The Wire Troll: Mike Fisher Hitting the Notes in Music City

The former Tampa Bay top pick is doing just fine with his fellow rookies in Arizona. The Coyotes may be hanging out in the league's cellar, but the youngsters are receiving quality minutes of top development. DeAngelo is one of those benefiting from...

The Wire Troll: Sam Gagner Pacing Columbus Blue Jackets

So, a fire sale should be starting any time now in Colorado. The mighty Habs systematically dismantled the Avalanche 10-1 Saturday in what was just the latest of an unusually large amount of high scoring games this season. Seriously, some of these sc...

The Wire Troll: Bryan Little Coming up Big

Stalberg has always been more of a "meat and potatoes" role player, but could the offense be coming to life for him? Maybe. He has just seven goals on the season, but he potted four of them last week. Proceed with caution.

2015-16 NHL Wire Troll All-Star Team

"Mr. Game Seven" was as reliable as usual this season, and he's got a legitimate shot at a fourth Cup. In 82 games, the former 'Cane and King (sounds like a catchy sitcom title, doesn't it?) put up 22 goals, 52 points, a plus-15 rating, 36 penalty mi...

Klein has been a beast the past few weeks, scoring at an impressive point-per-game pace with two goals, seven points, a plus-7 rating, 11 shots on goal, 14 hits and 14 blocked shots in his last seven games. With just eight goals and 21 points in 61 g...

The Wire Troll: Antoine Vermette Leads the Pack in Arizona

Vermette's overall numbers are far from impressive this season, but he may be the hottest player in the NHL for the month of March. In his last six games, the Stanley Cup champion has five goals, 10 points, a plus-6 rating, six penalty minutes, two p...

The Wire Troll: Zach Bogosian Leads Young Sabres Defense

The Sabres may still be a few years away from postseason contention, but that doesn't mean there aren't valuable Fantasy contributors in Buffalo. One of the best may be on their blue line in the form of Bogosian.

The Wire Troll: Kings Have a Jewel in Tanner Pearson

Only three players have more goals over the past 15 days than Pearson, and they've done it in one more game. In his last six games, the Kings' 2012 first rounder has five goals, six points, a plus-5 rating, 12 shots on goal, nine hits and two blocked...

The Wire Troll: Matt Beleskey – the Working Man’s Bruin

A change of scenery and an upgrade in linemates could do wonders for these players on your Fantasy team. If any are available on your league's waiver wire, you might consider taking a chance on one.

The Wire Troll: Charlie Coyle Powers Surging Wild

Eaves hasn't been a big Fantasy contributor in his career or even this season, but he's had a big string of success in recent games that should at least command part of your attention. In his past seven contests, the Dallas winger has managed to coll...

2015 RotoRob Hockey Awards

Hodgson scored just six goals and 13 points in 78 games last season, notching a league 11th-worst minus-28 rating. It was by far his worst season ever. This season, Hodgson was doing slightly better with three goals, eight points and a plus-2 rating...

The Wire Troll: Matt Dumba Shining for Dismal Wild

In the past six games, Dumba has two goals, six points, a minus-1 rating, two penalty minutes, two power play goals, 19 shots on goal, eight hits and four blocked shots. With a change in coaching staff, the former seventh overall pick could see an ex...

The Wire Troll: Sam Bennett Feeds Flames

By allowing fans to decide the All-Star roster, this is the bed the league made for itself. In MLB, NFL and, we're assuming, the NBA, the status of "All-Star" means something. It speaks to the incredible talent and accomplishments of the person recei...

The Wire Troll: Louis Domingue Thriving in Debut Season

The 2010 fifth round pick has battled his way through Major Juniors and the pro ranks, playing arguably his best puck at the ECHL level with the Atlanta Gladiators (2.10 goals against average and .930 save percentage in 43 games).

The Wire Troll: Shane Doan Leading the Pack in Arizona

Doan isn't the only one breaking out (no, that's not an acne reference given the club's youth) recently in the desert. Stone had a career week with a goal, four points, four penalty minutes, seven shots on goal, 10 hits and 13 blocked shots. He has t...

The Wire Troll: Frank Vatrano Impresses in Boston

Grabner barely registered a blip on the Fantasy radar this season until last week, collecting three goals, five points, a plus-4 rating, seven shots on goal, three hits and a block in three games with the Leafs. It's pretty impressive, still, he has...

The Wire Troll: Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes Hit Pittsburgh Penguins

The Pens were 4-3-3 in their past 10 at the time of the coaching change, dropping a point in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Friday. The move is rather an intriguing one, considering Pittsburgh was on the losing end of a tie with the...
