Late last week, the Canucks was visiting the St.Louis Blues as Ryan Miller back stopped to a 4-1 victory. During that game Kassian had a few words for Steve Ott, NHL named this video “Kassian jumps into the wrong bench.” The video is named incorrectly and Kassian did not jump into the bench, merely hops off the ice to avoid a too many men penalty.
Week 2 is complete. It is only the second week of fantasy hockey, and already a huge list of injuries already affected quite a few teams. Aside from the Voynov incident, a few notable players that have been placed on the injured reserved Zdeno Chara, Nick Foligno, Andrew MacDonald, Paul Statsny, Alex Killorn, and entire power play unit of Tampa Bay Lightning.
Week 2 Rankings and Ratings! The current league standings is already intriguing enough for its own post. With the newly created divisions this year, we can already kind of see a more dominant “Western Conference” aura from the Southern Fried Chicken division. With 29 point difference between the top seeded Dream Killa and the basement dweller 12th Place. While the Northern Stuffed Bisons represents the extremely evenly matched (or weaker) competition with only 8 points separating EVIL EMPIRE and BEAST.

In Week 2, Vancouver Grizzlies took a plunge into the vast Pacific Ocean and dropped a whopping 7 spots into lowly 13th. Tort’s ULTRA Rage unleashed John Tortorella’s fury on the non existent Vancouver Grizzlies with a marginal beat down. The Grizzlies with two key injuries in Victor Hedman (4 weeks) and Johan Franzen (DTD) could have easily soften the blow if a few key players were played between Friday and Saturday.
While the Grizzlies went north for a swim, Never Go Full Retard (NGFR) leaped into 7th place with a 8-3-2 victory against 12th Place. The tandem of Quick, and Lundqvist was solid with 3 Wins, and 1 shutout. NGFR also had the largest increase in Ratings via fantasysp this week with +18.79. Chris Higgins, James Neal, and Dougie Hamilton led the way in Week 2 combined for 12 points.
The largest drop in ratings this week was team Nutfoot with Corey Crawford Day-to-Day, the goalie option looks bleak as Khudobin and Lack are not solid choices either. The waiver wire is thinning as Jake Allen, Antti Ranta, and Karri Ramo are all goalies looking for more playing time. The defence core of Brian Campbell, Aaron Ekblad and Jake Gardiner are not making quite the presence as expected causing a drop in rating of -6.44.
