    Default [Cage Match Tournament] #2 Tarasenko vs. #7 Kreider

    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
    #3 Brunner vs. #6 Silfverberg
    #4 Conacher vs. #5 Gallagher

    I took Tarasenko. Kreider looked great last season in the playoffs but really has struggles out of the gate this year. Tarasenko flew out of the gate this year and has slowed down but I still say long term he's the better fantasy option.

    kevinsrangers and maybe the other odd Rags fans should be the only ones to pick Kreider here. I wasn't sold on him after last years playoffs and was glad to see other teams waste their draft picks on him in my leagues this year. He's a decent player, but the hype was way too high for the kid.

    Speaking of hype... Haaaaaaaaavvvvvveeee you met Vlad?

    Tarasenko by a good margin. Although a possible concussion is not a good thing seeing as he already suffered one in the KHL earlier this season.

    Why? Because he's Blake Wheeler 2.0? See you guys in five years when Kreider finally becomes relevant.

    What does that have to do with Point-value in a keeper?
