    Braden Holtby is on pace to break the all-time record for wins in a single season.

    Advice: Holtby earned his 32nd victory in 41 starts on Saturday.

"I've definitely followed (Holtby)," Brodeur said. "Any time that a goalie has a special season like that, it's pretty impressive. I like him. I sat down at the draft with (Caps coach Barry Trotz) and we had a lot of conversations about the way he played and the workload. He asked what I thought about it. For me, he reminds me of me a lot. Not the way he plays or whatever, but the way he puts himself out there. He's not scared. He just wants to play. I'm sure he's playing through tons of injuries. He's a warrior out there. He just looks like that. I don't know him and I don't know if he does or not, but he's having a great year and it's not just this year. Last year, he was coming on and he's going to be good for a long time for them." Rotoworld.com Today, 2:40 am

If the suspension is still at least six games in length after Bettman gives his ruling, then Wideman will have the option to take his appeal to arbitrator James Oldham. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:06 am

    Drew Stafford accounted for three points in the Jets’ 4-2 win against the Avalanche on Saturday night.

    Advice: Stafford scored twice on six shots and had an assist in 14:43. He had gone eight games without a goal. Stafford isn’t much of a fantasy (16 goals, 28 points) factor, though perhaps a team in real life would take him off the Jets’ hands if they took on some money? Mathieu Perreault (goal, assist) and Andrew Ladd picked up the other markers. Mark Scheifele amassed 12 penalty minutes. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:14 pm
  • Matt Duchene nets 24th in loss to Winnipeg

    Jonas Hiller made 34 saves in the Flames’ 4-1 win against the Canucks on Saturday night.

  • Ryan Miller stops 26 shots in Canucks' loss
    Ryan Miller gave up two goals on 28 shots in the Canucks’ 4-1 loss to the Flames on Saturday night.

  • Dennis Wideman issues statement on suspension
    Dennis Wideman issued a statement regarding his 20-game suspension.

    Advice: "Firstly, I want to apologize to Donnie Henderson," Wideman said. "I feel awful about what happened. Hopefully, he’s recovering, and he’s going to be back on the ice soon, but I feel really bad about the whole situation. The last seven days have been tough. ... As far as the suspension goes, I’m really disappointed with the decision and the length of the suspension. I did not have any intent at any time to hit the official or hurt him or anything like that. I would never do something like that, and I’m pretty disappointed with the decision." The NHLPA has already appealed the suspension on his behalf, asserting that they have "medical evidence" that they believe shows Wideman didn't intentionally hit Henderson. Wideman did absorb a hit prior to the incident with a linesman that could have injured or concussed him, but he didn't undergo the concussion protocol so that would be troubling if true.

    Advice: The 35-year-old has just one win in his last five decisions. Miller has an 11-14-7 record with a 2.71 goals-against-average and a .913 save percentage this season. His fantasy owners may want to start him in a game against a team at the bottom of the standings. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:26 pm
  • NHLPA appeals Dennis Wideman's suspension
    The NHLPA will appeal Dennis Wideman's 20-game suspension for hitting on linesman Don Henderson.

    Advice: "We strongly disagree with the League’s decision to suspend Dennis Wideman," the NHLPA said in a statement. "Dennis has played in 11 NHL seasons and almost 800 games without incident. The facts, including the medical evidence presented at the hearing, clearly demonstrate that Dennis had no intention to make contact with the linesman. An appeal has been filed on the player’s behalf." Wideman's 20-game suspension makes sense in the interest of protecting the officials from any potential retribution from the players. Without officials clearly being off limits from physical violence, the integrity of the game is diminished. That said, if the NHLPA can prove that Wideman never intended to hit Henderson then that's another matter entirely. "The medical evidence" may refer to evidence that Wideman had been concussed as a result of a previous hit, which would be problematic if true because he didn't undergo the concussion protocol.

  • Dennis Wideman receives 20-game suspension
    Dennis Wideman has been suspended for 20 games for his hit on linesman Don Henderson.

    Advice: That's obviously a huge suspension by the NHL's standards, but it feels deserved in this case. While Wideman insisted that he didn't intentionally hit Henderson, the footage makes that hard to believe. Ultimately though, it is critical to the integrity of the game that officials are off limits from any sort of physical contact on the part of the players. The NHL needed to firmly establish that what Wideman did is completely unacceptable and this suspension sends that signal. All that being said, Wideman has the right to appeal a suspension of this length, so we'll have to see what happens there. If he doesn't appeal or attempt to, but fails to win it, then he'll be eligible to return on March 14. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:53 am

    Shayne Gostisbehere leads all rookie defensemen in goals and points.

    Advice: The amazing thing is that Gostisbehere was called up in mid-November, missing the first six weeks of the season. He has eight goals and 22 points and should be considered in Calder talk. Gostisbehere is third in the NHL among rookies in points per game, trailing only Connor McDavid and Artemi Panarin. He is a must own and keep in pools. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 7:17 am
  • Braden Holtby could set NHL record
    Braden Holtby has 30 wins this season and a great second half could allow him to break Martin Brodeur's record of 48 wins in a season.

    Advice: The Capitals have played only 47 games, the least in the NHL, thanks to a couple of postponements due to the snowstorm that struck the Eastern Coast last weekend. Washington plays 35 games in 71 days once the NHL schedule resumes on Tuesday so figure that Holtby will get at least 27 starts, so he needs 19 wins to set the record. He could do it and is now the overwhelming favorite for the Vezina at the break. Rotoworld.com Jan 30, 7:15 am

  • Should D. Wideman get a 10-game suspension?
    TSN's Gary Lawless feels Dennis Wideman should be suspended for hitting linesman Don Henderson during Wednesday's game.

    Advice: Wideman argued that the collision wasn't intentional, but as Lawless argues, "He didn’t just bump into Henderson. He put his hands on his back and shoved him to the ice." He's therefore arguing that Wideman's actions are subject to Rule 40.3, which punishes players who "deliberately applies physical force to an official" with an automatic 10-game suspension. Thus far there's been no indication that Wideman will get such a punishment, but it's the All-Star break, so the NHL doesn't necessarily need to act swiftly if it intends to do anything.
