THE WEEK IN BULLETS

  • Big trades this week: (what got into Orv & R&S?)
  • DERKO sent Denis Gurianov DL and Julian Gauthier CR to R&S for T’s 3rd rounder ’17
  • R&S then packaged Gauthier & the pick up & sent it to Orv for Charlie McAvoy BO
  • TMAN sent boring Sean Monahan CY to Orv for Mika Zibanejad NYR
  • CORDY sent Thomas Chabot OT to Orv for Matt Duchene CO
  • R&S traded Thomas Vanek DT to EZ for David Backes BO & EZ’s 2017 5th
  • 3-0 weeks for Rolphy, Cordy, T-Man & Stifler.
  • Not only did he get his first 3-0 week, but Stifler had contributions from every player on his roster. The 5-Year Plan is starting to show dividends.
  • GoJo had the 4th best week with 36 pts, but went 1-2
  • Vinny had the 4th worst with 26, yet went 2-0-1
  • T-Man jumped up one spot to 9th
  • Stifler jumped up one spot to 12th
  • The pick-up is a lottery again ….. and again it’s a “1” meaning its R& S’s….again
  • HUGE week for Rolphy as he hits 51 points. (and he did it with his “ass in the sand.”)

Rolphy is showing to be the “Cream of the Crop” lately … whenever I hear that phrase I can’t help but think of the Macho Man

“Hey, I going to use a creamer in my next interview. Pretty cool idea, right?”

PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Rolphy had two players with 7 pts, and 2 with 8 points to pace him to his 51 points, and it could go to Backstrom WS who had 10 for Cordy….

7x World Champ, 4x Olympic Gold Medallist….and so much more. Thanks Hayley. 

HOCKEY CARD(s) OF THE WEEK

This from the 1985-86 season. Sportsnet’s goaltending expert posted a solid .843 save % with the Canucks.

So, there was precedent for Garth Snow becoming GM. .843
