SF Dragons win on a shortened All Star Week!

As we reach the midway point of the season the Quebec Gateways seem to have a firm grip on first place overall. Oddly enough, they are being led by defensemen Mark Giordano of the Calgary Flames. Through 49 games he has 154 points and has already almost match the number of points he had through 82 games in the 2015-16 season. The Flames have been somewhat of a surprise this season on several fronts and luckily for the Gateways, they have Elias Lindholm as well. Lindholm a trade from Carolina has also surpassed his best seasons points only halfway through. Other notables for the Gateways are Timo Meier (116 pts), Roman Josi (114 pts) and Phil Kessel (112 pts).

43 points behind the Gateways are the Flin Flon Musketeers. The Musketeers have been riding the scorching hot Mikko Rantanen of the Avalanche. He continues to impress night after night and is easy on the pocket book at least for now. With him being an RFA for next season he will likely garner a much larger paycheck for next season. The Musketeers also have Brayden Point and the situation is almost identical to Rantanen, in that his points have been solid for three seasons and this is a contract year for him so he will be getting the big payday as well next year. Others with solid point contributions, but more significant contracts are Mark Scheifele (132 pts), Kris Letang (124 pts) and Brendan Gallagher (100 pts).

100 points back are the San Francisco Dragons, who are leading the charge for the Western Conference. The Dragons are led by one of their many Washington Capital players Alex Ovechkin. The Caps are really hoping that this is there year to win the cup and if so the Dragons will be well positioned for a deep playoff run. Ovechkin is eclipsing all the other scorers on this team with 151 points. Coming in a distant second is fellow Capital John Carlson with 118 points. Other notable cap crusher Jonathan Toews (10.5 Mil) has 104 points which equates to a little over $100K per point…ouch! Other less expensive contributors Jonathan Marchessault (102 pts), Mattias Ekholm (101 pts) and Alex Touch (96 pts).

Currently the two teams fighting for the first overall pick in the next seasons draft are the New Orleans Misfits and the Edmonton Demons.


It’s All Star weekend time to relax and enjoy some of the festivities!


Best of luck in your games this week and your quest for the SSFHL Cup!



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.

If you notice anything not working on the site or not looking update for this season please let me know. There are some 1200 pages and I have been known to miss things on occasions.

As always, we are looking for ways to make the site more user friendly for you, so if there is something you would like to see, don't hesitate to and let us know!"
