The biggest and brightest from the past week in Fantasy Land, as voted by FHS writers.
Three Stars of the Week:
3rd Star, from the Toronto Maple Leafs, numero 3, Dion Phaneuf... 4 games,1+5=6 with 13 SOG, but surprisingly, no PIM. No complaints from his owners though. Phaneuf is averaging 26:28 TOI and has already crept up over 28 minutes a couple of times. FHS Votes: 2 seconds.
2nd Star, from the Ottawa Senators, numero 19, Jason Spezza... 3+4=7 in three games. Playing on arguably the worst team in the league, Spezza currently sits 3rd in league scoring and is dragging Michalek along for the ride. FHS Votes: 1 second, 2 thirds.
1st Star, from the Los Angeles Kings, numero 32, Jonathan Quick... in an incredible three game streak, Quick faced 83 shots and stopped them all. Beyond Brian Boucher's unlikely five gamer in 03-04, you'd have to go back to 1949 to find the last goalie to record four straight shutouts. Quick will have that chance on Tuesday against the Devils. FHS Votes: 5 firsts.Matt Read, PHI - 3GP, 4 points (1G, 3A) and a +3. Did all of his damage in one game, but oh, what a glorious game it was.
HM: None! Read is the unanimous FHS choice.
Breakout Star of the Week: Tyler Seguin, BOS - Seguin takes it down for the second week running with 3GP, 2G, 2A, and a +4, including 3 points in just 13:25 TOI against the Leafs. This cat has arrived.
Breakdown of the Week: Bobby Ryan, ANH - Keith Yandle had this one all but wrapped up until his 11th hour effort last night against the Ducks. Bobby Ryan had no such luck and finished the week with no points, no PIMs, and a measly 2 SOG in 3GP.
Free Agent Star of the Week (less than 50% owned in Yahoo!): Alexander Burmistrov, WPG (6% owned). We're not suggesting you run out and grab him in single season leagues, but 4GP, 2G, 3A, +2, 4 PIM, 8 SOG, 1 PPP is a pretty sweet bottom line for a 6% owned player.
