Here's my latest fantasy story: The Front Line: Hemsky, Moulson thrive after trades: http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=708928 - plus it includes my updated top 100 forwards for the remainder of the season.
Several players have seen a change in fantasy value since being traded, but Ales Hemsky and Matt Moulson seem to be thriving with their new teams.

My latest story breaks down how I got to my top 10 fantasy forward rankings. Plus Taylor Hall and Brandon Saad are trending up while Henrik Sedin and Alexander Semin are trending down. Check it out: http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=696358
It's difficult to rank players like Claude Giroux and Alexander Steen, but NHL.com's Matt Cubeta explains how his fantasy rankings come to be.

I really enjoyed researching the material for this fantasy story. It's about players that can help in each specific fantasy category, or as I call them, the Fantasy Specialists: http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=682418

Hey Matt, I'd like some advice here is my team:

Henrik Zetterberg Det - C,LW
Joe Thornton SJ - C
Evander Kane Wpg - LW
Jamie Benn Dal - LW
Alex Ovechkin Was - RW
Joe Pavelski SJ - C,RW
Keith Yandle Pho - D
Matt Carle TB - D
Dan Hamhuis Van - D
Seth Jones Nsh - D
Ryan Kesler Van - C (benched)
Ryan Callahan NYR - RW (benched)
Jonathan Quick LA - G
Braden Holtby Was - G
James Reimer Tor - G (benched)
Devan Dubnyk Edm - G (benched)

I have a guy in my league who wants Ovi really bad, he's offered me:

Henrik Lundqvist
Pavel Datsyuk

My concern here though is that I feel I don't really need another tender & Pavel is more of an Assist type player. I feel my team needs more goals.

What's your thoughts?

Cheers,
Cory

This week's fantasy story looked at Devils forward Jaromir Jagr, who is primed to join yet another exclusive NHL club at the young age of 41. I also provide updated top-100 forward rankings, with Alexander Semin moving up a lot, plus Alex Ovechkin being bumped out of the No. 2 spot. Have a look... http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=702656
If Jaromir Jagr scores 16 points in the Devils' final 29 games he would become only the third NHL player to reach 60 points in his age-41 season.

Here's my NHL.com fantasy hockey story about the Rangers forwards moving up in my rankings: http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=691088
The fantasy value of several Rangers forwards is on the rise, as the team has found two cohesive lines to provide balanced production of late.

Fantasy sports fanatic.
Introduction
I am an enormous New York Yankees, Rangers and Knicks fan. I probably root a bit too hard for Hiroki Kuroda, Brandon Dubinsky and Raymond Felton, but I don't care. I also happen to run NHL.com's fantasy hockey website where I write a weekly column (The Front Line) and appear on the NHL Network twice a week to talk fantasy hockey.
