How's everyone's fantasy season so far?

The lockout has me off to a weird start. Getting crushed by two consensus inferior teams - pretty frustrating to watch. I know we're just getting started, but anyone else struggling out of the gate or not having players live up to expectations so far? I wonder if the lack of training camp has hurt some of the high-profile players.

Conversely, anyone doing better than expected?

Killing it so far- but I feel like I might be striking gold early on, and not be able to maintain... Tarasenko, Buff and Enstrom big so far, Campbell, P Kane, Selanne , have all been good. We will see who starts slowing down soon.

Im struggling as well. Definetly in the goalie postion.

My goalies
R.Luongo
J.Reimer
M.Smith
M.Fleury

My problem is Pittsburg picked up Vokoun and he will be splitting time with Fluery, Scrivens has been starting for the leafs for some reason leaving Reimer useless currently, Smith has just flat out sucked this season, and we all know about Luongo. I was hoping he would have been traded by now. We did the draft before the lockout was even announced.

Any ideas on what to do? This is also my first year doing Fantasy hockey.

Not as bad as expected so far. still losing but it's close.


My biggest issue is going to be coming later. I have an old team, in the 3rd year of a keeper (keep 12)And can't get younger

always slow start for me. in a 13 team 20 man roster (260 active players + bench,IR,rookies), i have big F and D goal scorers in kessel, kovalchuk, gaborik, Dsedin, weber, big buff, letang with plenty of solid secondary scoring. also average to above average goaltending that should eventually even out. im sure my guys will get going eventually. at the end of the year, these are likely the type of guys youll see at the top of the cats, so got to play it coy for now.

never know in a short season though... no chance for a 2nd half tear...

My forwards are doing great for me, enough to hold me 1st place in a 10 team league.

Defense and goaltending, not so much.

My guys are putting up lots of assists and powerplay points and such, but not much goal scoring. This could be a consistent issue all year, as most of my guys are playmakers. I really need Bobby Ryan and Phil Kessel to put up 25+ goals.

I was also worried about my goaltending but Lehtonen and Anderson have been great so far. I have Schneider as well, and we all know that he had a rough start though.

Goaltending sucks with Smith so far. Did he not play during the lockout?? He is killing my week.

Off to a fairly slow start and losing my H2H match-up. Lundqvist sucked the first two games and my opponent killed it with Brodeur. The rest is pretty close aside from the goalies...

I've got Lundqvist and Hiller and I'm getting trashed in the goalie department lol. Scoring a good amount though. Also got random back-to-back 25+ PIM days. Now lead my opponent something like 67-18 or something stupid like that haha.

In one of my leagues, I'm beating the other guy 8-3. My goalies (Lehtonen and Anderson) have been lights out.

In my other one, I was losing the whole week, but came back to tie the score!

Currently in first! My forwards and D have been amazing, but my goalies other than Rask leave something to be desired.

Stuck on a battle of 10th, 9th and 8th place. I was brought up from 18th to 8th with the help of Gabby's hatty a couple of nights ago. Yesterday I was on all 3 positions at one point. Now I'm 10th.

My biggest problem is my goalies. I have Schnider and Scrivens :\
