Battle of California Fantasy Report: Week 3

New, 48 comments

Premier Match-up

Anzeholics Anonymous vs. BROWS

Anzeholics Anonymous wins 12 - 1!

MVP: A strong week from Giguere locked up all the goalie categories for the Anzeholics. 

LVP: BROWS' best goalie is Ryan Miller, who had a poor week. This wouldn't be so bad if his other goalie wasn't Craig Anderson. Uh oh.

Another team bites the dust, and the Anzeholics keep on rolling.

 

Wiki-Sharks vs. MEEEEEEEAAAAT

Wiki-Sharks win 9 - 3!

MVP: Jonathan Quick - stir up some fun and some great goaltending.

LVP: Rudy is his own worst enemy once again, making my week much easier. Playing against Rudy's team is like playing against this season's Anaheim Ducks.

Does anyone remember before the season started some Kings fans were talking about how Quick would probably lose the starting job to Bernier? Kings fans are dumb.

 

Sleek and Destroy vs. 2 Live Drew

Sleek wins 7 - 6!

MVP: Earl's goalies helped him win this close one, so credit goes out to Turco and Neuvirth.

LVP: Kiprusoff had a GAA of 5.08 this week. That's not good.

2 Live Drew got 24 penalty minutes from a guy named "Zenon" this week. This supports my theory that guys named after noble gases are tough bastards.

Teal Blades vs. Quid Pro Clowe

Teal Blades wins 8 - 3!

MVP: Angy's faith in the Sharks pays off, as both Joe Thornton and Antero Niittymaki had outstanding weeks.

LVP: Martin St. Louis was completely shut out this week, with not even a single shot on goal.

How good was the goaltending this week for the Teal Blades? Quid Pro Clowe had a 1.63 GAA and a .940 save percentage and LOST both of those categories.

 

Kitten Mittens vs. Steoguchi's Revenge

Steoguchi's Revenge wins 8 - 7!

MVP: Tim Thomas was not just a goalie this week, he was the living embodiment of the Goalie Force, the source of pure goaltending skill that exists in parallel with our universe. Tuukka Rask is never going to play again, and he might as well go back where he came from (a cave during prehistoric times, I assume).

LVP: Ilya Kovalchuk. That is all.

The Kitten Mittens had five goalies on their roster this week, and only one of them had a game that was at all good.

 

IAmJoe(Pavelski) vs. Intaglio

Intaglio wins 10 - 3!

MVP:  Danny Briere had one goal, two assists, and 27 penalty minutes this week.

LVP: IAmJoe had five separate players on his team who scored no points and were a minus one.

IAmJoe also only had one goalie game played this week, and it was a bad one.

 

Fournick Gators vs. spades lil bandito's

spade wins 7 - 6!

MVP: Paul Stastny is always good for some points and wins faceoffs like a faceoff-winning machine.

LVP: Dan Carcillo put up a neat and orderly "0" in each of the nine scoring categories.

There was a time, not long ago, when having Brodeur and Fleury as your goalies would be awesome. That time is not our time.

 

McSorley's Stick vs. Slappyville Freezers

Freezers win 11 - 2!

MVP: Both Nicklas Backstrom and Niklas Backstrom had great weeks. 

LVP: Yikes. Blake Comeau I guess was the worst, but the lousy play was pretty evenly distributed. 

No ties this week! Good job everybody.
