The biggest and brightest from the past week in Fantasy Land...
Three Stars of the Week:
1st Star, from the Atlanta Thrashers, numero 33, Dustin Byfuglien... he had both a four point game & a 10 shot game last week... loco... 2+4=6, plus-4 & 17 shots in only three games last week.
Rookie Star of the Week: Kevin Shattenkirk, Col - for the second week in a row, it's the Avs dman as he followed up four points in week#6 with 2+3=5 in three games last week.
Breakout Star of the Week: Ondrej Pavelec, Atl - his big week moved him into the top three in both gaa (1.62) & sv% (.949).
Breakdown of the Week: Niklas Backstrom, Min - came into the week with 2.11 gaa & .932 sv% and after giving up 13 goals in two games he exits the week with a 2.66 & .916... ouch. Drew Doughty also kinda blew last week with no points, minus-2 with only four shots and is on pace for 32 pts after breaking out with 59 last year.
Free Agent Star of the Week (less than 50% owned in Yahoo!): Ondrej Pavelec, Atl (48% owned) - just barely made the cut and he'll likely be above 50% owned within a few hours. Honourable mention to Kevin Shattenkirk (18%) and Ryan Malone (24%) who both had solid weeks.
