Tight race has the KC Bruins take week 6!

The Bruins narrowly grabbed the win this week with 79 points, partly due to points being registered by all starting players for the week. There were clearly some stronger players Johnny Gaudreau poured in 3 goals and 1 assist, Jaden Schwartz 1 and 1, with Patrice Bergeron scoring 2 goals and picking up 2 assists as well. Just being the Bruins were the Gatineau Gorillas with 77 points. The Gorillas had strong point production from most of their line with a couple of notable standouts. Newly acquired Patrick Marleau potted three goals for the week for a total of 14 points. A couple of other contributors from the Rangers Kevin Shattenkirk (10 points) and Ryan McDonagh rounded out their biggest scorers. Taking the third spot with 76 points are the Idaho Steelheads. The Steelheads benefitted from the strong play of Winnipeg this week with Mark Schifele picking up where he left off last season netting 3 goals and adding three assists. other contributors were David Pasternak (2 G, 2 A) and Rickard Rakell (1 G, 4 A).

The top three overall teams have only 3 points separating them Barrie Colts (456) Kalamazoo Ravens (455) and the Brandon Bisons (454) so clearly there is some strong competition within the league.

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 un-managed teams again this season. Of course the hope is that they will get snatched up in the coming weeks.
