I somehow managed to finish 1st place and got a first round bye. But my team has been struggling for the past month offensively and I finished 3rd in the regular season in points, and there are major concerns with some players.
This just sucks because I recently dropped Neal and Marchand due to concussions and also dropped Clarkson who has been cold for over a month.
Malkin - injured off and on
Toews - consistently been my best player
Franzen - producing as of late, hope he keeps it up
Vanek - injured off and on and has been mediocre since returning
Simmonds - production has been down lately but I need him for PIMs
Sharp - just returned from a shoulder injury, I hope he turns it up
Jussi Jokinen - been on a roll lately
Giroux - decent at best
Bobby Ryan - disappointing
Mike Richards - same as Jokinen, should stay hot down the stretch
Clowe - surprisingly has been good with the Rangers, need him for PIMs
Yandle - inconsistent
Keith - decent
Gonchar - cold lately
Doughty - much better lately
Bobrovsky - vezina candidate
Schneider - he's been on a roll
Rask - same as Bobs
Nabokov - I snagged him yesterday.
At this point I think I may need to replace Vanek, Simmonds, Ryan. My goaltending is solid and I'm going to roll with them.
