The Program’s Fantasy All Stars

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.

Remember when Marc-Andre Fleury went 1-6 to start last season and Penguins fans wondered if Brent Johnson should be the starter? Having said that, there are a few early-season goaltending waiver-wire opportunities, along with some big names that you should keep an eye on, just in case.

Pick Six: Wednesday October 12/Thursday October 13

In case you’ve noticed, I’ll admit that I have not had a great record to start. But that will be the case for many committed fantasy owners, whether they read my blog or not.

This seems to be the time of year where fantasy owners are at their most impulsive: assuming that what will happen over two or three games will reflect an entire season.
