Wild's Mara Suspended at AHL

News: Paul Mara has been suspended for three games for leaving the bench and getting into an altercation at Houston of the AHL, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: With Marco Scandella and Jonas Brodin hurt, Paul Mara could be an option with further Wild injuries on the blue line. However, this suspension won't make him an option in the first week of the NHL season.

Mara Signs Minor League Deal With Wild

News: Paul Mara has signed a minor league contract with Minnesota, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: With Marco Scandella and Jonas Brodin hurt, the Wild are thin on the blue line. Paul Mara could get called up early in the season as a result.

New Hab Mara Practices

News: Mara, acquired by Montreal from Anaheim early Thursday morning, practiced with his new teammates Friday, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Mara was not able to get to Edmonton in time for Thursday night's game against the Oilers, so he watched that one from a press box. He'll suit up Sunday for the Heritage Classic against Calgary.

Habs Acquire Mara From Ducks

News: The Ducks have traded Mara back to the Canadiens for a fifth-round pick in the 2012 draft, the Associated Press reports.
Analysis: Mara hadn't played since Jan. 18 and had often been a healthy scratch for Anaheim this season, and was even more expendable when the Ducks re-acquired Francois Beauchemin last week. The Habs are going through some injuries on the blue line, so perhaps the veteran will fill a depth role right away. Either way, this has become a deep position for the Habs, even when you factor in the loss of Andrei Markov.

Ducks' Mara Finally Draws Into The Lineup

News: Mara played Tuesday for the first time in a month, the Associated Press reports.
Analysis: Mara reportedly has been a healthy scratch for 15 of the last 16 games. Obviously it's tough to rely on someone in fantasy circles who takes to the ice so infrequently.

Mara Scores Game-Winner For the Ducks

News: Mara scored the game-winning goal for the Ducks with 1.7 seconds left against the Predators on Sunday night.
Analysis: The goal was Mara's first since February 2009. Mara once was a potent force on the power play, but he doesn't have any power-play points this year and had a pretty disappointing season with the Habs last year.

Mara Signs with Ducks

News: Mara has signed a one-year contract with the Ducks worth $750,000, reports the Los Angeles Times.
Analysis: The Ducks are having issues with defenseman Toni Lydman's health (experiencing double vision), so they brought in Mara to help strengthen their back line depth.

Mara opts for season-ending surgery

News: The Sports Xchange reports Canadiens D Paul Mara, who has missed the last 20 games with a shoulder injury, has gone home to Boston and will have season-ending shoulder surgery.
Analysis: Mara has played his last game for the Canadiens because he's on a one-year contract and there are no plans to bring him back next season. It was a very disappointing stint for Mara since it was marred by injury. Mara had no goals, eight assists and a minus-16 rating in 43 games. Mara is likely to latch on with another team, but his days of being a 40-point threat appear to be in the past. Drop Mara in all Fantasy formats. He will be a low-end flier on Draft Day 2010.

Mara skates on his own

News: The Montreal Gazette reports that Canadiens D Paul Mara (upper body) skated on his own before practice on Tuesday.
Analysis: Mara has just eight points in 43 games this season and remains only worth worrying about in deeper formats when healthy. He has not had a good first season with Montreal.

Mara held out a third game

News: Montreal D Paul Mara (upper body) missed his third straight game on Wednesday against the Lightning. He did not make the Florida trip, which included a game Tuesday against the Panthers.
Analysis: Since leaving Phoenix a few seasons ago, Mara's offensive game has all but vanished. He has just eight points in 43 games this season and remains only worth worrying about in deeper formats when healthy. He has not had a good first season with Montreal, which has been slowed by injuries at times.

Analysis: Since leaving Phoenix a few seasons ago, Mara's offensive game has all but vanished. He has just eight points in 43 games this season and remains only worth worrying about in deeper formats. Bench him for Fantasy Week 17 (Jan. 25-31).

Mara returns from five-game absence

News: Canadiens D Paul Mara was back in the lineup on Sunday against the Sabres after missing five games with a hand/wrist injury. He had no points in 14:02 of ice time and finished at even. He has no points in his last 13 games.
Analysis: Mara missed some time earlier in December with an upper-body injury, but his latest setback was not believed to be related. Mara has no goals, seven assists and a minus-12 rating in 35 games. He has not played well in his first year with the Habs. Mara has low-end Fantasy appeal when healthy.

Paul Mara

Mara's return remains uncertain

News: The Sports Xchange reports Canadiens D Paul Mara suffered a hand injury late in the second period of the Dec. 21 game in Atlanta, and he returned to Montreal the following day for treatment. He has joined the team on its four-game post-Christmas road trip but his hand and wrist are still swollen and there's no word on when he's expected back in the lineup.
Analysis: Mara missed some time earlier in December with an upper-body injury, but this latest setback is not believed to be related. Mara has no goals, seven assists and a minus-12 rating in 34 games. He has not played well in his first year with the Habs. Mara has low-end Fantasy appeal when healthy.

