Even though the majority of experts picked Nashville to defeat Detroit, the Red Wings were easily the sexier team when it came to playoff pools. On paper, the Predators don’t possess the equivalent of the likes of Pavel Datsyuk, Henrik Zetterberg, or even Johan Franzen. In addition, it’s difficult to pass up on Nicklas Lidstrom in any playoff pool, for all that he has accomplished in his career. But will be strange not seeing the Red Wings in their usual spot in the second round of the playoffs.
If you play in fantasy hockey head-to-head leagues, you probably already know that a top-notch win-loss record doesn’t always promise the number one finish in the league.
All it takes is for one poor fantasy playoff week – an injury or two, or substandard play from otherwise solid performers – to end the season without the first-place trophy you were actively seeking all season. So with luck being an increased factor in the fantasy hockey playoffs, why bother checking your team at all during the regular season?
