Ottawa Titans power their way to the top in week two
As I alluded to last week, this Titans roster is freaking amazing! This week they have 6 players in double digits, which is something very rare in this or any other league. Ovechkin led the pack with 12 points followed by Ryan Callahan (11), PK Subban, Max Pacioretty, Rick Nash and Craig Anderson all with 10 points. The Titans beat the next closest team by 19 points on the week and extended their lead overall in the league to 22 points over the Lone Star Brahmas..
The second place team for the week was the Portland Bruisers with 77 points. The Bruisers had a very balanced scoring attack as only one player for them scored in double digits. They were led by defensemen Zdeno Chara with 2 goals, who has been a bright spot on a struggling Bruins team. The Bruisers got at least 2 points from every active player in their lineup this week. I would take that each and every week as they are likely to find themselves in the top of the standings all season.
Rounding out the top three were the Dryden Rams with 74 points. The Rams were led by league superstar Joe Thornton with 1 goal and 4 assists. Thornton has consistently been at or near the top of assists in the league for the last 5 years and is a great asset to this team. Also helping out were defensemen Cam Fowler (10 pts), Dougie Hamilton (9 pts) and forward Jakub Voracek (9 pts). The Rams are currently sitting in 4th place in the east and are hoping to use this week’s success to launch themselves further up the eastern standings.
Around the league: Top teams in the East are Lone Star Brahmas, Portland Bruisers and Halifax Oceanics. Out West it is the Ottawa Titans, Montana Broncos and the Dayton Bombers. It was a moderately busy transaction week with 22 players being moved as GM’s try to fine tune their rosters. The top players by position are currently Rick Nash of the Ottawa Titans, TJ Brodie of the Lone Star Brahmas and Frederik Anderson of the Tri City Gambits.Remember: *Transaction deadline for the upcoming week is 12 noon on Sunday's
*Rosters need to be submitted by no later than 10AM on Monday's.
