All 2nd Half Stars & Stinkers

Alright, well you know what they say, "timing is everything"... and that's why this is nothing really as a good time to put this out would have been sometime in January around when the typical All-Star break happens but without an All-Star break this year we got a little fat & lazy and forgot about this.  Well, better late than never as we get quite a few questions about guys like this...

2nd Half Stars 

These are the guys who make a habit of turning it up after the all-star break (typically late January)... we won't ask them what they were doing in the 1st half.  Here's our All 2nd Half Stars Team:

Datsyuk F - Pavel Datsyuk - career ppg: .92 pre AS break, 1.10 post AS break.  Over his career, March has been his best month, by far (1.18 ppg).

F - Daniel Briere - career ppg: .75 pre AS break, .87 post AS break.  His career numbers in March & April (.91 ppg combined) are far better than any other months.  

Honourable mentions amongst the forwards go to Patrik Elias (.82 pre, .92 post, with a career .96 ppg in March), Scott Gomez (.77 pre, .89 post), Jason Pominville (.76 pre, .85 post, increased the past 3 years) and Mike Ribeiro (.70 pre, .79 post, increased the past 3 years).
