Monday's Daily Dosage - R.Wilson, Stalberg, Hanson...

HEADS UP:  Our Fantasy Prospects DB was released last week... you have a prospect draft coming up? then this thing was made for you (literally)... get the details and grab a copy here.

Here's the only activity of note from yesterday...

The Avs re-signed RFA dman Ryan Wilson and forward Kevin Porter.  Wilson has turned himself into a reliable big minute dman but he's sacrificed the offense as his numbers took a step backwards last year.  He'll chip in some Hits & Blks, if that's all your after.  The major impact of his signing is on the young dmen in Colorado as assuming they also re-sign RFA Kyle Cumiskey then the Avs will have seven NHL dmen signed heading into the training camp and that doesn't give kids like Cameron Gaunce, Stefan Elliott & Tyson Barrie much hope of winning a job in camp.  Porter is a former collegiate star but his production hasn't translated to the NHL and he hasn't shown enough to prove he deserves a scoring line role.

Chicago re-signed RFA forward Viktor Stalberg to a two-year deal... he's coming off a pretty tame 24 point season but that was his first full year in the NHL and he didn't see much ice-time (averaged 10:41/gm).  The way the depth chart looks in front of him, he's probably not due to see much of an improvement in his minutes but if the stars align for him then he could land a job on a line with either Toews & Kane or Sharp & Hossa... which would be nice work if you can get it.

Christian Hanson, formerly of the Leafs, has signed a two-way deal with the Caps.  There's really not much fantasy upside with him, the real lesson here is to not be fooled by one-hit college wonders.  People were hyping up this guy as he came out of Notre Dame following a 37 GP 16+15=31 Senior season but when you notice that he only put up a combined 33 points over his first three years in school, that should have tipped you off that this guy wasn't a big point producer.
