This is the Sunday edition of hockey news that has happened this past week concerning who's hot, who's not, who's traded and who's injured.
Mike Fisher - Predators
It seems that that the Senators are preparing for sell mode now that their season is lost (hint, hint Spezza owners). In the case of Fisher, it's a good move for him. In seasons past, he's averaged in the high 40's to low 50's in points and a good amount of PIM's so he's a solid player as a C2 or C3 depending on your league. However, it's clearly a down year for him but I think the change in scenery can help him out for the rest of the season since the Predators have plenty of young talent to go around and are more defensively fortified so his +/- will go up along with everything else. Give him a shot if you need some help all around in stats.

Martin Brodeur - Devils
Brodeur and Devils have made an amazing about face from the first half of the season struggles to being one of the hottest teams in the NHL. However, shortly after I posted the previous Weekend Review, Brodeur injured his knee during the game. At first it was a knee bruise but then it became a knee sprain. The latest report says that he's getting better and walking without any issues but is still some time away from playing. This means that Johan Hedberg is a solid option for the next few days for those with Brodeur or if you want to mess with Brodeur owners.
Max Pacioretty - Canadians
Ever since he's been paired up with Tomas Plekanec and Brian Gionta, he's done quite well with them, registering 7 points (3 goals, 4 assists) in 7 games since the All-Star Break. The Habs are trying to make more opportunities on the even strength play and so far Pacioretty has responded well. He's well worth the waiver wire claim as a bench winger or maybe a starter if injuries call for it.
Kris Versteeg - Flyers
He was traded for two draft picks from the Maple Leafs to the Flyers. The Flyers are quite a deep team but this could stand to benefit Versteeg since he's a solid player and if he's around enough talent like they have at Philly, he might warrant some consideration. Don't pick him up but certainly keep a close eye on him and see how Philly plans to use him since he was seeing a decent amount of ice time but alot of Power Play time.
