    Gaudreau targeted by the opposition? Hold the presses. That happens to every team. The first thing I thought when I heard this was ….Karma! You have Ferland running around like an idiot, targeting other team’s better players (stars?) What goes around came around. Not that I’m advocating injuring other players, and I do hope Gaudreau is back sooner rather than later, but pay back happens in many ways.

    My RAT RIVER BUNKHOUSE fantasy team is sucking hind tit in the NationDrafts. My overall rank is 1900 with 224 points. There is a lot of fantasy players in the top 20 from Edmonton. I suppose they have been living in fantasy land for so long is gives them an edge.
