The biggest and brightest from the past week in Fantasy Land...
Three Stars of the Week:
3rd Star, from the Anaheim Ducks, numero 1, Jonas Hiller... three wins last week (stopping 105 of 109) and he's been carrying his team lately (5th place in the West).
2nd Star, from the Phoenix Coyotes, numero 19, Shane Doan... huge week from Doan with 5+3=8 & 23 shots.
1st Star, from the Detroit Red Wings, numero 5, Nicklas Lidstrom... c'mon, a dman puts up 2+6=8 with six PPPs... automatic 1st Star.
Rookie Star of the Week: Cedrick Desjardins, TB - two wins and only two goals allowed last week and what does that get him... a ticket back to Norfolk.
Breakout Star of the Week: Semyon Varlamov, Wsh - still only seven wins on the season but he won twice last week and that's three in a row for the Caps so maybe a breakout is coming in the 2nd half.
Breakdown of the Week: Patrick Kane, Chi - he's on pace for a big drop in points this year (65 after 88 last year) and last week didn't help as he had only 1A & a minus-5 over three games.
Free Agent Star of the Week (less than 50% owned in Yahoo!): Jason Pominville, Buf (32% owned) - the four point game was enough but he had points in all three games last week for 2+4=6 in total. Honourable mention to Pommer's teammate, Mike Weber (2% owned), as he was 2+3=5 & plus-6 last week and those were his first points of the season.
