Fantasy Points by Week

    D Rank
    • Placed on waivers

      News: Raphael Diaz was placed on waivers, reports Andrew Gross of The Record.
      Analysis: More a necessary deed than a preferred transaction for the team as they cut the roster down to 23, the move allows the organization to protect Dylan McIlrath from the very same process. While most observers felt Raphael Diaz outplayed Kevin Klein in the preseason and the team brass is rumored to be actively seeking trades to loosen the roster and salary cap, it appears Diaz will join Hartford of the AHL when and if he clears waivers.
