The Goods on Fantasy Hockey

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.
I continue my list of all-star teams with the top sleepers by position this season. It’s fair to say that all except one player on this list were not expected to be sleepers this season. But that’s part of the fun of fantasy hockey – if you look past the name of the player and what numbers he is supposed to post, you’ll find a surprising player that turns out to be an incredible fantasy asset.
First I will list my All-Sleeper Team, then Chris Wassel of The Program will list his.
As promised earlier, here is Chris Wassel’s list of fantasy all stars. He has also included some top rookies, “vintage wines”, and a second all-star team in addition to the first all-star team.
You can find Chris’ work on both fantasy hockey and general interest hockey on his site, The Program.
Six months ago, fantasy hockey players started on a journey that would be filled with many highs and lows. There have been a lot of injuries and some very significant ones at that. We saw Sidney Crosby go down a couple times this year and miss quite a big chunk of time. Then there was the likely career ending concussion to Chris Pronger. It has been a tough year to gauge the top rookies, breakout players, and primetime warriors.
Those are the three categories we are using for this season ender known as the “Best Of The Best”. The reason we went with a bit of chronological youngest to oldest was simply because we could. For each category, we take our three best players and then add in a few honorable mentions. Yes that may stir up some more debate but remember this is from a fantasy hockey point of view.
