam Fowler talk this season as he's really hit the sophomore slump. He had a PPA last night but also a -1 to put him at -18. He was -25 last season and may match that this season. He hasn't had a goal in 35 games. The assist was just his third in his last 18 games. I own him in a keeper league and I don't think I'm going to be able to make a case for dragging him with me into next season.

Daniel Sedin with two goals for his third multipoint game in his last four. He has 4+4=8 over that span as he looks to close the season out with a bang.

Henrik Sedin with two assists and he also has three multipoint efforts in his last four with 1+7=8.

Niklas Backstrom with 41 saves as he took the SOW in Florida last night. That's his second consecutive game with at least 40 saves (he shutout the Bruins on Sunday with 48 saves) so he's riding high.

In his first game as a Red Wing, Kyle Quincey contributes a goal, plus-1, 4 PIM, 2 blocks, 3 hits, and 4 shots in 21:32 of ice time. This trade may actually be good for his value.

Darren Helm with 1+2=3 and a plus-2 last night. Where did that come from?

Ray Whitney with 1+1=2, plus 2 and he's on a four game point streak with 1+4=5.

It certainly wasn't pretty (21 saves on 24 shots) but Mike Smith won his ninth straight game last night. This streak is unreal.

Up to the NHL: Michal Repik, Jonathan Matsumoto, Casey Cizikas

Down to the AHL: Aaron Ness, Nolan Yonkman, Kevin Poulin, Matt Watkins
