    Default [Cage Match Tournament] #4 Conacher vs. #5 Gallagher

    UH OH! It's the second week of the Cage Match Rookie Tournament!

    If you missed Week One, don't fret you can still vote here. Hopefully you know the drill with these but just in case let's brake it down. Each week there will be four matchups for you to choose a winner. The winner moves on to the next round. The last player standing is the top rookie.

    The criteria for you to vote on are simple:

    - No goalies

    - No defensemen

    - No positions

    - Points only keeper league with one caveat - Don't be a perpetually rebuilding knucklehead. No one has ever won a fantasy league with just potential so value this season ABSOLUTELY matters.

    Vote your hearts out!

    #1 Huberdeau vs. #8 Foligno
    #2 Tarasenko vs. #7 Kreider
    #3 Brunner vs. #6 Silfverberg

    I voted Gallagher. I can see him and Galchenyuk pairing up and playing together for a long long time. Gallagher is going to ride Galchenyuks coat tails and put up some solid numbers for quite a while.

    I've got to take Conacher here just because of what he showed us in his hot start. Plus, who better to mentor him than Marty St Louis

    Is Gallagher the latest guy to succumb to the Cage Match curse? Seems like every tournament at least one guy gets hurt right before his matchup. Look at what happened to Rask in the goalie tournament. Not saying Gallagher's C-word necessarily changes the outcome here but it could.

    This is my exact line of thinking as well. Especially the last sentence.

    I should add that I'm also not saying that Price didn't deserve to win that one anyhow.

    I know, it's just funny to see how it played out after all the outrage.

    Even without the injury to Gallagher I like Conacher here. Gallagher could end up being a nice player but he just doesn't have near the opportunity that CC will be getting this year and the near future.

    Conacher.

    Tough call w/the wee folk, as potential for injuries seems to preoccupy us fantasy GMs. So outta the gate Conacher has demonstrated a great ability to produce, has yet to be injured, and has St. Louis (a/k/a King of the Wee Folk) as a mentor.
