The Goods on Fantasy Hockey
Entries with the tag: busts
Last and definitely least in our lists of First-Team All Stars, we have our All-Bust team. For some of these players, the writing was certainly on the wall for either a drop in production or an almost certain inability to hold a preseason ranking. However, all of these players disappointed fantasy teams in a significant way this season. The silver lining is perhaps these players could be in for a bounce-back next season, certainly at lower prices than before. Just don’t overpay on draft day next season.
As the custom has been, I’ll list my busts first. Then Chris Wassel from The Program will provide his list of fantasy hockey’s top underachievers this season.
The players that I’ve listed as busts aren’t necessarily players you shouldn’t draft (okay, but some of them are). These players are mainly the type that are on the downside of their career, or are players that won’t perform at the level at which they are likely to be drafted this season. Injuries are a risk that any NHL player faces, but fantasy hockey veterans will know by now that some players seem to spend more time on IR than on active rosters (sadly, I forgot to include Rick DiPietro on my list). Whatever the reason, these are players that you should exercise caution before drafting this season.
