Fantasy Hockey Scouts: Daily Dosage - Nov 16th, 2009

Dosage Express
Leino riding some coattails... All hail Rich Peverley... The Canes get a win... Garon next hot goalie pickup... Leno & Luc

Daily Diarrhea  

Leino,villeYou might have noticed Henrik Zetterberg and Dan Cleary had monster games for the Wings on Saturday night.  But did you notice Ville Leino was the third member of that line?  He somehow managed zero points in that game but coach Babcock was raving about the combo after the game.  Leino only has four points this season so he's probably available on your waiver wire.  If he can stick with Zet's we think he'll pick up that pace dramatically.

This is crazy... with two more assists last night Rich Peverley is on pace for 38 goals and 72 assists.  Peverley won't finish the year with the 110 points he's on pace for but when somebody can play at 1.35 ppg for almost 20 games, he's legit.

With Carolina's 5-4 SO win last night some Canes actually had some good nights.  Joe Corvo (1+1=2) and Ray Whitney (1+2=3), in particular.  The Canes can't get any worse than they are now and they make great buy low candidates.  Try to get them as a throw-ins as part of a bigger deal.

Injury Updates (see our Injury Updates page for a consolidated list of injuries):

Mason,steveSteve Mason has been suffering through back spasms.  No word on extent but at least we now have an excuse for his poor play.  Mathieu Garon is a great spectulative pick up right now (he'll be starting between the pipes tonight, by the way).

Sergei Gonchar has been cleared for contact in practice and could return sometime next week.  Big news for Gonchar owners

Kris Versteeg missed last night's game with a 'short term' UBI.  He doesn't sound too risky for next week but you might want to sit him if you have a decent alternative anyway.

Pavel Kubina missed Sunday night's action with some lower body soreness.  We guess the word 'soreness' is better than 'injury'.    

Bryan Little missed his second game last night with a groin strain.  He's one of the few Thrashers that's struggling (8 pts in 15 gms) so a few games off might even be a good thing.

Returning to action from the injured list last night was Shawn Horcoff

Daily Distraction 

What's distracting us today?  Did you see Luc Robitaille on the Tonight Show?  If not, check it out.  Pretty lame concept from Leno and his team but we do appreciate them trying.
