Ugh. My foray into the world of fantasy hockey continues to make me look like I know absolutely nothing about hockey. I'm sure some will tell you I don't!
I'm in the CBC weekly fantasy pool, languishing around 20,000th spot! With the cap component I've decided it really comes down to luck. You have to guess who will be the streaky hot players each week. That is the only way you will gain significant ground.
For example - on Saturday night I picked up 18 fantasy points in 15 NHL games. On Sunday night I picked up 16 more fantasy points in just 3 NHL games. Luck.
One of the streakiest players I remember from my youth was Petri Skriko. One week in November, 1986 Skriko had three hat tricks - including one four goal game - in five games.
I could sure use some advice who will be Petri Skriko next week.
