Testing The Water ... Who's Hot and Who's Cold

Each week we'll dip a toe in the fantasy pool to find out which players are hot and which ones are not. 

HotHOT

Marc Savard, Bos, C - 2+6=8 in 4 games - it's hard to find an underrated superstar, could hit 100 points this year
Kris Versteeg, Chi, W - 4+3=7 in 4 - on pace for 85 points and +46!
Jiri Hudler, Det, C - 4+2=6 in 3 - on the third line but still producing...imagine if he got moved up due to an injury
Devin Setoguchi, SJ, W - 3+3=6 in 3 - on pace for 90 points...we're starting to think he might be able to get 70 points on Thornton's line
Pavol Demitra, Van, W - 5+1=6 in 4 - his 7 goals look low but he's only played 11 games.  Buy low and wait for his next injury
David Krejci, Bos, C - 2+3=5 in 4 - his 14 points are higher than expected, some of our scouts are not convinced he's for real...yet
Brian Campbell, Chi, D - 2+5=7 in 4 - you knew he would get hot eventually...on pace for 57 points
Rob Blake & Dan Boyle, SJ, D - 0+5=5 and 2+3=5 in 3 - Do you think Tampa Bay is regretting trading Boyle?  He now leads all d-men in scoring
Bryan McCabe, Fla, D - 2+3=5 - Another great buy low candidate.  Nine points in nine games. Go for it. 
Matt Hunwick, Bos, D- 2+3=5 -
 Who?  He'll be in Beantown until Andrew Ference comes back but don't expect this production to continue.

Cold

COLD

J.P. Dumont and Jason Arnott, Nas, W - 0 points in 2 games, -3 and -2 - just a rough week for Nashville, nothing to worry about
Kyle Turris, Pho, C - 0 points in 3, -1 - we expected Turris to put up decent numbers this year.  One year too early?
Andrew Brunette, Min, W - 0 points in 3, -2 - Can anybody on Minny score? 
Todd White, Atl, C - 0 points in 3, -2 -
More concussions than points this week
Teppo Numminen, Buf, D - 0 points in 3, -5 - time to retire
Dion Phaneuf, Cal, D - 0 points in 3, -3 - yup, definitely drop this guy...he's finished
Daniel Girardi & Michal Rozsival , NYR, D - 0 points in 3, -3  - the Rangers struggles are affecting these two...bench them until the ship is righted
Shea Weber, Nas, D - 0 points in 2, -2 - just a small delay in his breakout season
