The Montreal Maroons are tops in week 6!

The Montreal Maroons had a very strong week finishing with 88 points. They were lead by James Van Riemsdyk (4 goals), Phil Kessel (3 goals) and David Pasternak with 2 goals. They had decent performance the rest of the way down the lineup to give them just enough to grab the top spot. Just behind the Maroons were the Ottawa Titans with 85 points. The Titans were led by young Pavel Buchnevich with 17 points, he got some help from Evander Kane and Vladimir Tarasenko who added 10 points each. Rounding out the top three were the Quebec Gateways who tied for 85 points. They relied heavily on a strong weekly showing by the Minnesota Wild with Jason Zucker scoring six goals for the week and goaltender Devan Dubnyk going 2-1-0 with both wins being shutouts.

In the overall standings The Durham Huskies who were number one a couple of weeks ago continued to slide down the standings with the Flin Flon Musketeers taking the top spot (487 pts). 30 points back in second place are the Quebec Gateways and nipping at their heels (no pun intended) are the Huskies with 452 points.

Transactions started to heat up this week as some players have returned to their junior clubs and players are starting to establish the direction of their point possibilities for the season. Lots of clear winners and losers here which certainly can make you scratch your head when looking at pre-season rankings. That's why this is so much fun....


Best of luck in your games this week!



A Word from the Commish

As there are openings if you know anyone, send them my way. Looking at the computer rosters there may be strong competition from the nu-managed teams again this season. Of course the hope is that they will get snatched up in the coming weeks.
