Fantasy Stars of the Week - Week#2

New, 3 comments


The biggest and brightest from the past week in Fantasy Land...

Three Stars of the Week:

3rd Star, from the Boston Bruins, numero 30, Tim Thomas... only played twice last week but stopped 73 of 75 shots in back-to-back victories over the Caps.

2nd Star, from the Calgary Flames, numero 17, Rene Bourque... started the week recovering from a concussion but finished it with 6+1=7 & 17 shots.

1st Star, from the Tampa Bay Lightning, numero 91, Steve Stamkos... chipped in across the board with 4+5=9, plus-3, 6 PIMs, 4 PPP & 17 shots in four games last week.


Rookie Star of the WeekMikael Backlund, Cgy - slow week for rookies but Backlund impressed with 2+1=3, plus-3 & 12 shots.

Breakout Star of the WeekVictor Hedman, TB - five assists in four games last week as he seems to be embracing Guy Boucher's attacking style.

Breakdown of the WeekNicklas Backstrom, Wsh - this could easily have been Ovechkin (he was pointless) but he had 19 shots last week so we'll go with his struggling linemate, who was pointless, a minus-4 with eight shots last week.

Free Agent Star of the Week (less than 50% owned in Yahoo!):  Milan Hejduk, Col - 26% owned right now but had 3+3=6 with 5 PPP & 17 shots last week... I could have used that on all of my team's last week (I grabbed him in one league for this week).
