  • 4 hours Fantasy Hockey Draft Kit 2019: Three declining veterans to avoid Sportsnet
    When it gets late in drafts and you’re filling out your bench slots, it’s easy to be attracted to a big name and scoop them up thinking it’s a “safe” pick. But for players whose careers and/or production is tailing off, their upside is limited and it’s likely they’ll end up on fantasy waivers before too long. Rather than be blinded by former greatness, it’s often better to take a swing on a younger player who could hit and wind up being a regular in your lineup. If these late-rounders are waiver fodder anyway, why not think big? Here we ... more

But had negotiations between the superstar winger and the Toronto Maple Leafs stretched on to near the start of the 2019-20 NHL season, there’s a good chance they would’ve gotten even more complicated. Marner’s agent, Darren Ferris, said in an appearance on Sportsnet 590’s Prime Time Sports on Monday that an offer sheet would’ve increasingly been a factor had the two parties not agreed to a deal around Oct. 2. “As far as the offer-sheet scenario, that was something that was a real possibility during the summer and very likely ... more
