Glad to be back, writing up the players of the week. Hope all you owners out there stick around all season. I know we've had some turnover so remember players, hard to have a league without owners. Give this guys a break. Week one I keep it simple, not really dive into match ups, because it can be a roll of the dice in that first week. Hope you all enjoyed this week’s installment of the Players of the Week.
Statistically across the board AAAAAAAAAGAABBA was at the top or in the top ten in every category I use. He was a plus 13, put up 1.43 ppg and had two goals which was tied for first for defense-man. He also took zero penalties, and threw in a game winning goal while he was at it. There wasn’t a shortage of great performances, dparans with 10 points, LaFluer11 putting up 11 points and 1.83 ppg, also bombermanuxo with 10 points and finally Smiirk-_- rounding out that top five with 10 or more points. It’s a list of names you are going to see vying for that player of the week spot on defense all year.
Week one for forwards is always a pain picking one guy. It was no different this time around, and at the end of the day I went with Akonvict21. He had a solid statically week, there is a reason why he is the back to back Selke winner. Put up 23 points, with a plus 21. Only took 2 pims, had 2 power play goals and 2 game winning goals. Love the 57 hits, which amounts to 8 per game, and went 55.5% in the face-off dot. Similar to the defensive write up, there were plenty to choose from at the forward spot. Malkin_71, with 12 goals and 14 assists, DeAdLy_xDaNgLeS and his 15 goals, or xTarasenko91_ with 11 goals and 11 assists rocking zero PIMs (proud of ya buddy ;-)) Gotta give a shout out to MTL-Cor with his league leading 16 assists. Lot of great performances this week, looking forward to what each of you will bring week to week.
Snipeshotty had a fantastic week. Tied for first in wins, second in save percentage, second in shots against, and third in goals against average. No one else was even close. While there were some great performances, you have to give Snipe a ton of credit. Seems Calgary is continuing their run of solid goal-tending. They are going to be dangerous again this year with this guy in net. No shortage of honorable mentions with TheDoooooogstar and his .893 save percentage, Titprout at .874 and carbor123 giving up 1.48 goals against.
