  4. Who needs Roman Sokolov when you've got five of the top 15 skaters and the top goalie? While Sokolov was again the best player, during the second quarter of play, the 2nd-4th best skaters were all on my team (Unassisted, Aleksei Federov, and Bobby Digital). My worst player is Fook Yu, whose 102.6 fantasy points ranks him at 15th among skaters. But keep in mind that there are also multiple players above him who nobody has on their teams. Of the 25 skaters that my Group 4 opponents have, only six players have more fantasy points than Yu. Three of those players are on @DollarAndADream's second place team. Bo Boeser continues to be a surprise, and the rest of his players are holding up nicely with the exception of Tobias Klingberg, a blemish on this roster that makes me feel comfortable in my lead. Despite having the second worst Q2 in the group, @punkhippie does currently hold on to his third place spot. Roman Sokolov is carrying him hard, as he has three players under 80 and the worst goalie in the group. Axelberry did improve this quarter, though. John Locke had a worse performance and is currently the worst player on the team after a decent Q1. Having the third best Q2, @der meister moves up a spot from 5th place to 4th. A strong performance from his own Essian Ravenwing helped boost his team. Ravenwing being his worst player at 82.4 fantasy points is not a bad mark (every team but mine has at least one worse player), though his best player (Guntis Petenis) has only 104.4 fantasy points (every team in the group has at least one better player). @Higgins swapped spots in the standings with der meister because his team sucks. @canucks30 is still 6th and I've written enough words.
  5. I think it's safe to say Roman Sokolov has solidified himself as the fantasy darling this season. He once again led in fantasy points this quarter, though with a slightly worse total than the last. Though his lead over the second best was not as great, only one other player from the top five in Q1 was once again in the top five, that being Aleksei Federov (2nd in Q1; 3rd in Q2; 2nd overall). Unassisted made a strong jump in the recent games, scoring 72.8 fantasy points this quarter. This was a good improvement on his already respectable 58.2 from before. New York players across the board saw better performances, thanks in part to an easier schedule. The largest improvement came from Essian Ravenwing, who had just 27.2 fantasy points last quarter (placing him 55th of 72 skaters), as he doubled his fantasy production with 55.2 fantasy points this quarter (13th). For the goalies, Astrid Moon cooled down as his shutout pace did not continue. He was 6th among goalies for the quarter, but he does remain the top goalie for the season overall. It was Calgary's Jacob who led the goalies this quarter, but the scores were much closer as less than two fantasy points separated the top four. for mist4ke

  8. It was a rhetorical question suggesting to him that it would be better to make a conference opponent have a worse pick.
  9. The Dynamo are looking to rejoin the upper echelon of teams in the VHL, but their early season struggled against the reigning champions showed that they aren't quite there yet. Since losing ten of their first 12 games (including a 1-6-1 record vs Helsinki), the Dynamo have been playing better, but they have still lost games that they feel like they should be winning (Cologne, Toronto). Most recently, however, they have been on a win streak of seven games, bringing their season record up to 15-15-1. During the stretch, they have beaten Calgary twice and Quebec once. The wins against Riga and Toronto are not quite as impressive, but if they want to be considered a top team, then they do need to show that they can consistently perform well against the weaker teams. With several upcoming games against the Reign and the Bears, the Dynamo could extend this streak to double digits before they get back to playing against contending teams. Hopefully they can build momentum off of these easy games and carry that over into the tougher games. for Maxwell
  10. The Americans lack of depth proved to be a problem last season, and this season hasn't been a whole lot better. For much of the season, they've been in a close battle with the Wranglers for second place in North America despite the expectations that New York would still be in contention for a Cup. While I believe this is more a factor of the Wranglers easier schedule thus far, New York's early struggle to keep up with Quebec was not a good sign, regardless of where they are relative to Calgary. They haven't been awful, but they have been a bit inconsistent, losing games to teams that you wouldn't expect them to lose while still being capable of beating top tier teams. Recently, they've gone through an easy stretch of games, and they've managed to create an eight-game winning streak. Prior to this streak, the longest of the season was just four wins. They have played a combined seven games during this stretch against Seattle, Cologne, and Toronto, so to see them winning these games is not a surprise. They did also have a win over Stockholm during this streak, which is good to see from them. After one more game with the Express, the Americans will be tested with back to back games vs the Meute, followed by another match with the Vikings. for mist4ke
  11. Meute win three in a row vs Titans, claim first place The Helsinki Titans bursted out of the gates this season, losing just two games in their first 25. With Franchise Cornerstone having a breakout year and Astrid Moon looking unbeatable, the reigning champions were proving that they were still the best team in the league. A recent slump, however, has dropped them into second place in the overall standings. While they have succeeded against other playoff hopefuls in Davos and New York, their recent string of games against Quebec has given them trouble. The Titans have played the Meute in four of their last five games; after winning the first of these four, the rest have ended in defeat. Helsinki got off to a fast start in the first game in the season series with Quebec. They scored three goals within the first two minutes, and despite the Meute responding with two later in the period, that was enough to get the win. Cornerstone did add an insurance goal later on, giving him two goals and an assist in the game. The Titans were continuing their dominating ways, but the next few games would show their mortality. Astrid Moon has been a top goalie since his notoriously bad S53 playoff performance. The first of the their losses was a case of former MVP Apollo Skye playing his heart out. The Titans did score the first goal of the game on a power play, but Skye made 47 saves in the game to keep Helsinki at just the one. AK47 and Pierre Gaudette scored goals for the Meute, giving them just enough to take the game. The next game between the two started out similarly, with Helsinki getting on the board first with Black Velvet scoring quickly in the first period. The Meute seemed to figure out Astrid Moon in this game. John Locke in particular was playing well, scoring his second hat trick of the season. Gaudette assisted on all four of Quebec's goals, while Skye held the Titans to just two. In the third game, the depth of the Meute roster really showed. Goals were scored by Titan Kronos, Fook Yu, and Lukas Muller with six different players each getting one assist. Velvet scored the lone goal for Helsinki. The Titans will have to wait a bit before they get a chance at revenge. It should be a welcome reprieve for them and a good chance to climb back to first. With a relatively easy schedule on the horizon for Helsinki, it's possible that they don't lose another game before they see the Meute again, though that would require a couple wins against Stockholm. Quebec's lead in the standings is not even really a strict lead, as they have played two more games they Helsinki and are just a point ahead of them. Overall, though, things have been getting closer at the top of the standings all around. The Vikings have gained some ground on the Titans thanks to the recent losses, while the Americans have had an easy stretch allowing them to come within six points of the Meute. Hopefully things continue to be close, giving us a good Victory Cup and playoff races.
