Fantasy Hockey 2011: Trade Targets

Buy Low: Mike Ribeiro - Dallas Stars

He doesn't get the credit he deserves and may be the quietest 70 point producing forward around. Not a huge goal scorer, he makes his living in the assist column. He's a 20 goal, 50 assist kind of guy and is often overshadowed by the "30 goal scorer". Mike Ribeiro won't put up 30 goals, but his 70 points is in the bank from season-to-season.

Sell High: Todd Bertuzzi - Detroit Red Wings

Todd is enjoying a resurgence as of late and has at least a point in 9 of his last 12 games, that's awesome but it won't last. He's actually played quite well since rejoining the Red Wings the second time around. He's good for around 40 points these days. See if you can trade him for a younger top 9 type of forward, his value is as high as it'll ever get at this point.

Buy Low: Erik Johnson - Colorado Avalanche

After a real promising 2009/10 season when he put up 39 points with the St. Louis Blues, he's failed to take it to the next level - mostly due to injuries. Same goes for this season, he hasn't got off to a great start, and has been injured. But he's the best defenceman the Avalanche got and they're going to use him a lot. Make an offer, I think things get better from here on out.

Time to sell:

Curtis Glencross is enjoying playing with Olli Jokinen a lot, 7 points in his last 7 games. Do you think he'll keep it up? Don't think so. Dainius Zubrus is on pace for 47 points this season, he hasn't seen those kind of numbers since the 2006/07 season with the Capitals. I like his line mates Petr Sykora and Patrik Elias to keep producing, not so much Zubrus.

Target these dudes:

With Sidney Crosby out, Pittsburgh will be looking for others step up either than Malkin and Neal. Chris Kunitz has done just that. 5 points in his last 3 games with more time on ice. Despite having very limited ice-time Viktor Stalberg is making the most of his opportunity. In 13 minutes, last game in Pittsburgh, Stalberg managed 9 shots - one going in.
