Every Monday we will reveal our fantasy players for the past week, as well as our players to watch in the upcoming week for various types of pools
|Sid's stache lives another day|
Sidney Crosby probably went 2nd overall in a lot of drafts this year. Maybe he knew that, because he's tearing the NHL up every week. He now has 30 goals, and 24 points in his last 13 games. Sid's buddy Geno Malkin had a solid week posting similar point totals, however did not come close to registering nearly as many shots as Crosby's 25. Pittsburgh continues to dominate the stats under the HBO spotlight as Kris Letang was the top fantasy defenceman this week. Of note is his 18 shots this week, I guess he's been working with Crosby on that clapper. Tobias Enstrom also had a good week with 5 pts, as well as Brian Rafalski who posted 5 assists. In net, Dwayne Roloson was dominant this week going 3-0 with solid numbers. If you have him on your team, and were drunk enough to start him this week, I salute you.
Who to Look Out For This Week
In the West I am going to take Brad Richards. He has 40 pts in 36 games and the Stars have 4 games this week against NSH, DET, VAN and STL. In the EAST there are not many big studs with 4 games. So I am going to stick with Sid the Kid. The Pens have 3 games against ATL, NYR and the Winter Classic game on New Years day against the Capitals.
