Studs & Duds - Thursday 3/7
This guy is absolutely the real deal. After a slow start, he is lighting the league on fire. Another 2 goals and 7 shots last night. Heís making the absolute best of his opportunity in Philly. Although, I would expect a regression as I donít see this pace as sustainable.
A solid player in a fantastic situation is fantasy gold! When your most common linemate is #87 and you are often on a PP unit with guys named Malkin and Neal, expect good things. 2 goals and 3 points from Kunitz last night in whatís becoming a career best season.
A great night from (great?) 8 last night. OV seems to be righting the ship. I canít help buy make the comparison to Kovalchuk and his struggles from a few years ago. Ovechkin might come out of this a better player like Kovy did.
Quick is not having the same success he had in LA last year. Another rough outing last night with 4 goals on 21 shots. With games like that, itís tough for the Kings to stay in games. Luckily for them, their offense hasnít been as anemic this season.
Wow, talk about a regression. No points last night compounds his rough season. Heís still putting up decent points but heís only scored in 5 of his 23 games. Compounded with a 8.3% shooting percentage, heís got to be better than this. Likely, heís somewhere in between this yearís Eberle and last seasons.
I called out Buff a few weeks back, and he responded with a solid game. After another lackluster offensive night, I have to name him a dud again. In his 12 games since injury, he only has 3 points. Itís time for him to turn the corner and get back to his producing ways.
