Afternoon Player Notes in the Draft (Feb 3)

As expected last week, the NHL announced the full suspension for Calgary Flames defenseman Dennis Wideman, after his incident with a lines in the team's final game before the break.  Wideman was handed a 20-game ban on Tuesday and that begins tonight, when the Flames host the Hurricanes, but the suspension is eligible for the appeals process, which could very well take it down some.

With only about 30 games left on the schedule for the Flames 20 games (or slightly less) will put a pretty big dent into what Wideman can do for Mike in the hockey pool.  Unfortunately, suspensions don't count towards the PIM pool or else his team might have a shot at a prize.  His second round Waiver Draft pick might be well used to be rid of the suspended defender.
