The Ottawa Senators had trouble scoring in 2013, but with D Erik Karlsson and C Jason Spezza healthy, there is a good chance that they will be able to score more often in 2013-2014. Uchenna Nwosu Chargers Jersey . Top Picks: While some players coming an injury-marred season might have shaky value, that wont be the case for D Erik Karlsson, who only played 17 games because of an Achilles injury, but hes such a ridiculous offensive performer that he has an argument for being a first-round pick because he has 92 points in 98 games over the past two seasons. His 0.94 is best among defenceman; Pittsburghs Kris Letang (0.93) is the only other defenceman over 0.75 points per game in the last two years. Karlsson also registered 4.65 shots on goal per game last season. Its obviously a small sample, but the only defencemen to ever average more in a season (min. 10 GP) are Bobby Orr and Raymond Bourque. On the heels of losing Daniel Alfredsson as a free agent, the Senators made a deal for RW Bobby Ryan, a net upgrade in talent. Last season, Ryan had 11 goals in 46 games (a career-low 0.24 gpg), yet he ranks 14th with 142 goals since 2008-2009, tied for sixth with 106 goals at even strength. In Anaheim, Ryan didnt always get first unit power play time, something that should change in Ottawa, where his goal-scoring will be welcome, making Ryan a low-end No. 1 and high level No. 2 right winger. Understand, coming into the season, that G Craig Anderson is going to see his numbers regress -- he will not have a .941 save percentage over a full season, for example -- but his .919 save percentage since 2007-2008 ranks seventh and hes the starter for what appears to be a strong team so, even with regression, hes a decent No. 1 fantasy goaltender. Value Plays: Since 2005-2006, C Jason Spezza has scored 545 points in 500 games, his 1.09 points per game ranking fifth (minimum 200 games played) in that span. Trouble is, Spezza has missed at least 20 games in three of the last four seasons, including last year when back woes cost him 43 of 48 games. Obviously, Spezza is quite valuable when hes in the lineup, but it becomes a risk-reward pick for fantasy owners when you go into the season expecting a player to miss a significant amount of time. As much as C Kyle Turris has improved and seen his role increase in Ottawa, scoring 58 points in 97 games, he has yet to score even 30 points in an NHL season. As a late-round pick, playing on the potential of a 23-year-old, sure, hes worth a look, but keep expectations in check. LW Clarke MacArthur had back-to-back 20-goal seasons in Toronto before his role was reduced in 2013. If he lands a top-six role with the Senators, another 20-goal season could be within reach. Sleepers/Breakthrough: Its not secret that LW Milan Michalek can score, and a spot on Jason Spezzas wing is a nice place to work but, like Spezza, Michalek comes with an injury risk, having missed at least 15 games in three of the last four seasons. Hes a five-time 20-goal scorer, topping out at 35 in 2011-2012, but any pick of Michalek has to be done with expectations that hell miss some time. It took some time for C/LW Mika Zibanejad to adjust to North America, managing a modest 11 points in 23 AHL games before adding 20 points in 42 NHL games. Hes already established that hes an NHLer, but Zibanejad may not play in enough of an offensive role to generate fantasy interest so soon. Now that Sergei Gonchar is toiling in Dallas, D Patrick Wiercioch is looking at a favourable opportunity to handle more minutes in his second NHL season. G Robin Lehner has given every indication that hes going to be a very good starting goaltender in the league, posting a .936 save percentage in 17 NHL games over the last two seasons. He doesnt have great value as long as he sits behind Anderson on the depth chart but, as backups go, Lehner is one of the best so long as he continues his career on this path. Rookies: The Senators might have a few rookies challenging for spots in the lineup, but they dont initially appear to be relevant for fantasy purposes. C Jean-Gabriel Pageau had 10 points in 19 (regular season plus playoff) games for Ottawa last season, but after 29 points in 69 AHL games, he cant be expected to take a scoring role. RW Mark Stone is another candidate for a spot on a scoring line, after scoring 38 points in 54 AHL games as a rookie pro last season. If Stone lands a regular spot, then he might have value but, right now, its too soon to make that projection.

