Tweetoff with logos2
 

We asked the experts eight questions and their answers couldn't be longer than a tweet... aka the Fantasy Hockey Tweet Off.

We welcome Just Fantasy Hockey to the fold.  They join Fantasy Hockey 911, Fantasy Sense and Fantasy Hockey Coach on our expert panel.  Give them a look... they all offer some great fantasy advice.

This is our 2nd tweet-off, if you're interested what our experts had to say after the beginning of the season check out the October edition.

Now on to the show...

FANTASY HART
(so far)

ANZE KOPITAR
It took a mental start (14+19=33 in 24 GP) and an injury to Ovie to get Anze the Hart.

RYAN MILLER His stats through Nov 24 projected out over 65 starts: 46-11-8, 1.97 GAA, .932 SV% and 8 shutouts

ANZE KOPITAR
All Hail the King, who is dominating the ice this season.

ANZE KOPITAR Fantasy is all about return on investment and owners have to be thrilled with Kopitar’s breakthrough.  He has slowed of late but has earned the Hart so far.

SIDNEY CROSBY
Despite being right around a point per game, Crosby has 35 PIM’s, 3 GWG, over 80 SOG & no one is close in face off wins.  Sid is the complete package in what could appear as subtle form.

FANTASY VEZINA
(so far)

RYAN MILLER T2nd in Wins, 2nd in SV% and 1st in GAA.  We'd buy that for a dollar... unfortunately he costs a lot more than a dollar in auctions.

RYAN MILLER
He’s on fire!  For those who grew up in Southern Ontario in the 1980s, the Buffalo fire jokes never get old.

RYAN MILLER
Check out his stats they are simply outstanding.

RYAN MILLER
Just look at the numbers: 12 wins, 2 SO, 1.97 GAA and SV% of .931.  Miller has been dominate so far, getting minimal offensive support.

EVGENI NABOKOV
Nabby is 14-3-0 with a .926 SV% and a 2.19 GAA.  He could approach an NHL record 50 wins on this Sharks powerhouse.

FANTASY NORRIS
(so far)

CHRIS PRONGER
He's a few points behind the d-men point leaders but he gets the nod because of what he's done in PIM's (28) and plus/minus (+13).

MIKE GREEN
After his initial quarter he has provided FHS with the opportunity to tell Mr. Hockey93 to Tweet Off.

CHRIS PRONGER
He brings it every night and gives you stats in every category.

MIKE GREEN
Hard to nominate him for any trophy with "Norris" on it as he really is a 4th forward.  That said, can’t disputer PPG production from the point.

DREW DOUGHTY
With no true clear cut stand away, Doughty gets my vote because of his 6 goals, 20 pts and PP exploits. No D man has more GWG's and he’s even a plus-4.

BIGGEST BREAK
OUT

DUSTIN PENNER
Should top last's years pathetic 39 points before Christmas.  All hail Pat Quinn.

ANZE KOPITAR
As much as I love Price, I wanted the Habs to draft Kopitar in 2005. As good as Kopitar has been, I still think I was wrong.

DREW DOUGHTY
He will only get better and seems to be on the scoresheet each night; future multiply Norris winner.

JAMES NEAL
Neal had a productive rookie year but who saw this coming?  He has quickly become one of the league’s top young power forwards..

JAMES NEAL Lots of guys could go here at this point, but Neal has been an absolute force on Brad Richard's left side.

BIGGEST BREAK
DOWN

ALEX KOVALEV We're not sure a 40 point pace can even count as a breakdown with this enigma.  Oh Dany boy, why did you have to leave so soon?

JASON SPEZZA
After producing 269 points in 211 games from 2005-08, Spezza's trying to get another coach fired with 86 pts in his last 101.

MARTIN HAVLAT
He is on pace for 32 points, not what Wild fans were hoping for when he signed in Minnesota.

ERIC STAAL
Was a machine in last year’s playoff run, but he hasn’t been healthy this year.  Started with just five points in 13 games and now he’s on the IR.

JASON SPEZZA
I get sick thinking about how bad he's playing. One goal? Shoot the damn puck!

ONE MUST OWN GUY

COREY PERRY On pace 50 goals, 100 points and 100 PIM's... best five tool fantasy player out there.  He's good and he keeps getting better.

COREY PERRY
The RW position is not as deep as it used to be and 100 pts and 100 PIM’s has not been seen from the wing since Shanahan in 1994.

ALEX OVECHKIN Despite missing a few weeks the Gr8 will still lead the league in goals and shots.

ZACH BOGOSIAN
At 19, Bogosian is already a stud.  He scores, hits, fights and is getting tons of ice-time in ATL.  He won’t be affordable this time next year.

ILYA KOVALCHUK
People were staying away on draft day. Not me. Best second round pick with minimal injury risk. Can score from anywhere.

CRAZY
FREE AGENT PICKUP

ERIK COLE
With only three points he should be available.  The Canes are playing much better and his buddy Staal is coming back soon…  chemistry galore (15 pts in 17 gms last year).

ANDREI KOSTITSYN
15% owned. Playing on the Canadiens first line with Plekanec and Cammalleri he has awoken from his Vodka induced slumber.

PAUL KARIYA
He is finally healthy and has too much skill for this slump to continue.

FRANS NIELSEN Nielsen quietly put up 33 points in 59 games last year.  The 25-year-old Dane has nine points in 17 games and is getting up to 20 minutes a night for the Isles.

Not really sure what constitutes as "out on a limb" at this point. How about PATRICE BERGERON? I still say he hits 70 pts and is only 24% owned in Y! leagues.

OUT ON A LIMB PREDICT-ION

RYAN MALONE
increases his career high by more than 20 points and finishes with 70-80 points this season.

TUUKKA RASK will be the starter in Boston by the playoffs and the Bruins will be searching for ways to give Palmateer's $4M to Marc Savard.

JOHN TAVARES carries the Islanders into the playoffs.

PHIL KESSEL will score 40 goals in 70 games.  Ron Wilson is going to give him all the ice-time he needs to get there.

SIDNEY CROSBY scores 50 goals and passes 100 PIMs this season.
