I've gotten pretty slack with my weekly rants. Here is the latest.
Newcomer Craig K. is handling himself rather nicely this year and wins this week on the power of the 1st line win giving them 22.05 points on the week. Clayton Keller lead the way with a 9 point week. With the likes of Keller and Thompson having career years and getting Makar and Point into form they now find themselve in 4th place. Still a fair bit away from 3rd place they still have to keep an eye in the rear view mirror as Ted P. is making a late charge up the standings.
Talking about Ted P. they collected points on all three lines and posted 21.68 to barely lose the week to Craig. They were one of five teams who tied for the 2nd line win. Not sure that has ever happened. They give themselve some breathing room for 5th with Greg L., Craig V. and Jason K. all have down weeks.
Third place on the week went to the Ice Hawks (Charlie F.) who placed 2nd on the 1st line and tied for the 2nd line win as well to add 19.58 points on the week which moves them up three places to 6th place and within reach of a money spot.
Wrapping up the top six were the Injured Reserves how had good showings on the 1st and 3rd lines to post 19.05 points on the week. More importantly with Tim H. having a down week they move to within 24 points of the lead. Aron was one of the five who tied for the 2nd line win and scrapped some more points on the other lines to tack on 16.88 points and a kind of stuck in 3rd being 40 points behind Trevor and 40 points up on Craig K. Bringing up the rear was Coops Crew with the 2nd shared win and points on the 1st line and get 14.08 points on the week and move up one spot to 9th... yeah, what ever. Honerable mention goes to the Pirates post another goose egg on their race in the Bedard sweepstakes.
Week #15 trade by Ron S. moving Rantanan (Col) to Brad for Marner seems to working out for them. Marner has been on another hot streak but Rantanen will be a force to reckon with for years to come so Brad who also owns MacKinnon will have a killer combo for years to come. You might as well say that those two have been locked in Brads Bank and we won't see them for many years.