It was considered unlikely that Rielly would be loaned to Canada for the tournament, which begins Dec. 26 in Malmo, Sweden, though a stretch of three straight games in the press box made it something of a debate. http://www.chargersauthenticofficialonline.com/authentic-caleb-sturgis-jersey.html .S. -- Carl-Antoine Delisle snapped a tie in the third period with his second goal of the game to lead the Tigres past Cape Breton 4-3 in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action Wednesday as Victoriaville won its eighth in a row.Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - There are still 10 undefeated teams left at the Division I level with less than a month gone in the 2014-15 season. Some of those squads who have yet to suffer a loss are familiar names, as nobody is surprised that talent-rich programs like Kentucky, Duke and Arizona are all sitting pretty with a goose egg in the loss column. For teams like TCU (8-0), Colorado State (8-0), Northern Iowa (8-0) and Washington (7-0), the undefeated look is a new one. The real intrigue now lies in determining which squads are for real, and which are destined for a harsh dose of reality in the coming weeks. In Fort Worth, fans may be consumed by disappointment over TCUs rejection from the College Football Playoff, but the Horned Frogs faithful have had plenty to cheer about on the court. TCU has never been much of a basketball power, with only two NCAA Tournament appearances in the last 40 years. The Horned Frogs have had a losing record in eight of the last nine seasons, including a 9-22 debacle in 2013-14. That is what makes their 8-0 success rate through the month of November and the beginning of December so startling. Sure, they have yet to really take down any team considered top notch, although triumphs over Mississippi State (61-52) and on the road against Ole Miss (66-54) are solid for sure. However, just the fact that the Horned Frogs are within reach of 10 wins before February is an accomplishment. TCUs success has been and will need to continue to be built on defense, as it ranks 10th in the country in opponent field goal percentage (.349). With a roster made up of a host of supplementary scorers (Kyan Anderson (12.5 ppg) is the only consistent double-digit threat), the Horned Frogs better hope their defense holds up. The Pac-12 has two of the remaining unbeaten teams, but Washington wasnt the lock to have the kind of the start that Arizona was. Coming off back-to-back seasons with moderate success, the Huskies did not seem to be headed in the right direction and that meant the heat was increasing under Lorenzo Romars seat on the bench. A 6-0 start didnt exactly wipe all that away, but the seventh win might have bought Romar some more time. The Huskies hosted then No. 13 San Diego State on Sunday and thanks tto some suffocating defense, escaped with a 49-36 victory. Kyzir White Jersey. Was it a pretty win? Absolutely not, but it counts just the same as any of its previous victories in the standings. In the minds of college basketball fans and pundits alike, it weighs even heavier. As with TCU, Washington can thank its commitment to defense for not only its win over the Aztecs, but its overall success. The Huskies are sixth in the country in opponent field goal percentage (.336), thanks to some excellent rim protection. They are blocking seven shots per game, which is tied for sixth in the nation. Robert Upshaw leads the way, swatting four shots per contest. Length, first of all, Romar said when asked why his team has been so strong defensively. We have more shot blockers as opposed to last year when we were so small that if you got near the rim we wouldnt make you pay for it. But this year we make you pay for it. Of course, for all the defensive superlatives for the Horned Frogs and Huskies, they are still ranked outside the top-30 in terms of adjusted defensive efficiency according to the Ken Pomeroy College Basketball Ratings. That fact makes the hopes of continued domination seem that much more precarious, especially as these teams enter January and the crunch of playing teams from power conferences every night. Meanwhile, Colorado State and Northern Iowa may be able to hide a bit in the more diluted Mountain West and Missouri Valley Conferences, respectively. That is not to say that the Rams and Panthers are not strong teams. Colorado State has wins over Georgia State (80-70) and UC Santa Barbara (65-63), which are impressive at the mid-major level. Northern Iowa has its fair share of mid-major wins, a 79-77 overtime triumph at Stephen F. Austin perhaps the most eye-opening. The Panthers also defeated Virginia Tech (73-54) and Northwestern (61-42) to log some wins against power conference teams, albeit weaker ones. It also is worth mentioning that of the teams discussed above, Northern Iowa is the second-highest in Pomeroys overall ratings, sitting at 38th. Washington is ranked 35th, while TCU (58) and Colorado State (70) are further down the list. The Huskies (17) and Panthers (23) are the only teams ranked in AP Top-25 as well.
