|Week 6 update|
No weird stats this week. I know you are disappointed
Weekly win, with 30.00 points goes to Cooper thanks to a 2nd line win (tie), and a 2nd place finishes on both 1st and 3rd lines. Not a bad week at all! He moves up 4 places in the standings to find his way into the overall top five, landing 3rd overall. Coop had a good week from almost everyone in his lineup during the week, and funny enough Malkin was the only player not to put up at least one point. Had he chipped in with his usual 2 or 3 points Coop would have won 2nd line on his own and had an even better week, and moved up to 2nd overall.
Second place, with 25.00 points goes to Charlie, who moves up two spots to finish 8th overall. Charlie and Coop were almost tied at the hip this week as they both tied for 2nd on both 2nd and 3rd lines. The only difference between the two was Charlies “poor” 4th place finish on 1st line. Pathetic! Charlie rolled off the success this week of his Columbus players – as Panarin, Wennberg, Foligno & Werenski combined for 11 points. Something to be said for loading up on players from one team!
Third place goes to Tim who finished with 15.80 points thanks to his 3rd line win. It was probably a surprise win when the week started and both Scheifele and Wheeler only had two games. But, when those two combine for 13 points in those two games a line win becomes all the more possible. Tim continues his flip flopping in the top five, this week moving up two spots to 2nd overall. If the trend continues, next week he’ll drop two spots back down to 5th. Let’s hope that happens (says the person currently in 5th)!
Honorable mention goes to Ted who won 1st line but could not manage anything else. As per normal with Ted it is feast or famine based on what Boston does. Back in the day he lived and died with Chicago, safe to say Boston is the new Chicago!
Four trades completed since the last update, the biggest name moving saw Craig move out Seth Jones to Ron in exchange for some depth pieces. Ron continues his assault on acquiring big names on the backend, time will tell if some of these guys are just off to bad starts, or are simply going to have a bad year. I’m looking at you Nick Leddy and Alex Pietrangelo.
Best of luck this week!
Remember we are determining what a free agents position is at the time of pickup. We have agreed that we would be using The Hockey News - http://www.thehockeynews.com under the "Depth Chart" link for each team to determine a player/’s position. UPDATE ** The position will be the one stated on the "Dept Chart" web page.
