Just because five players do it and collect high GP, Wins, and SOs doesn't mean that it is the new standard.
And I do think those guys should be rewarded for being workhorses (not that they are workhorses and nothing more - well, Kipper and Ward are of late but at least Kipper used to be great for his short peak). I don't think it's a surprise to anyone that Lundqvist is going to be my #1 this round. I actually was one of the few ones to have Kipper on my list last time - in 7th I think, so if I don't change things, Kipper would be in my top 4. But I really saw last round as basically a top 6, then the field, so it's possible I could bump Kipper for someone from the field (even for someone like Thomas).
