    Default [Cage Match Tournament] #1 Yakupov vs. #4 Grigorenko

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

    If you missed the opening round do not fret because you can still help choose the champion. 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. I cannot stress this enough.

    Vote your hearts out!

    #2 Mikael Granlund vs. #3 Alex Galchenyuk
    #1 Jonathan Huberdeau vs. #4 Cory Conacher
    #2 Vladimir Tarasenko vs. #6 Jakob Silfverberg

    Doh! Why do the rookies on my squad keep getting matched up against superior competition?!? I really like Grigorenko long term, but Yakupov outdoes him and has the MUCH better supporting offensive cast around him to speed up and hopefully maintain the output.