Opening on blue line paves Mara's return

News: Montreal's Roman Hamrlik did not play Thursday against the Wild one night after leaving Wednesday night's game with a knee injury. With Hamrlik out, Montreal's defense was bolstered by the return of Paul Mara, who missed five games because of an upper body injury. Mara had no points in 21:34 of ice time and finished at plus-1.
Analysis: Mara hasn't been practicing much over the last week, but it seems he has done enough to get back into the Montreal lineup. He still doesn't have a point in 10 games and isn't doing much on offense in 2009-10. In fact, his defense has also been a little suspect with a minus-12 rating. Mara has low-end Fantasy appeal when healthy.

12/16/2009

Paul Mara, D, MON Mara scratched a fifth game

Paul Mara

Mara scratched a fifth game

News: Canadiens D Paul Mara (upper body) was unable to play on Wednesday against the Devils. He has been sidelined for five games and remains day to day.
Analysis: Mara is going for therapy on his undisclosed upper-body injury, but he is not making a speedy recovery. We are surprised he hasn't landed on IR. Mara is a towering presence on the blue line, but he is no longer a top offensive threat. He has low-end Fantasy appeal when healthy.

12/14/2009

Paul Mara, D, MON Mara still out on Monday

Paul Mara

Mara still out on Monday

News: Canadiens D Paul Mara (upper body) did not return to the lineup on Monday against the Sabres. He has missed the last four games and remains day to day.
Analysis: Mara could use some time off since he hasn't recorded a point in his last nine games and his offensive game has been weak since opening the season with four assists in his first four games. Mara is a towering presence on the blue line, but he is no longer a top offensive threat. He has low-end Fantasy appeal.

12/13/2009

Paul Mara, D, MON Mara hasn't practiced since injury

Paul Mara

Mara hasn't practiced since injury

News: The Sports Xchange reports Canadiens D Paul Mara left the Monday's game against Philadelphia with an upper-body injury. The Canadiens say Mara is day-to-day but he hasn't practiced since the injury and has missed three games.
Analysis: Mara could use some time off since he hasn't recorded a point in his last nine games and his offensive game has been weak since opening the season with four assists in his first four games. Mara is a towering presence on the blue line, but he is no longer a top offensive threat. He has low-end Fantasy appeal.

Paul Mara

Mara suffers upper-body injury

News: Canadiens defenseman Paul Mara left Monday's game against the Flyers with an upper body injury in the second. He did not return. Mara had no points and a minus-1 rating in 4:58 of ice time.
Analysis: Mara has no points in his last eight games and is minus-5 in that span. He started well in his first season with the Canadiens, but has definitely hit a cold streak since late October with just two point since Oct. 24. Mara is a towering presence on the blue line, but he is no longer a top offensive threat. He has low-end Fantasy appeal when healthy. He is also a flier in leagues that reward heavily for PIM and short-handed stats.

Paul Mara

Mara still without a goal this season

News: Montreal D Paul Mara has still not scored a goal this season. He has just seven points on the season overall, failing to tally an assist since Nov. 20.
Analysis: Mara got off to a decent start this season but has slowed down in terms of scoring. He is not a great offensive blueliner and should remain active only in the deepest of leagues.

Paul Mara

Mara off to fast start in 2009-10

News: Canadiens D Paul Mara has four assists in six games this season, after only putting 21 points all of 2008-09. He also has 19 penalty minutes, although a disappointing minus-5 rating leaves something to be desired.
Analysis: Mara is off to a nice start this season, but his ice time will surely be cut if his plus/minus rating continues to slide. Only worry about him in deeper leagues.

10/7/2009

Paul Mara, D, MON Mara has three assists in three games

Paul Mara

Mara has three assists in three games

News: Canadiens D Paul Mara tallied two assists and finished at plus-1 during Tuesday's game against the Flames. He has now has three assists in three contests.
Analysis: With the injury to Andrei Markov (foot), Mara is going to play a more starring role on the Habs' blue line. Mara flashed 30-assist potential back in the day before landing on his feet in New York. He definitely has the potential to be a Fantasy sleeper in 2009-10 and his fast start is great news.

Paul Mara

Mara signs with Canadiens

News: The Canadiens have signed free agent D Paul Mara to a one-year contract, adding size and experience to their group of defensemen.
Analysis: The 29-year-old Mara had five goals and 16 assists in 76 games with the New York Rangers last season. He has 63 career goals for the Rangers, Tampa Bay, Phoenix and Boston. He remains pretty much just a flier in leagues that reward heavily for PIM and short-handed stats.
