NHL Fantasy 3 Stars: Week 4
Total Pro Sports – Week 4 saw two players regain their form and one who doesn’t even have one but can still keep the pucks out of the net. Even though he didn’t make the list, honourable mention has to go out to Corey Perry who put up 9 points last week (2 goals & 7 assists). He sure helped out my fantasy team last week.
Lets take a look at the NHL Fantasy 3 Stars for Week 4.
3rd Star – Teemu Selanne, Anaheim Ducks
The Finnish Flash was anything put invisible last week, especially on the power play. Selanne put up 9 points (6 goals & 3 assists), 7 of which came on the power play. Despite his age Teemu is still putting up the points and is looking to have another 80+ point season. If you’re in a keeper league and have one too many young keepers, Teemu would be worth while giving up some youth for.
2nd Star – Ryan Getzlaf, Anaheim Ducks
To steal a phrase from The Rock, “Finally! Ryan Getzlaf has come back to Anaheim!” Frustrated Getzlaf fantasy owners were waiting patiently and wondering when Ryan would finally break out. Well that break out happened last week putting up 10 points (2 goals & 8 assists). As young players are prone to doing, Getzlaf might get on another cold streak. If he does that’s when you will want to jump in and try to make a trade for him while his value is down.
1st Star – Tim Thomas, Boston Bruins
While I personally dislike Thomas and his style, you can’t argue with the numbers and results. Thomas won 3 games while posting a 0.99 GAA and a .970 SV% while recording back-to-back shutouts over the Oilers and Canucks. You might want to consider trading Thomas while his value is high since Manny Fernandez is right behind Tim and Boston wont hesitate to bring him in if Thomas has a bad game or two.
Remember to check back in next week to see who the NHL Fantasy 3 Stars will be for Week 5.
